Since opening its horror-filled halls in 1994, this multimillion-dollar attraction has spared no expense to make your skin crawl. A single room in this 36,000-square-foot fear factory can cost up to $100,000 to create, and they've got more than 30 -- each with a unique theme, terrifyingly realistic props and Hollywood-caliber animatronic monsters. Filled with slithering snakes, giant spiders, killer clowns and creepy undead creatures, every inch of this haunted house is designed to push your panic button.

The Olympic Cauldron is also located in the Salt Lake 2002 Olympic Cauldron Park, where it's frequented by locals and visitors alike. The steel-and-glass structure was designed to look like an icicle, so the fire burning inside it is able to be seen through the glass on the outside. Water trickles down the glass sides of the cauldron to give the effect of melting ice. From the ground up, the cauldron stands 72 feet tall and is made up of 738 pieces of glass.
