Fear Factory
Spring Street between Cour and 10th, Jeffersonville, IN
For many years, The Metro Pharmaceutical Factory manufactured the most widely used drugs for the treatment of paranoia, anxiety, and related mental disorders, until it was discovered that its top-selling drug actually had the adverse effect, not curing, but intensifying fears in patients by producing hallucinations so horrifying that its victims were driven insane. The factory was closed in the wake of the resulting lawsuits. It was rumored that experimentation with these drugs took place on unsuspecting human subjects. A team sent in to investigate these claims never returned. Local residents report strange noises emanating from the abandoned factory to this day, and they believe it to be still inhabited by the victims of medical experiments gone awry. Today, they no longer call it Metro Pharmaceutical, they call it The Fear Factory.  Tickets $12.95 and can be purchased during normal operating hours.

Pitch Black
Spring Street between Cour and 10th, Jeffersonville, IN
This October, experience PITCH BLACK , an entirely new concept in haunted attractions.  Instead of your typical walk-through haunted house with occasional startling scares, ONLY inside PITCH BLACK will you experience the terror that can only exist in the complete absence of space, light, and even time itself. It’s a constant, sustained level of fear never before seen in ANY haunted attraction.

Dementions

Since the beginning of time, most cultures have believed that death is simply a transition to a new life, and that the afterlife exists outside the physical confines of this world. But this October, for the first time ever, you can experience what becomes of those who don’t make this transition, only at “Dementions”, one of Kentuckiana’s newest and largest haunted attractions, located at the Fear Factory Complex. If you dare to enter the door of Dementions, you’ll enter another realm inhabited by those who have died but remain unwillingly bound to this earth. These creatures are driven by maniacal jealously of the living, because you have the one thing they do not – a soul. Their only means of escape is to steal yours. Will you escape Dementions, or will you become trapped in torment for eternity as yet another one of its soulless prisoners? Admission is $12.95 on all nights of operation.

Ghosts of Old Louisville Tour
A brisk fall day is the perfect time to stroll the streets of Old Louisville. An overcast sky overhead and dead leaves underfoot - and just enough chill dampness in the air to make you pull your coat tighter around you…this is the best time to amble along the old streets and alleys, admiring the imposing Victorian architecture while the smell of apples and wood smoke spices the air. The boxwood hedges surrounding the mansions and townhouses still have their summer green, but most of the towering trees have lost their leaves and can only rattle bare branches to protest the gathering winds. If you’re lucky, you might pass one of the old gas lamps at just the right moment when dusk reluctantly surrenders the last of its daylight to night and hear the click and hiss of the lantern coming on in a feeble attempt to ward off the dark. This is the time that ghosts start to wander the streets of Old Louisville.
