One of America's Best Haunted Houses, The ScareHouse in Pittsburgh, will no longer allow children aged 7 or under to enter their attraction. "Creepo the Clown is overtaking Santa in our haunted house this year," ScareHouse Creative Director Scott Simmons said. "While Creepo wants to destroy Christmas for intruding on the Halloween season, the rest of us at The ScareHouse want to ensure that the magic of the upcoming holidays remains strong for children. And our haunted house is most definitely NOT appropriate for anyone who still believes in Santa Claus."
