Located at the South Florida Fairgrounds in West Palm Beach, we have ACRES of scares and plenty of parking. Be sure to “friend us” on Facebook for updates on when the dead will walk again!

***2017 HAUNTS***

This is not another Hallucination, you have been admitted to the Scharnhorst Mental Asylum, nicknamed “The Cuckoo’s Nest” by the locals. The Cuckoo’s Nest is a Hospital for the criminally insane, full of the most violent and demented offenders. But beware, the staff has been slaughtered and lobotomized killers and violent sociopaths now roam the halls. No one is safe. Solitary confinement, straight jackets, electroshock therapy have only made the Homicidal Maniacs angry and out for revenge.

Concerned whispers rapidly transform to fervent screams of accusation as hysteria engulfs a town crumbling under the threat of witchcraft. Friends, neighbors, family members - no one is safe from persecution. Each night brings a new trial followed immediately by an execution, a death which fails to quell the insatiable lust for answers among the townsfolk. Leaving your hundredth trial, you trudge the dimly lit cobblestone streets when you are suddenly flanked by members of the occult and presented with a proposition: protection for defection.

During the late 19th century while the industrial revolution was in full swing, many electrical and medical advances were taking place. At the forefront of this new alchemy was Dr. Victor Frankenstein. As Victor thought of himself as the modern Prometheus he would stop at nothing to achieve the forbidden dark art of necromancy. The paradox of life and death consumed the doctor and his works reflected this, as he scoured the local cemeteries for fresh cadavers. While his impatience grew to find the perfect specimen, the Dr. became more bold and would scout the local taverns and social events hoping to find the perfect individual or… part of one to further his dark obsession. The end result of the good doctors ambitions turned out to be more sinister than anyone could have imagined.

Many people fantasize of making it big: like being a big star in a glitzy motion picture or a model in a glamour magazine… it is, after all, the stuff dreams are made of. But when a sadistic serial killer lures people into his gruesome lair with promises of wealth and fame - those dreams become a nightmare. Are you ready for your close up?


After a deadly virus destroys humanity, causing the collapse of civilization as we know it, survivors find refuge on a military base. The wasteland is a stark post- apocalyptic landscape where mutants terrorize the survivors.

Used car salesman and serial con man John Dotty aka "Dots" is on the run again. This time for fronting stolen goods for the mob. With bounty on his life and his face is on every wanted posted from here to Alaska, he's gotta change his face - and fast. So he dons a new disguise: "Dots" the clown and gathers every Freak in town to opens his own Freakshow and doing what he does best: ripping people off. Email Haunt Owner
