Halloween is almost here! While that means a lot of candy, ghosts, ghouls and Great Pumpkins, it also means the end of the Haunt Season is also near. Soon we’ll say goodbye to the events that scared us, ensnared us and double dared us to walk into the hallowed, haunted halls and scared the living snot out of us. Before we pack up the chainsaws, lift the fog, and put the last bullet in the last head of the last walker, we are going to give you the chance to vote for your favorite haunted event with the return of the third annual Thrill Weekly Polls! The Thrill Weekly Polls give guests and fans like you the chance to vote for the Best of the Best in a wide range of categories in the Amusement Industry.
This week we want you to choose the King of Halloween! The King of Halloween awards the best haunted event for 2012. e As many always say, Horror is very subjective…so are opinions of what the best is! You may choose the best based on how scary something is, or how short the lines are. Perhaps you like the shows at a haunted event, or you like your King of Halloween to have Trick or Treating. Vote for the event that you think is the best, (whether it’s scary or family friendly) and be sure to spread the word via Facebook and Twitter!
There are so many different haunts out there, that we wanted to crown the best Halloween events not only in theme parks, but also the stand alone non-theme park events. So be sure to vote for both!
Theme Park Haunted Events
Theme park haunted events are defined as a haunted event that takes place within a theme park. They are usually special events, and may or may not be included with park admission. These are NOT independent haunts. To qualify as a theme park haunt, the event must be held at a theme park or amusement that has a regular operating season other than Halloween. Examples include but are not limited to-Universal Studios Florida’s Halloween Horror Nights, Howl O Scream at Busch Gardens, Haunt at Knott’s Scary Farm, Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party at Magic Kingdom.
If you do not see your favorite THEME PARK haunt listed, please feel free to write it in, however if your submission is not a theme park haunted event IT WILL NOT BE COUNTED!

Non Theme Park Haunted Events
Non theme park haunted events are defined as those haunted events that do not take place within a theme park. They are at a location that may serve as a museum, fairgrounds, or other business. They are only offered during the Halloween season. They may also be open year round, however the primary function of the business is as a Haunted Attraction only. They are also not related in any way, shape or form to a theme park or amusement park. Examples include, but are not limited to NetherWorld, Fright Farm, Goretorium and many that are similar.
