The Haunted Attraction Association (HAA), the only official association in the haunt industry, has certified 14 haunts across the country as official “Top Haunted Attractions.” To be certified, they must be a member of HAA and meet a list of 10 criteria relating back to the mission of organizations – to protect customers, promote haunted attractions, and educate industry professionals.

 “The certification is a symbol of excellence that honors those attractions that are making strides above and beyond to focus on the safety and education of their employees, while developing a world-class haunting experience for guests,” HAA President John Eslich says.

Those of your for whom Halloween means a lot more than pumpkin-carving, candy-collecting and costume contests will have a lot of fun exploring certified ghostly destinations throughout the country.

If the holiday spirit to you is best exemplified by a truly terrifying experience, you may want to organize a road trip and visit more than just one.
