WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. -- Looking for a good scare this Halloween? The area now has more options.
After a one-year absence from Playland Amusement Park due to Hurricane Sandy, Scared by the Sound Haunted House is back for its 15th season complete with its long-beloved Crypt Walk, Haunted Wine Cellar and Library along with some new attractions. The event runs weekends from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. Fridays, 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. Saturdays and 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. Sundays from Oct. 4 to Nov. 1.
