ScareHouse exists within a 100-year-old haunted building where designers, artists, and veteran fear experts combine genuine history with modern technological magic to create a haunted house experience unlike any other attraction. “Pittsburgh’s Ultimate Haunted House” is only open on select dates from September 15 through October 29th.

Admission into ScareHouse includes three terrifying haunts for one price:

New for 2017: The Sunset Lodge invites guests to check-in to a hotel that’s fully occupied  ... by a swarm of savage serial killers!

Nocturnia 3-D:  This twisted carnival of clowns and creatures is longer, weirder, and packed with ALL NEW 3-D effects for 2017.

Infernal: A collection of cursed artifacts from the darkest corners of the world released a legion of demons from the deepest depths of Hell.

ScareHouse’s notorious and world famous immersive attraction, The Basement, requires additional ticket purchase. Guests must be 18 or older, must sign waiver, and will be touched, blindfolded and restrained. This attraction contains high voltage effects involving electricity, very low lighting, tight spaces, strong scents, profanity, moments of complete darkness, water, physical contact, violent situations, and high impact scares.
