2018 Review Season Recap & Awards!


Well folks, it is with much sadness that we have to say our 2018 review season has officially come to a close! 2018 was by far our most successful season yet! We visited a total of 26 haunted attractions and wrote a total of 27 reviews (We visited Pennhurst Asylum twice; once for their typical experience and another for their blackout event). We traveled thousands of miles and reviewed haunts all across Pennsylvania, Maryland and New Jersey! The biggest takeaway from visiting this many haunts is simply that each and every haunt offers their own unique experience! Yes some haunts are “better” than others or more “scary” than others… but each haunt did not fail in providing their own spooky fun experience! CONGRATULATIONS and THANK YOU to ALL 26 HAUNTED ATTRACTIONS on a successful haunt season; our squad appreciates all that you do for the industry and we thank you for your hospitality! To recap our 2018 haunt season we’ve provided a complete list of each haunt reviewed and their final rating. All 27 reviews have been posted to our website (www.frightreviewsquad.com). NEW FOR 2018 is our first ever HAUNT AWARDS! We have SEVEN different award categories and will be honoring the TOP 3 FINISHERS and the 4th place finisher as HONORABLE MENTION! Take a peak and see if any of your favorite haunted attractions made our awards list!
