GREENSBORO, N.C. (WNCN) — Looking for some scary spots to enjoy this spooky season? Luckily, people in central North Carolina don’t have to go too far to find the top frightening attractions in the state.
FrightFind.com, a digital horror publication that keeps a database of the best haunted hotspots in the country, has released their 2023 list of the top haunts in each state.
This year, the site named Greensboro’s Woods of Terror as the top scary attraction in North Carolina.
“Woods of Terror in Greensboro, recognized by outlets such as MSN, USA Today, and Buzzfeed, transcends the typical haunted attraction to deliver an immersive haunted theme park experience.” FrightFind says. “As you immerse yourself in this frightfully realistic horror film set, nearly two hundred actors are committed to inducing sheer terror.”

The haunted thrill park is located at 5601 Church St. in Greensboro.
