While spooky attractions began to gain popularity with the opening of Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum in the 1880s with its Chamber of Horrors, according to, the first place that had dim lights and disembodied wailing was opened in 1919 by a British amusement rid manufacturer.

Early haunted houses were often created by neighborhoods to amuse the local kids, then they became fundraisers for community non-profits. It was not until the opening of Disney’s Haunted Mansion in 1969 that anyone thought of them becoming a for-profit venture. Now they are part of the Halloween industry that brings in more than $12 billion per year.
