The 10 Best Haunted Houses And Trails In North Carolina
Come October, everyone is looking for a thrill. Maybe that thrill is visiting a
haunted road or an actual haunted house. Others prefer to guarantee their spooks by going to one of the many manufactured haunted trails or houses in our state. While these haunts are made up of actors and are on the exterior…not real….they can be just as fear inducing as a night’s stay in an abandoned mental asylum. Ready to get your spook on? Visit one of these ten haunted houses in North Carolina.
1. Kersey Valley Spookywoods, Archdale
Kersey Valley has made it to the top of numerous 'best haunts' lists. From being the scariest in North Carolina, to being featured in the top 13 haunted houses by USA today. There's no excuse (besides fear) to not experience the fright in your own state this October. From the creepy circus land, bloody asylum, and terrifying maze...you'll want to get your tickets ASAP to this one...if you dare.
2. Haunted Forest at Panic Point, Youngsville
Scream your way through 50 acres of terror at Haunted Forest. Attractions include haunted hayride, corn maze, dark trail, and carny crypt! For those in the Raleigh/Durham area..this is your best bet for a super thrill!
3. Nightmare Factory, Havelock

4. The Haunted Mill, Belmont

5. Boogerwoods Haunted Attraction, Rockwell
Boogerwoods was rated the most entertaining haunted attraction in North Carolina. 2015 rings in the 30th year for Boogerwoods, so you can be sure it will be extra scary. While terrifying, a silver lining of this scariness is that all money raised is donated to cystic fibrosis.

8. Stoney Point Trail of Terror, Fayetteville
While Stoney Point may have all the 'spooks,' it's actually an annual fundraiser put on by the local fire department. But don't think a good deed takes away from the terror capability. This spooky haunted house takes you through the 'mansion' and then into the forest where you'll be faced with an assortment of various terrors from clowns, monsters, and creepy creatures.
