Three haunted houses and “Vegas-style” performances and performers throughout this haunted fairgrounds. Plus live music and themed concessions. They also do special dates throughout the year.

I have not been to this one and the website isn’t too clear on what they offer. There seems to be two haunted houses, Mortis Manor and Hillside Sanatorium and a Christmastime Krampus attraction.
