Halloween is still five long months away, but you don’t have to wait that long to enjoy a little scary fun this summer at Black Orchard Haunted House on Friday and Saturday night, June 15th and 16th, at Red Orchard Park in Shelbyville, KY. Black Orchard is brought to you by the same twisted build and design team that runs The Legend at Pope Lick annually in Jeffersontown. It opened for its’ debut haunt season for Halloween 2017, but the attraction has undergone a major renovation for this particular event during the off season.

“Our team has worked very hard to renovate Black Orchard for Summer Camp,” says Co-owner Michael Book, “It was a great haunt for its inaugural year, but it is so much better that it is almost unrecognizable. Even though we are open for one weekend in June, people can expect even more to be added before opening this fall. Black Orchard is a must see haunt this year!”

Most of the horror classics we all grew up with, from “Friday the 13th” to “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre”, took place during the heat of summer anyway, so it makes complete sense that Black Orchard hopes to recreate some of that slasher-ific atmosphere in this Summer Camp themed event weekend. Your admission ticket will even include a  hot dog, s’more and outdoor movie screenings of classic horror films along with a tour of the Black Orchard Barn, the infamous scene of the legendary Black Orchard Murders.

The infamous Black Orchard Murders were committed by Silas Black and his twisted family of pig farmers and owners of Black Orchard Meats. Silas and his brothers, Jonas and Emmett and their mother Ethyl Black, disappeared after local police discovered an undisclosed number of decomposed bodies on their property in 2015. Rumors persist that they may still be hiding out in the area waiting to return to the scene of their crimes. Authorities have also recently warned the public that their relative, Uncle Ester Black, may be hiding out with the Black clan as well. Uncle Ester is wanted for the murder of six shopping mall employees who unfortunately met their demise while Ester was employed as the Easter Bunny in a regional shopping center in late March 2018.

“Last year people got a small taste of what the Black family is capable of,” says Co-owner Brian Ward. ” Silas and the gang have spent the winter months honing their craft and you won’t believe what they have in store for you!”

Multiple new scenes and twisting passageways await those who experienced Black Orchard during its first haunt season, including new characters and even a nasty rat infestation of the property. First time victims will experience Louisville’s newest haunted attraction in its secluded, rural setting for this special one weekend event. It should be noted that Summer Camp is not an overnight experience, but a walk-thru haunted house during which the actors will not touch or make physical contact with guests. Black Orchard is gritty, gory and scary enough to challenge veteran haunted house fans but the experience is also geared to provide thrills and chills to those looking for a fun, safe scare that makes you scream one moment but laugh out loud the next in relieved tension.

Black Orchard Haunted House is located in Red Orchard Park at 704 Kentucky St. in Shelbyville, KY. The Summer Camp event takes place on Friday and Saturday night, June 15th and 16th, from 8:30 PMmidnight. Tickets are $20. Admission includes a tour of the infamous Black Orchard barn, a hot dog and s’more around a campfire and outdoor screenings of vintage horror movies.
