About Scared By The Sound
2016 marks the 17th consecutive year of Scared by the Sound Haunted House located at the historic Playland Amusement Park. The only thing scarier than a closed and seemingly abandoned amusement park after dark is what you'll experience at this 12,000 square foot haunted house and cemetery which are located right next to the stopped rides and seaside walk. The haunt is also home to a terrifying cast of characters all awaiting for your arrival and 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 10 nights this October and is open rain or shine with free parking.

Tickets are available in advance online or at the box office.

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.

Q: What is a Walk-Through Haunted House?
A: This walk-through style Haunted house is comprised of many highly detailed Halloween related scenes designed to bring you face to face with your worst fears and phobias. Custom built exclusively for use during the month of October, the main haunt itself is located under covered pavilions to protect against the elements. Other parts of the event are located outside.
Q: How long does it take?
A: Depending on the night, wait times on line vary with busier nights and longer wait times being closer to Halloween. The timed haunt experience averages 17-18 minutes. Come earlier in the month for the same bone chilling experience with less wait times on line. We also suggest purchasing tickets in advance online.

A: Groups are limited to a maximum of 7 persons at a time with some exceptions made when smaller persons make up part of group wishing to confront the unknown together.
Q: What if it's too scary?
A: If at any time a person decides the haunt is more than they can deal with they can tell any of the personnel inside of their desire to leave. They will be promptly and immediately escorted out through one of the interior exits. Upon exiting they will not be allowed back in the haunt but will instead be instructed on where they can reunite with their group. In addition there are NO REFUNDS.
Q: Will any of the actors touch me?
A: No! There is a no contact rule in this haunt that includes patrons. You do not touch anyone or anything and you will not be touched. Should intentional touching by a patron occur you will be immediately escorted off the premises without completing the event.
Q: Are there pictures allowed inside?
A: No. No cameras, camcorders, cell phones, glow sticks, flashlights or any other source of artificial light is permitted.
