    Haunted Hotel is Louisville's oldest haunted house attraction; the group of ghouls there keep the Fourth and Central neighborhood exciting throughout the Halloween season (mid-September through the end of October) with an array of colorful lights and terrifying noises from chainsaws and a blank shooting machine gun prop.

    The haunted house uses a well done blend of costumes, lighting, make up and hydraulic props to keep you on your toes. They really push boundaries to scare you as they will touch you unlike many haunts. Actors are likely to pop out at any moment as the design of the haunt includes many "invisible" doors. It seem they come right out of the wall. You'll find yourself trapped in a falling elevator, face to face with crazies, chased by scarecrows and thrown into terrifying scenes of chaos involving the butcher, the bartender and the ...well, not the candlestick maker. You'll find plenty of other creepy characters to make up for him. The  use of music for each of the scenes definitely adds to the experience, further stretching your senses as you try to remain aware of your surroundings and not get sucked into the dark created fantasies. Haunt enthusiasts won't be disappointed.

    This haunt is definitely not for small children and is recommended for high school age and above. Tickets are $20; VIP tickets are $29. They are open this week Wednesday through Sunday. Weekday hours (including Sunday) are 8 p.m. to 12 a.m. They are open Friday and Saturday from 8 p.m. to 2 a.m.
