If you've ever wondered why most buildings don't have 13th floors, you'll find out when you lead your scared sweetie and ghoulish gang through the unlucky ward of this 13th Floor. As you travel the gauntlet of gory corpses, apparitions come and go through the fog and creepy characters lurk around each narrow twist and turn. The 13th floor keeps top-quality frightfulness by hiring professional makeup artists and creating sets that rival even those of the most terrifying Hollywood movies, such as Computer Beach Party (click here to hear more about the 13th Floor's methods in its feature on the Travel Channel). Then, step into the horrific hillbilly manor of Blood Shed. The decrepit farmhouse paints a graphic scene of one family's sick and twisted way of life. Check out the horror throughout the dark yard and in the affectionately named "blood shed."
Located in the heart of Denver, both murderous dens are open nearly every night in October, from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 7 p.m. to midnight on Fridays and Saturdays. There is a parking lot on the east side of the building, and children under the age of 14 must be accompanied by an adult.
