There are ghosts that haunt The Mayhem Mansion in Morning View, KY. They have unfinished business and are looking to reach out in some way. There are few places where I feel uneasy and Mayhem Mansion is one of them. I sensed an evil presence as I parked the car, but maybe I’m just losing my mind. All I know is that this is one spooky home.
Mayhem Mansion takes place in the 1930’s during prohibition. You aren’t going to find many high tech scares. The creators are trying to make the experience as authentic as possible. You’ll explore various scenes including a bar, library, wine cellar, meat locker, sewing room, boiler room and much more. Two demented little girls want you to become their latest doll. This is a very intense haunt and it’s quite interactive. Pay your respects to Elizabeth and get on your knees to pray. An evil priest isn’t taking crap from anyone and you better listen to him or else. Mayhem Mansion is full of some crazy characters. The maid had me cleaning off the bottom of my shoes and I was forced to make the bed. The crazed butcher is ready to slice and dice you. The rooms you’ll enter are ones you would see in an actual house.
The bar is serving up a delicious concoction that resembles blood and the pretzels are to die for. Every year the drink tastes a little different. One year it tasted like tainted black licorice and this year it tasted a bit like cinnamon. The actors are very good at Mayhem Mansion and this is a full contact haunt. You’ll be grabbed, separated from your group and be verbally assaulted. Hell, I was forced to pick up severed fingers off the floor. Much of the cast is young, but they do a fantastic job at making people cower in fear. This is a scary haunt and the actors don’t let up for a minute.
Mayhem Mansion is decorated with old antiques and many of the rooms smell strange. It almost smells like the mansion has aged over time. It will take you around 20 minutes to explore Mayhem Mansion, but this depends on how long the characters interact with you. You’ll exit out the second story window. Mayhem Mansion is an old school haunt with scenes that tell the tragic story of Elizabeth and her father Robert Haverford. It involves heartbreak, murder and suicide.
