Raven’s Curse Haunted House has opened to scare another round of visitors this fall.

Filling more than 11,000 square feet of space in Centralia, the haunted house has many live actors, Hollywood quality sets, terrifying animatronic characters, and state-of-the-art video effects are sure to leave you screaming, according to the website. HauntedIllinois.com called it one of the top 10 haunted houses in the state.

New this year, “Slaughter on the Midway” has its visitors wander through the crumbling remains of a carnival funhouse. According to the backstory, the rundown carnival on the edge of town has reopened, even though many individuals “claim that, late at night, the midway lights come alive and the sound of carnival fanfare floats through the air…but the carnival has been abandoned since Halloween night in 1976.  That night, the clowns went on a murderous rampage through the carnival grounds killing more than 100 patrons before going down in a hail of police bullets in what became Centralia’s most gruesome murder spree since the ‘Hemsworth Massacre’ of 1954.  Authorities are warning everyone to stay away from the carnival grounds while they investigate the activity there. The carnival grounds are extremely dangerous and under no circumstances should anyone enter the area.”

The brave at heart may also want to check out the Escape, where participants race against time to try and survive a serial killer’s demented game. Players have to work together and solve a series of puzzles before it’s too late.

The haunted opened for the season on Sept. 29, and there are still many days left in the month to get your frights on.

Raven’s Curse is open October 6, 7, 8, 13, 14, 20, 21, 22, 27, 28, 29 and 31 until 11 p.m. Get tickets here.
