The Underground Vaults
This haunted attraction rests in Edinburgh, Scotland. These so-called vaults remained untouched for over 200 years before they were rediscovered. Before this lengthy period, these vaults served as cellars, workshops, and even places to live for local merchants until waste management and other health issues cropped up and forced them to be abandoned.
At this point, the homeless of the area took up residence here and the vaults became overrun with the plague. It is even rumoured that bodysnatchers used these vaults to store corpses for a time. This locale is know for being one of the most haunted spots worldwide and tours are offered for those who wish to experience this space firsthand.
The LaLaurie Mansion
This landmark in New Orleans, Louisiana has a gruesome past. In the 1800s Madame LaLaurie and her husband, a physicist, owned this house. Within its walls they used slaves that they had purchased for their unspeakable experiments.
It was a fire that led local officials to the home where some of the experiments in progress were discovered, including slaves chained to walls with internal organs that were complete exposed. Madame LaLaurie and her husband left New Orleans after this discovery but many claim to have seen the ghosts of these murdered slaves still inhabiting the attic.
The Aokigahara Forest is located in Japan and is definitely not for anyone who has an ounce of fear in their heart. Also known as Suicide Forest, its name is telling of what happens there. This forest is known for having somewhere in the neighborhood of 80 suicides each year.
It has been said that anyone who enters Suicide Forest may come upon sights that are too disturbing to mention. This forest, located next to Mount Fuji, has several theories surrounding its dark nature. Some say that large iron deposits in the ground interfere with compasses and this ensnares unsuspecting travellers. Others say that the trees pulsate with the ominous energies of all those who have taken their lives there.
These haunted places may be too much for most. Still, to those who thrive on fear they could be irresistible travel destinations. Just make sure you know what you are getting yourself into before you go.
