BEST FOOD - 2 WAY TIE: HAUNTED FARM OF TERROR, LENOX TWP. & ROTTEN MANOR, HOLLY

The ROADKILL CAFE at HAUNTED FARM OF TERROR features super tasty food at reasonable prices. The TACO IN A BAG is a big winner, and the fresh cider and donuts are second to none!

BEST GIANT ACTOR - BESTMAZE, WILLIAMSTON

BEST HAYRIDE - HAUNTED FARM OF TERROR, LENOX TWP.

BEST INNOVATION - SCAREFEST SCREAM PARK, LENOX TWP.

Several things earned this award here. Their pre-season haunted camp outs have become a stellar success, and unique to this haunt. Participants spend the night in tents they bring, and all the attractions are open. THE CHARGE is a dramatic stunt (see BEST SPECTACULAR STUNT below), also an innovation of this haunt. Finally, the addition of a 4D EXPERIENCE RIDE was the icing on the cake here.

BEST JAW DROPPING GAG - THE SCREAM MACHINE, TAYLOR

For the otherworldly medical room scene. WOWSER!

BEST LIQUID SKY DISPLAY - NIGHT TERRORS AT WIARD’S, YPSILANTI

BEST MAKEUP - HUSH HAUNTED ATTRACTION, WESTLAND

BEST MAJOR ADDITION - ROTTEN MANOR, HOLLY

For their new GINGERBREAD HOUSE, part of the forest. You’ll feel like Hansel and Gretel following the path of giant lollypops into this eloquently decorated house. Once inside, a pair of actors involve you in their unique story land adventure and send you on your way in blazing fashion!

BEST MAZE - BESTMAZE, WILLIAMSTON

BEST MINIATURE MARVELS - SHAWHAVEN FARMS, MASON

BEST PARTY ZONE - 2 WAY TIE: SCAREFEST SCREAM PARK, LENOX TWP. & SHAWHAVEN FARMS, MASON

At SCAREFEST, the beer tent earned this award along with a carnival like vibe. At SHAWHAVEN, a live DJ crankin’ the tunes along with tasty treats from the food bar and free pizza prizes from a local pizzeria combined to earn this award.

BEST PHYSICAL THRILL - 2 WAY TIE: SLAUGHTERHOUSE, FOWLERVILLE & JACKSON’S UNDERWORLD, JACKSON

BEST QUEUE LINE ENTERTAINMENT - AZRA, MADISON HEIGHTS

Where else can you go to a HAUNTED CAMP OUT?! This early season event in September sells out regularly.

BEST SILLY GAG - SLAUGHTERHOUSE, FOWLERVILLE

BEST SOUND - THE HAUNT, GRAND RAPIDS

BEST SPECTACULAR STUNT - SCAREFEST SCREAM PARK, LENOX TWP.

For THE CHARGE, which occurs only once per night at opening time. A movie screen suddenly bursts open, revealing the entire cast of all the attractions here who then CHARGE the crowd. A monster sound & lighting system combined with the unbridled energy of the cast sets this stunt apart from any other haunt!

BEST 3-D - JACKSON’S UNDERWORLD, JACKSON
