Nashville Nightmare

Nashville, Tennessee

When I pulled up I noticed a lot of things have changed at Nashville Nightmare. There was a ‘carnival midway’ type of setup and a maze outside among other things. There were a lot of actors outside scaring the guests.
Everyone was very friendly and helpful. We started out at the ‘Horror High Final Exam’ section. It is cut in half to accommodate another section- the ‘Industrial Undead’. Those two areas were not as long as ‘Night Terrors’. The sets were very detailed and actors and make up were on point. They set people up for ‘Night Terrors’ and the ‘Fairy Tale Hell’ areas. ‘Night Terrors’ was awesome! It was so intense and such a sensory overload with the smells, the feel, lights, and noises. It's a feast for the senses! ‘Fairy Tale Hell’ was exactly what it sounds like: a lot of your childhood stories brought to life in a terrifying way. All in all it shows why Nashville Nightmare holds the claim as the #1 haunt in Tennessee. We here at TN Horror News definitely recommend visiting Nashville Nightmare!

Monster Mountain Haunted Attraction
Hendersonville, Tennessee

The opening weekend of Monster Mountain’s 2016 haunted attraction, I decided to venture out with a group of friends in hopes to have the bejeezus scared out of me. Upon pulling up to the attraction, I immediately noticed how eerily desolate its surroundings were. The location of the haunt was located at the top of a rather large hill and the name ‘Monster Mountain’ illuminated the night sky.
My trip to Monster Mountain was a refreshingly scary one in that it wasn’t like your typical ‘run of the mill’ haunted house. The use of big name horror characters was kept to a very minimum. In doing so, the haunt was instantly more terrifying and realistic because I was immersed in scenes that made me feel as if I was playing an invaluable part in them. Monster Mountain obviously spared no expense on creepy animatronics and other props, special fx makeup, intricate set designs, and insanely believable actors and actresses. The ticket staff and security were extremely accommodating as well. Monster Mountain was worth every penny spent on admission in that they delivered on freaking people out and causing many to have nightmares long past the end of that night.

Awesome Parts:
Horrifying Clown Area with a Creepy Twist!
Zombies Area!
Vortex Tunnel!

Zombie Outbreak Dread the Undead

Pigeon Forge, Tn


Zombie Outbreak Dread the Undead

is a must see for any haunted attraction lover. Located at the Hollywood Wax Museum Entertainment Center in the heart of Pigeon Forge Tennessee, this attraction delivers highly on jump scares.

Starting off, your party is led into a debriefing room where you are informed of the virus Outbreak that has happened at the lab you're  about to venture through: Chemacorp. From there, your group starts the haunt walk through and is met immediately by vast amounts of pneumatic, realistic props.

I'll admit that its a rare occasion for me to get scared at a haunt. Although there were few actors, this attraction got me a few times with the jump scares! Overall, I found this attraction to be one hell of a nonstop terrifying, adrenaline pumping experience from start to finish.

Cool Stuff:
Immersive atmosphere complete with putrid smells. Yes... I said smells...

Price Point?
Ages 12 and up:  $15.00
Ages 4 to 11:       $10.00

Family friendly?
Yep... though may not be suitable for younger children due to guts and gore.

Hours of Operation  
Open year round!
Hours vary... but is usually open rather early til late at night.
Most days: 9:00 a.m. til 11:00 p.m.

        Clarksville Zombie Hunters

       Clarksville, Tennessee


So starting off, I must admit I'm a huge fan of The Walking Dead comic book and TV series. Upon noticing that there was a zombie hunting haunted attraction in my area, I immediately jumped on the opportunity to get in on the action. Clarksville Zombie Hunters is home to 5 epic attractions: zombie paintball hayride, zombie mission, death's door escape game, zombie shooting gallery, and outdoor movies. The zombie paintball hayride was by far my preferred entertainment of the night. Who wouldn't want to load up on a multiple paintball gun-equipped zombie killing truck and hunt down a substantial amount of zombies? Not only were my fellow hunters and I thoroughly enjoying our ride, but we were also contributing to financially help a school that night. Clarksville Zombie Hunters allowed students from that school to gear up as zombies and receive a portion of proceeds from that night for their school.

In general, the feel of Clarksville Zombie Hunters' attractions had a zombie apocalypse type of vibe to them and made for an overall enjoyable experience.

Awesome Parts:
Free zombie head toss game
Roaming realistic zombie actors
Food truck
