Haunted House Ideas to Provide Thrill and Excitement

Are you seeking haunted house ideas to provide some fun and thrill?

When you're looking for haunted house inspiration, the key is to be scary, without being too over the top. Some of the best haunted houses have those "little extras" that don't seem like much, but are really frightening.

So, what are some of the best ideas out there for the ultimate scare factor, and how do you know which ideas will be good for your haunted house?

Your first step: do some research

When you're planning a haunted house and looking for great haunted house ideas, you're probably going to want to get a good head start on this project. Start gathering your ideas and making your plans around June or July so that you will be able to gather all of the materials you need and have the most creative haunted house possible.

  • Choose your location early and, if you will need permits, start planning to get them. It's a good idea to map out your haunted house ideas if you'll be working in a place that isn't your home. If you'll be selling tickets to your haunted house, you're going to need to make sure that you have all of the proper insurance and necessary paperwork in place before you get started.

  • If you're going to be making a haunted house in your home, say for a Halloween party, you're going to want to know which rooms to allow people to enter and which rooms to leave alone.

  • Start choosing themes and consider who the bulk of your visitors will be. In other words, will your haunted house ideas be geared toward children who scare easily, or will you be planning for adults who love haunted houses?

Your second step: develop themes for each room and develop a plan

Once you've chosen your location for your haunted house, you will want to put together a plan. Decide what kind of space you'll be working with and if you want to make it a type of maze, or if you'll have your guests moving from room to room.

  • If you're only working with one very large space, consider haunted house ideas that create a maze. This way, you'll be able to create little "rooms" in your maze that offer the appropriate thrills.

  • If you're working with individual rooms, you can choose themes for each of these rooms to provide an even greater scare factor.

Once you've chosen your layout for your haunted house, you can decide how scary you want to be and how much space you want to use on each "scare room." If you're working with children, or have limited resources, it might be easier to incorporate more "dummies," but if you have the people and financial resources, live actors can be a great addition to your haunted house.

Take some tips from the pros

For some of the best haunted house ideas, you might want to start looking online for some tips from the professionals. By visiting some websites of the most popular haunted houses in the country and even the world, you'll be able to see what's really scary and how it's done. This will help you to make your haunted house the best that it can be.

Just remember that your haunted house ideas should always be age appropriate and safe. If you'll be using props such as chainsaws and knives, they should be safe and, in some cases, fake. Remember that some people should not be around strobe lights, so if you're using them, make sure to warn your guests.

In the end, when you take the time to gather some really great haunted house ideas, you'll find that your haunted house can be a success, no matter how large or small.

Have a thrilling good time!
