ACRES MANOR HAUNTED MANSION
There was said to be an old man who lived in the famous Acres Manor on top of the hill. Legend had it that he kept all of his children in the Manor basement. Sometimes he would send food down… sometimes he would forget. It was not until the old man made the mistake of venturing down into the basement one night, forgetful of its inhabitants. The police say his body was never found, and after knowing how much those… children, were fed down there, we understand why. But the manor is now their turf. Their new basement of darkness, and they’ll welcome you with open arms. And open mouths with lots of sharp incisors
Step into the red colored barn house and discover the real animalistic doings that go on inside. A grisly sight to behold, you will be gasping for air due to the foul stench of the leftover bodies and will be… clamoring to escape as you discover that the slaughterhouse boss is still lurking about. So get out or become next on the menu. You could be fed to the hogs, or hung from the ceiling. Either way, you better run out of this barn house. Because you are the only cattle the boss will see.
Venture into Freakshow. A humiliated make-up artist at the carnival was fed up with people criticizing his work. He decided to turn the whole carnival upside down. He got his hands on some very awful chemicals. Not deadly, but morbid nonetheless. He locked everyone in and released the toxins into the atmosphere, turning everyone into wide-eyed laughing psychopaths. Their teeth and smiles grotesquely enlarged, their eyes bloodshot red and yellow, and their bodies amazingly slender and disgusting now. The former carnies now roam the abandoned carnival grounds. And we have opened it back up for you to see. Can you hear the maniacal laughter in the distance? It is closer than you think.
