Due to the large number of ghosts they can hold, haunted houses are consistently scarier than cursed sleeping bags, possessed lean-tos, and ectoplasmic studio apartments. Walk through a tortured soul abode with today's Groupon: for $10, you get one general-admission ticket (a $20 value) to Nightmare's Gate Haunted House, located in Douglasville. This deal expires on October 31, 2010. City, county, state, and federal fire, EMS, and law enforcement personnel, as well as members of the military, are always admitted free of charge.
Nightmare's Gate Haunted House is not a house; it is, in fact, a haunted prison. Your visit will let you become one of the newly incarcerated at Brasky State Prison, which is the first step to discovering the gruesome, horrific secrets festering within. During its long, sordid history, the Brasky State Prison has been home to the state's most infamous, monstrous prisoners. Fear voyagers will find the prison to be rife with frightening twists and turns, as every step takes them past menacing creatures, dimly lit rooms, and zombie singing-telegram messengers. Co-managed by the former director of Six Flags Over Georgia's 2010 Haunted House, Nightmare's Gate is run with professional expertise. Although the penitentiary vibe is sure to feel creepy and disturbing, this attraction is free of nudity, cursing, or any sexual content that may offend visitors. The haunted house is not recommended for those that are pregnant, have back or heart problems, or that have determined “legally dead” by the FDA.
