Be sure to check out their full list of 31 scary attractions, along with their other breakdowns:

  • Best Scare Actors: Netherworld
  • Most Extreme: Erebus
  • Best Year Round Attraction: 13th Floor (Disney’s Haunted Mansion came in at #2)

So here’s a question for you: when you go to a scare attraction, DO YOU LIKE BEING TOUCHED WHILE IN A HAUNTED HOUSE? It ends up that some haunted houses are changing their “No Touch” policy to one that creates a more interactive activity.  One house rules allow their actors to touch guests “above the shoulders and below the knee”.

Cause that’s safer than “no touching allowed”, isn’t it?
