A haunted house is born from a past tragedy, be it a grisly murder, a mysterious disappearance, or a long-forgotten bologna sandwich buried beneath the floorboards. Sign on for a spooky tour of an eerily cursed residence with today's Groupon: for $39, you get two VIP Fast Pass tickets to The House of Shock (a $100 value).

For almost 20 years, The House of Shock has transformed the art of haunting into a month-long interactive, multimedia scare fest. VIP guests garner front-of-the-line access to a 25-minute excursion through creepy chambers rattled with unspeakable horrors and grizzled delicatessen workers. The horror commences with a pyrotechnic showcase performed on a castle-like stage before guests stagger through the graveyard and morgue where the dead may have arrived a trifle early. During the interactive horror show, actors slither past, spilling slime and stage blood in their wake as the sounds of chainsaws sends adrenaline levels soaring in the bloody butcher shop. The blood-curdling climax takes place in the controversial satanic chapel where visitors sweat beside demonic hell fires and a traditional pitchfork fondue party.

Before setting foot within the haunted house, a host of outdoor, Halloween-themed entertainment awaits—including a live-music stage, freak show, and scarecrow speed-dating events. Although not included in the price of this Groupon, guests may calm their quivering nerves with libations at the full bar, or eats at the original Hell’s Kitchen. Groupon holders looking to brave the heinous hallways of The House of Shock should be sure to redeem their tickets by 10 p.m.

The House of Shock

For the last 20 years, satanic cults, monsters, and the undead have been congregating at The House of Shock to perform unspeakable horrors in the name of Halloween. Envisioned by a crack team of fright experts, including Pantera frontman Phil Anselmo, this seasonal haunt has been featured in the Travel Channel's Halloween's Most Extreme, Rolling Stone, Maxim, and Top Haunts magazine's list of the Top 13 Haunts nationwide. The house's exhibits are so scary that they've caused some extreme reactions. Allegedly, one patron's heart stopped beating. After she was resuscitated and rushed to the hospital, it was determined she had technically been dead for a short period.

As a live metal band strikes its first ominous chords, the fright fest kicks off with a nightly horror show of pyrotechnics, death metal, live stunts, and masochists. Adrenaline levels soar as courageous guests tiptoe through the coffins, ornate gravestones, and crumbling mausoleums of an ancient graveyard. The house's professional actors don't just slink by waving chainsaws and body parts—they tear apart bodies and scare the dickens out of guests who brave the interactive horrors of a funeral parlor, a morgue, and a butcher shop's dreadfully rotten cuts of beef. The adventure reaches terrifying new heights in a controversial satanic church, where flickering candles and hellfire cast eerie shadows on demonic worshipers and their torture victims. The onsite Hell's Kitchen churns out thematic eats and adult beverages to help frightened guests regain their senses before they revert to a mental world where the only conflict is over which Teletubby wore it best.
