Scare Factor:
2013 is the Haunted Hotel's 25th year in operation and it's 2nd year under new ownership. This year, the Hotel continues to provide the Louisville area with the extreme and high-energy scares that it's come to be known for with some new scenes and original actors to boot! Step into the Haunted Hotel and your friendly, un-dead concierge will send you down the elevator, where you'll navigate the horrific rooms and passageways that have been overcome by sinister and demonic staff and visitors, amongst other things. If you make it outside, returning customers will notice that the 2nd half of the attraction has been lengthened and evidence of foul play lingers as you witness the various experiments that the Haunted Hotel's Dr. Singe has been working on. Also new this year are the Haunted Hotel season passes, which offer unlimited access to the Hotel as well as a plethora of other goodies you'll be sure to take advantage of for one low price! If you're looking for an extreme haunt in the Louisville area and money's a little tight, look no further because “The price of a night's not paid in gold... The price of a night is YOUR mortal soul!”

Returning for it's 31st season in 2013, this legendary haunt is now known as Nightmare Forest Haunt Park, bringing you 5 attractions at one location for one ticket price! New this season you can experience Hawthorne's Circus Bizarre, a creepily entertaining sideshow where you may witness some very painful and awing stunts! During your adventure through Nightmare Forest, you will once again get the opportunity to step into some of your favorite horror movie scenes and come face to face with the villains within them! A few of these are Hellraiser, Nightmare on Elm Street, Sinister, and Texas Chainsaw Massacre where Leatherface has no mercy for those trudging through his home! There is no turning back once you have entered the cities within Trail of Terror where the zombie apocalypse is rising and they don't seem to take human presence too lightly! The Drive-In is a movie-viewing environment that “engulfs you into the horror.” Dueling banjos can be heard from various areas of the park, leaving you guessing just where they are coming from... later to find out that they are echoing from within the corn rows of Nightmare Harvest, where a madman is patiently waiting for you to take the wrong turn into his workshop! Have you got what it takes to make it out of these 5 attractions alive? You will have to pay them a visit and find out!

Team: Editors
Scare Factor:
Hill of Terror is going on their 4th year of instilling fear into the souls that are daring enough to climb aboard their hayride to the top of the hill. New this season, they have paired up with Rootin' Tootin' paintball, to bring you an experience that involves shooting LIVE zombies with paintball guns! Another new addition this season is Shivers Lodge, a very mind-boggling cabin that you must try to escape! This is by far one of the longest single attractions we have visited to date and offers many unsuspected startles and alarming special effects the whole way! Make sure you wear your walking shoes! This adventure can last anywhere from 45 minutes to over an hour and will take you through the dark woods, in and out of the corn, and through additional scare zones where you may get your clothes dirty or even wet! The crew's motto is “if we don't scare them, entertain them”, which they do, very well! If your looking for an attraction that more than doubles it's ticket price in length, then you should check out Hill of Terror, where no matter what scares you, they've probably got it covered!

Team: Editors
Scare Factor:
2013 is Sandyland Acres' 8th season of providing customers with a family-friendly haunted hayride and the scarier barn known as “Farmer's Revenge.” The owners and staff began renovating for this season back in March and didn't stop until the day they opened to the public. This year, Sandyland has replaced some of their movie characters with some originals of their own and villains from other horror flicks like Jeepers Creepers, Silence of the Lambs and Friday the 13th. But others like Leatherface, Pinhead and the aliens can still be found in one of the two attractions that Sandyland has to offer. For a haunted house and hayride that the whole family can enjoy, be sure to visit Sandyland Acres in Petersburg, KY.

Mayhem Mansion is going on it's 8th season in 2013. This is a charity haunt where proceeds support the Boone County FOP “Shop with Cop” program. This is also an old school haunt, which means you won't find any animatronics here. But what you will find is a lot of energetic and interactive acting combined with many original ideas! Once you enter this house through the only window that isn't boarded up, you will feel like you just took at huge step back in time because this theme takes place in the 1930s during prohibition! Read on to find out the whole theme behind Mayhem Mansion... where we were told “It is their job to scare the sh!t out of you, and they will deliver!”

Scream Acres Ct

Reviewed by: Team Zombillies on 10/11/2013
Team: Editors
Scare Factor:
Scream Acres Ct. has transformed from a 9-year home haunt into a first year pro haunt for 2013! This 20,000 square foot attraction is located just South of Cincinnati and offers four diverse themes, including Buried Alive, the Castle Hill Funeral Home, The Funhouse in 3D, and Blackout. Buried Alive, as it's name implies, tests your ability to withstand being put in a life-sized coffin and being buried 6 feet under in a realistic coffin simulator. The Castle Hill Funeral Home lets you live the story of Dr. Boron, the deranged and torturous doctor who acquired this rustic establishment back in 1940, while the Funhouse envelops you in a 3D environment complete with clowns and other mind-bending effects and Blackout weeds out the brave from the backward in this very 'dark' attraction! Be sure to check out one of the newest pro haunts in the area this season by checking out Scream Acres Ct., where “the fear returns to greater Cincinnati!”

This year is Wicked World’s 4th season at their new location. We missed the opportunity to visit them in 2012, but we could tell that the staff have been working wonders since the last time we reviewed them in 2011. Wicked World Scaregrounds offers two differently-themed attractions at one competitive price! The highlight of the Scaregrounds was Nightmare Haunted House, which has the theme of Mercy Hospital. It has held this theme for several years and brings to life the story of how this old hospital and the people inside have succumbed to “The Darkness.” Only this year, Nightmare has introduced the notion as one very sinister character that you won’t want to miss! The second attraction at Wicked World is the Darkwood Carnival, where you’ll find many different carnival- and clown-themed scenes and monsters as well as a few familiar and original characters. Together, these two attractions make for a horrific night that you and your friends won’t soon forget!

Asylum Haunted Scream Park

http://www.asylumhaunts.com
Reviewed by: Team Zombillies on 10/18/2013
Team: Editors
Scare Factor:
Asylum Haunted Screampark (AHS) is now in their 3rd year of operation. Since joining forces with Darkness Falls on Asylum (now in its 6th year), which continues to terrorize South-Eastern Louisville, Kentucky, AHS introduced three new attractions back in 2011: Zombie City, Zombie Hunting (now “Xterminate”) and the Carnivale of Lost Souls. Zombie City’s new tag line is “Mutations.” Much like a movie series, such as “Resident Evil” or “Underworld,” Zombie City: Mutations is the 3rd installment of this very theatrical haunt that’s more of an interactive performance, rather than your typical dark attraction, which makes it one of the most unique haunts in our review area! While new customers will completely understand its theme, returning haunters will fully appreciate the changes that have been made to get customers more involved with the story. Darkness Falls on Asylum is a collection of your worst fears brought to life and residing on this ¾-mile-long trail that also has many new, elaborate scenes and characters for you to scream at! Xterminate: Zalien Attack is a one-of-a-kind, walk-through haunt that arms you with weapons and sends you on a mission to exterminate the zombie-alien invasion that has infiltrated this abandoned warehouse! Lastly, the Carnivale of Lost Souls is the family-friendly midway with carnival style games, a zombie-shooting gallery, freak shows and roaming actors to entertain those that may not be quite ready for the scarier stuff. This way, the brave ones in the bunch can go see the scary stuff while the youngsters (and scaredy-cats) can be entertained by the shows and games offered on the midway! If a unique attraction in the Louisville area with excellent, theatrical characters, bone-chilling scares, and all-night entertainment for the whole family is what you’re looking for, then be sure to visit Asylum Haunted Screampark!

Scare Factor:
Dead End Hotel is a new haunt to the Louisville area for 2013! This year they are bringing you more of an old school haunt that is full of energetic acting! They stick to their theme of an old run down hotel that was built in the 1940s but was forced to close in the 70’s after a mysterious death and other dead bodies were recovered, hindering the hotel’s business. During your stay you will experience a fiendish bellhop, a dead dealer, a barbaric bartender, a lethal librarian and other startling spirits that have continued to scare off the innocent souls that enter this hotel. We were impressed with the scene detail in this attraction for its first year and can’t wait to see what they have in store for next season! As Dead End Hotel asks, “Will you make it out alive or will YOU be the next victim of….the Dead End Hotel?” Add a new haunt to your list in 2013 and find out for yourself!

2013 is USS Nightmare’s 22nd year in operation as one of the most unique haunted attractions in the Cincinnati area. Located aboard the real, wrecked steamboat that was originally christened as the “William S. Mitchell,” USS Nightmare also has one of the most original and authentic settings and themes in our review territory! So far, they have never failed to impress our review group with their excellent actors, exquisitely-detailed scenes and their real props and machines that once operated the old dredge, but are now used to terrorize Newport, KY. If some high-quality acting and scenes and an original theme are in your search criteria for a haunted house in the Cincinnati area, then make sure USS Nightmare is at the top of your must-see list for the Halloween season!
