Shadows of a thousand years rise again unseen, Voices whisper in the trees, “Tonight is Halloween!” ~ Dexter Kozen.


Everyone loves the thrill and adrenaline rush they get when they attend a Haunted House, not to mention the suspense of ‘what will happen next’. The halloween industry is one of the fastest growing industries in America, and has profited over 11 billion dollars within the last 10 years, from its initial 1 billion dollars. With the high interest in halloween decor, many Americans have started to partake in the haunted house interest, and open their own haunted houses. Many Michigan members have hopped on this trend by opening their own haunted houses, making Michigan home to one of the biggest haunted houses in America. The Spectrum staff has gathered together the Top 10 Haunted Houses located throughout Michigan.
