Best New Haunted Attraction Award

Best New Haunted Attraction

Each year, new haunted attractions open and compete with the area’s elite Haunted Attractions to become the best of the best. This award is to recognize the new haunted attraction which stands above the rest of new entries for that particular year/season.

Description & Criteria

Any Haunted Attraction is eligible for consideration of this award during their first season of operation.

Please note:

  • Should an attraction close and re-open in a future year, it will not be eligible for consideration.
  • Should an attraction change locations or ownership, it will not be eligible for consideration.
