Selecting a "Haunt of the Year" winner was especially difficult this year, as it's tough to separate the leaders of the pack.
New for 2005 is the top "outdoor" haunt award, which includes trails and hayrides.  These regularly score lower than the top
 indoor attractions, and having their own award will allow them the opportunity to be recognized for a job well done.  Outdoor haunts
 remain eligible for the overall list, if they score high enough to make it.  The 2005 winners are listed below:
