3. The Darkness - St. Louis, Missouri
Ranked by AOL.com as the #3 scariest place in America, The Darkness pops up on every haunted house list due to its unrivaled scenic design. Every single inch of The Darkness is themed, with 100+ animations, 50 live actors, and over 40 realistic Hollywood quality sets. In order to achieve this high magnitude of reality, they have to spend $150,000 just to renovate from last year. Just be prepared to spend a lot of time screaming in the dark. (Halloween)
2. Dead Acres Haunted Hoochie - Pataskala, Ohio
If you read our list last year, you know this was one we unfortunately overlooked—and our readers let us know. With that in mind and after a re-survey of our list, we did realize that Dead Acres Haunted Hoochie deserved a top spot on this years list. Billed as "The Darkest Show on Earth," these guys have one goal: to gross you out. And that they will with their gore-ific make up and tortuous scenes. Also, as the website design shows, they certainly aren't short on the crazy, which will only make your experience that much more intense. (Halloween)
1. Netherworld - Atlanta, Georgia
Netherworld is truly an awe-inspiring haunted house. They deserve particular credit because, though they buy standard animatronics and such, they then take them and re-create and re-invent them to make everything truly unique to their haunted house. They also have arguably the best make-up team in the industry. It would be hard to tell one of their fake dead apart from a real dead person. (Halloween)
So there they are. The top 13 haunted houses of 2007. Last years comments were rather colorful, but we do appreciate your feedback so feel free to let us know what you think. As always, happy gouling!
