Haunted Attractions:
Myrtle Beach is home to a number of spooky attractions perfect for the Halloween season. Here are three must-see destinations to get your heart racing and your adrenaline pumping!

Ripley’s Haunted Adventure
913 N Ocean Blvd, Myrtle Beach
Located in the heart of Myrtle Beach’s downtown district, Ripley’s Haunted Adventure is not for the faint of heart. This spine-tingling, multi-million dollar attraction was designed to resemble a spooky mansion with broken shutters and haunting noises, but the real scares take place inside. Rated the #1 haunted house in Myrtle Beach, The Haunted Adventure begins with an elevator ride to the top floor of the three-story building. From there, visitors encounter live actors and animatronic characters on their way through the pitch-dark halls and dimly lit rooms, with real and make-believe monsters around every corner. Feel free to scream as loudly as you want!

Outbreak – Dread the Undead

1808 21st Ave. N., Myrtle Beach

What catastrophe occurred in this ransacked semblance of a lab? You’re on cleanup and disposal detail and you’ve been warned. If you make your way through the zombie infested labs, the morgue, and the rotting basement, you might be able to rid the world of Alpha Strain. But, then again, you might not! Outbreak – Dread the Undead is located inside the Hollywood Wax Museum, across the street from Broadway at the Beach, and is perfect for zombie fans.

Nightmare Haunted House
1001 N. Ocean Boulevard, Myrtle Beach
So you don’t believe in ghastly ghouls and goblins, demented butchers and creepy clowns? You will, after you visit the darkest of Myrtle Beach’s haunted attractions. Located across the street from the SkyWheel, Nightmare Haunted House has been scaring visitors to death since 1989, with over 3,000 square feet of terror. Enter if you dare!
