This haunted house infographic sheds some light on a scary pastime. According to the data, scaring people brings in the big bucks with 157,937,121 Americans planning on celebrating Halloween this year.

Wanting to cater to the adrenaline junkies looking for a fearful rush, there are 4,500 haunted house attractions in the U.S. alone, 1,200 of which are solely for commercial purposes and 300 which are part of larger amusement park set-ups. A little over 20% of the aforementioned Halloween-celebrating folks will go to a haunted house this year.

The infographic also informs us who of this 20% is most likely to go, breaking down haunted house popularity by region (with the Northeast leading by 22%), sex (men are 24% more likely to attend that women) and age (18-24 years of age being the most popular demographic).
