One such place which is also the second biggest haunted house of the world lies in Pontiac, Michigan and is named as the Erebus Haunted House. This haunted house spreads over 4 floors of a building and is one of the best with scary monsters, crushing walls and bottomless pits.

The word Erebus means the son of chaos and brother of night in Greek mythology and in usual terms it signifies darkness. The name of the place says it all as it is really scary especially for women and children (and a few men, like me, too). The Erebus is in the Guinness Book of World Records as the second largest walk-through haunted house.

The Erebus haunted house is 2,189 feet from its entrance to its exit. The biggest reason as to why this haunted house is one of the scariest because most of the props of monsters are built in house by the Erebus association which gives the visitors a unique experience, on they have never witnessed before.

With most number of haunts per mile the house has mostly moving monsters that interact with the visitors and with sparkling light and sound effects these create a haunting effect. The guests are sent in batches because various events are to be shown to them. For example in the beginning you can witness an aerial attack from a 12 feet high monster that will scare you.

So, now let's move on to the honor of the biggest haunted house in the world. In 2009, the Cutting Edge Haunted House in Fort Worth, Texas overtook Erebus according to the Guinness Book of World Records for being the largest walk-through haunted house in the world. The Cutting Edge is 2,261 ft from beginning to end.

In the 1920's the Cutting Edge was a meat packing warehouse, which adds to the mythology of death and dismemberment of this place. It's fairly important for a haunted house to make certain changes from time to time so that it maintains its uniqueness and the Cutting Edge has managed to do this. In addition, another important aspect is the security of the visitors and this haunted house has taken several preventive measures so that the visitors do not get hurt.

Thus a visit to the biggest haunted house of the world will definitely be terrifying but at the same time really enjoyable and an experience of a lifetime, especially around the hallowed night of Halloween. The owners of the Cutting Edge Haunted House have made sure that each of the visitors has a good time with various haunted events.

If you're looking for the word's biggest haunted house for real, then in the U. S. you may want to check out the Winchester Mystery House in San Jose, California. And, another favorite in the voting worldwide would be the Bran Castle in Romania (made legendary as Dracula's Castle in Transylvania).

But, don't get too spooked because if you are a believer in the afterlife, then the biggest haunted house in the world may not be a Halloween destination or a mystery house or something half a world away. It may just be the next home you actually live in or visit in the near future. Muuuuaaaahhhhhaaaahhhhaaaa!
