Stillwell Manor

Stillwell Manor Logo

Summary:

Stillwell Manor is an old-school haunt with three differently-themed attractions under one roof for one low price!

Upon General Stillwell’s return from the ravages of war, he found that ghosts of his past have taken over his home and are haunting the remaining staff and family. Journey through the mansion and grounds lost in time for over 140 years and face the wrath of the tortured souls that are trapped in time.

If you survive the journey through the Manor, you will venture into “Tantibus” and see your “Nightmares” up close and personal. Who said nightmares only happen while you sleep? You can only pray that you’re dreaming and wake up, someday.

Stillwell's newest attraction, "Forsaken" offers an optional touch upgrade through the remnants of Isabelle's freak show and down into the tunnels where "The Doctor" resides... Are you brave enough to discover the horrors that lie in wait for you?

Journey through over 30,000 sq ft of fears and frights. If you dare!

** Warning – we are not responsible for any ghosts that tag along back to your home but please tell them to come back to the manor when they are done with you. We always lose a couple every year.

Hanna Haunted Acres

7323 East Hanna Avenue, Indianapolis, IN 46239

Hanna Haunted Acres Logo

Summary:

HANNA HAUNTED HAYRIDE – OUR SIGNATURE ATTRACTION

The Haunted Hayride is a crown achievement at Hanna Haunted Acres. You will discover that it is more than just a hayride through the woods. It is a well paced roller coaster cruising through the dour woods with all possible nightmarish creatures imaginable lurking about. Forced to keep at the pace of the tractor pulling your wagon, you will have no choice but to endure the malicious beasts as they step into the light for your terror. Some will follow you, others will try to take you back to the woods with them, but rest assured, all of them will make sure you scream like a child.

PANDEMIC

A 747 airliner has just crash landed into the Indy cornfields. Your mission is to investigate the crash and extract anything of high value. We are receiving reports that there was a very dangerous virus called Saber being carried onboard. Based upon the briefings, this virus is made to turn human beings into animals, but the tests were failures, resulting in subjects remaining human but growing horrendous, animalistic features such as sharp incisors, long claws, heightened length and strength, and even spikes from the cranium… this just in: we have just received word that there have been numerous spottings of fast moving creatures in the cornfields near the crash. We will be sending you in with the cavalry.

BLOOD BARN

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.

FREAKSHOW

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.

OUTBREAK

Get ready to have the the toxicity charts go through the roof as you navigate your way through the slick, grisly, and grimy hallways of the Outbreak, a haunt so notorious and foul that even the most hardened haunt-goers think twice about entering. Zombies are pitiful creatures but they are not to be trifled with if encountered in Outbreak. They want your flesh and blood and will stop at nothing to retrieve it. Hence, you should move quickly, since the undead have an uncanny ability to seek out their food no matter what.

DESCENSION

Hanna is proud to open Descension, a haunt so pitch black, it’ll make your skin crawl just to walk through. Navigate through the underground tunnel, now free to venture into, and realize that you are not alone down there, and that there are no bodies left over. Whoever was left down there, is now a what instead of a who. Use your senses to guide your way through, but you never know how close something might be in front of you. Even with your eyes open.

Fear Fair

800 A Avenue East, Seymour, IN 47274

Fear Fair Logo

Summary:

Rockford Riot:
Within Rockford Correctional Facility's reinforced walls lives some of the most demented inmates in the country. With no chance of release, these prisoners are the perfect target for human experimentation, exploitation, and cruelty at the hands of the guards. When enough is finally enough, the prisoners riot and seize control of the prison. It's their world now, and they make the rules. Depravity meets depravity here, and they'd love to meet you too.

New in 2021, Ramses' Wrath:
Upon his death, the body and soul of Ramses II, the greatest of Egypt's pharaohs, was sealed away to rest forevermore. But when archeologists hungry for fame, glory, and gold unearth the pharaoh's final resting place, they awaken his wrath. The curses carved into the stone and uttered lifetimes ago have come to life, and none who enter his sacred tomb shall be spared.

Leveau's Curse:
New Orleans has always been known for its lively atmosphere, but everything is not always as it seems. It's been said that here, the dead don't ever truly die, and the residents whisper of disappearances, human sacrifice, and strange screams that come from the swamp at night. Dark secrets and ancient magic lie in wait behind every corner. Leave an offering for the spirits, beg for their protection, and enter their world at your own risk.

Ancient Evil:
The bones of kings and paupers, sinners and saints alike line the hallowed halls of this ancient catacomb, and within dwells a dark cult of death, decay, and corruption. Exiles roam these chambers, mindless and feral from the cult's constant torment. What evil stirs the bones within this crypt, and to what atrocity do these cultists pray? The answers lie within the darkest depths of the tomb.

Check their ticketing page for updated prices for each of Fear Fair's special events.
