1. Scream-a-Geddon, Dade City, FL

It will be hard to convince your mind that it’s all fun and games, that it’s not real blood splattered throughout or that the props and actors can’t harm you. You can take your pick of journeying through an infectious disease-laden labyrinth, taking your chances against the madness of hardened criminals, finding your way out of the dark woods before you become the Tate family’s next victim, or a variety of other haunted attractions sure to send you home screaming.

If you make it out alive, you’re one of the lucky ones.

3. Distorted Dreams Haunt, Lauderhill, FL

This truly horrific haunted house will either have you screaming to get out or screaming for more. Here it’s a battle of wits: did something really just brush up against you or did you imagine it? Do ghosts exist or is your mind playing tricks? It could have you questioning everything you thought you knew about reality, pushing you just far enough to force your mind out of your body.

7. A Petrified Forest, Altamonte Springs, FL

The forest may look like a normal part of Mother Nature, but the secrets within may have you regretting your journey through it. All through the trees are whispers from lives of a bygone era, pushing you closer and closer to a massive haunted house. You may think you can take refuge here, but rest assured that this is no safe haven. Spirits roam free, monsters lurk in every dark corner, and sheer terror awaits unsuspecting victims who are brave enough to enter.

8. Chamber of Terror, Tampa, FL

This nautical-based haunted house is the only one of its kind. Set aboard the docked American Victory Ship, you have fewer places to run and hide when the ghouls and ghosts come out to greet you. It’s a full sensory experience from start to finish. Beware the corners though—you never know what’s lurking about!

9. Face the Fear, Longwood, FL

Face the Fear is taking coulrophobia to new extremes. You’ll be surrounded by smiling, bright-eyed, funny faced clowns, but don’t let their outward appearances fool you. You never know what’s lurking beneath the paint, and they might be smiling because they’re looking forward to their next victim—will it be YOU?

10. Haunted Angelus House, Hudson, FL

Not all haunted attractions have to keep you up at night. The Haunted Angelus House is perfect family friend fun for those of all ages looking for a fright night. The 20-acre park is the world’s largest fully handicap accessible haunted attraction, putting guests of all ages and abilities in the Halloween spirit. If you’ve got the little ones in tow, stick with the haunted hayride—the haunted house might keep them awake for days!
