Erebus was named as one of the best haunted attractions in the United States in 2018.

America Haunts, an industry association of premiere haunt attractions nationwide, says the list of most distinguished haunt attractions have a history of brewing up scares through monstrous creativity, investment and technological expertise.

The attractions were selected for "wicked ingenuity," fierce storylines, advanced costuming and prosthetics and responsive animatronics.

For Erebus, ranked number three, America Haunts wrote: 

This world-renowned four-story fortress of fear provokes blood-curdling screams throughout its half mile walk indoors. Its intense special effects and elaborate sets feature things that will grab, bite, land on top of its victims, and even bury them alive! After years of preying on its victims’ phobias and senses, it is now a staple in Metro Detroit’s Halloween Tradition. 

Others named were Bennett's Curse in Baltimore, Spooky World in Litchfield, New Hampshire, Haunted Hayride and Bates Motel Haunted House in Philadelphia and 13th Floor Haunted House in Denver.
