Haunted Attractions near Mechanicsburg

Halloween season is here again, and that means that’s time once again to gather up your friends in your Chevy truck and head out to a haunted house, trail, or hayride. Ohio is home to more haunts than any other state, including these great haunted attractions near Mechanicsburg.

Kings Island Haunt — Mason

Spend Friday and Saturday nights at Kings Island’s Halloween Haunt, which USA Today called the Best Theme Park Halloween Event. Evil is everywhere in the park, with attractions like the Backwoods Bayou, Slaughterhouse, and the new Drums of the Dead. If the frights aren’t your thing, try the thrill of riding the roller-coasters in the dark. This may also be your last chance to catch a ride on the legendary Vortex, so take advantage.

Lewisburg Haunted Cave — Lewisburg

Looking for something a little more authentic? Travel 80 feet underground in a real limestone cave where horrors await. Named the longest haunted house in the world, you’ll work your way through over half a mile of sights and sounds to chill your blood. Not to mention the 30,000 live bats who call the cave home.

Brimstone Haunt — Wilmington

Ride the Haunted Hayride as monsters prowl the fields. Take a perilous hike in the Forgotten Forest and see if you return the same. New for this year, find your way out of the Psychosis maze or try your hand at surviving the Zombie Assault.

13th Floor Haunted House — Columbus

Visit one of the Best Haunted Houses in America, as named by the Discovery Channel. Two terrifying attractions pit you against zombies in Rise of the Dead, or running from an evil fear-feaster in Clown. Add to your enjoyment with Mini Escape Games that only give you 5 minutes to get out.

During the game

Stay safe and maximize your fun when tailgating by observing the following rules.
