America Haunts Announces Opening Dates for Haunted Houses and Attractions

Aug 26, 2013, 10:00 ET from America Haunts

DETROIT, Aug. 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- America Haunts, home to more than 30 of the most terrifying, bloodcurdling scream-inducing haunted houses and attractions in the United States, announced its 2013 season opening schedule.

Starting Sept. 6 at The Edge of Hell and The Beast in Kansas City, Mo., fans will get their first look at the newest crop of monsters and zombies from beyond.  Sixteen more America Haunts attractions will open their doors for the season the following week on Friday the 13th (as if that day was not scary enough already).

America Haunts attractions annually lure the bravest souls while providing the most safe, fun and horrifying haunted entertainment.  To maintain the standard of excellence in the haunted attraction industry, each venue works year-round to present guests with an even more spine chilling experience than their last visit.  Staffs featuring high quality technical crews and talented makeup artists and actors combine to provide thrill-seekers the Hollywood-quality scare they seek.

"Each America Haunts attraction has the ability to either scare you a little or a lot," said Ben Armstrong of America Haunts.  "We have the most fun with those who think that no haunted house is going to scare them.  It's fun to then see them become so terrified they don't even think twice about leaving behind friends and family to save themselves."
