A zombie grabs a flag from the belt of someone walking through the Prison of the Dead Escape at Shocktoberfest in Reading, Pa. Halloween-themed attractions are becoming more interactive, with guests no longer merely passive observers walking through a haunted house, but often engaging in a game or challenge as part of the experience.
Guests navigate the “Insidious: Into the Further” maze at Universal Studios Hollywood. The Halloween attraction is based on the blockbuster film “Insidious: Chapter 2.”
