  • General admission: $20; fast pass (WORTH IT!): $25

Run For Your Life: Review of Nightmare on Edgewood

Consistently ranked one of Indy’s premier haunts, if not the top-dog, NOEW offers a smattering of freaky frights that will probably hit home with even the bravest soul. Ranging from demented clowns to cannibal butchers, this haunt promises certain fright to anyone who enters.

Mike Kaiser’s Poor Farm: Central Indiana’s Best Haunted Corn Maze

Tall stalks of corn offer adequate cover for the countless actors wielding chainsaws throughout, waiting to jump out when you least expect it. Different types of indoor stations along the way create a sense of smothering stuffiness, contrasted by the vulnerability of walking through a corn field – something you simply can’t experience in the city. If you run from a monster in a corn field, you really have nowhere to go.

  • Franklin, IN
  • Actors DO NOT touch
  • $10

scarevania

Scarevania: Muncie’s Own Devil Rejects

Scarevania upholds a no-touch policy but that doesn’t mean they won’t interact with you. Those who aren’t scaring are clearly pissed off or mentally disturbed and they’re keenly aware of your presence.

When we entered the haunt an immediate assault of all senses immediately began: blaring death metal music, shrill screams from all angles and enduring performances that felt authentic as we stumbled by, totally in shock of our surroundings.

  • Muncie, IN
  • Actors DO NOT touch
  • $12

cedar-rock-hearse

Get Your Money’s Worth at Cedar Rock, the Midwest’s Longest Haunted Trail

Set back in the woods and over a mile long, this haunted trail and its two other attractions really created an immersive and erie experience with plenty of scares and surprises. It was thrillingly nerve-wracking sliding down narrow, winding hallways with the Walking Dead theme playing loudly on loop and zombies growling in my ear the entire time. The maze isn’t hard, but that’s a good thing since it’s a real challenge to solve puzzles with a biter breathing down your neck.

  • Jamestown, IN
  • Actors DO touch
  • $25 combo ticket; $17 haunted trail only; $36 fast pass

indy-scream-park

Indy Scream Park: Scares Around Every Corner

With a whopping five haunted attractions (three indoors and two outdoors), Hollywood-quality props and production, and a carnival-themed Monster Midway Indy Scream Park is a haunt enthusiast’s playground.

  • Anderson, IN
  • Actors DO NOT touch
  • General admission $28; fast pass $44

haunted-angelus-indy

Scaring for a Cause: Haunted Angelus House

The Haunted Angelus House is certainly not for the faint of heart, but it is also relatively family friendly. There were terrifying moments that may, or may not, have involved evil clowns. Also, some of Hollywood’s scariest bad guys were seen thoughout the place. However, it was not pants-wettingly horrifying, so take that into consideration when planning.

  • Indianapolis, IN
  • Actors DO NOT touch
  • General admission $20; child’s ticket $10; unlimited entry for one night $30

twisted-darkness

Kokomo’s Twisted Darkness Lives Up To Its Name

The first half of Twisted Darkness lives up to its name, winding attendees through dimly lit hallways, tunnels and dungeons. Some actors stalked us as we moved about in the haunt, while others played their role from their distinct room. We especially loved one particularly flexible patient in the psych ward portion of the haunt.

  • Kokomo, IN
  • Actors DO NOT touch
  • General admission $15; fast pass $25

hanna

Hanna Haunted Acres Introduces Hooded

The aptly-named Hooded requires a signed acknowledgement of the risks involved in the unique do-touch haunt that puts patrons in an opaque hood, robbing them of their ability to see. Stumbling blindly through a possessed dungeon of death, victims must feel their way out via a rope that leads the way.

  • Indianapolis, IN
  • Actors DO touch in Hooded; DO NOT touch in all other attractions
  • Combo pass – $29.00 at door or $27.00 online; fast pass – $40.00 at door or $38.00 online
  • We recommend taking advantage of Hanna Haunted Acre’s online-only tickets for a single pass to Hooded or the haunted hayride.
