Top 10 Scariest and Best Halloween Haunts in Amusement Parks

 

 



Top 10 Amusement Park Halloween Haunted Events
Today, amusement parks are full-blown into the Haunted House business putting on some of the biggest haunted events in America, but some amusement parks do haunting better than the rest.  Through our travels, we’ve found that many amusement parks simply produce a low-budget haunted venue in an attempt to extend their amusement season.  However, there are some amusement parks that take their haunting seriously and take their Halloween attractions to another level.  Last year, we visited Universal Studios Florida and Tampa Busch Gardens to settle the score of who has the best Halloween event.

Universal could win due to the sheer fact they have so many attractions already suited for Halloween:  'Jaws', ‘Men in Black', the Monster Café, the Horror Make Up Show, even Shrek 3D movie is based around Halloween.  Universal also has an edge with their collection of horror movies to pull from like Frankenstein, Dracula and the new Wolfman movie.  But take all that away, and Universal still produces some of the most detailed haunted houses we've ever seen.  Plus, their attention to detail within the park itself really sets them apart, and we really loved the scare zones too.  On the flipside, Tampa Busch Gardens wins on unique originality and hard core haunting.  Tampa really pushes the envelope with IN YOUR FACE scares more so than Universal.  Tampa Busch Gardens in our opinion had the scarier attractions while Universal overall brought the fire power in detail and park decor and the sheer volume of what they offer.  We highly recommend both, and we hope to visit MORE amusement park haunts in the future.

When trying to choose between Universal Studios Florida and Tamba Busch Gardens we suggest you VISIT BOTH attractions.  Tampa and Orlando are only an hour apart and you will truely visit the two best haunted screamparks in America.
