Five of the Scariest Halloween Attractions in Connecticut
If you love to be scared to death, scream loudly, hear the sounds of a chainsaw, or hear something growling in your ear, you've come to the right place.
Before I roll out the scariest Halloween attractions in Connecticut, a bloody congratulations to the Haunted Graveyard at Lake Compounce in Bristol for being named the #7 most scariest theme park in the United States. The #1 slot went to Fright Fest Six Flags Magic Mountain in Valencia, California. If you love blood curdling scary on Halloween, the following are a list of five of the scariest Halloween attractions in Connecticut.
I had no choice but to make the Haunted Graveyard in Bristol at Lake Compounce the #1 theme park because it was named the seventh best scariest theme park in the entire country by readers of USA Today. Check this out from their website:
At dusk, we will take you on a 1 mile terrifying journey through darkly glittering catacombs to an eerie graveyard, to a vampire's haunt, to a witch's lair, and then onto a misty lake and an ancient temple.
You can purchase your tickets on their website at hauntedgraveyard.com. My advice, take an extra pair of underwear along just in case.
Legends of Fear is located at 2 Saw Mill City Road in Shelton. All you have to do is board their wagon which travels deep into their forests and fields for 30 minutes of scream filled terror.
