Well the Halloween season will be going full steam ahead with the opening of most of the local haunted attractions this weekend! Most (if not all) of your favorite haunted attractions will open this weekend. In fact, some attractions were even open LAST weekend.
LAST WEEKEND’S OPENINGS – WOLF CREEK HAUNTED FOREST
One of the haunts that opened last weekend was Wolf Creek Haunted Forest in Shepherdsville, KY. Wolf Creek returned last weekend with a killer start to the season. This year, Wolf Creek actually featured 2 separate haunts in one location for one price! The new attraction at Wolf Creek is called Project Alpha. Project Alpha is centered around a zombie theme/infection theme. So far we’ve heard great things. They are open again this weekend and every weekend through October! You will even get your chance to win $10,000 playing the Haunted Code!
OPENING THIS WEEKEND – DANGER RUN THE MOST FUN YOU’VE EVER HAD IN YOUR CAR!
This weekend, one of the many attractions to open includes the Danger Run. For those of you that don’t know, the Danger Run is a scavenger hunt style game you play in your car where you will solve clues to find haunted houses which are included with your admission. The Danger Run is a unique, fun attraction that is the only attraction of its kind any where in the world right here in Louisville! Even if puzzles are your thing, the Danger Run gets you admission into TWO $20 haunts ($40 total value) with your $16.99 admission. That alone is more than double the cost of your ticket! It’s like a Groupon deal for haunts, but only better because you get the adventure game with it! You also get free food and free gas! It is definitely worth checking out!

THE ASYLUM HAUNTED SCREAM PARK
Also opening this weekend is the ENORMOUS Asylum Haunted Scream Park at Paintball Asylum. Paintball Asylum has featured an extremely popular haunt called Darkness Falls. This year they have expanded to 3 more attractions all at that single location! It features two primary haunted trails: Darkness Falls and Zombie City. The other attractions include Zombie Hunting, a paintball arcade with real live…err…dead zombies and the Carnivale of Lost Souls. It is an enormous attraction packed full of scares and fun.
HAUNTED NETWORK HAUNTS
In addition, the Haunted Network will be opening their haunts this weekend as well! Many regard the Haunted Network to have some of the best haunts in the area. Their haunts include the Industrial Terrorplex in Jeffersonville and Haunted Hotel in downtown Louisville. Industrial Terrorplex has undergone a MASSIVE overhaul and features 2 BRAND NEW attractions! The two new haunts at the Terrorplex are CarnEVIL 3D and Infected. From what we’ve seen, both should be incredible haunts. And then of course let’s not forget the legendary Industrial Nightmare and Dementions. Of course last be FAR from least is the Haunted Hotel. Haunted Hotel has been deemed one of the best haunts in the country and is one of the longest standing haunts in Louisville. It’s a scary attraction you don’t want to miss! You could even win $10,000 playing the Haunted Code!
NIGHTMARE FOREST HAUNTED TRAIL
Then, Nightmare Forest is also opening this weekend! Nightmare Forest has been in the Ville for MANY MANY years and is widely considered to be one of the best haunted trails in the area. It too features multiple attractions all in one location featuring a secondary haunt called the Trail of Terror and NEW for 2011 is the Watch-N-DIE…I mean DrIvE-in. We’ve been told that the event is going to be better than it has ever been so we will have quite a show in store for us. If you like outdoor attractions, you won’t want to miss it!
THE DEVIL’S ATTIC HAUNTED HOUSE
Another BIG opening this weekend is the Devil’s Attic. The Devil’s Attic was new in 2010 and for 2011 they have moved to an ENORMOUS, scary new building near downtown Louisville. This is a haunt that we have had the privilege to visit and interview. Upon our visit, we got to walk through the attraction and get a firsthand look at what you will get to see at the Devil’s Attic and let us tell you…it is an INCREDIBLE haunt. Great attention to detail, amazing scenery, and a very scary ambiance. This is an attraction you’ll want to hit this season. You can even sign-up to win a hearse! Devil’s Attic’s preview will be posted soon!
FEAR FAIR HAUNTED HOUSE
Another haunt that we were privileged enough to visit recently is Fear Fair. Fear Fair is a haunt that is about an hour north of Louisville, but it is well worth the drive! Fear Fair is easily one of the regions top haunts. With film quality sets and in your face actors, this was a jaw-dropping haunt. While we were there for an interview and preview for you, we will be jumping in our car again later this season to go check it out again while it is running. Amazing enough, this is even a charity haunt! All the proceeds goes the the Jaycees! Who’d a thought such an incredible haunt would be a charity event. If you have time, go see this one!
OTHER GREAT LOCAL HAUNTS – PSYCHOMANIA
Lastly, some of the other great local attractions opening this weekend include Psychomania Haunted House in Clarksville! Psychomania is the ONLY haunted house that is located in an old, abandoned theater. It is an ENORMOUS attraction that has an incredible attention to detail, tons of actors, and scares around every corner. You can even get your tickets to this attraction right here on LouisvilleHalloween.com! You can also get tickets for Terror at the Fun Farm in Lanesville AND NEW THIS YEAR Grim Tales presented by the Haunted Yard.
GRIM TALES HAUNTED HOUSE
Grim Tales is a brand new attraction in Middletown that is being presented by the Haunted Yard. The Haunted Yard has been a Halloween staple in the Louisville area for over 20 years! It was a FREE yard haunt in Louisville and it was sooo much more than just a yard haunt. It was a haunted experience! If the Haunted Yard gives us any inclination what to expect at this haunt then it will be one incredible attraction.
