8. The Terrortorium Haunted House & Amusements, Oxford, AL

Both haunted house and haunted castle ride are not to be missed at the Terrortorium. Inside you’ll discover a truly terrifying experience from floor to ceiling that looks a little too real for comfort. Every inch of the attraction is brimming with a level of spookiness you just won’t find anywhere else, making it a must-do this Halloween season.

9. Mountain Creek Trail of Fear, Verbena, AL

This haunted hayride is no walk in the woods—once on board, there’s no way to run for your life. If you’d rather make a quick getaway, you can embark on the Trail of Fear on foot, but beware—there’s danger lurking behind every tree and around every turn—and you might not see it coming!

10. The Haunted Lester Hospital, Lester, AL

While many haunted attractions rely on actors and makeup for a scary experience, few have what makes Lester Haunted Hospital a truly horrifying journey: real paranormal activity. The facility served the community as a real functioning hospital for 50 years, and not all who passed through its halls during that time left. Aside from the man-made scary sights inside, you may get a little more than you bargained for if the ghosts decide to come out and play.
