BOSTON AREA HAUNTED HOUSES
For those of you who love the more ghoulish side of Halloween, visits to one or more haunted houses always seems to be in order. While I’m no expert on this sort of thing, I’ve done some digging and wanted to share with you some information about area haunted houses you can plan to visit between now and the end of the month. I’ve not attended any of these locations so please share your comments to help others pick and choose where is the best haunted house.
Barrett’s Haunted Mansion is south of Boston in Abbington, MA. Oct 20 and 27th they will host their special Darkness Unleashed, which requires advance ticket purchase. Here is a $3 coupon good for visits Sunday thru Thursday. More details can be found on their website, BHMansion.com.
Factory of Terror has three locations in Worcester, West Warwick, RI and Fall River. More details about individual locations, tickets and hours can be found on their website, factoryofterror.com.
Salem’s 4-D Haunted House adds a twist by making this tour a 4-D extravaganza. You can also purchase combo tickets to get nightly walking tour through parts of Salem. Visit their website to get more info about tickets and the 4-D Haunted house.
Spooky World may be the largest of the haunted houses in the area. This year Spooky World presents “Nightmare in New England”. Based on feedback I read online, it seems like you will want to purchase their VIP tickets, but these come at a hefty price of ~$65. For more information visit their website, Spookyworld.com.
I’m going to stick with my gladiator / Halloween themed Furry Friday post for this week’s Bonus Fur. What do you think?
