Wavery Hills Tuberculosis Sanatorium

One of America's most haunted places is located in Louisville at the Waverly Hills Tuberculosis Sanatorium.  In the 1900's Louisville was hit extremely hard with the disease called Tuberculosis or as it was refered to back then, "White Death".  With Louisville being built on such a low, swampy area  it made the disease easier to spread.  In 1910 a hospital was built to help try and control the population of death and help control the amount of people who were infected.  The original hospital became quickly overcrowded and in 1924 a new building called Waverly Hills was built. 

It is said that many of the patients that survived both the horrifying disease and the and even more horrible treatments left through the front doors.  The majority of the patients that died left though what was called the "Body Chute" The doctors did not want the other patients seeing the dead, lifeless bodies being carried through the front door. They were afraid it would mess with their minds and hurt the patients recovery time.  By the 1930's the disease had almost past and the hospital became to slow down.  In 1961The hospital closed down for good and re-opened as the Woodhaven Geriatrics Santarium.  There were many reports that during its time as a Santarium the older patients were not treated fairly. 

Today the building is barely standing.  It has been used for the homeless, young teens use as a shelter or just a place to hang out in.  There have been hundreds of reports of paranormal activity and unexplained activity even to this day.  There is no wonder that the building that has seen so much horror and pain over all these years would have a few ghostly sprits left behind.

 

 


Sandyland Acres Haunted Hayride (Petersburg, KY)

Located in the small town of Petersburg Kentucky is Sandyland Acres Haunted Hayride. While most hayrides take place on dirt paths, Sandyland Acres is made of well, sand. This is a benefit since the thick sand sucks up water when there is a big storm. The main people that are behind Sandyland Acres are Gene and Debra Web. Before they were running a haunted hayride they were attending horror conventions all over the United States.

One fateful night they visited a nearby hayride and a thought came them. They already have the equipment and land so they might as well create there own haunted hayride in their small town. It was a risk, but it paid off big time. While this will be its third year of operation, you would never know that by the quality of  the hayride.

Sandyland Acres consists of mostly recreations of horror movie favorites such as Halloween, Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Saw, Friday The 13th and many others. While this may sound typical for a haunt, it isn’t since the frightening scenes you’ll experience are very convincing to the point where you feel like you’re part of the movie. Custom-made masks are used for characters such as Michael Myers and Predator while the sets almost perfectly resemble their movie counterparts.

The future is bright for Sandyland Acres since they are doing everything right that many haunts that have been around for much longer are doing wrong. They constantly advertise through signs, festivals, parades, sponsors and even cross promote with a group of haunts called Cincy Haunts (www.cincyhaunts.com). This is a group of haunts that are located in or near Cincinnati that promote each other while providing detailed information. Plus they even have a bus tour and even give away prizes for people participating. To put it simply. This is a haunt ran by great people that are striving to create a frightening experience for those brave enough to ride their frightening hayride.


USS Nightmare (Newport, KY)
 
One of the few haunted boats in the United States is USS Nightmare and for nearly 20 years it's been scaring people in the greater Cincinnati area. What sets this haunt apart from other haunts in the country? It's quite simple, atmosphere.  Once you walk inside this rustic steamboat you can feel its haunted history come alive before you ever come in contact with an actor or see a scary prop. The paint on the walls is peeled while much of the metal is rusting. There is something scary and mysterious about this boat and once you enter the first scene you know all Hell is going to break loose.
 
While the boat alone is frightening, the scenes you'll venture into are down right bone chilling. Some of these include a spooky graveyard, clown ball pit, haunted museum, choose your fait room and so much more. Along with the variety of themed rooms comes there is the latest and greatest in haunt technology. But USS Nightmare doesn't just depend on its eye candy since they have a large group of dedicated actors that are dressed in impressive costumes and makeup and prosthetics. But USS Nightmare's success can be contributed by its dedicated staff that works endless hours constructing and organizing this classic haunt.
 
The staff includes:Allen Rizzo-General Manager, Glenna Rizzo-Production Manager, Steve Schrcitcis-Design, Brian Robbe-Design, Tony Dimuzio-Design, Mark Hopkinson- Design, Jason Ervin-Design, and Jason Stamper-Design.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Baxter Avenue Morgue (Louisville, KY)
 
Baxter Avenue Morgue is possibly one of the most underrated haunts in the country. Since opening in 2000 it has gained a cult status due to its frightening realism and creepy scenes. Although Baxter Avenue Morgue may not take place in an actual morgue, the creators work hard in convincing people that it does. Once you arrive at the morgue a sense of dread may go down you back. This is due to the convincing story of the haunted morgue that chronicles its tragic past and strange occurrences.
 
Before you enter the morgue you are welcomed by the current owner Warren Vanderdark who warns you of what lies behind the morgue's doors. Once you enter the basement of the morgue you soon find out why this haunt is so infamous. This haunt is dark and confining where every scene blends together seamlessly to create a haunting story. The Baxter Avenue Morgue is truly one of those haunts that you must visit once in your lifetime.
 

 

It's that good and the actors who play parts in the various scenes are incredible. Much of the staff is comprised of students from the local school of creative and performing arts and on select days a local dance troop reenacts the classic Thriller video for the crowd waiting in line. In 2007 the original directors Joey Arena and Verity Jones left Baxter Avenue Morgue to work on their latest project Otherworld. It's a haunt that gives customers the choice of what path to take and the haunt promises to have things that you've never seen in any other haunt before. But even though the original creative directors have left Baxter Avenue Morgue still is one of the nation’s most bone chilling haunts that doesn’t seem to miss a step.


The Haunted Hotel (Louisville, KY)

The Haunted Hotel is Louisville’s longest running haunt and for good reason. Intensity doesn’t begin to describe this haunt. When you first arrive at The Haunted Hotel you’ll notice that the street has been blocked off by cop cars because this haunt is that popular. And once you enter you’ll know exactly why. You’ll first enter into a haunted elevator that has been taken over by a deformed pig creature.

The lights begin to flash as the creature presses its buttons and all Hell breaks loose. The elevator uncontrollably shakes as sounds of steel can be heard as the elevator is ready to crash. Make sure and hold onto something before you fall over. Their version of the Hellevator cost over $10,000 alone before the modifications. Finally after a few minutes the ride is over and you’re on the 13th floor. This is when the real fun begins as you venture into unique rooms that have scenes perfectly timed to music and lights.

Some of the rooms you’ll experience are a haunted kitchen full or a moving cabinet doors, a haunted bedroom, a fun house and even a live nude shower scene that squirts people as they peep through the glass. You would pray that your trip into terror was over, but that was only the inside area of the haunt. The outside area includes various scenes and one of the most intense chainsaw mazes you will ever experience. The Haunted Hotel pulls no punches with their mix of intense actors and well-timed scenes. It’s truly one of those haunts that people look forward to all year round.
