Costumes. Candy. Jack o’ lanterns. Haunted attractions.

Halloween is a day to dress up as whatever you want, to eat candy until you feel like you are going to die, to get pumpkin guts all over your hands and to scream like a baby.

When October rolls around, places start to open up their haunted attractions. They can range anywhere from a house, an experience, trails and forests, hayrides, theme parks, mazes, hell houses, trains and rides, home and yard haunts, midnight shows and ghost runs. There are nearly 2,000 haunted attractions in the U.S..

Oahu has a few haunted attractions like The Haunted Plantation, Nightmares Live at the Dole Cannery, Scare Hawaii and even the Aloha Stadium.

When it comes to The Haunted Plantation many people say it is the scariest haunted house in Hawaii. Students that have been to the plantation said that on a scale of 1 to 10 it is a 10. Some even went over the scale.
