2017 Date& Hours: Probably October 30 and Halloween Night, 6:30 to 10:00
This neighborhood home haunt sets itself above the competition, with an immersive, improvisation approach and set pieces and decor as stunning as expensive any Halloween theme parks. The walk-through is 6 rooms long. Victims enter in small groups to enhance the scare experience; you can take your time, pausing to appreciate the decor (though this may make you more vulnerable to the dangers lurking within). There are jump scares, but Restless Souls Manor offers a “no scare” option: a flashing baton to ward off the spirits as you approach.
