Brown Rice

Are you looking for a real spine-tingling haunted house experience? If so, you've come to the right place. Here's all the gory details on Louisville's most frightening haunts.

Louisville has truly scary haunted houses — but be warned: these are not your typical Halloween attractions. Instead they're full of genuine terror spanning beyond what any human has gone through before!

Haunted Hotel is known around Louisville as the best and scariest haunt, which may have something to do with the fact that the actors can touch you. The thought of that alone will never not freak me out.

1) Haunted Hotel

It’s a scavenger hunt across Louisville that takes you to real haunted places around town and, if you like, a few haunted houses, too!

2) Danger Run

Located centrally, it is very easy to get to and has been around for 20 years. Not too boring, not too scary. It's just right!

3) Baxter Avenue Morgue

All good cities should have a good urban legend. Something that is creepy, sinister, and maybe a little bit ridiculous. Well, here in Louisville, we have the Goat Man: half goat, half man, all evil.

4) Legend at Pope Lick Haunted Woods

Screams fill the air as you wait your turn to explore the haunted halls, wander through a maze of maniacs, and try to escape with your mind – and soul – intact.

5) The American Horrorplex

This haunt does a good job having specific theming, but also changes up the cast of characters every year. This one always feels like a winner from the sheer dedication of the actors and the sets.

6) Devil’s Attic
