America's Best and Scariest Scream Park Haunted Houses and Halloween Events 2011

SCREAMPARK and a haunted house

Often people ask: What is a SCREAMPARK, and what is the difference between a SCREAMPARK and a haunted house? Aren't they one in the same? No, there are many differences between a SCREAMPARK and a haunted house. A typical haunted house is usually located inside an old warehouse, a closed-down box store, or some other indoor structure, and they usually offer one attraction or one major attraction with one or two possible side attractions. A SCREAMPARK is usually built on a large, open property such as a farm, a field or an amusement park, and they consist of multiple haunted houses all at that one location. Many SCREAMPARKS offer a Haunted Hayride as their main attraction, where guests (or victims) board a tractor pulled hayride through scenes where actors scare and torment causing heart pounding meters to rise.  But additionally, they’ll include other attractions like different style haunted houses, corn mazes, stage shows, haunted games, haunted trails or walks through the woods, or even a carnival. SCREAMPARKS typically have 5 or more different haunted attractions. When visiting one of America's best SCREAMPARKS you should keep in mind these events take a long time to complete and guests may NEVER make it out alive! 
 
Are SCREAMPARKS better than a typical haunted house? No, it’s really just a personal preference. Because they’re outdoors, SCREAMPARKS offer that authentically genuine, scary feel. But since SCREAMPARKS are mostly outdoors, they sometimes have less access to electric and are more susceptible to weather elements. However, amazing pyrotechnics are sometimes found at outside SCREAMPARKS, more so than typical haunted houses. Because of the outdoor element of SCREAMPARKS, most of the attractions are taken down in the off season and stored. Whereas a permanent haunted house building might actually stays up year round for the owners to work on and improve on year round. The level of detail, design, and special FX inside a typical haunted house is difficult to achieve at an outdoor SCREAMPARK event. Of course, there are some SCREAMPARK exceptions such as those on our list of the 13 best, biggest, and scariest HAUNTED SCREAMPARKS in America. Do you want to be scared UNDER THE STARS, under the LIGHT OF THE MOON? Then you need to visit one of America's BEST Haunted SCREAMPARKS.
