The spookiest season is finally upon us, so here are nine top-rated haunted houses to visit in Maryland this year.
As Halloween slowly approaches, several locations around Maryland have set up haunted houses that'll test your limits, scare you to pieces, and most certainly leave you crying on the floor (like the sissy that you are!). Each of these haunted houses has been given great reviews. Do you think you have what it takes to make it through one (or all) of these?
1. Station 7 Terror Trail | 2380 Davidsonville Road, Gambrills, Maryland 21504 | Now until November 2
This unique haunted house experience caters to everyone in the family, not just the adults and teenagers. It will provide a terrifying and unpredictable walk through the "Terror Trail" that is expected to make you run away screaming. If you want to include your little ones, they offer families the option of wandering through the "Boo Haunt Loop," which features reduced scares. A portion of the proceeds will go to the Arundel Volunteer Fire Department. Tickets are $25 each for the Terror Trail and $8 each for the Boo Haunt Loop.

5. CornStalker's Trail Of Terror | 11765 St. Linus Drive, Waldorf, Maryland 20602 | Now until November 1
Walk (or run) your way through the CornStalker's two attractions, Trail of Terror and The Asylum (new for 2019), as cast members attempt to make you one of their own. The patients in The Asylum are hungry for attention and want to make new friends. Do you think you can escape their grasp? The haunted attraction was purposefully placed in this location because of the haunting story behind it. Mr. Graves used to run a farm here, and legend says he gruesomely murdered everyone who visited the location. In order to avoid paying the price for his actions, he committed suicide by burning the house down around him. His cries of terror could supposedly be heard from the outside. Tickets are $7-$19 each—Get them here!
