Blood Manor Haunted House
Now in its seventh year, Blood Manor has been one of the most consistently chilling haunted houses in the city, and this time around is no exception. There are seven new environments that will test your tolerance for terror, from the “Graveyard of the Doomed” to the “Cabaret of Death.” Coulrophobics, keep away from the “killer klowns,” and everyone else, stay out of Hannibal’s Kitchen (you do not
want to be there for dinner). After meeting the manor’s insane inhabitants, finish the terror trek at the Zombie Apocalypse. Pick up tickets here
for $25 and get ready for a night of madness and mayhem.
