CHARLOTTE, N.C., Sept. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- When darkness falls, fear rises and this year SCarowinds, the premiere Halloween attraction of the Carolinas, is more frightening than ever. The fun begins on Saturday, September 14 and continues on weekend nights through October 27. 

Now in its fourteenth year, SCarowinds Halloween Haunt features 12 haunted attractions including:  London Terror, can you survive the murderous streets of this historic city?
