Ghouls Rush In - North Carolina's Haunted House Attractions








"Ghouls Rush In, where Wise Men never Go":  Where is the hotbed for insane people, walking   zombies, and mutilated hairdos?   The State Fair?  No, it's the haunted houses across North Carolina.  Our state is a haven for every type of Halloween attraction including haunted hayrides, haunted houses, ghost tours, and paranormal ghost hunting.  With more than 45 major haunted houses, it is hard to choose so we are focusing on the some of the best and scariest ones that have garnered national rankings.  "So open up your heart and let ... those Ghouls Rush In!"

Woods of Terror on Church Street: Don't Fear the Darkness - Fear the Terror that Lies Within. Woods of Terror (Greensboro) is not your ordinary, scream-filled haunted attraction. Selected as One of America's Best Haunts, this interactive Halloween event creates an atmosphere of pure horror, making any Alfred Hitchcock movie seem tame by comparison. Twenty acres of rural woodlands is transformed into one of the most intense and terrifying haunted trails in the Southeast. This year's new attractions include the "Well of Lost Souls, graveyard, and virus (complete with Bio-Hazard area), "Blackbeard's Revenge" haunted pirate ship, "3D Extreme" (the only 3D attraction of it's kind in NC), and the new and improved "Claustrophobia".  Location: 5601 N Church Street, Greensboro; Website, Photos


Camp Fear- Hiddentite: The Fear is Here! Voted scariest haunted attraction in NC by visitors. Come meet with poor, mutilated and insane Daniel and learn his story first hand. If you make it through you will be treated to part 2 of Camp Fear.  Get lost in the rock maze with the help of their half dead maze guides. Spin in circles in a spinning vortex. Scream with the clowns in this year's Clown Chaos attraction, or play with the dolls in their Living Dead Dollhouse. Finally, take a deep breath and try to get through Claustrophobia "What are you afraid of?" this is our collection of fears and movie Icons. Still here? COME FACE YOUR FEARS!  Location: 601 Princess Lane, Hiddenite, NC;  Website


Fear Farm - Clayton: Clayton Fear Farm is the only haunted house theme park in the Triangle area of North Carolina featuring 8 haunted attractions that updated yearly with new ones each year such as the new Seymour's Dreams - the ONLY 3D haunted house in the Triangle North Carolina area.  Check out the dizzying Black Hole and the haunted hayride.  Location: 1620 Loop Road Clayton; Website, Video 



Mountain of Terror Haunted Attraction - Asheboro:  This fear factory is a multitude of scares that will tempt and taunt your every sense of well being. The Maze of Mayhem will take you through 6000 square feet of sheer terror.  Then take the plunge as the Terror Slide races you down an eighty foot dark, claustrophobic tunnel for a heart pumping adrenaline rush of a good time. The Terror Slide is the only one in the Southeast. Check out the Miner's Matinee, Jungle of Misery, The Miner's Lodge Haunted House, Tombs of the Unknown, House of Divided Souls, Mile Haunted Trail and 300 Feet of Underground Tunnels. Evil lurks around every corner ... and even the laughs may send chills up your spine.  Location: 4527 Linda Lane, Asheboro; Website, Video

The Beltline Buzz items are selected by our editors.  No one can pay to be featured on The Beltline Buzz..  That's what advertising is for, and it's always labeled as such.  Selling ourselves (literally) would destroy the legitimacy, integrity, and fun of  The Beltline Buzz.  Plus, we'd never earn your trust that way.  So we'll never make a dime off your meal at a restaurant nor a penny from the sale of the latest accessory we told you about.


That said, on occasion, we will send out "Dedicated" e-mails on behalf of sponsors.  You'll recognize them from the subject line: "The Beltline Buzz Dedicated E-mail."  Yes, these are paid for.  And, no, we would never sell our subscriber list to anyone.  Not for any amount of money. 


We hope that you continue to enjoy your Beltline Buzz.  We look forward to delivering it.
