Five haunted houses across America packed with fun and fright.

 

Erebus:

Pontiac, Mich.

Held in a retired, four-story parking garage, Erebus is one of the biggest haunted houses in the world. Participants travel through time with a mad scientist, experiencing horrific scenes through history. The attraction interacts with the audience through actors, props and animatronics, creating illusions like being eaten by a dragon and a hall of mirrors that pushes patrons into a bottomless pit.

 

Terror Behind The Walls:

Eastern State Penitentiary, Philadelphia, Pa.

This historic prison is creepy enough during their day tours, but every October things get truly frightening when it become an interactive haunted house. There are six main attractions, ranging from the medical-themed Infirmary to the Saw-like Machine Shop. You can choose whether you want to observe or take part in the interactive experience, but either way this is not for the faint of heart.

 

Dark Harbor:

RMS Queen Mary, Long Beach, Calif.

Taking place on the ocean liner, the Queen Mary, Dark Harbor is an extravagant Halloween party complete with mazes, monsters, voodoo and dancing. This historic site is also rumored to be haunted. After the Queen Mary was permanently moored in Southern California, numerous people have made reports of ghosts, ranging from crewmen who have passed away to the sounds of the children playing in the nursery to a mysterious Lady in White that roams the decks.

 

Cutting Edge:

Fort Worth, Texas

In 2009, Cutting Edge overtook Erebus as the world’s biggest haunted attraction, and it is also the longest walk-through attraction at 55 minutes. Considered to be one of the best in America, Cutting Edge utilizes its location as an abandoned meat-packing plant. The equipment is still in use, only they feature it as a human processing area, complete with mannequins being butchered on the conveyor belts.

 

Netherworld:

Atlanta, Ga.

Founded by costume designers and creature fabricators in the film industry, Netherworld features a variety of attractions that are as elaborate as they are scary. The producers eschew traditional Hollywood themes and instead develop a unique storyline that involves actors, stunt performers, special effects and immersive stage sets.

Leak-Proof Silicone Bottles for Liquids

It doesn’t matter which bottles you use for transporting liquids when you travel, just so long as they meet Transportation Security Administration regulations, right? Wrong. Not all travel-sized liquid containers are the same. For example, cheap plastic bottles may explode in flight, leaving you with stained and damaged clothes and a mess to clean up. Rather than scrimping on below-par bottles for your carry-on liquids, invest a bit of extra money in bottles you’ll actually look forward to using and that won’t require laborious attempts at cleaning out every last drop of your product.
