The Devil’s Attic (Louisville, KY)
“Hell Has A New Home”
By Noah Wullkotte: Jollypumpkin@aol.com
The Devil’s Attic welcomes you to one of Louisville’s best haunted attractions. You won’t believe the sights you’ll see. An old brick building beckons you to enter its fortress of fear. What lies beyond these walls is inhuman and you’ll require years of therapy after you’re done.
The Devil’s Attic is one of the most detailed haunts in the state of Kentucky. I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again. Good lighting can make a scene come alive and the creators of The Devil’s Attic know this. Most of the rooms are illuminated with led spotlights that give scenes a haunting glow.
The Devil’s Attic plays homage to classic horror movies from a bygone era and fright flicks that have kept people up at night. There’s something for everyone and you’re sure to recognize many of the movies that are recreated. A mad scientist brings his experiment to life in the detailed laboratory. A helpless man tries to escape his cage before becoming a blood thirsty werewolf.
The Devil’s Attic has customers entering their favorite movies like Hellraiser, Sleepy Hollow, Saw, The Exorcist, 13 Ghosts, Texas Chainsaw Massacre and so much more. New this year is the Evil Dead cabin which features an actor that is a dead ringer for Bruce Campbell. The Devil’s Attic has some crazy characters. You’ll come face to face with the Angry Princess from 13 Ghosts and she’s not very happy as she walks around nude.
One of our favorite scenes is the Christmas room featuring the iconic Krampus. For those who don’t know, Krampus is a horned creature that punishes children who misbehave during Christmas time. Over the years, this folklore has become very popular in the horror community and there’s even going to be a film based on this German legend.
The Devil’s Attic is non stop horror from beginning to end. There are only a few times where something or someone isn’t out to get you. You’ll be on the edge of your seat as you walk through this labyrinth of terror. The total tour time is around 12 minutes, but feels longer since there are so many different scenes. This is a quality haunt that’s improved every year and is showing no signs of slowing down.
Tickets are $18 and you can skip the lines with a speed pass for only $22. There’s plenty to entertain you while you wait to enter Hell. Sick and twisted images play on the projection screen, there are masked characters roaming around and there’s even a live show featuring the Devil himself. Make sure to have your selfie taken in the selfie booth and get a bite to eat at the concession area.
The Devil’s attic has proved itself as one of Louisville’s finest haunts. It has a great cast of characters, detailed scenes and it’s downright fun.
