Two Haunted Adventures: One Eerie Location

The Scream Haunted House

Watch your back as you travel through over 14,000 square feet of fright including 30 horrifying scenes, double vortex tunnels, a grave crawl, and squeeze wall, built inside an empty warehouse inhabited by zombies, beasts, monsters, and roaming sinister characters.

The Scream Haunted Warehouse Tour
Back by popular demand, the Haunted Warehouse Tour guides patrons through abandoned portions of the warehouse that are rumored to be haunted. Similar to the TV show, “Ghost Adventures,” this flashlight tour is a paranormal experience where a small group of explorers visits the creepy remains of a once buzzing cafeteria, kitchen, and locker room of the old Mueller warehouse.
