The Darkness, St. Louis’ longest-running and scariest haunted house, is opening 2019 haunt season on the most appropriate day on the calendar — Friday the 13th. 

Rated as America’s best haunted house, The Darkness is opening for its 26th year of fear with a total renovation, including the new Skull Kingdom area where visitors come face-to-face with the Army of the Dead, and the Nun section where guests should be sure to keep track of their souls. The Darkness is now longer and more terrifying than ever before in 2019. 

The seasonal attraction offers multiple haunts in one location, starting with two floors of horror-packed haunted house scenes and featuring Zombie Laser Tag where guests hunt, kill and eradicate “real” zombies. The haunt also includes The Hive live zombie experience; TerrorVisions, filled with insane clowns; and the Horror Party Room with pinball games, an escape room, and a replica electric chair. The Darkness is filled with live monsters and ghouls that interact with the guests throughout their visit. More information is available at 

Guests also can visit the St. Louis Escape rooms next door to The Darkness. Four escape rooms are available for group bookings, including the all-new Pirates Curse, the Mummy, the Haunted Hotel and The Cellar.  More information is available at  

The Darkness is located at 1525 South 8th Street, St Louis, Missouri 63104 off South Broadway and across from Soulard Market.
