Brutally honest here, not many haunted houses actually scare me. My wife and I are haunters and absolutely love everything about Halloween. However, that also means many haunted houses are subpar, to us, with their scare factor.

Not Nightmare on 19th Street. Trust me.

So don't waste time planning evenings, or even trips, around haunted houses that won't give you the thrill (scare) you're looking for. Bypass all that and make plans to check out Nightmare on 19th Street.

Nightmare features 4 different attractions in their 1.24 miles of scaring the bejeezus out of people. Blood Moon Manor, KarnEvil, and Krampus 3D are back for another year of fear, and tagging along is the newcomer, Castle Dominus.
