From Our 2021 Review:

Overall Rating: 8.82/10

Our second haunt of the season was the incredible Sweet Dreams Scare House (SDSH). SDSH is a walking trail curving in on itself and its visitors’ nightmares.

We took time this year to venture back into the woods at the Haunted Farm outside of Hendersonville, NC.

Overall Rating: 8.95/10

Exit 13 Haunted House radiates a notorious aura of serious scariness in its looks, atmosphere, intense actors, and content.

The year 2021 marks the return of Pirates of Emerson Haunted Themed Park as a walk-through attraction, and it’s an experience we truly missed.

Overall Rating: 9.03/10

Castle Blood is not your typical haunted attraction; it doesn’t offer, chainsaws, clowns, gore, blood (wait that’s in their name), or most typical haunt cliches. In fact, scares are not even their main focus. However, we were pleasantly surprised at the number of scares we encountered this year,. . .
