Halloween Time: Do you like haunted houses?

I've been to a few over the years. All different quality and style. Your thoughts?

I love Halloween and all that spooky stuff... but I'm not fond of those haunted house attractions. Love them in their existence, but not being made to go in them. If I was more comfortable with the public like that, I'd rather be on the side that's doing the haunting and decorating of it. (I used to do up our front yard for Halloween. I'd always kind of wanted to make a walk through in our back yard...)


Honestly, I'd rather do a ghost tour of a supposed hunted place.

I'd rather watch a Discovery Channel show about haunted houses than go to an actual haunted house. The last time I went to one when I was a kid I realized "this is lame as hell"

I do love Halloween though, I'm just not into the jump-scare scene of haunted houses

By haunted houses do you mean thematic haunted houses you see at carnivals and amusement parks or do you mean old houses that give a creepy vibe?

I was thinking something like these. But it doesn't matter if you choose to comment on the old houses that creep you out. I'll go with the flow.

Well the ones in amusement parks and carnivals hire actors, so I don't care about them. As for "real" ones... well ghosts don't exist, so I don't believe in haunted houses. Some houses are noisy at night, but that's not due to paranormal activity.

Now... Disney's Hunted Mansion is not quite the same as the typical Halloween attractions, I love the Disney ride. It's more fun than anything.


I haven't been to too many of those haunted house things, maybe just three or so? But the best known one I've been to is the attraction they do at Eastern State Penitentiary in PA.



Now that place IS supposed to be legit haunted - or so they say - so that's kind of doing both at once, I guess? Though I'd still rather do a ghost tour than the Halloween thing again. Plus, it would get a better/real look around.



Someday I want to do the tour at our Fort Delaware. Having gone with a friend to the meet and greet Jason and Grant from Syfy's Ghost Hunters did prior to it, and then we ended up seeing them and the rest of their bunch leave on the little ferry boat to go over there afterwards... I was rather envious that I couldn't go too. lol (Although having quietly stuck around we ended up meeting Josh Gates too, since he was hosing the live Halloween show they were doing there and was the last to get his butt off the bus and to the ferry.)
