Scared By the Sound Haunted House

About Scared by the Sound

2018 marks the 19th consecutive year of Scared by the Sound Haunted House located at historic Playland Amusement Park. The only thing scarier than a closed and abandoned amusement park after dark is what you'll experience at this 12,000 square foot haunted house and cemetery, located next to the darkened rides and Seaside Walk. This haunt is also home to a terrifying cast of characters all awaiting for your arrival and most eager to help you get your Halloween season adrenaline rush.

Rated one of the best haunts in New York in all categories, Scared by the Sound is open for 9 nights this October and is also open rain or shine with free parking. Tickets are available in advance online or at the box office nights of the event.

Please be sure to visit us at our permanent Scared by the Sound Interactive display located at Playland Amusement Park all season long. Watch the video monitor as unsuspecting Park goers are transformed into ZOMBIES in real time.


This is a walk-through dark attraction. Night time event may be too scary for children under 10 years of age, alone or with an adult. Strobe lighting and fog may be in use during this night time event. Persons adversely affected by these effects are advised not to enter.
