However, first, we need to discuss the haunted attractions... Science says we pay money to get the snot scared out of us because it's an opportunity to experience fear on our terms. In fact, one article I found said that haunted houses provide the 'ideal emotional cocktail' for thrill seekers. Why? Experts call it 'recreational fear.' Some people even use recreational fear to overcome anxiety and banish our fears. An example would be to stand on a bridge in order to overcome a fear of heights. Recreational fear is defined by @Amélia_psychologue on Instagram as, 'fear that is intentionally sought after.' In short, it's a mix of fear and fun and can give us the courage to face everyday life.
So, if you've been following along, the moral of the story is that visiting haunted houses/attractions can be good for you. Better grab your calendar and hit them all!
