A team of Pittsburgh artists and builders work year round to create one of America's Scariest Haunted Houses.

Pittsburgh's Ultimate Haunted House
ScareHouse has been ranked as one of “America’s Scariest Halloween Attractions” by Travel Channel and has been featured on Good Morning America, USA TODAY, CBS news, Buzzfeed, Forbes, Geek & Sundry, and many other national media outlets.

Elijah Wood, star of the Lord of the Rings trilogy, raved about ScareHouse on the Seth Meyers show! Check out the video.


The Sunset Lodge:
Looking for a place to escape with that special someone? You should have checked the reviews. Because this hotel is fully occupied by savage serial killers.

Nocturnia 3-D:
Dreams have a way of turning into nightmares. Our twisted carnival of clowns and creatures is longer, weirder, and packed with all new 3-D effects.

A collection of cursed artifacts from the darkest corners of the world. Released a legion of demons from the deepest depths of Hell.

The Basement:
ScareHouse's "The Basement" haunted attraction contains high voltage effects, very low lighting, tight spaces, strong scents, profanity, moments of complete darkness, water, violent scenarios and high impact scares. Not recommended for pregnant women or people with heart conditions or respiratory problems.

Free shuttle service runs continuously from 6:30 PM until 30 minutes after the haunt closes each night the ScareHouse is open. Email Haunt Owner

Review This Haunt
  • Ya it's that good....

    Since my friend and I have been going to haunted houses this one is probably one of the top at our list. We go every year and there is always something different. And we always end up getting scared. This passed year 2013 I went 3 times and it never got old. This year I do want to try to go to the basement. The only reason why it's not getting 5 pumpkins is because of the price. I do understand that they have to make a good bit of profit for them to stay open. But to charge $25 extra for the basement. It's just a little ridiculous in my opinon. But, overall amazing actors and good entertainment. Especially the creepy bunny along with the odd cinderella dacning to What Does The Fox Say lol.

  • Best set up so far!!

    I am an avid haunted house go-er....I travel far and wide to attend haunted houses and I must say that The Scare House has to be in my top 3. Its scary its fun...I don't even mind the 2 hour wait to get in because the actors entertain the crowd while you are waiting. The zombie them was cool last year and I can't wait to see what is in store for us this year!!!

  • The first time I had went to the scarehouse, it was ok. That was about 5-6 years ago. I decided to go again last year and it was a great improvement. I don't scare very easily but halloween is my favorite time of year. I have been to many haunted houses and this one turned out to be one of the better ones so far. I still haven't found one that has made me even the least bit frightened yet. The actors were good and the special effects were good.
