At that time it was not safe to let your kids go trick or treating any longer , The kids didn’t have anything to do for Halloween so we thought we would give them something fun to do besides getting into trouble soaping windows and toilet papering houses.

Since 1978 the Hotel of Terror has been a safe place to bring your whole family or just drop off your kids while the worried mother sits in the car watching them move forward in the line until they disappear in the door. In the beginning it only took 5 to 10 minuets to go all the way thru the building we only used the two top floors at that time and we didn’t put the 96 foot slide in until 1980.

Opening night 1978 we only had 13 victims and the price was $2.00 we took in a total of $26.00 the first night we opened.

The money was not our goal the fun we had the fun we gave was our goal, It still warms my heart to see the people come to see what I have built to try to scare them.

The sound equipment we have used in the last thirty years has changed as much as we have. We started with eight track tape players and even record players, When the sound would stop we would run to restart the record. Then we started using cassette tape players at least we didn’t half to run to restart them, then came the CD’s which we still use several of them today. But what we use most is digital voice chips to make sound at the exact moment we need it.

We have always used several spooks in the Hotel to ensure a great scare, even thou we now use several air creatures, we still employ 25 or more people, so some thing or someone is going to get you and every corner.

We use all four floors of the building and you still escape down the 96 foot slide.

Now thirty years later we have scared you, your kids and your parents.

And I want to thank you for coming to the Hotel of Terror and giving us a chance to scare the yell out of you.

  • Email Verified The best scare

    Been coming to the Hotel since I was a teenager. Now, my teenagers are going and dragging new victims, I mean their friends with them. Every room is another scream waiting to happen.

  • Awesome

    Really good and scary haunt. A 4 or 5 story hotel that every square foot is used to make you scream. Even has a slide. Really creative. Will definitely go back again.
