Located near Rupp Arena Screampark features live entertainment in addition to three prime attractions, which include The Castle of Fear which ends in a real graveyard (presumably the Lexington Cemetery), Insanity which contains scenes of torture and some gore (fans of Saw should appreciate this) and the Abyss which is a pitch-black labyrinth. This attraction starts Thursdays thru Sundays on September 24th and costs fifteen (15) dollars for general admission. Be prepared to wait a bit to see the attractions as this is a popular destination for Central Kentuckians who want to get their Halloween freak on.
Baxter Avenue Morgue – 2
This attraction in Louisville is supposedly haunted, though I can’t imagine why. After all, it’s only a morgue. One of my friends said you can actually stay the night in the morgue – IF YOU DARE!!! This attraction is open every Thursday, Friday and Saturday starting in October. Admission is fifteen (15) dollars for adults and eight (8) dollars for children.
Misery Manor – 3
It’s back after a six-year abscence in a new location. That’s pretty much all I could glean from the website. It doesn’t give a location but perhaps more information will come once it gets closer to the big day. At least, one would hope.
Nightmare Forest – 4
Located off I-265(aka the Gene Snyder) on Preston Highway in Louisville, the Nightmare Forest is a terrifying walk through the woods. It’s seriously doubtful that friendly woodland creatures will be abounding on your stroll through nature. Tickets are sold every Friday and Saturday in October for $19.95.
