About the Show
Pittsburgh's family-owned ScareHouse has become nationally recognized as one of America’s best Halloween Haunted Attractions by ABC news, Travel Channel and iconic horror director Guillermo del Toro. It has also been featured on Good Morning America, Late Night with Seth Meyers, USA TODAY, CBS News, and many other national media outlets.
ScareHouse is located inside a historic and notoriously haunted building in Etna, best known as the Elks Lodge 932 (one of the largest and most active Elks chapters in the country.) Many locals and Elks members, as well as most of our crew members, have experienced multiple encounters with strange sights and sounds over the years.
