On October 1, 1978 Nightmare on Edgewood was born. It quickly became one of Indy’s best haunted houses. For 31 years, Nightmare on Edgewood, was ran by Edgewood little league as their main fundraiser. In 2008 the EAA board of directors decided to shut down the program. In 2009 Paul and Kevin Cook re-opened Indy’s oldest haunt, Nightmare on Edgewood, as Southside Massacre. For the past four years they made it better and better earning the title “Indy’s most INTENSE” haunted house.
For the second year in a row, we made the almost-three-hour trek up north to Niles, Michigan to the Niles Haunted House Scream Park -- and again, we were NOT disappointed.
Niles was pretty impressive last year in 2014, but how exactly did it fair in 2015?
Let's dig in, shall we...
Each year, the main house at Niles gets a redesign. This year, their theme is Kingdoms End, a haunt based almost entirely on the works on Stephen King.
And you know what? It's awesome! Every minute of it. Awesome. Almost all of King's more famous works are represented here. Whether you want to see Carrie get crowned at the prom or pass by a Pet Sematary or even walk through a dark hedge maze, it's all here!
Kingdoms End is packed full of scares and surprises and is definitely an attraction you don't want to miss when visiting Niles Scream Park.
Ashes to Ashes
Now this was a cool one I didn't expect. Ashes to Ashes is set up like an abandoned boarding school and if y…
Indy has a new haunted house opening in 2017!
The Thirteenth Hour first opened 13 years ago as a charity haunted attraction. The event raised thousands of dollars for local community organizations and started the path to opening a professional haunted attraction.
In 2017, our team of builders and artists are resurrecting The Thirteenth Hour in Indianapolis. We have spent the last five years building a haunted attraction unlike anything you have seen before.
Join us as we take you on a journey below the surface and uncover a world that has been shielded from the public for over 100 years.Location

It's that time of the year again -- haunted house season is officially here! And for the fourth consecutive year, we wandered up North to Niles, Michigan for the one and only Niles Scream Park!
So without any ado, let's jump into it... The Niles Haunted House
Like last year, the main house kept the cinema theme. But this year, they changed up the movies and the decorations. The house is notorious for having numerous ways to get through, and unfortunately for us, we only went through the house once so we didn't get to see and experience every route. But that's okay because what we did see was an easy A+.
This is one of Niles' new haunts this year -- and if you haven't guessed, it's got a demonic possession/Exorcist theme. And it works. The set decoration and mood and atmosphere are great. The only thing I feel this haunt needs is a little more action. Otherwise, it's a great haunt.
Another one of their new haunts this year is…
