Haunted Houses in Arkansas for Halloween 2016
In 2016, Halloween haunted houses in Arkansas are very scary entertainment. Haunted attractions have lots of zombies, demons, chainsaw murders, and aliens come out around Halloween. Most haunts have animatronics, quality Hollywood type sets, air blasters, costumed actors, and professional makeup. Just visit one of the many haunted attractions around Little Rock, Hot Springs, Fayetteville or Jonesboro to know that. They’ve exported one of the scariest business known to humankind to the rest of the world: Walmart. So in October avoid the Arkansas haunted houses at all costs. Unless you are up for a good scare at Halloween!
