Haunted Houses

October can be about fall arriving and leaves changing, but to many it’s about as many horror movies and haunted houses as possible. In Alabama, there are plenty of options for the latter.

From local attractions to large venues in big cities, there are haunted houses throughout the state. Some are family friendly and some are serious when they tell you to not bring your kids. If it’s pure horror you’re looking for, below is a list of five of the top haunted houses in Alabama.

5. Maze of Terror, Titus

The scare factor according to Alabama Haunted Houses is “scary,” and it’s the attraction not recommended for young children. The Maze of Terror includes 10 rooms, an old farmhouse and a trip through a forest. The attraction serves as the largest fundraiser for the Titus VFD and proceeds go toward buying and servicing equipment.

4. Insanitarium Haunted Attraction, Pinson
