I would bet that the people who run these review sites would know more than enough about the haunted attraction business and haunting in general to validate their reviews (especially some of the bigger and better known websites). Their goals are noble: to give a fair and objective review of haunts in the area and allow consumers to compare one to another and find one that best suits their interest.

It should also be noted that review sites have helped to make our patrons better educated about haunted attractions. They will most likely read a few reviews and maybe other articles on haunting or halloween. Maybe they hit a link to hauntworld and get to this forum lol...
