Haunted Overload

You guys. What if I told you there was an artistically crafted haunted attraction with large-scale, handmade exhibits like a 30-foot carved skull, rickety shacks, and a wooden train that has veered off elevated tracks? Not to mention costumed actors, perfect lighting, fog, and real carved and lit pumpkins? All set deep in a New Hampshire forest?

Well, that place exists, and it’s called Haunted Overload.

To enter, visitors must walk into the mouth of an enormous rotted tree.

Oh, just a clown … that’s four stories tall.

You have to see this place to believe it. A camera can’t capture the breathtaking enormity of the installations, which tower overhead when you’re standing in front of them.

Astounding in its beauty and terrifying in its scares, Haunted Overload is truly one of a kind. And I just discovered (thanks to Bean!) that it won ABC’s competition “The Great Halloween Fright Fight.” The victory is well-deserved.
