Scared by the Sound Haunted House is located at the historic Playland Amusement Park. The only thing scarier than a closed and seemingly abandoned amusement park after dark is what you'll experience at this 12,000 square foot haunted house and cemetery which are located right next to the stopped rides and seaside walk. The haunt is also home to a terrifying cast of characters all awaiting for your arrival and eager to help you get your Halloween season adrenaline rush.

Rated one of the best haunts in New York in all categories, Scared by the Sound is open for 10 nights this October and is open rain or shine with free parking.

Review This Haunt
  • Like no other

    His haunted house really takes the cake, with its attention to detail and the ability to scare without the use of gore or kitschy chainsaw routines, it is truly one of a kind. Every room in this haunted "maze" is different but all of them have their own theme with small details that really make them unique and well thought out. I have gone every year since it has opened and I will continue to return. Definitely get a good bang for your buck and check it out!

  • Def. Recommend!

    First off, the price of the ticket is very reasonable. While waiting in line they have actors creep up behind you so it makes the waiting time enjoyable. As you walk thru the house, each room has a different theme which I love. And they also have hidden cameras that takes pictures of you as you get scared that you can buy at the end of the house. It is not a quick walk-thru either. It's at least a half hour!
