DALLAS, Oct. 13, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- In this era of spectacular movie special effects and videogame realism, it is a feat into itself to create an attraction with an immersive experience – one where visitors eye-witness fright. However, the premiere haunted attraction association, America Haunts, named five mega haunts that have transcended the five-star review and into a legendary realm. The legendary haunts in the United States include Netherworld - Atlanta, operating 25 years; Erebus – Detroit, 22 years; Beast – Kansas City, 31 years; Dent – Cincinnati, celebrating 25 years; and Darkness – St. Louis, 28 years.

Collectively their 130 years of haunting experience, plus the other premiere haunted attractions within America Haunts, offers a consortium of haunt businesses that have the formula for what it takes to excel in the scary world of haunting. These legendary haunts have taken decades to create a fully immersive experience packed with the unexpected and rationally impossible encounters lasting for approximately one hour per experience. Their endurance in the industry speaks to their ingenuity and ability to stay ahead of trends to make the experience as relevant and scary today as generations ago.

Each fearlessly invested in technology from laser triggers to projection mapping, holograms, custom sets and costumes, and much more to convincingly create the realistic, frightful-fantasy environment.
