As summer comes to an end and pumpkins, hoodies and Timberlands take center stage, there’s one fall activity that millions of people around the world look forward to…

Haunted houses.

Hate em or love em, haunted houses are a fall season staple, especially across the midwest. Everyone can remember their first time going, and they’re often flooded with teens who are too cool to be scared or kids who think they can handle whatever fake horrors are presented.

But did you know that Ohio is actually one of the best places in America to visit a haunted house? As a matter of fact, six particular houses (three of which are in Northeast Ohio) have made a very distinguished, and scary, list.

The Haunted Attraction Association has put together its 2022 list of Top Haunts. If you live in Akron, Cincinnati, or Columbia Station then you certainly have something to look forward to this fall.

Keep scrolling to see the six Ohio haunted houses that you should check out this season!
