Haunted Houses Extending Opening Time

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.”

As The Genre Traveler, Carma Spence loves to view the world through Genre-Coloured glasses. In other words, she sees the world through a lens of science fiction, fantasy, and horror, where trash cans can be Daleks in disguise and neighborhood forests can harbor faeries and sprites. Magic realism is real! Or at least you can choose to see the world that way to add to the fun and awe of life.
