Haunted Houses

Nightmare On 13th

Nightmare on 13th Is Utah’s largest and longest running Haunted Attraction. Located downtown at 300 West 1300 South Nightmare on 13th is 36,000 square feet of sheer terror. The Haunted House has been featured on the cover of Haunted Attraction Magazine as one of the industrys most successful operations.

It has also been seen on The Travel Channel as one of America’s Scariest Attractions. In 2008 USA Today recognized Nightmare on Thirteenth as one of America’s best Haunted Houses.

Nightmare on 13th takes pride in being on the cutting edge of the latest technological advances in the Haunted House industry.

They have pioneered the Nightmare Theatre concept, which is an animated, computer driven experience that every customer gets to walk through before entering the Haunted House.

Nightmare also has a second attraction called the “EXTREME”. This walkthrough incorporates ideas that are so intense that they cannot be offered in the main attraction due to time and space restraints.

We invite you to visit the Haunted House this fall and experience the Nightmare for yourself.

Erebus Haunted House

When the question “what’s your favorite haunt?” comes up in Michigan (the haunted house capital of the world) there is always one attraction that continuously gets the #1 ranking, EREBUS, THE FOUR STORY HAUNTED ATTRACTION, in Downtown Pontiac.

For 30 years the owner’s of Erebus, brothers,James and Edward Terebus, have dominated the market with state of the art terror technology and have consistently gained local, as well as national recognition, as having one of the top haunts in the nation.  Erebus has been featured on the Travel Channel, and has been deemed one of the top haunts in the nation by HauntWorld magazine and featured as one of the top “must see” haunts in Haunted Attraction Magazine.

Locally, Erebus was voted “Best Nightlife/Haunted House” by viewers of NBC TV, WDIV, channel 4 and, named  “Best Haunted Attraction” by Real Detroit Weekly.  One reason for its popularity is due to the fact that Erebus manufactures most, if not all, of their major effects in-house, so victims are guaranteed a more unique experience as they are engaged in an all out assault on all 5 of their senses.  Massive crowds gather night after night to take the terrifying journey through time in Dr. Colber’s time machine.

This massive 4 story haunt delivers unfathomable frights and excitement creating a fear so intense some all it pain.

Sponsors have the outstanding opportunity to develop a strategic, dynamic partnership with Michigan’s largest and most popular Halloween attraction, Erebus.
