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 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.

Stalked by a Killer escape room:
The clock is ticking, the room is filling with poisonous gas, and you have just one hour to escape with your lives. Armed only with your wits, you and your friends must solve a series of fiendish puzzles from the mind of a deranged maniac. It’s is your chance to become the star of your very own horror movie! “Stalked by a Killer” is recommended for ages 12 and older, and guests under the age of 16 will require adult supervision.
Some locations may have last minute updates due to changing circumstances. Please visit the attraction's website and/or social media before going to double-check that they are open.

  • Email Verified Surpasses All Expectations

    I expected something a little old, a little long-in-the-tooth, maybe a little too corporate or careful. But Scarehouse absolutely DELIVERS in every way. Loved it!

  • Email Verified Had Fun at Freaky Frightening Rooms

    Went last night with my girlfriend and both of us had a great time. Last year, it was the Basement that we really enjoyed it. But this year, they exceeded our expectations with “Infernal”! The queue was long as usual, but they did a nice job in managing the crowd. Loved the aesthetically designed setups and decorations of the surrounding as it triggered a sense of fear among us. The overall theme was super cool and encountering a bunch of cursed artifacts from the darkest corners of the room was freaky frightening. The maze wasn’t so confusing and special effects were used in right proportion. Impressed by the intermittent loud noises, chaos in the room, hanging bodies, creepy creatures, props, costumes and super friendly staffs. Astounded by the mirror room. It was good and we were screaming, yelling and running from one extreme to other. Overall, an awesome haunt to experience at an economical admission fee. Purchase tickets online for discounts!!

  • 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.
