A haunted attraction is a form of entertainment that simulates the experience of entering a haunted location that might be inhabited by ghosts, monsters, witches, serial killers, or humorous characters including The Addams Family, Casper the Friendly Ghost, and The Munsters. Haunted attractions can take place in many locations, including temporarily constructed simulated "haunted houses" or actual abandoned and dilapidated homes, corn mazes or cornfields, hedge mazes, farms or farmhouses, wooded areas or forests, abandoned asylums, defunct or old prisons, abandoned amusement parks or active amusement parks, ships or boats, abandoned factories, shopping malls, and parks.

Haunted attractions (also known as "haunts" or "mazes" within the industry) use many effects, intense lighting (strobe lights, black lights, and so forth), animatronics, CGI, scent dispensers, fog machines, air blasters, old antiques, gory images, and intense scenes of terror, torment, crime, mischief, or comedy. Visitors often come in contact with various actors dressed up in elaborate and often scary costumes, masks, and prosthetics; these actors perform skits or hide and jump out unexpectedly to scare, shock, disturb, or amuse the customer.

There are around 100 amusement parks in Japan. Therefore, more than half of amusement parks have haunted attractions.

Originally, Japan has traditions of so-called "Japanese horror".
Maybe you already know the Japanese horror movies such as "Ju-On (The Grudge)" or "One Missed Call".
Compared with American or western horror movie, Japanese horror movie is more like creepy than surprising.
The specialities about Japanese horror movie is people usually die for irrational reason and there are no way to stop it.
For example, in Ju-on movie, all the people die if they step in to one house. It doesn't make sense at all.
Japanese people like these kinds of creepy horror movie. And that maybe is the reason why there are a lot of haunted attractions in Japan.

In this article, let me introduce best 5 Japanese horror attractions.

1. The Haunted Hospital ( Fujikyu Highland / 富士急ハイランド)

Unlike Haunted Mansion of Tokyo Disney Land, this attraction is designed to walk through from the beginning to the end which means you cannot just close your eyes and let everything go.

There are many attractive attraction other than The haunted hospital at Fujikyu Highland.
