September 23rd marked the first day of the 2015 Autumnal Equinox, also known as the first day of fall. And with the first day of fall brings a season full of a beautifully changing landscape, cooler weather, and seasonal drinks. As the temperature drops and Halloween approaches, haunted houses throughout Louisville begin to open their doors for the season and offer what has come to be a traditional outing for teenagers and adults alike.
Most haunted houses only operate on Friday and Saturday with some even being open on Sunday if there is a corn maze or some other activity that can be done during daylight hours. Every location usually runs through most of September and all of October. In no particular order is a list of every haunted house in Louisville open this year.
