2017 Haunted Houses (WNY & surrounding areas)

If you think there's something I've missed or find a dead link, send me an e-mail.

Check the websites for exact operating dates (I've only listed the opening dates).

Prices may change as the season goes on - I've based this on what's on the website at the start of the season.  Some of the lower prices are online only deals and tax of course is not included.  Some of the higher prices are for VIP (no wait) passes.  Always check prices yourself - I'm not responsible if they change or are completely different when you show up.

And on the way to the haunts, make sure to listen for me from 6p - 10p on Star 102.5!
