October, the month of pumpkin spice, costumes and above all else, haunted houses is a favorite around these parts. Being the hardy New Englanders that we are, we can’t get enough of the macabre and frightful. Let us help you along on these last ghostly nights and show you all things horrific and ghastly in these haunted houses. Watch your back or you may not make it out alive. You have been warned!
|5. Factory of Terror – Worcester|
Directions: From South Station take the Worcester line to Worcester. Take the Number 1 bus and get off at Factory of Terror.

|2. Connors Farm’ Corn Maze – Danvers|
Directions: From North Station, take either the Newburyport or Rockport lines to North Beverly. From there we advise grabbing a taxi to 30 Valley Road, Danvers. Should only be about a 15 minute ride.
|1. Hammond’s Castle – Gloucester|
Each year has a different theme and route through the castle, so don’t get too comfortable if you went last year– you’re still in for a scare.
You start your experience off with a haunted bus ride from Stage Fort Park to the castle. From there, you are led down to the haunted house, sometimes escorted by Mr. Hannibal Letcor himself. Watch out or you could end up leaving without a finger or two.
If you think you are safe when you make it back outside of the castle walls, you are sorely mistaken. Ghouls of all kinds lurk in the woods, so watch your back. Warning: They are not afraid to chase you.
Directions: At North Station take the Rockport line to Gloucester. A cab will take you to Stage Fort Park for about 5 dollars. From there take the free shuttle to the castle.
