Haunted Overload in the News

Eric Lowther and Haunted Overload have been making news since the early 2000’s when the haunt took shape in the front yard of Eric’s home in New Hampshire.  Over the past few years, the haunt has grown from being a local attraction that only a limited number of people knew about, into a internationally known haunted attraction admired by all who come to experience it.

In 2014, Haunted Overload was featured as the last stop on the Legendary Haunt Tour.

This international exposure brought the attention of industry experts from around the world to admire the work put into designing, building and running this haunted attraction.

Throughout the years, Haunted Overload has been featured on numerous Television, Radio, Magazines and Newspapers throughout the world. Below are a few links to some of the publications it has been featured in throughout the years.
