The Haunted Attraction Association (HAA), the only official association in the haunt industry, has certified 31 haunts across the country as official “Top Haunted Attractions.” To be certified, attractions must be a member of HAA and meet a list of 10 criteria relating back to the mission of HAA – to protect customers, promote haunted attractions, and educate industry professionals.
“The safety of our guests is the number one priority,” said HAA President Brett Hays. “The certification is a symbol of excellence that honors those attractions that are making strides above and beyond to focus on the safety and education of their employees, while developing a world-class haunting experience for guests.”
