6. Scarehouse Pinellas Haunted House
Scarehouse Pinellas is back for its 3rd year and this year you can expect new thrills and scares around every corner in the 10,000 sq ft, air conditioned warehouse. The terrifying tour takes you through the aftermath of last year’s red tide outbreak. After it had infected so many last year, we were thankful to find an anecdote to reverse everything back to normal, or so we thought. The anecdote hadn’t been fully tested and the side effects were unknown…until now.
Tickets are $15
