Haunted Houses in Pittsburgh - 2013

Halloween Events & Attractions around Southwestern Pennsylvania

Real Haunted Places    |     Halloween Costumes    |     Activities For Kids    |     CLOSED Haunted Houses

      Here is your complete guide to Haunted Houses in Pittsburgh & nearby PA, OH & WV. This list includes all of the top Halloween haunted attractions plus local haunts, hayrides & trails for 2013. Several large haunted attractions a bit further away from Pittsburgh have been included for those looking for a road trip! Big or small, if it is scary, gory or filled with simulated paranormal activity, it is listed here. This year, there is another page for non-scary events or activities for kids this Halloween, as well as a graveyard page for all of the haunted attractions of the past that are now closed. It's kind of nostalgic, in a macabre sort of way...

Any additional haunted houses that I missed or any updates should be emailed to me. I am continually looking to add more attractions and haunted houses. As always, happy haunting and have a safe Halloween!
