Haunt for the Holidays-Haunted attractions get into the Holiday Spirit by scaring the Dickens out of guests


Halloween is long gone, and Jolly Old St. Nick will be sliding down chimney’s real soon. The smell of pumpkins is giving way to the smell of Christmas trees and the sound of screams and chainsaws are being replaced with the sounds of carolers and jingle bells. There are, however, a few haunted attractions that haven’t let go of Halloween just yet. In fact, they’re embracing Christmas as yet another reason to scream, and though there be holly jolly sounds everywhere, they’re setting the fat man out to slay.What do you want for Christmas? How about a Haunted House Christmas?


It seems like the lines between Halloween and Christmas are blurring quite a bit these days. If you’re a haunt fan, it means you get just a few more shrieks until next October. Haunted attractions are finding huge audiences by stretching Halloween into the holidays. What better way to relieve a little stress than have it scared out of you? Here are a few of the haunted attractions we found that are open for the holidays.


Disneyland Haunted Mansion Holiday-Okay, so it’s not exactly scary, but it does give you Christmas mixed with Halloween. That’s good enough in our book. Every year Disneyland takes their Haunted Mansion and overlays it with characters and a story from A Nightmare Before Christmas. What happens is a spooky time for the whole family that is cute, and not really scary…but it gives us some Halloween Goodness. Official Website
