Ready to get spooked? New Orleans Nightmare opens at former House of Shock site

A new 25,000 square-foot haunted attraction with bone-chilling experiences opens at the site previously occupied by the House of Shock. New Orleans Nightmare unleashes “a new kind of fear” for the 2018 Halloween season.

The new haunted house opens in Jefferson, La. under the Huey P. Long Bridge. The location was the former site of the notorious House of Shock before the crew called it quits after celebrating their 25th anniversary in 2017.

Haunted house producers say they’ve spent the last several months renovating the haunt to create an entirely new Halloween experience for fear-seeking guests, according to a release.

“We’ve completely transformed the space into something truly never-before-seen, horrifying and sure to please die-hard fans,” Chris Stafford, CEO and founding partner of Thirteenth Floor Entertainment Group, said.

Thirteenth Floor Entertainment Group is a Halloween-themed entertainment company behind several haunted houses across the country. The company currently produces haunted houses in more than a dozen national locations including San Antonio; Austin, Texas; Nashville, Tenn.; Chicago and Los Angeles, among others.

Haunted house producers say guests will “feel like they’ve stumbled into their very own horror film,” according to the release.

New Orleans Nightmare promises Hollywood-caliber sets and top-notch special effects. Visitors can explore three haunted attractions called The Laughterhouse 3D, Museum Macabre and Cursed: Voodoo.

The Laughterhouse 3D is a clown-themed spectacle featuring “inhumane beasts” and “sinister freaks” for the “greatest nightmare on earth,” according to the website. Museum Macabre pays tribute to the French Quarter’s Musée Conti wax museum. Cursed: Voodoo follows a character names Baron Crow who plans to “merge his power with everyone in the cemetery” in order to “resurrect his long-lost love,” the website says.

New Orleans Nightmare is located at 319 Butterworth Street in Jefferson, under the Huey P. Long Bridge.

The haunted house opened on Sept. 21 and runs through Nov. 3.

Ticket prices vary based on day. Fast pass, skip the line tickets are also available for additional fees. Group rates are also available.
