Malice Manor (Clarksville, IN)
“A Smorgasbord of Scares”

Indiana’s newest haunt is called Malice Manor. Located in Clarksville, Indiana is a haunt that’s unlike anything else in the area. It’s balls to the wall with scenes that will make your jaw drop and characters that will make you laugh hysterically. Malice Manor is an absolute blast and we’re looking forward to seeing how they evolve in the years to come.
Malice Manor is a 12 minute journey through twisted scenes of bloodshed and pure mayhem. We were shocked and disgusted at the same time. This is a bad ass haunt that’s very unpredictable. Malice Manor doesn’t play by the rules of a typical haunt. Yes, there are some rooms they have that are standard in many attractions, but the majority of Malice Manor is crazy as hell.
The actors are hardcore and depraved. They will make you feel uncomfortable. One of my favorite characters is Bubba. He’s a beer drinking hillbilly who loves to hangout near Elvis who can be seen sitting on a toilet. Yes, you read that sentence correctly. Bubba is a fun loving guy, but watch out or you will have beer thrown on you. Bubba might even rub up against you with his big hairy gut.
There are many scenes that are quite interactive. The arcade was very interesting. I was forced to play a game of basketball using some skulls. A dying fat man layed in a bed and the only way I could escape the room was by feeding him. So, I shot liquid into his mouth by using a syringe. It was disgusting, but very memorable. Malice Manor doesn’t follow a specific theme. There are a variety of rooms that will entertain the masses. Many of these scenes are super detailed.
The Pirate’s Cove was very immersive and the actor playing the pirate did a phenomenal job staying in character. We both sang the SpongeBob SquarePants theme together. Watch out or you might get eaten by a giant shark. Other scenes include the Crown Royal Playboy Lounge. These ladies want to kill you and hopefully you will escape with your head still intact. This is a bizarre haunt which I appreciate. The characters are unique as well. Did a reindeer just chase me with a gas powered chainsaw?
Malice Manor was a pleasant surprise. I really didn’t know what to expect since this was a first year haunt, but I walked away with a big smile on my face. The actors are wild, many of the scenes are crazy and there are plenty of eye catching props that we loved looking at. The bleeding skull fountain and the entrance through the fireplace were great.
I don’t have many complaints to be honest. The only thing I would say is that the outside of the queue line needs some work. The queue line actors were entertaining, but there wasn’t much to look at in the queue line. The door that mysteriously opened to let us enter the haunt was a nice touch.
It took us around 12 minutes to escape. We wish it was a little longer, but the length depends on how long you interact with the actors and of course how fast you walk. Tickets are $25 and a Fast Pass to skip the regular line is $40. This might seem a little high for a first year haunt, but Malice Manor is quite unique and one that you’re going to be talking about for a long time.
