#9 Haunted Overload – Lee, New Hampshire – www.hauntedoverload.com: Haunted Overload is an outdoor attraction like no other. Described as The Ultimate Halloween Experience, it blends gigantic original sets and oversized creatures with lush sound, lighting and award-winning costumes for a terrifying experience that is utterly unique. Pumpkin alley with hundreds of hand carved jack-o-lanterns is not to be missed by any lover of Halloween. Haunted Overload can be found every year on various best haunts lists both nationally and internationally, and in 2014 won the grand prize on America’s Great Halloween Fright Fight on ABC. In 2015 it was listed as Hauntworld’s #1 haunt.
Set in an eerie forest in New England, it brings to life the true feel of vintage Halloween terror. Each season the dedicated Haunted Overload crew creates entirely new twists to its trails and takes each added scene to unimagined heights. The Victorian-themed Abaddon Hall stuns patrons with its detail. The incredibly over-the-top Sinister Circus gives horrifying new meaning to the term “Big Top”. The New Fortress of the Damned is a crowd pleaser as well. Haunted Overload is partnered with the Cocheco Valley Humane Society and gives a percentage of its proceeds to help local animals. It’s located at DeMeritt Hill Farm, a traditional stop for apple picking, blueberries, pumpkins and home-made goodies from the farm store. The farm also offers seasonal holiday hayrides and classes.
