Haunted Houses in Myrtle Beach
Visitors to Vacation Myrtle Beach resorts over Halloween will find plenty of Trick or Treat parties to take their kids to, and even a handful of costume parties planned just for grown-ups. However you may want to add to that spirit of Halloween by visiting one of the region’s haunted houses. There are several to choose from, many of them, but not all, are scary because of the live actors and the staged settings. Here are a few of the haunted houses and other scary attractions that you can visit during Halloween in and around Myrtle Beach.
Voted as the top haunt on the Grand Strand, Haunted Warehouse is just a short drive from downtown Myrtle Beach in the town of Conway. The warehouse, which has been visited by the Ghost Hunters team, is an 8,000 square foot building built in the 1890’s and located on Conway’s Riverwalk beneath the town’s Main Street Bridge. Also known as “Terror under the Bridge”, the warehouse is only open during the week leading up to and including Halloween. But this haunted warehouse is not for the faint of heart so if you are of a nervous disposition or have a heart condition, you might want to think twice before going. This year the Haunted Warehouse will be open from October 25th – 31st from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. The entrance fee is around $10.
Along North Ocean Blvd in Myrtle Beach you’ll find Ripley’s Haunted Adventure, a multi-million dollar haunted house attraction that features live actors, animated mannequins and terrifying special effects. This attraction is described by some reviewers as being not so much a haunted house with ghosts and goblins, but rather as a house full of scary serial killers, blood and gore. So be forewarned and expect the worst. If you are easily upset or have very small children, think twice before putting this on your to-do list.
Established in the mid 1980's, Nightmare Haunted House claims to be the East Coast’s scariest dark attraction for more than 20 years. The attraction is located at 1001 North Ocean Blvd and is opposite the Boardwalk. This is a place where your worst nightmares and bad dreams turn to reality. As you tour the house you’ll wander in and out of complete darkness and suddenly come face to face with ghastly characters such as Stalker, Meathead, Pigboy, Buddyman and Giggles. You can never be entirely sure of what horror waits round the next turn or through the next doorway.
These are some of the biggest and best haunted houses in the area so if you’re looking for a fun fright make sure to give these haunted houses a try.
