Easter and Spring Haunts


It's no surprise that numerous haunted attractions have been expanding beyond the traditional Halloween season. Last month I had just discovered that St. Patrick's Day haunted attractions actually existed. (See here.) Now it's Easter's turn! Like the St. Patty's Day events, I only came across a few twisted themed Easter attractions on my search. It seems this also isn't a common trend either.

While looking for Easter haunts, I also came across a few haunted houses that will be open during the Spring time as well. Though Halloween is over six months away, these haunted attractions and events will surely help you pass the time. Check out my findings down below!


1. Dark Hour's Spring Fever - Plano, Texas
