The best part of Fall for me, isn't the cider donuts or pumpkin spice everything, it's the high quality, well produced haunted attractions that turn innocent corn fields and farm trails into hair-raising hayrides and pastures of evil.  We have some great haunted attractions in the Capital Region and they will begin their 2018 season in less than a few weeks.  Here's your ghostly guide to 5 of the most horrifying haunts and hair-raising rides.
