The chilling, holiday haunted house brings the story of the Christmas demon from German folklore, Krampus, to life just in time for Friday the 13th. Visitors who loved getting spooked during Halloween can get scared all over again this holiday season.

Returning for its second year, the haunt features new scenes and set designs.

Haunted house producers say a new chapter unfolds this year with Krampus and Jack Frost teaming up to “haunt all the little girls and boys.” Jack Frost, known for being the ultimate trickster, is here to have those warm Christmas hearts succumb to his ice.
