According to the International Association of Haunted Attractions (IAHA), haunted houses aren’t just for Halloween anymore.

“There are over four dozen haunted attractions scattered across North America that are open all or most of the year,” says Bill Criscione, Vice President of the IAHA. Many of these haunted attractions are in tourist rich cities like Myrtle Beach, Wisconsin Dells, or Niagara Falls.

In recent years, even seasonal haunted houses have dramatically expanded their operating schedules. “Many now open in early September,” said IAHA President Timothy Gavinski, “and with Halloween falling on a Wednesday this year, many will stay open through early November.”
