The movie Psycho will always remain a classic. The story of the psychotic killer Norman Bates is probably one of the scariest in the history of cinema and so now wonder the Bates Hotel in Philadelphia is one of the scariest haunted houses in the whole United States. With carefully planned scenes and Hollywood quality make-up, the attraction generates hundreds of horror screams each day.

The Dent Haunted Schoolhouse

Cincinnati, Ohio is another possible destination for this year’s Halloween. Cincinatti is home to another notorious horror house, known as the ‘The Dent Haunted Schoolhouse’. For its realistic, hellish decors and for the record number of visitors it managed to horrify, this house has attracted lots of acclaiming reviews and even some much appreciated prizes in the industry of fear.

The entertainment capital of America, Las Vegas, couldn’t have been omitted from our US scariest attractions list. The Asylum and Hotel Fear horror house in Las Vegas might have you thinking about some abandoned hotel. Actually, the whole business is located into a series of connected trailers. While thrill seekers might find this even more exciting, this is definitely the place for claustrophobics!

Jerome, Arizona

Those who visited enough hoses of horror in their lives are probably bored of wannabe zombies and ghosts. Is this is the case with you, I suggest trying a whole new type of experience: ghost busting. Why not play a ghost buster yourself and visit a real ghost town? Arizona is famous for its ghost towns but none of them have managed to build such a bad reputation as Jerome, a defunct mining town. The spirits of the miners dead in accidents and resident suffering all kind of violent and awkward deaths are believed to stroll the empty streets at night.
