Haunted Hotel

The Haunted Hotel is a haunted house that has called Louisville, KY home for over 20 years. The Haunted Hotel starts out with an elevator that takes you on a nightmarish ride to the 13th floor. On your way, a ghoul comes out of the wall and scares you into the haunted house. The Haunted Hotel is known for its extreme scares, blood curdling effects, and detailed scenery. One year, The Haunted Hotel even featured a suicide room where a guy fired a shot gun into his mouth and splattered his brains on the wall! Definitely one of the goriest haunts in the Ville and one of the top haunted houses in the city. This year, the haunt is under new ownership with all new gruesome scenes! Can’t wait to see what Haunted Hotel has in-store this Halloween season!

    I have a question do the actors and actresses touch you during the experience

  2. Tracey says:

    I try to visit at least 3 haunted houses a year and I have to say that this is the best I have seen in the Kentucky/southern Indiana area! The scare tactics were great and the actors were excellent! I loved that they don’t put you with a bunch of other people! The wait is long but other than that I don’t think this this place can be beat! Well worth the money!

  3. Armando Luna says:

    Haunted hotel is defiently the best place to go to get an awesome scare ! For one very low price you get to go through a crazy check in, a very scary hellavator ride and explore the scariest hotel i kentucky! I higly advise you to check this haunt out this haunting season!

  4. Harley Sweet says:

    Amazing!!! The best haunt I have been to! The actors were fantastic all in all incredible!

    If I had to sum up the haunted hotel in one word it would be, AMAZING. This place is truly second to none. I and three friends went this past weekend on Saturday October 5, and if I was to say it rained that would be an understatement, many streets were shut down due to flooding so we had to take our boat just to get there (LOL just kidding, but it did take us longer to arrive than expected.)

    Once inside this seemingly small haunted attraction we were trapped. Every actor in this place from the creepy bell hop guy you first encounter to the chainsaw wielding freaks outside will poke and prod until you give them the reaction they want from you. The actors here can and will touch you, but it only makes your experience at the haunted hotel that much better.
    If you are only planning on only going to one or two haunted attractions this year, this is a must see and well worth the money.

    this was my FIRST haunted house EVER and im from Indianapolis, IN. Back in 2010 I drove to Louisville just to get away for the day/night and found this haunted hotel… and I let them know ive never been to any one before. BEST TIME OF MY LIFE. Im thinking about going again this year (2013) soon!

  8. Nathan S. says:

    Best haunt I have ever been to! Usually I can tell where the characters wii make their entrance but this place kept me guessing. It’s short but kept me entertained/spooked all the way til the end. Loved it and will be returning next year =)

  9. Angie *Gypsy* says:

    Amazing time at this place. Being very desensitized after years of exposure to horror movies, got to and working at haunted houses and such, was quite awesome to go into a haunt that actually got a few scares out of me. The actors, the scenery, the props.. All just excellent. My fiance and I drove two hours to go to this haunt, from Bloomington, IN to Louisville, IN, and it was worth it. We’ve been to so many haunts in the past, but this is one of the few we will add to the repeat visit list.

  10. Lauren K. says:

    Went to the Haunted Hotel last night and had a blast! Loved all the chainsaw weilding guys in masks, especially the clowns! If you don’t like to be touched, this isn’t the haunt for you, but if you really want a full, creepy experience with all the uncomfortable touching that goes with it…this has it! They don’t discriminate who they touch, men and women…they don’t care. I’ve never been to a haunted house that actually hit you with the chainsaw, but they do and it’s great! It’s unexpected and totally freaked me out, and I don’t get scared that easily! A must go for the Halloween lover!! :)

  11. Vamp Kitti says:

    First Id like to say to the person that went through a “haunt” with injuries and then complain about it afterwards is a little ridiculous. I know they wanted to have some fun but your health and safety shouldve come first and I had NO ONE push me when I went through and the touching was just that TOUCHING.

    Now to my review:
    My husband and I have been going to haunted hotel for years and compared to previous years these guys and gals have stepped up their game. It was AMAZING. From the creepy greater guy at the beginning that gets up close in your personal space, kind of turned me on a little, to the spider money guy in the elevator that scared me FOUR times before I left to the new scenery, the sounds, the lights, the gun fire, the grabbing EVERYTHING was stepped up a mighty notch or two, or three , or four. I highly enjoyed going to this haunt this year and am recommending it to EVERYONE to go see. We went on a thursday (slow night) and the actors performed as if it was a busy saturday night. From beginning to end this haunt was much improved and I am hoping to make it back again before the end of the season. It was that good in my opinion. Thank you guys and ghouls for making my Thursday night ROCK.

  12. LJ says:

    I don’t usually do “scary.” I’ve not been to a haunted house since I was a kid. But I screamed bloody murder for the duration of our “stay” and had an absolute blast! I was very glad that I decided to brave it… and survived. The other members of our group also enjoyed themselves. One – a fan of haunted houses – said he hadn’t been that freaked out in a haunted house in years.

    The actors were great – especially the Innkeeper at the start. Brilliant!

    I’ve seen some of the reviews criticizing the touching, however, no one in our group had any issues. I was concerned about it myself, but did not find anything inappropriate or overly aggressive.

    You do get chased, so be prepared to do some running. (Hey, you can skip your daily workout if you’re planning a trip to the Haunted Hotel that day. Bonus!)

    Well done! Bravo to the actors! Would absolutely recommend. Just don’t piss off the Innkeeper when he’s looking for the key. He’s just trying to help you out, after all.

  13. samantha says:

    Went on Sunday and we were aware of touching. Had a person in the group who had just had surgery and still was told only light touching. Touching part didn’t bother us but the pushing and shoving of that person was not light touching. This place is ridiculous and to come out of a haunted house with an injured person was certainly beyond ridiculous.

  14. Seth says:

    I thought the Hotel was awesome!!! I see they’ve had some controversial reviews below…… i think those have to be bogus. i went and loved it. My whole group of(5 of us) had a great time. They told us there would be touching before we entered. if you’re not down then don’t go. It’s stupid to go into some place knowing what they’re going to do and then complain later. It’s def not a haunted house for kids. If you’re bringing a younger kid through any haunted house you’ve prob got issues in my book. Any-who they did an amazing job! Great actors, and the actors working the line were fun! they made me jump and haunted houses usually don’t bother me. Some of the scenes didn’t make sense(the way the actors looked compared to their scenes) but they still got me so I’ll over look it!! 10 Pumpkins in my book. WAY BETTER THAN THE LAST FEW YEARS!!!

  15. baber says:

    how long is this thing ?

  16. Amanda says:

    By far one of the best haunted houses in ky. I’ve been n the past but this yr was much better than before! I was skeptical about the actors touching you but it made the experience that much more intense n scary! I go to ALOT of haunted house every yr but this is my favorite so far! Finally a place using real actors really trying to scare u instead of props and animatronics!

  17. Lexington Alex says:

    You can tell the review below really doesn’t show any merit. Our group has been through this house twice this year already. We come from Lexington multiple times per year and have never ever experienced anything like the below review… The Haunted Hotel is amazing and we love it!!! The bellhop in the front is intense and awesome. Keep up the good work Hotel and these fake reviews will drown out.

  18. BryanxEdge says:

    Went through last night. Holy crap. All I have to say. The intensity starts as soon as the door slides open and doesn’t let up until you get back in your car. The element of touch takes things to a whole new level as well. If you haven’t gone yet, be forewarned; you’re probably gonna do some sprinting in the maze. At least I did. Will definitely make a second trip.

  19. Haunt Group Reviews _ chris says:

    What an amazing place! From the time you buy a ticket to the time you leave the fun never stops! Some of the best actors i have experienced in a long time. Hotel has more intensity than ever and the changes are great. Took us around 20 minutes to get through the haunt and the line moved very well. Haunt seemed organized with friendly staff. Definitely a staple to this area and you can see why it’s always one of the best. Kudos to you Haunted Hotel. We will see you again for the Lights Out tour on Nov 2!!! Can’t Wait!! 9.5/10 rating (9 pumpkins)

  20. Paul says:

    On of the best in Louisville. i really enjoyed it, had pretty good actors with nice props and scenes. The Elevator scene was very creative and it got a lot of scares. i give it a 7 out of 10

  21. tim says:

    By far the best haunted house of the year give it ten out of ten

  22. Brayden says:

    Went to Haunted Hotel on Saturday and it was, in a word, INTENSE! I go to a lot of haunted houses and I usually don’t feel threatened by the actors but at Hotel, I was grabbed by someone in the butcher room and thrown against a wall while at the same time, a heavy hammer hit the wall next to my head! It only got better from there and by the time it ended, my friends and I were running out the exit. The entire cast was incredible and it’s one haunt you shouldn’t miss!

  23. Richard says:

    The person below is ridiculous. Went at 11pm and the show was still full force. Really scary and had my sister screaming her pants off.

  24. bobby says:

    I went last weekend and I was really disappointed. They put us with people we didn’t know and they ran through it, this through off the actors timing. Some of that wasn’t there fault but I still think it was weak.

  25. Lorri says:

    Me & 4 of my friends went last night (9/28/12) and it was totally awesome…we were scared to death and screamed all the way through. This is the second haunted attraction we’ve been to this season and this one is scarier then the one we went to a couple of weeks ago. We LOVED it and had an AWESOME time!!!!! The actors did a GREAT job in scaring the hell out of us all!!!!!

  26. Katie Barnes says:

    I was really excited about going to the haunted hotel last sat because of new owners, even had friends come stay from out of town for the ‘haunt night’ was very disappointed, the actors seemed tired or not in the mood and we didn’t go that late, the change was good, but I expected more after the whole hype about the `new hotel` I enjoyed seeing new scenes but that was about it. Don’t think I will visit the hotel again which i am sadened to say as it been my favorite haunt for so long

  27. Rebecca says:

    I loved it! Having worked in the haunt industry for a few years, I don’t usually scare anymore, but I jumped a couple of times in the Hotel. From the first monologue to the last chainsaw, this haunt was entertaining, detailed, and fun.

    Props to the guys in the elevator. They were fun.

    I would definitely go again, if it weren’t such a long drive from Lexington.

  28. Amber says:

    Hotel sucked!! Actors weren’t even scary, it was so much better last year :(

  29. Michele says:

    The haunted hotel was way better this yr then,last yr. I loved the touchn the actors did it gave me chills! Good job haunted hotel!

  30. deuce says:

    The new attractions this year made it even better !!

  31. Kolton Sneed says:

    Haunted hotel was good last year, but this year is going to be the best yet

  32. krazy says:

    i give it a 10 a damn 10

  33. Kristen says:

    I went to Haunted Hotel last night (10/13/11) at about 9 PM. I’m sad to say that I was a little disappointed with their show this year. I have been to Haunted Hotel 3 times over the last 2 years. This visit, it seemed that their actors timing was off. They were not very intense. My favorite scene of the haunt, the elevator, was not functioning properly. A lot of the mechanics of the haunt were exposed (speakers, sensors, etc) I also thought the haunt was a little brighter than it should have been, which may have been the reason their speakers and sensors were exposed. Their props, as always were excellent. The detail in the sets is very good. Their soundtrack is unique, but could have been a little louder. The price is comparable to other haunts in the area, take advantage of the coupon available. I was startled a number of times, this visit just wasn’t as good as previous trips to Haunted Hotel. This may be because it was a Thursday night, which is usually an off night for most haunted attractions. 6 out of 10.

  34. Tman says:

    Great haunt. Ran into people from Florida that said go. We have none in our state to speak of. The intensity is off the chain and timing is great. Add some crazy a$s actors and this place rocks. How come your rate chart says 10 but you can only rate 5

  35. David says:

    This was a fun haunt last year, the christmas scene was priceless!
    I heard a lot of people say this was the best haunt in Louisville, maybe I went on an off night or something but it was good, but I wouldn’t say the best.
    Still a great haunt, and I’m looking forward to it this year.

  36. bobforhours says:

    Ya Kristen you are right never knew what you was walking into, one room after the next…I never felt that I left the first room….If every haunt is turning the corner and not knowing where the hell your at until the non scary guyy/gal jumps out at you then hello do something about it!!! Don’t be afraid to change things around…

  37. Kristen W. says:

    Went to the Haunted Hotel Thursday night. Overall I thought the haunt was very good. Every scene was FULL of things to look at, which kept me from noticing any actors hidden in the rooms, until they jumped out. I thought the scenes were very creative, and you never really knew what you were walking into next. The sets were decorated very appropriately. The actors were intense and costumes and make-up were good. I thought that this haunt was a little heavy in the chainsaw area and the chainsaw carrying actors were relentless. I also never really jumped much, but this may have had something to do with my position within my group. Overall a great haunt that pays special attention to detail!

  38. Nora says:

    Haunted Hotel was excellent this year. It had been almost completely changed from last year. A lot of new additions. The maze at the end was changed and added some fun house designs to it. The shotgun suicide was not there but the cast still delivers startles all throughout the haunt. We were going to skip the hotel this year because last year it was pretty much the same as the year before, but we decided since we were in the area to stop in and so glad we did! Compared to the other haunts I have been to in the area they have some of the most aggressive characters around.
