Greystone Manor is a magnificent example of Victorian Architecture and reported by many to be Haunted by various ghosts. Owner Christopher James opens up the attraction each October for brave souls willing to enter the three story mansion. Just down the block, Christopher’s home is a step back in time and chocked full of antiques, ceramics and memorabilia of a long forgotten time, and we are graciously invited us to see what a fully restored museum quality Victorian house looks like.
After checking in at the hotel, we head off to Castle Dread for a full actor, lights of tour of this highly detailed, 3,000 square foot attraction with 10,000 square feet worth of props, animatronics and creative scares. Owner Debbie Tannes is a true lover of Halloween and the sophistication of this non-profit Haunt quite surprising.
No time to rest as we are back on the busses headed to the largest Haunted Attraction in Florida. Terror of Tallahassee is 12,000 square feet of great scares and illusions. Owner Kurt Kuersteiner is especially proud of the many pepper’s Ghost Illusions and the high scare factor of the attraction now in its eighth year at this location.
The next morning we tour the Old City Cemetery and hear stories of the restless spirits that walk the solemn grounds. There are lots of very unusual headstones and epitaphs on property, even one grave rumored to be a witch! Then back over for a lights-on tour of Castle Dread, to get a close look at the heave detail and ingenuity of this great haunt.
Heading west we arrive at Warehouse 31. Open for the first time in 2009, the attraction is owned by Red Mountain Entertainment. The large high capacity attraction has great sets and 8,000 feet of screams.
So the score is four Haunted Attractions and three Paranormal places in two days. The price for the tour includes meals, transportation, double occupancy accommodations and admission to the attractions. Pre-show Price is $195 for double occupancy and $235 Single occupancy.
