Established in 1982, Kennesaw State's athletics program first competed in the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics. In the mid-90s, the Owls migrated to the NCAA, where they claimed 7 Division II championships in activities as diverse as men's basketball, cheerleading, and women's soccer. Just as a real owl hones its night vision until it stops stubbing its talons on branches, the school continued its ascent until it joined the Division I Atlantic Sun Conference, netting two national tournament appearances in women's soccer as well as championships in men's track and field and women's cross-country.
Allyn Glover, the mastermind behind 13 Stories Haunted House, began testing his friends’ courage at the age of 13, when he constructed a homemade haunted trail.

On the off chance the house doesn’t do the trick, the Big Top Secret in 3D outdoor attraction attempts to scare guests with horror-filled images brought to life with the magic of 3-D glasses.
