The winner of The Great Halloween Fright Night on ABC, this famous fear fest is a haunt with a lot of heart (and intestines, and brains, and…) which raises funds each year for the Cocheco Valley Humane Society.
From scaredy cats to doggedly devoted admirers of the horror genre, this villainous venue offers something for everyone. For the hard core Halloween attraction aficionado there’s the haunted trail, which just might lead to a dead end for those who dare to tread the path. However, things that go bump in the night won’t give you goosebumps when seen in the sunlight, so if your family includes a “little monster” or if you are simply dying to go to a haunted attraction without experiencing a terrified reaction, take a Day Haunt walk through an actor-free atmosphere filled with sets that would fill you with fear once the sun sets. For one evening only Haunted Overload also offers a look at the lair without scares during Fright Night Lite, which give visitors the opportunity to see all the special effects and eerie lighting without any encounters with evil.
When: Each Friday and Saturday evening in October
Where: 1660 Orchard Park Road in Buffalo
Admission: $5 donation to SPCA Serving Erie County
