Nightmare at Dread Hollow returns
Three nightmares combine for one award-winning haunt
The award- winning team behind Dread Hollow returns this season with three terrifying new haunts entwined into one nightmare experience.
The haunting of the mythic town of Dread Hollow begins Friday, Sept. 28, and continues every Thursday through Sunday during October as well as Halloween night.
The 20,000- squarefoot location in Lookout Valley includes newly developed areas of town for this fall’s storyline.
“A fright-filled night at Dread Hollow is a Chattanooga tradition. Visitors come back year after year to experience the petrifying, all-new storylines, characters and professional sets. It’s truly terrifying,” says Ruby Falls President Hugh Morrow.
Visitors will make their way through the ominous town built on tainted soil to the Belle Royale Hotel. A paranormal investigative team will unearth evidence of supernatural activity from a scorned bride and other tormented souls. Stumble into the seemingly idyllic Harley Farm, where darkness and evil extract a bloody price for Ezra Harley’s desperate decision.
Enter the abandoned fairgrounds of the cursed Brine Bros. Circus, where sideshow freaks beckon visitors to forever join them in their Cirque de Fatale.
“Dread Hollow 2018 delves deep i nto storylines and physical spaces that are a part of most folks’ worst nightmares. Extensive new areas of the town will push you way beyond your comfort zone,” says Todd Patton, co-creator of Dread Hollow and its prequel, Ruby Falls Haunted Cavern.
Also new this year: Two, separately ticketed extreme escape rooms designed for two to four people. One room is shrouded in darkness and participants only have five minutes to break free. The other room allows 15 minutes to escape from notorious serial killer, Eugene Todd. Both rooms come with a warning to expect dirt, grime, blood and slime to play a role in getaway attempts.
For thrill-seekers who want the ultimate blood-red carpet treatment, R. I. P. Fast Passes give hard- core horror fans exclusive access to the R. I. P lounge, where they control the terror in a hidden scare zone on unsuspecting general-admission guests. R.I.P. Pass holders also receive a lanyard and exclusive discounts on Dread Hollow merchandise and photography packages.
Dread Hollow is a Top 20 Southeast Tourism Society event for 2018 and was voted by fans on ScareFactor.com as a 2018 and 2017 Top 10 Must-See Haunt in Tennessee.
Because of their intensity, Dread Hollow and Dread Hollow escape rooms are not recommended f or children under the age of 12.
General admission tickets are $20; VIP Fast Passes are $35.
