The Final Screams of Halloween 2018!

Fear Fair Haunted House

Extra Weekends, Blackout Nights and Jack-O-Lantern Spectacles Highlight the Last Week of the Season!

The elder weather gods summoned up a soggy sabbath this All Hallows’ Eve, but there’s still fun to be had on the other side of October 31st this year if you need one more trick-or-treat before winter. Honestly, it has been a tough season all around for outdoor haunts and attractions due to unprecedented rainfall, early freezing temperatures and even one devilish windstorm. But there have been some ghoulish highlights to haunt season 2018 as well.

Michael Myers made a triumphant return to cinemas in “Halloween” (2018), shattering October box-office records and quickly becoming the highest grossing sequel in the franchise. Original director, John Carpenter, returned as executive producer and even scored the film while original Scream Queen, Jamie Lee Curtis, reprised her role as Laurie Strode for the 40th anniversary of the franchise.

The classic Universal Monsters finally saw all 30 films in the series remastered in high-definition and released on Blu-ray. Toy fans were treated to the return of Mego Action Figures as exclusive Target store collectibles that included a licensed Bela Lugosi Dracula, Frankenstein and a licensed Lon Chaney Jr. werewolf.

Locally, the Louisville Halloween Parade and Street Festival was a huge success in its’ sixteenth consecutive season in the Highlands. Several Louisville area haunted attractions made Top Haunted House lists nationwide. Even as we said goodbye to Travis Boling’s 7th Street Haunt, we were gifted with the promise for his latest creation, The American Horrorplex, which will be making its’ debut for Halloween 2019.

Below you will find a list of all the attractions open post Oct. 31st for one last thrill.
