Beginning of Halloween? Haunted House In WNY Teases A Summer Opening

The fall festivities are still four months away, but that doesn’t mean people aren’t already looking forward to it.

You have already heard the saying – “elite season”, in reference to the fall. Fall foliage, pumpkins, pumpkin spice, apple cider, horror movies, and whatever makes you crave that crisp fall air.

Even though we haven’t even hit daylight saving time yet, it looks like you can scare a local haunted attraction much earlier than usual this year.

According to their Facebook page, The Haunted Forests has announced that they could very well open on August 1 for a special “Halloween come early” attraction.

The Haunted Forests is located on Beebe Road in Newfane and recently debuted in Western New York as a new haunted attraction.

They have a haunted forest, town, and wagon rides to scare the locals.

The haunted house community took a big hit in 2021, as House of Horrors and Haunted Catacombs closed after years of operating in the Buffalo area.

Frightworld should be back in full force this fall, as they returned last year, having pulled 2020 due to the pandemic.

I’m a fan of watching horror movies all year round and people who love haunted houses are usually die-hard fans, so this is a great idea; open in summer, even briefly.

House of Horrors and Haunted Catacombs had a week-long farewell last summer, when they announced that 2021 would be everything to them.

Maybe a summer scare will be more normal in years to come.
