September 22nd, 2022 by

With fall just around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about maximizing the scares this Halloween. For those who like to be truly terrified, haunted houses are a great way to immerse yourself in the best the season has to offer. At Nucar Toyota of Norwood, we appreciate a good scare as much as anyone else and can’t wait to share some of our favorite local hauntings. Read on to learn more about the best haunted houses near Norwood, Massachusetts.

Factory of Terror

Located about 50 minutes from Norwood in the town of Fall River sits a truly twisted attraction. Factory of Terror takes place in a deserted building complete with a chilling (if fictional) story about the murder of 113 former factory workers. Expect blood, guts, blackouts, and plenty of other scares to keep you busy.

This attraction opens in September with special, early-bird pricing. Peruse other available dates through October, with prices ranging from $17 to $25 per person. To enter this experience, you must sign a waiver and be at least 12. Leave the younger kids at home for this scary story.

Fear Town

With locations in both Seekonk (about 50 minutes away) and Rhode Island, Fear Town has built a reputation for horror in New England. In fact, it was named one of New England’s longest haunted houses for its staggering 45-minute run time. Enjoy a series of terrifying attractions, including skeletons, monsters, confined surprises, and plenty of haunted forests.

If you need to take a break in between all your hauntings, you can even enjoy a midway filled with games, food, and entertainment. While there is no set age limit for this terrifying time, they do suggest that some content may be unsuitable for children under 12. The fun starts in late September with tickets ranging from $20 to $54, depending on how many different haunted attractions you can handle.

Fright Kingdom

About an hour away from Norwood sits New England’s largest indoor horror attraction at Fright Kingdom. This Nashua, New Hampshire, spot has four different haunted experiences including a haunted manor, apocalypse zone, creepy farmhouse, and killer clown convention. Opening Oct. 1, general admission tickets will set you back $29 and include admission to all attractions.

If you’re feeling brave, you can even elect for the Fright Kingdom in the Dark event on Nov. 5 and Nov. 6. End out the season with all the horror you love, minus any light except a single source per group. While these twisted fright fiends won’t turn away any children, consider waiting until your kids are at least 12 to step into this kingdom of scares.

Gallows Hill Presents: The Lost Museum

Any horror fan in the greater Boston area has probably heard of Salem, Massachusetts, which sits about 1 hour and 15 minutes away from Norwood. This haunting witch town is filled with scares, but one of the most impressive may be Gallows Hill Presents: The Lost Museum. While you can enjoy plenty of haunted, witch-filled thrills in Gallows Hill proper, the Lost Museum attraction is unique for its underground setting and interactive appeal.

Part haunted house and part escape room, you and your group will want to solve the clues in the terrifying museum before it’s too late. Shows begin at the end of September and run through October. Tickets are $18 for adults, $15 for children 7-13, and free for those under 7. Think your group has what it takes to solve this puzzle?

Chambers of Terror

Not ready to flee from Salem just yet? Check out a whole new type of horror with this fun-sized horror treat. Chambers of Terror is a seven-minute haunted house experience that may lack in hours, but not screams. Created by fright experts, you’ll enjoy movie-quality imaginings of demons, ghosts, monsters, and murderers. The haunted house runs from September through October, with $15 for adult tickets and $10 for children.

If you want to maximize your experience in Salem, though, stay for the Chamber’s famous Fireside Ghost Stories. This intimate event involves all participants sitting in a small, candle-lit room and listening to ghost stories performed live and in person. To really help you get in the spirit, you can enjoy complimentary snacks and beverages common to the colonial days. Tickets cost $35 per person, with only 16 sold per event. Run, don’t walk, to book your spot in this one-of-a-kind attraction.

13th World

With two locations, the closest in nearby Palmer, Massachusetts, 13th World is a horror fan’s delight. Just 30 minutes outside of Norwood, you can easily get to (or escape) this spot’s “Fright Park” haunted trail. Along your walk, you can enjoy a variety of haunted experiences, including a maze-like fright and a truly twisted attraction that visitors go through alone.

Season times run from the end of September until Nov. 5, with a blackout event running on Nov. 4 and Nov. 5. Tickets are $30, with a fast pass option for $50. There are no age restrictions in place, but use your best judgment and consider leaving the little ones at home.

Haunted Overload

Situated on a farm in Lee, New Hampshire, this spot is the furthest from Norwood on this list, with a drive time of about two hours. But your trip will be worth it for the experience at Haunted Overload. This immersive trail haunt features sets, sounds, and costumes that will leave you breathless.

Enjoy three levels of horror, including a day haunt, which allows guests to walk the trail during the day minus any actors. Fright Night Lite provides all the sights and sound effects after dark without any monsters lurking. For the full experience, though, check out the spot’s namesake, the Haunted Overload. Tickets for October range from $11 for the day walk to $31 for the full deal. Age recommendations depend on the attraction you choose.
