That will never heal if you keep picking at it.
The chainsaws are being gassed up, the fake blood is ready to start dripping from the walls, and the cast members are getting their costumes and macabre-looking masks in order. The proprietors of several haunted house around the Valley are busy putting the final touches on their horror-inducing attractions as they're getting an early start on the Halloween season this year.

While most haunted houses are waiting until the calendar gets closer All Hallows Eve, a total of four different scare parks and fear factories will make their 2012 debuts next weekend as they'll open to the public on Friday, September 21.

Get ready to scream your lungs out and check out our rundown of who's opening early.

Chambers of Fear
Haunted house impresario Paul Boyd has been scaring the bejeezus outta people for a quarter of a century. Starting with a relatively diminutive Halloween display built in the three-car garage of his home around 25 years ago, he's caused countless local residents to scream with his horrific haunts. The screaming has gotten louder and more frequent over the decade as Boyd and his company Graveyard Entertainment have created larger and more frightening attractions across the Valley, including his latest joint Chambers of Fear. For the past three years this surreal-looking Surprise attraction packs plenty of gory frights and fearsome fun into its macabre 25,000-square-foot milieu. Visitors wind their way through a twisting maze of rooms populated by reanimated corpses, autopsy victims, and other outlandish individuals. New features this year include the "Hillbilly Nightmare" (described as a "government nuclear testing zone") and the "Den of Darkness."

Hours and Prices: 7 p.m.-midnight, Friday and Saturdays through October 27; 7-10 p.m., Thursdays and Sundays starting October 4, and 7 p.m.-midnight daily starting October 17 through October 31. Admission starts at $20.
