When picking a Halloween event for the whole family to enjoy, there are a few important factors for parents to consider. "Every child is different in terms of fright level, and every haunted attraction has its own cautions and restrictions," warns Lissa Poirot, editor of Family Vacation Critic. "If you're concerned that your child may be too scared for certain attractions, visit the website of the haunted house, and note any warnings or rules related to children. And above all, keep in mind your child's individual sensitivities; if they aren't fans of scary movies and/or video games, you may want to reconsider the extra-scary haunted house."
