Special Note for 2018:

We’ve changed the way we give scores for this year. We are now using a weighted average that puts more emphasis on certain features of the haunt (IE: “How scary was it,” versus “Does the haunt’s location authenticate their theme”). That said, these scores should NOT be used in comparisons to previous seasons. We appreciate your understanding. Thanks and Happy Haunting! –The Scare Factor
