House of Trepidation
Dr. Belle was Traveling the East Coast with his beloved wife. Eventually, they drifted to Indianapolis. Then House of Trepidation, Purgatory, and Crossroads of Carnage was born. These now haunted settings are certainly anything but ordinary. Each of these 3 spaces played an important role in allowing Belle’s experiments to take place. When you are approaching the front entrance of Trepidation, it’s no secret that an uncomforting feeling can be felt and heard. You will suddenly feel as if you are amongst the company of many strangers. Although as you look around high and low they can’t be seen, only heard. While you are a guest at Trepidation, please be cautious as the sinister demons are with you. They are watching from behind the walls. They can be seen overhead and sometimes from below. Always make certain not to invade their space as they will be disturbed and restless with visitors…

Crossroads of Carnage
At House of Trepidation we offer 3 indoor attractions, and Crossroads of Carnage is in between Trepidation and Purgatory. Crossroads of Carnage is an intense labyrinth entanglement of dark hallways and corridors. This forsaken building is home to the same paths that many of Dr. Belle’s patients traveled. A journey here will take you through the scream filled dark rooms where the restless and uneasy spirits were left behind. The Crossroads of Carnage is full of drifting souls and spirits of many of Belle’s lifeless patients that walked in but never walked out. As a visitor, plan to be extremely uneasy as you witness the crypts that hold thousands of demented demons and ghosts. Be sure to always watch your left side and do everything you can to stick together, especially in the dark…

Purgatory is 1 of 3 Haunted attractions at House of Trepidation. During your visit, you will quickly learn the evolution of Dr. Belle’s history. Purgatory is the space that quickly became a key component to Dr. Belle and his practice. He would use Crossroads of Carnage to dispose of the bodies, and the souls would quickly make Purgatory their new found home. These voices are the result of thousands of people who were treated by Dr. Belle. They come from all over the Midwest and East Coast, each telling a different story. Due to his lack of incumbency and respect for human life, he likely has coordinated the largest mass killing to have taken place in Indianapolis. No matter what the reason, if you happen to converge with Belle, NEVER turn your back…
