Burn baby burn! The Mortuary Haunted House in NOLA opens on September 24.
Looking for a Halloween tradition that will petrify you? Don’t miss the city’s most popular self-guided, dark attraction. We’re talking about one of NOLA’s well-known haunted houses, “The Mortuary.” This blood-curdling spectacle opened its doors in 2007 and has been scaring locals and tourists ever since.
Not convinced yet? It’s even been featured by the Travel Channel as one of America’s Scariest Attractions. The Mortuary is located on a property surrounded by the hair-rising NOLA graveyards known as “The Cities of the Dead.”
This year’s legend is “The House That Fear Built.”
“In some places, fear feeds and grows…and lingers. One such place is the Mortuary. 150 years ago, a man-turned-monster named Ravencroft, mortician by trade, began to tinker with the primal forces of the universe with vampiric blood, seeding the terror of the victims of his unholy experiments in his search for eternal life into the very walls of the basement to the house he called his own. As is the way with madmen, insane acolytes hearing whispers from dark communions continued Ravencroft’s experiments, and where Ravencroft’s seed blossomed, the seeds of the experiments in fear perpetrated by the dark society of mass murderers known as The Collector’s bloomed! Within the bloody, beating heart of New Orleans, on the edge of the City of the Dead, fear was cultivated and fed and allowed to fester..building a place for itself… a house…a home…,” you can read on their website.
Do you dare enter the house? Will you survive? The experience has state-of-the-art animatronics, theatrical sets, movie-quality makeup, over-the-top special effects, unusual themes, and details that will make this the most terrifying night of your life.
Are you ready to see what hell has unleashed? Don’t miss it!
