The fastest growing industry in America is the Halloween industry. We’ve seen it grow over the last ten years from a 1-billion dollar industry to a near 15-billion dollar industry. Halloween has grown to levels no one ever expected. Today, we see millions of home owners decorating their houses, turning their garages into haunted houses, changing their backyards into cemeteries and inviting people from around the neighborhood into their own personal HAUNTED HOUSE! Today tens of thousands of home owners buy zombies, monsters, tombstones, and crypts and even use specialized lighting to display and showcase their masterpiece. Many even create CGI FX in their windows. The days of Halloween being a kid’s holiday all about trick-or-treating are OVER! Even moms are getting into the act buying Halloween themed decorations to make the interior of the house Halloween themed as well.

Hauntworld unveils the best places to find the scariest actors in America, so be warned if you dare enter these attractions and prepare to see the most realistic make up, monsters, acting and scream machines on EARTH!  What makes a haunted house great is their staff. It’s the actors who make unbelievable believable. The actors are the ones who make their victims’ skin crawl. They can make you run for your life, begging for mercy. They are the ones who make a haunted house the legend they have become!  Some actors are so extreme and over-the-top, they have the ability to instill such fear that results are blood curdling screams, panic attacks, and even wetting of the pants!

The fastest growing industry in America is the Halloween industry. We’ve seen it grow over the last ten years from a 1-billion dollar industry to a near 15-billion dollar industry.

Even moms are getting into the act buying Halloween themed decorations to make the interior of the house Halloween themed as well.



You might be wondering how does this list differ from our list of America’s best Haunted Screamparks, but here we focus strictly on who has the best haunted hayride or haunted trail. Our best Screampark list was focused strictly on who has the best overall mega Halloween Screampark, but here we are focused on just one single beloved attraction… the best haunted hayride or the best outdoor haunted trail. Hayrides have been a Halloween tradition for decades. Although a haunted hayride is usually as scary as a haunted house, there’s simply no other experience than a wagon ride through the woods with your friends. In the older days, haunted hayrides were nothing more than just that an eerie ride through dark, desolate woods, and haunted trails where not much different. In days past, they were mainly a walk through the woods after dark. Today, these events are HIGH TECH with OVER THE TOP actors, sets, special FX and so much more. Some haunters have taken haunted trails so over-the-top, you believe you are in another World, inside a Hollywood movie, being stalked by real demons, killers and monsters. Haunted Hayrides, Haunted Woods & Haunted Trails offer an experience that an indoor haunted house cannot: running in the dark under a pale moonlight, with real crickets, wind blowing, a chill in the air, and the fear of the unknown! Today’s haunted hayrides and haunted trails really bring the SCREAMS in a major way, so this year find a good haunted hayride or trail and prepare for a true authentic Halloween experience like no other.

Utah Haunted Houses are some of the scariest and best in America!  Hauntworld.com rates and reviews the best and Scariest haunted houses, haunted attractions, and Halloween events in America!  Fear Factory is located in Salt Lake City. Fear Factory is one of the best and scariest haunted houses in Utah.  Read the full review and story of Fear Factory in Salt Lake City. Please share this page and leave your reviews of one of Utah's best and scariest haunted house.  When you find yourself in the SLC area go to Fear Factory.

To learn more about Utah's fear Factory visit their websit below:


If you are daring enough to endure a blood curdling fright that will freeze the marrow in your bones, then by all means... pay a visit to the Fear Factory in Salt Lake City, Utah.

You’ve heard it all before… Spook alleys and haunted attractions claiming they are the best or the most terrifying or the scariest attraction ever. Well, the Fear Factory will throttle your adrenaline into overdrive by a fear factor of TEN!

It all started over a hundred and thirty years ago. A cement factory known as the Portland Cement Works began its operation in the heart of industrial Salt Lake City.  What’s so special about that? Well, nothing really, except the horrific deaths that occurred that will make bile etch its way into the back of your throat.

Start with George Howe. He was in charge of maintenance on the coal crusher, a piece of machinery powered by giant grinding gears. Poor George. (You know where this is going.) Alone on a graveyard shift, George was applying oil to the gears deep within the crusher. The machine grabbed his sleeve and slowly started pulling him into the giant gears. Unable to free himself, George screamed for help, but the solid factory walls muted his terror. Pop! His arm snapped from its socket and ripped from his torso. George Howe was fully conscious as his entire body twisted into the rotating gears before being torn and mutilated.

For factory managers, this first accident was shocking, unexpected, and unfortunate, but as the frequency of accidents increased, the workers grew numb as the factory seemed intent on keeping its gears oiled in blood. This cement factory would take victims in the blink of an eye, leaving bodies mauled, dismembered, burned, electrocuted, or beheaded.



 


Charles Whitner only worked at the factory for two short weeks before it claimed him as a victim as he attempted to navigate his way across the upper floors of the factory. The rising steam from the potash and chemical vats below made him so dizzy that he slipped and slowly slid toward the boiling liquid.  He clawed at the burning steel until his fingers melted to the bone. Charles disintegrated in the chemicals.

Too dangerous to keep running, the cursed Portland Cement Works closed its doors. Decades passed, and other businesses acquired the property, but the building kept claiming victims to satisfy its apparent hunger for death. These businesses never lasted long. Falling into disrepair, the old factory became home to transients and wanderers. A few gruesome murders and a strange death have authorities baffled to this day. A man was found decapitated on the railroad tracks just a dozen feet from the Fear Factory entrance, his body still in a kneeling position. Was it the curse of the cement factory?  
    
In 2011, the current owners acquired the property and explored its expansive spaces, silos, and underground tunnels…yes, underground tunnels!  Soon after, the Fear Factory Haunted House was born. This is where it gets freaky. At night, if it’s very quiet, one can hear distant screams of terror echo off the cement walls. Is it George Howe’s ghost? Is it Charles Whitner’s spirit, or something else…something demonic? Just ask anyone who works at the Fear Factory in Salt Lake. They’ve all heard the screams and seen shadows stare down from the ceiling then dash away. What’s even more scary is the haunting sound of a little girl laughing in the middle of the night during the witching hour. There are no historical records that account for the death of a child at the factory, so what is it—a child, or a dark entity mimicking something innocent to lure you in? The hauntings can be so terrifying that Ghost Adventures featured The Fear Factory in an episode on the Travel Channel.



 

 
We asked owner, Rob Dunfield, about the success of Fear Factory. “Our success in the haunted house business can be directly attributed to the drive and determination of my amazing staff. Together we are always motivated to providing the highest quality haunted house event for our customers WITH the highest level of pure terror style acting, and our customers LOVE it!  Which is why we have such a loyal customer base in Salt Lake City and far beyond.” 

There’s a reason the Fear Factory attracts thousands upon thousands of haunt enthusiasts every season. What’s contained within the concrete will terrorize your soul. The owners just didn’t rent out a warehouse and decorate the walls like all the other spook alleys. During the 45-minute adventure, the Fear Factory takes its patrons through the creepy underground tunnels of the old cement factory, where the damp catacombs reside. And that’s now all! Thrill seekers will also endure over 11 sections of the Fear Factory on a half dozen acres of land filled with graveyards, wastelands, torture chambers, an infirmary for the insane, a sadistic chapel, a fun house filled with possessed clowns, and a tower catwalk 75 feet in the air; the only way down is a two story slide.

If being chased by psychos with chain saws or navigating an escape through the Hell Silo isn’t enough, adrenaline junkies will get their kicks trying the bungee free fall or the 200-foot, spine-tingling zip line! The Fear Factory even uses groundbreaking technology for a thrilling virtual reality experience that will have your heart beating like a kettledrum.
  




 

There are things in this world that will never be understood. This cement factory has seen its fair share of death, and if you are a believer that places can hold energy from terrible tragedies, then visit the Fear Factory—if you dare. Something very strange is going on. It’s no coincidence that it’s located at 666 West in Salt Lake City. There’s no denying why this event is touted one of the scariest haunted scream parks in ALL of America, not just Utah.  Do you have what it takes to navigate through this factory of fear? Because, this isn’t just another haunted house in your neighborhood; this is the real thing, and this is why the Fear Factory is starting to be widely known nationwide as the icon of fear!

Every year we our main article is the top 13 scariest haunted houses in America but this year we are featuring the 31 scary haunted attractions for the year 2016. 
 
The fastest growing industry in America is the Halloween industry. We’ve seen it grow over the last ten years from a 1-billion dollar industry to a near 15-billion dollar industry. Halloween has grown to levels no one ever expected. Today, we see millions of home owners decorating their houses, turning their garages into haunted houses, changing their backyards into cemeteries and inviting people from around the neighborhood into their own personal HAUNTED HOUSE! Today tens of thousands of home owners buy zombies, monsters, tombstones, and crypts and even use specialized lighting to display and showcase their masterpiece. Many even create CGI FX in their windows. The days of Halloween being a kid’s holiday all about trick-or-treating are OVER! Even moms are getting into the act buying Halloween themed decorations to make the interior of the house Halloween themed as well.


Halloween is not an official holiday. They don’t call off school and work for Halloween. You don’t have to buy anyone a gift or cook a turkey or take your spouse to dinner with cards & chocolates. Halloween is a holiday that millions upon millions of Americans CHOOSE to celebrate and everyone celebrates in different ways. Some take their kids to pumpkin patches and Fall Festivals. Many enjoy decorating their house and yard. Others become obsessed with the haunting of the holiday. Some even build their own haunted house experience right in their own home. And millions visit America’s best and scariest haunted houses to celebrate the holiday! In fact, haunted houses and Halloween attractions now make up more than 1 billion dollars of the ever growing Halloween industry. Every year in March, haunted house owners and operators across America converge in St Louis, Missouri for the National Halloween and Haunted Attractions tradeshow produced by Transworld Exhibits, where these haunt owners can view and purchase new products, monsters, animations, special FX, and more. Watch Hauntworld Video of the Show here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5XGBQzsNYCo

Haunted Houses are going over-the-top bigger, better, and scarier than ever. In fact, haunted houses no longer just compete with other local haunts in their area, but haunted houses across the country. Visiting, attending and traveling to haunted houses is now an America phenomenon as people are using sites like www.hauntworld.com to find the best haunted attractions in the World to travel to attend. America has spoken, and they want HAUNTED HOUSES in the Fall not horror movies and not videos games. They want live, in-your-face scares combined with high tech scares for the utmost in lifelike scares. They want what a roller coaster can’t deliver no matter how high or fast they’re built. It really is strange how big the haunted house industry has become because only a few short years ago the Halloween retail industry wanted the haunt industry removed from their show now they want them back… too late!  

We are now also seeing film makers creating horror movies inspired by haunted houses, or film makers utilizing haunts in the off season as film sets for horror movies.  Films such as Zombieland rented haunted houses to utilize their unreal sets to film their movies. SYFY Channel recently rented out 13th Gate to film an entire movie. It wasn’t that long ago that horror movies where the staple thing to do during the weeks of October but now the biggest horror films open during other parts of the year.  We live in a day and age where content for a digital World is sought and the haunt industry provide the richest forms of drama, colorful characters, and exciting backgrounds for reality television to tv specials. Lastly we are seeing the haunt industry splinter off into all different types of attractions from EXTREME to ESCAPE puzzle solving attractions to Zombie Hunts.. The bottom line is no matter what someone dreams up the concept of scream based attractions are here to stay and who knows where it leads us to next. This is what haunted houses do this is our passion and we present to you a list of can’t miss haunts.  The Haunted House industry has been made BEING SCARED a MULTI BILLION DOLLAR INDUSTRY from escape games, haunted houses, corn mazes, hayrides, zombie runs, escape rooms, to even horror based TV shows to fill the void left when haunts close their doors at the stroke of midnight each October 31st.


Now that Halloween 2016 is here it’s time to find the best, the scariest, and the biggest over the top haunted houses and Halloween attractions in America.  Prepare yourself for the biggest screaming season in Haunted history.

You might be wondering how does this list differ from our list of America’s best Haunted Screamparks, but here we focus strictly on who has the best haunted hayride or haunted trail. Our best Screampark list was focused strictly on who has the best overall mega Halloween Screampark, but here we are focused on just one single beloved attraction… the best haunted hayride or the best outdoor haunted trail. Hayrides have been a Halloween tradition for decades. Although a haunted hayride is usually as scary as a haunted house, there’s simply no other experience than a wagon ride through the woods with your friends. In the older days, haunted hayrides were nothing more than just that an eerie ride through dark, desolate woods, and haunted trails where not much different. In days past, they were mainly a walk through the woods after dark. Today, these events are HIGH TECH with OVER THE TOP actors, sets, special FX and so much more. Some haunters have taken haunted trails so over-the-top, you believe you are in another World, inside a Hollywood movie, being stalked by real demons, killers and monsters. Haunted Hayrides, Haunted Woods & Haunted Trails offer an experience that an indoor haunted house cannot: running in the dark under a pale moonlight, with real crickets, wind blowing, a chill in the air, and the fear of the unknown! Today’s haunted hayrides and haunted trails really bring the SCREAMS in a major way, so this year find a good haunted hayride or trail and prepare for a true authentic Halloween experience like no other.

What is a Screampark? The term Screampark is something we want to educate the public about. It’s a haunted event that features several attractions all at one location. Typically, the staple attraction is a hayride, but not always. Screamparks are usually found on farms, within amusement parks, or on huge plots of land. Most Screamparks feature different types of attractions such as hayrides, haunted houses, corn mazes, haunted trails, blacklight 3D haunted houses, live shows and more.  So who has the best Screampark in America? We are judging this category by the mass amount of different attractions and the quality of them all. Some Screamparks do not live up to their marketing hype when their “multiple attractions” are mostly small and gimmicky. However, there are several who are beyond your wildest dreams immense and action-packed with horrific fun. Our list of BEST Screamparks not only provide hours of entertainment, but leave you gut wrenching and heart pounding.  The biggest operational difference between a screampark and a haunted house is most screamparks have to set up everything each year. In comparison, an indoor haunted house is usually a permanent location, so the sets, animations, and FX are typically better and more detailed. However a Screampark makes up the difference with sheer number of attractions, actors, and time spent at the event. So who has the best Screamparks in America and why?

Well before I was editor of Hauntworld, I was always interested in the haunted houses, horror and science fiction. As a kid I watched everything from Bela Lugosi Dracula or Christopher Lee to Frankenstein or Mummy. My all-time favorite horror creature is Lon Chaney Jr. in his portrayal as The Wolfman. I would watch him battle Frankenstein over and over hoping for a different outcome each time!

Horror movies have changed a lot from the infancy when Universal made Dracula, Frankenstein, Wolfman, Mummy or the cult classic Creature From The Black Lagoon. I believe slasher movies like Texas Chainsaw Massacre made people afraid to enter an old house. Films like The Exorcist created fear of the devil and demonic possessions. Perhaps many of todays best horror movies can be traced back to Texas Chainsaw Massacre and The Exorcist.

For many Americans, watching a good scary movie is a favorite pastime and great for a first date or a way to celebrate the Halloween season. We love horror movies and now I present our top 13 bone chilling, scream machine horror movies that will make your skin crawl and give you nightmares. Our list was partially created based on the impact they had on society at the time they where released.  For example Exorcist had people going to Church, Poltergiest had people checking under beds, Pyscho made people afraid of motels, and Dracula probably the original Monster movie made people believe in real monsters.  Share your top 10 or top 13 scariest horror movies on our facebook page.
