Darkness Haunted House
On Thursday night I went on a behind-the-scenes tour of the Darkness Haunted House in St. Louis, Missouri. While the Friday & Saturday tours had live actors, the Thursday night version of the tour did not. It was self-guided, with show lighting and no fog. Patrons were allowed to walk through at their own pace, photographing all of the scenes, as they went through. The Darkness consisted of a wide variety of scenes of various themes, including an Egyptian tomb, swamp, funeral parlor, study, morgue and many others. As you can see by the pictures below, the Darkness was very highly detailed. There was not a square inch of the place that was bare. The haunted house was literally filled, from floor to ceiling, with high end props and animatronics. About mid-way through the haunted house, there was also a mirror maze. The last section of the house was a 3D attraction called “Terror Visions”, which had a circus sideshow theme. It featured artwork and static props that glowed under
black lights. Overall, it was an enjoyable tour and I’m glad I had the opportunity to see it. Kudos to Larry Kirchner for opening his attraction, for the Haunt Industry to see.
