5 Best Haunted Houses Near Boston

New England is well-known for harboring some of the spookiest places in the country. In fact, some of the best haunted houses are located just outside of Boston. From Witch’s Woods to Fear Town, there is something “spooktacular” for everyone.

Check out our top 5 picks for the best, and scariest, Boston haunted house attractions to visit on your next trip to Boston this Halloween season.

Barrett’s Haunted Mansion

Barrett’s Haunted Mansion is pretty scary on its own. However, for just two nights only, they have what is called “Darkness Unleashed”. Sounds pretty scary, right?

On October 20th and October 27th from 7 pm to 11 pm, Barrett’s Haunted Mansion is in complete darkness. While that is scary on its own, there is one more thing to add. When the darkness of the mansion falls, the creatures within are no longer bound by the rules.

If you’re interested in checking out Barrett’s Haunted Mansion, reservations are for groups of 2-5 people, and you will have to sign a waiver before you enter. You must also be 18 years of age.

Witch’s Woods

Witch’s Woods is one of the most popular haunted houses, or places, for people to visit near Boston. Here, you can go in Castle Morbid, take a haunted hayride, enter Nightmare Mansion, and more. But hey, if you can’t handle horror, there is always the great Jack O’Lantern Jamboree.

The Jack O’Lantern Jamboree is a display of hundreds of beautiful, illuminated pumpkins that have been professionally carved. It is free to visit.

Haunted Overload

This terrifying adventure is basically summed up in the name itself. Haunted Overload is not for the faint of heart. Have you ever been lost in the dark woods?

Scary enough, right? Now add some terrifyingly twisted creatures, handmade sets, award-winning props, and some rather interesting entertainment. The bottom line is, you’re bound to be terrified.

Tickets to this show sell out astonishingly fast. Make sure you purchase ahead of time to avoid missing out. With a free ticket purchase, a month’s worth of nightmare comes free!

Fear Town

Fear Town Haunted house is a huge outdoor haunted attraction that will shock your socks off.

It is unlike anything you have ever seen or experienced before. Situated deep into the heart of the woods at Seekonk Speedway, Fear Town takes you on a dark journey that winds in and out of the run-down buildings that have stayed hidden for decades.

As you make your way throughout this attraction, monsters will run at you from all angles in order to attempt to make you a permanent resident of the deep, dark woods.

Chambers of Terror in Salem

Chambers of Terror in Salem is a dark and daunting Salem haunted house. However, it isn’t just another haunted house. It is the best.

Prepare to be consumed by darkness and terrified by everything that passes by. Just remember, it is not for the faint of heart. Tickets for children are $12.00 and tickets for adults are $17.00.


After a “spooktacular” day and night exploring Boston attractions, it is important to have somewhere safe and comfortable to rest your head. Luckily, the stunning Copley House has you covered.
