What's new for 2020?
The Dark Ride of Terror
This classic dark ride full of gags has been around for 30 years. It is definitely broken, run down, grimy and full of grungy carnival workers. The ride may be broken, but the carnies aren’t closing it down, so get to walking through and keep moving. Be careful—it’s probably not safe walking through a ride and one of these carnies could be a killer.
Some of our clowns decided to go into business for themselves and took over an abandoned ice cream factory. The ingredients are unknown but they call it I-Scream... The clowns took over the factory and went into business last year, but they made some changes and added new things into the factory that will be sure to give you a bumpy ride you’ll never forget!
There's a Gothic world behind the gates of the Nightmare on 13th and a strange darkness has spread, turning all who survive into their worst nightmares. Beware of the new monsters lurking in the rubble and streets!
The Nightmare Castle has long been an icon in Salt Lake, but the time has come and we remodeled our building to tower over 1300 South with a bigger, darker, and scarier looking presence than ever before.
While the haunted house is what the Nightmare is well known for, there are other ways to add to the fun as well. If you are wanting a more family-friendly and non-scary event to do for the evening or during the daytime before coming to the haunted house, check out Escape On 13th.
We have the most immersive and exciting interactive escape adventures along the Wasatch Front. With 3 different themed games to choose from, you’ll find an adventure the whole family will love that leaves you wanting to come back for more! We were able to put all of our set building skills from the Nightmare into a non-scary, family-friendly environment with 360 degree design!
