Once through the outdoor graveyard, patrons set tentative toes inside a sprawling web of surprises designed to jump-start adrenaline and cure hiccups. The haunted house is staged inside a historic movie theater constructed in the 1930s and beckons visitors to cautiously wind through scenes re-created from popular horror movies such as Silent Hill, Saw, and Weekend at Bernie's 2. Once inside the gruesome lair, adventurers are free to wander around until closing time or for all eternity, whichever comes first.
6th Street Massacre
Located on notoriously twisted Route 66, a derelict movie theater has become the stomping grounds of the McKill family—a criminally insane brood with a predilection for torture and murder. The site is filled with horrific vignettes: piles of human skulls, walls stained with gory handprints, and funerals attended by the dead.
Down the theater's dilapidated halls specters stalk interlopers, awaiting the right moment to jump out and shock—but never touch—their prey. The location has appeared on the Biography Channel’s My Ghost Story, where numerous suspected apparitions were caught in the act.
