Haunting By Numbers: 2011 Haunt Season

With the 2011 haunt season firmly in the rearview mirror, it is time to reflect on the pertinent numbers from the latest season of screams.

23: Total number of haunted attractions visited last fall at 18 separate locations, smashing the previous record of 12 first set in 2009 and then matched in 2010.

10:  Fright filled nights spent on the road searching for that next haunt fix, the most nights out of any previous season.

9: New, never before visited haunts, yet another one season record.

9: The number of counties we traveled to on various haunt expeditions, a single season record. Those counties included Wayne, Lenawee, Hillsdale, Macomb, Washtenaw, Ingham, Genesee, Monroe, and Lucas County in Ohio.

210: Dollars spent on haunted attractions – this figure does not include food and gas.

729: Miles traveled driving to and from Michigan’s scariest places.

78: Number of miles traveled (one way) to The Crypt in Burton, Michigan –the most distantly located haunt of the season.

5: Consecutive years that we have visited the Wyandotte Jaycees haunted attraction, currently the longest such streak.

6: Number of visits to The Scream Machine over the years, the most among all attractions.

  1. The Disco Devil Says:

    Wow, 700 of those miles are probably on my car.

    • The Discomobile certainly traveled the bulk of the miles. I believe the only long distance night you didn’t drive was the trip to The Haunting and Darksyde Acres. Don’t worry Sco I don’t plan to break the single season record for haunts yet again this season; I’m approaching the 2012 haunt season as quality over quantity.
