From Haunted Houses to Zombies: The Most Frightening Scary Horror Games
Do you enjoy the adrenaline rush of being scared out of your wits? Are you a fan of horror movies and looking for a new way to experience fear? Look no further. In this article, we will explore some of the most terrifying scary horror games that will leave you trembling with fear. From haunted houses to zombies, these games will push your limits and keep you on the edge of your seat.
Haunted Houses: A Classic Thrill
If you’re a fan of haunted houses, then horror games that feature eerie mansions or abandoned buildings are sure to provide an exhilarating experience. One such game that comes to mind is “Resident Evil 7: Biohazard.” Set in a dilapidated plantation house in rural Louisiana, this game combines atmospheric horror with intense gameplay. As you navigate through dark corridors and solve puzzles, you’ll encounter grotesque creatures and terrifying jump scares that will keep your heart pounding.
Another notable haunted house game is “Amnesia: The Dark Descent.” In this first-person survival horror game, players find themselves trapped inside an ancient castle with no memory of how they got there. With limited resources and a lurking presence that feeds on fear, this game is guaranteed to make even the bravest players feel vulnerable and terrified.
Zombies: A Never-Ending Nightmare
Zombies have been a staple in horror culture for decades, and scary horror games featuring these undead creatures are always popular among thrill-seekers. One standout title in this genre is “The Last of Us.” Set in a post-apocalyptic world overrun by infected humans turned into zombies, this action-adventure game blends intense combat with an emotionally gripping storyline. The realistic graphics and immersive gameplay make every encounter with the infected a heart-pounding experience.
For those seeking a more intense zombie experience, “Resident Evil 2” is a must-play. This remake of the classic survival horror game takes players back to Raccoon City, where a zombie outbreak has turned the population into flesh-eating monsters. With its atmospheric setting and relentless undead enemies, this game will keep you on your toes as you fight for survival.
Psychological Horror: A Mind-Bending Challenge
If you prefer horror games that mess with your mind, then psychological horror games are perfect for you. “Silent Hill 2” is often regarded as one of the best examples of this subgenre. As players control James Sunderland through the foggy town of Silent Hill, they unravel a deeply disturbing story filled with symbolism and psychological torment. The game’s haunting atmosphere and psychological twists will leave you questioning reality long after you’ve put down the controller.
Another mind-bending horror experience is “Layers of Fear.” In this first-person exploration game, players step into the shoes of a disturbed painter as they navigate through a constantly changing mansion. Delving into themes of madness and obsession, this game uses clever storytelling and visual trickery to create an unsettling experience that will keep you guessing until the very end.
Survival Horror: Fight or Flight
For those who enjoy intense gameplay and heart-pounding action, survival horror games provide an adrenaline-fueled experience like no other. “Outlast” is a prime example of this genre. Armed only with a camcorder, players must navigate through an abandoned psychiatric hospital filled with deranged inmates. With no means to defend yourself other than hiding or running away, every encounter becomes a tense battle for survival.
Another standout survival horror game is “Alien: Isolation.” Set fifteen years after the events of Ridley Scott’s iconic film “Alien,” players assume the role of Ellen Ripley’s daughter as she tries to survive aboard a space station infested by one relentless xenomorph. The game’s AI-driven alien enemy constantly adapts to the player’s actions, making every encounter a nerve-wracking game of cat-and-mouse.
In conclusion, if you’re a fan of being scared senseless, these scary horror games will provide an unforgettable experience. Whether you prefer haunted houses, zombies, psychological torment, or survival challenges, there is a game out there that will cater to your darkest fears. So grab your controller and prepare for a night of terror as you dive into these spine-chilling virtual worlds.

Your home holds many memories, and not all of them may be yours. Or you may question whether your house could be haunted or contain hidden treasure. If you’re wondering about checking the history of your house, get ready to learn how to uncover your home’s past.
Taxpayer Assessor Online Databases
Search online for your town’s taxpayer information. Once there, if your town offers an online database including every property, you might find out a lot about your home.
One tax assessor company, Vision Government Solutions, maintains online databases for states on the East Coast. Click on the state and you’ll see a list of your state’s towns. Some of the towns have accessible databases, and others don’t. Follow prompts to take you to your property’s information, including previous owners.

Dig Up Land Records and Historical Maps
If you’re a genealogy enthusiast, you know the value of historical maps and land records. If you’re new to this type of search, start at the National Archives (archives.gov) to initiate a search into your property. You’ll find land transactions and even what the average cost was to build your house.
You can search for, download and enlarge historical maps of your town or neighborhood. Or go to your town hall and local library for copies.

MOST HAUNTED PLACES IN WEST VIRGINIA
The Mountain State boasts many paranormal anomalies, from horrific prisons and asylums to haunted hotels and amusement parks. Some of the spine-tingling history is not for the faint of heart. Any one of these places will leave you sleeping with the lights on at night. For a real fright this fall, head to some of the spooky places below.
Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum
Located in Weston, the Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum was a sanctuary for the mentally-ill up until 1994. This National Historic Landmark was once an important military post in the Civil War. It was originally built to hold about 250 patients, but during its peak it held 2,400 patients in poor conditions. Ghost experts have flocked here to experience the paranormal for themselves. They’ve heard blood-curdling screams and seen mysterious shadowy figures. Many say the souls of the insane have never left the halls they once called home. Those brave enough can even choose to spend the night in the asylum.
The Wells Inn
Interested in staying the night at a haunted hotel? The Wells Inn is sure to give you a fright. The grandson of the founder of Sistersville, Ephraim Wells, built the hotel to cater to oil barons and upper class travelers in the late 1800’s. Many say that Mr. Wells never left his beloved hotel. A ghost walks the halls turning on lights, slamming doors and moving objects . The sound of writing can be heard from Mr. Wells old office.
Lake Shawnee Amusement Park
This abandoned amusement park will send a chill down your spine. When it opened in the 1920s, no one knew about its bloody past. The site housed a terrible skirmish between Mitchell Clay and the local Shawnee Indian tribe, after three of Clay’s children were brutally murdered by the tribe. Clay sought revenge and killed several of the Native Americans. After an entrepreneur stumbled upon the land and turned it into Lake Shawnee Amusement Park , things began to go wrong. A young girl died on the swings and a little boy is said to have drowned in the pond. Native American chants can be heard on some nights throughout the park. This attraction in Mercer County is open for haunted tours so you can explore the supernatural yourself.
A Haunting in Harpers Ferry
Harpers Ferry , one of the oldest towns in the state, is famous for its war time history. So it’s no surprise this town has Civil War soldiers performing marching drills and the ghost of John Brown walking the streets at night. Another ghost story is that of “Screaming Jenny,” a woman who caught fire and ran into an oncoming train. On the anniversary of her death, folks say they can see a ball of fire on the tracks that disappears when a train strikes her. Ghost Tours of Harpers Ferry will take you on an evening stroll through the town’s spookiest sites.
On one fall night in 1952, a UFO fell from the sky and landed here in West Virginia. What happened next has been highly contradicted. A group of local children and neighbors went to where the UFO fell and found a mysterious being, with shiny eyes and a round red face, cloaked in a green drape-like material. The later-dubbed Flatwoods Monster hissed at the group and disappeared. The witnesses also reported a pungent smell that made them nauseous. The following day when investigators inspected the site, they found skid marks and an odd, gummy deposit, but no strange smell. Regardless of what had happened, today you can travel Braxton County in search of the Flatwoods Monster chairs that have been installed.
West Virginia Penitentiary
Widely regarded as one of the most haunted prisons in the United States, the West Virginia Penitentiary has seen several riots, fires and over 100 executions . The Gothic-style prison was built in 1876 from locally quarried hand-cut sandstone. The prisons’ hauntings date back to the 1930s when guards saw inmates roaming freely. However, when they sounded the alarms and searched the area, no one was ever found. If you have the courage to take a tour, you’ll be sure to see the “Shadow Man,” a dark silhouette that haunts the grounds . You might even hear whispering or arguing coming from the basement
Hidden in the hills of West Virginia lies a place that defies gravity. No one can say for certain what goes on at Mystery Hole . Folks have said that balls roll uphill. Others say that simply being there has cured their ailments. One thing’s certain – you have to experience this oddity for yourself.
Mysteries in Morgantown
Home of West Virginia University , Morgantown is known for more than their school spirit. Paranormal spirits haunt the hallowed grounds of this university. Long before the school existed, Elizabeth Moore was the principal of the Woodburn Female Seminary, a women’s education academy. After she passed, many still felt her presence on campus. Today, students have seen Ms. Moore hovering over the building that WVU named for her, E. Moore Hall. Just across the way at the Mountainlair, people have reported seeing a little girl in a yellow dress dancing through the student union. Sally, this spirit died of typhoid fever and was originally buried where Stewart Hall now stands. The bodies were moved to a different cemetery but some believe Sally never left.
North Bend Rail Trail
During the day, the North Bend Rail Trail in Parkersburg is a great place to hike, bike and horseback ride, but once night falls you might want to bring a lantern and a friend if you’re going exploring. Part of the trail around Tunnel No. 19 is known to be haunted by the spirit of a young woman. It’s not clear who she is, but many have seen a young woman in a flowing white dress in the area. Others have even found bones in an abandoned house near the tunnel. Be advised – if you venture into the tunnel, bring a flashlight. It’s over 1,300 feet long and even on the sunniest of days, you’ll be swallowed up in the darkness of Tunnel No. 19.
The Greenbrier Ghost
Arguably the most famous entity in the state is that of Zona Heaster Shue. Zona was a young, married and pregnant woman when she was found dead one January night in 1897 in Greenbrier County . The local newspaper said she had died in childbirth and was laid to rest a few days later. But Zona could not rest because she hadn’t died of natural causes. According to a local legend, Zona’s spirit visited her mother and told her how her abusive husband had murdered her. Zona’s mother visited the town’s prosecutor and demanded that her daughter’s body be exhumed. The autopsy revealed that Zona’s neck had been broken and her husband was ultimately found guilty. Today, a plaque commemorates the famous ghost that helped convict a murderer.

Haunted Majestic is located at Majestic Landing just north of Robert Newlon Airport at the end of Kyle Lane, off WV Route 2 five miles north of Huntington, WV. From Interstate 64, take Exit 18 and follow WV Route 193 3 1/2 miles to the intersection of WV Route 2. Turn left onto WV Route 2 and go one block to Kyle Lane. Turn right onto Kyle Lane and follow 1/4 mile across the railroad tracks to Robert Newlon Airport. Parking is available in the field to the right as you enter the airport property. Total drive from I-64 Exit 18 is four miles.
Parking for the Haunted Majestic haunted attraction is $5 per car and is located at the east end of Robert Newlon Airport. After entering the airport property a parking attendant will direct cars to a large field through the gate to the right where sufficient parking will be available. From the parking field, the main gate of Majestic Landing is a mere 100 foot walk. Look for the large fence, gates, and burning torches at the entrance.
Our volunteers choose a charity that their labors will benefit and Haunted Majestic will donate 10 cents for each ticket sold to the charity each volunteer chooses. It doesn’t sound like much, but if you and 9 friends volunteer for a night and 500 people tour Haunted Majestic that night then your chosen charity would receive 10 cents X 10 volunteers X 500 tickets which would total $500. The more you volunteer and the more friends you get to volunteer with you then the more your chosen charity can receive. Yes, you can be your own chosen charity if you would rather receive the money into your own pocket, but remember, if you make more than $600 during the course of the event we have to report your noble service to the IRS via a Form 1099!
We ask that volunteers commit to at least three evenings of volunteering so that the haunt has continuity and we aren’t constantly training and orienting new volunteers. Are you part of a church youth group or charitable organization? Haunted Majestic would be a great way to earn some funds for your group while having a hauntingly good time!
We need actors, guides, scene builders, audio and lighting technicians, cleanup personnel, makeup artists, ticket managers, photographers, videographers, and more. If you feel like you have a talent we can use please shoot us an email .
Vendor spaces are limited to a 10-foot by 10-foot area and electrical hookup is provided on a first booked, first served basis. The cost to vend is $25 per night and vending locations are assigned by the Haunted Majestic staff based on availability of space in and around the pavilion area.

Frequently Asked Questions
Is the haunted majestic attraction suitable for all ages.
While Haunted Majestic promotes itself as a “family-themed haunted attraction” we leave that decision to the parent or guardian. Our haunt is not designed to be overly gory or extremely scary as our focus is more on providing families with a hauntingly fun atmosphere.
Is the Haunted Majestic event A.D.A. compliant?
Unfortunately, no. The haunt is located on two floating barges moored on the Ohio River. The haunt takes participants on a walk through two levels of these barges and several staircases must be traversed up and down during the tour. We will do all we can to accommodate physically challenged individuals and will assist as much as possible to ensure every customer has a scary encounter but the tour is not accessible by wheelchair or recommended for those with severe disabilities.
How does the tour work?
Haunted Majestic is a self-toured haunt with visitors being sent through the haunt in groups of 12 or smaller. The trail to, through and from the haunt is clearly marked and there are trail guides positioned along the course to keep groups on course and grouped together. Stay with your group or face being left behind! Each group is provided with a pre-tour instruction session prior to entering the haunt and tours are sent every five minutes from the ticketing area.
Is someone going to touch me during the tour?
No. The Haunted Majestic attraction is filled with ghosts, goblins, zombies and other monsters which will scare you using loud noises, lighting and other techniques and special effects, but none of the actors will touch you and you are asked not to touch them during the tour.
How long does the tour last?
The self-guided tour will take approximately 20-30 minutes to complete and visitors will return to the point where the haunt started at the conclusion of their tour.
Is Haunted Majestic merchandise available for sale?
Yes. Haunted Majestic has many items in its museum and gift shop located on the first deck of the historic sternwheeler Blennerhassett. Items include t-shirts, hats, mugs, bracelets, pens, decals, and other items.
What forms of payment are accepted?
Haunted Majestic accepts cash, VISA, Mastercard, American Express, and Discover at the ticket booth and gift shop.
Can visitors take photos or video during the tour?
Filming or photographing is permitted outside the Haunted Majestic but once you enter the tour we ask that you turn off your phones and cameras.
What happens if it rains?
Much of the Haunted Majestic tour is indoors so a little rain won’t stop the show. However, if heavy rain or storms are present the event may be delayed or close on a case by case basis for the safety of our visitors who must wait outside for their turn to tour the attraction. Anytime the haunt would have to close due to weather your unused ticket will be honored on any other night we are open for scares.
Are there concessions available on site?
Yes. Haunted Majestic does have several concession options for visitors including sandwiches, side items and drinks, as well as a picnic area on site for eating and relaxing.
Are there restrooms on site?
Yes. There are several portable restrooms available for guests near the Haunted Majestic ticket booth and concession area.
Does my ticket get me access to special guests?
Yes. Haunted Majestic will have special guests on site every night! TV celebrities, horror writers, vehicles used in movies and TV, and more. Your admission ticket includes photo opportunities and meet/greet with all of our special guests. Free autographs may be limited to purchased memorabilia by some special guests but all special guests, including their vehicles, will be available for free photo opportunities to anyone with a General Admission, Fast Pass or Season Pass. If you want to see a special guest who is appearing on a night other than the night you have purchased a ticket for, you will need to purchase another ticket for that night or upgrade to a Season Pass.
Will Haunted Majestic’s special guests have merchandise for sale?
Yes. Most guests will have a merchandise table where you can purchase t-shirts, photos, books, and other items they bring.
Is there a cost for parking?
Yes. The staff at the adjacent Robert Newlon Airport will provide and manage parking for the Haunted Majestic events. The cost is $5 per car.
Can I upgrade to a Season Pass after going through the haunt?
Yes. If you visit Haunted Majestic and decide later you want to upgrade to a Season Pass all you need to do is show proof of your visit with a ticket stub and the ticket amount will be deducted from the Season Pass price.
Does the haunt use fog machines or strobe lights?
Yes. Haunted Majestic does use fog machines, flashing lights, strobe lights, loud noises such as sirens and air horns, and bursts of compressed air at various places throughout the haunt. If you believe any of these may cause an adverse reaction you should consider not going on the tour.
Is Haunted Majestic available for private rentals?
Yes. The barges and grounds are available for private rentals for such events as private paranormal investigations, weddings, birthdays, and other similar events. A basic rental guideline can be found by clicking here: “ Haunted Majestic Rental Guidelines. “
