Looking to get the bejeezus scared out of you in the Boston area this year?
Here are a few of our picks for some of the best haunted attractions in Southern New England.
The woods around Nashoba Valley Ski Area have become frighteningly haunted with over a half-dozen attractions. From Castle Morbid and the Nightmare Mansion to the Keeper’s Crypt and the Horrorwood Chamber of Chills, there’s enough walk-through action to scare even the most grizzled Halloween thrill-seeker. Survive zombie attacks on the Haunted Hayride, or stop by the Jack O’Lantern Jamboree, if you’re a little more faint-hearted.
