The Nightmare Begins | History of the Haunted House[edit]

Troy Barber and Mike Henrie first opened this haunted attraction in 1990. The original name was “The Institute of Terror.” After the 9/11 terrorist attacks in 2001 the company changed the name to “Nightmare on 13th.”

Nightmare on 13th is a seasonal haunted house open in September and October, but its creators work on it all year long to keep it fresh every year.

Nightmare on 13th is the only haunted attraction that has a fully animated theater show that you watch while you wait in line before going into the actual haunted house. After you enter the haunted house there are over 45 different rooms you travel though which take approximately 45 minutes.

This haunted house was featured on the Travel Channel in 2009 and 2010 and was on the cover of Haunted Attraction Magazine in 2009.
