By this time, hopefully everyone’s in the Halloween spirit. But if you have a few stubborn friends who haven’t come around yet, we’ve got just the thing for you. Here are some of the spookiest, scariest, coolest haunted houses in Florida.
1. The Shallow Grave, Winter Haven
This terrifying attraction is open evenings on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays through November 1st. This guy whose head looks like a baseball will be there. Will you?
2. Enigma Haunt, Boca Raton
You only have a few more nights to get your scare on at Enigma Haunt: October 22-25, 29-31, and November 1. This lady who looks kind of like a mummy living in Downton Abbey is probably really scary.
3. Haunted Angelus House, Hudson
This haunted house has remaining dates on Oct. 21st - 25th and 28th - 31st. It seems kind of like a haunted Civil War re-enactment, so if you like a little history with your horror, come check it out.
4. Scream-A-Geddon, Dade City
Remaining dates October 21st through 25th and October 28th through November 1st. It's not just a haunted house, it's a Horror Park, with several scary attractions, and apparently one really angry lady.
5. Distorted Dreams Haunt, Lauderhill
Distorted Dreams Haunt will be held October 30th and 31st and is free. But a $20 donation to St. Jude's Children's Hospital will get you to the front of the line. I'd definitely pay them not to have to go in there.
6. A Petrified Forest, Altamonte Springs
Visit the 22nd through 24th or 28th through 31st. The theme this year is a ghost ship called The Abyss. Pirates aren't really that scary, but pirates with machine guns and chainsaws are.
7. Hellview Cemetery, St. Petersburg
This event started as a yard haunt and became local legend. The cemetery themed tour runs October 23rd through 25th and the 30th and 31st.
8. Legends Dark Amusements, Old Town, Kissimmee
This haunted house is actually open year-round, but it's a must-visit for Halloween. They're open Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday evenings (from only 7- 8 on Thursdays).
9. Murder House, Tampa
Murder House is open Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays in October. You know, in case you need some new material for your nightmares.
10. Haunt Nights, Jacksonville Beach
Remaining dates for Haunt Nights are the 22nd through 25th and the 28th through 31st. Redneck cannibals and murderous clowns, what more could you ask for?
