.......... Frighty Awards: Haunted House of the Year - FrightTour

Frighty Awards: Haunted House of the Year   
Author FrightTour Sunday 06 November 2016 - 00:00:46      

The time has come for us to announce our "Scariest Haunted House" from locations we visited during our 2016 FrightTour! In all, this year we have experienced over thirty-five heart pounding attractions including cornfields, houses, menacing mazes, terrifying hayrides and wooded trails. Therefore, you could see how difficult it must have been to list our top five haunted houses from our annual tour. But hey, someone has to do it! Just like our decision for our other awards, this one was quite difficult to make. There are many things within one house that can either make it or break it. We take the talent of actors, the set design, storyline and of course how scary the attraction is all into consideration when comprising this list. We would like to personally thank all of those we have met along the way this year, all the talented actors who scared us. Click below to find out who is our 2016 Scariest Haunted House of the Year!

5. Insanity: FrightWorld | Tonawanda
Date of Visit: October 16, 2016 | OFFICIAL HAUNT PAGE | READ REVIEW



Of course our 2013, 2014 and 2015 Haunted Attraction of the Year has some of the most intense haunted houses on our list. FrightWorld is not only home to our third top house but closes out our top five! Insanity is a totally different breed of haunt where you must find your way out through a mess of chainlink fence, fog, dark corners and flashing strobe lights. Of course FrightWorld turns it up a notch with not only filling the space with lingering dense fog but also menacing actors who pop up right in front of you. It is enough to pull your hair out and was most likely one of the most intense attractions we have been through!

4. Prison of the Dead: Shocktoberfest | Sinking Spring, Pennsylvania
Date of Visit: September 30, 2016 | OFFICIAL HAUNT PAGE | READ REVIEW



This year Prison of the Dead from our 2013, 2014 and 2015 Haunted Hayride of the Year winner, Shocktoberfest scared the living daylights out of us. You walk through twisted rusting halls of a precinct where the light flickers and then turns off. You see no one, then when the lights turn back on your face to face with a terrifying inmate or prison guard. Long, dark, twisted and menacing. Prison of the Dead delivers and tingles the spine with a chilling walk through some of the most elaborate sets we have ever seen. Where have you ever "escaped" through underground tunnels to make a run for freedom? This is the first year, we have listed Prison of the Dead so high on our ranker. Kudos to them!

3. NightStalkers: FrightWorld | Tonawanda, New York
Date of Visit: October 16, 2016 | OFFICIAL HAUNT PAGE | READ REVIEW



Straight from our 2013, 2014 and 2015 Haunted Attraction of the Year comes an attraction so sinister, so twisted that is was one of the most terrifying experiences we have ever been through! The lights have been turned out, everything is dark and your group has been given a single flashlight. You think, "Ok, no problem, it shouldn't be too bad!" But then a few steps in, your flashlight begins to flicker and you realize, you can't control it and then without warning it turns off! What you think is fake is real, what you think is real is fake and your eyes begin playing tricks on you. NightStalkers is a new breed of a haunted house, a terrifying, sinister creation!

2. Uninvited: The Awakening | New York, New York
Date of Visit: October 21, 2016 | OFFICIAL HAUNT PAGE | READ REVIEW



Added to the tour due to torrential rains, Uninvited: The Awakening was an attraction that we sort of went into blind. There was no substantial reviews or information regarding what the Uninvited was about... until now! This theatrical, immersive, interactive and spine curling attraction is New York City's Scariest Haunted Attraction. Once we were deep in the bowels of purgatory, we were at the mercy of the restless spirits lurking in the fog. Innovative and barrier reducing, the Uninvited brings the experience straight to your face with strong content and scenes of carnage. After an hour and a half experience, we wanted more!

1. Hundred Acres Manor | Bethel Park, Pennsylvania
Date of Visit: October 15, 2016 | OFFICIAL HAUNT PAGE | READ REVIEW



You might be scratching your head while wondering how we could award Hundred Acres Manor our coveted "Haunted House of the Year". While the manor is comprised of six different attractions it is still one continuous walk through allowing us to consider it as one gigantic house. Now that we got that out of the way, this monstrous haunted house was exquisite! It had everything we were looking for, detailed sets, elaborate storylines, talented actors all within one terrifying attraction! We loved it from the moment we descended in the elevator to the moment we walked out the exit. Hundred Acres Manor is Pittsburgh's Scariest Haunted Attraction!
