Lost Souls Alley – Kraków, Poland

Jumping across the pond, the next spooky spot on our list is Lost Souls Alley. Europe has elevated the haunted house game with its interactive, painful, terrifying attractions. In Kraków’s city center an old building that was rumored to be haunted with vengeful ghosts has been converted into 10 rooms for you to work your way through. Lost Souls Alley has different levels of intensities to choose from and boasts that only 20% of their customers choose the more extreme version, and of those who chose it not a single person has made it all the way through…

Hotel Psycho – Vienna, Austria

Sticking to Europe, next we have Hotel Psycho. This is the haunted house for those who are looking for the most extreme experience. This is not for the faint of heart, with even their least scary “green” level you can expect to be terrorized both mentally and physically. No matter the level of scare you choose you can expect to come out with some bruises and scratches that you can proudly post pictures of to your social media. Located within the Prater amusement park, you can go calm your nerves afterward with live entertainment, or if you want to keep the adrenaline rushing you can ride one of their roller coasters.

Saikyo Senritsu Meikyu – Fujiyoshida, Japan

Last on our lists is the world’s most visited haunted house, Saikyo Senritsu Meikyu, which translates to “Shivering Labyrinth”. In the heart of the amusement park Fuji-Q Highland, this haunted house sees more than 1000 visitors a day who are brave enough to explore this 50-minute maze. Inspired by a local hospital that was rumored to steal organs during surgeries, legend says that the ghosts of the hospital now roam the maze of Saikyo Senritsu Meikyu. Guests recall hearing a female screaming but the attraction has no female actors, leading many to question where the screams are really coming from…
