The Haunted Hotel (Louisville, KY)

For the second year in a row The Haunted Hotel has come out on top as the best haunt out of every single place we reviewed in 2006. Every year it brings something new to the table with its mix of intense actors and insane scenes. It’s amazing how this haunt progresses year after year and no wonder the streets are blocked off when The Haunted Hotel is in business. It’s that good and one of the most underrated haunts around.
