Biggest Haunted House
The biggest haunted house in the world is not where you may think.
The word "haunted house" really fascinates you and scares
you because it's a place wherein you will have lots of fun. The
world's scariest haunted house should keep the visitor interested
by displaying some unique and wild features that are not seen
in any other haunted houses.
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
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!
