Have a hankering to visit a haunted house this Halloween season? Here are some ghoulish and ghostly options. An outdoor spooky adventure has been added as well!

Ripley’s Haunted Adventure, 915 Ocean Blvd, Myrtle Beach 843-448-2331
This scary attraction is based on spirits that roam the hallways from the previous business located in that space – a casket company! However, after experiencing some strange phenomenon, the summer of 2008 Ripley’s Haunted Adventure called in paranormal investigators to check things out. The results of the investigation were that there were four earthbound spirits residing at the attraction – including one antagonist spirit. A total of three men and one woman were identified. This is a YouTube video from that investigation: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=saovCslcgPE Open daily with $13.99 admission for adults and $7.99 for children 6-11. Children under 6 are not permitted.

Terror Under the Bridge, Lower River Warehouse, 103 Third Ave, Conway 843-283-9229
Rated one of the best haunted houses in the state, put Terror on your “must do” list. Considered to be actually haunted, this warehouse built in 1890 has even been visited by The Ghost Hunters. The Ghost Hunters didn’t leave empty handed either. Paranormal activity was detected during their visit. Aside from the scary fun, proceeds from the sales go to a good cause! Fostering Hope Inc, a nonprofit organization that provides goods and services to children residing in the foster care system in four counties in Northeastern South Carolina. Support them and get scared out of your wits all at the same time! Admission is $10.
Student and military discount nights ($2 off!) are October 27, 28 and 29.
