Description: This year, the famous haunted house will stage the original versions of well-known (and some lesser known) fairy tales at their most gruesome and horrific. Get lost in a dark forest and wander through the woods while becoming the characters and reliving the terrifying experiences extracted from more than a dozen twisted stories handed down by The Brothers Grimm, Aesop, Hans Christian Anderson, and more. Try to stay on the path as you go from cottage to cottage, each intended to scare the wits out of you. Another component to this year's Nightmare will be a sensory-assaulting 5-D theatre experience called "The Experiment," where audience members are subjects in a case study for research on the threshold of fear. No children younger than 10 will be admitted. Children younger than 16 must be accompanied by an adult.
