Ruby Falls Haunted Cavern
(Warning! May Cause Nightmares!) There has been a monster outbreak at the Ruby Falls Haunted Cavern. The area’s top haunt has been turned into a Flesh Farm! Terror is lurking around every corner of one of Chattanooga’s most scenic attractions.
Your experience begins 26 stories underground where no one can here you scream, with only one way out. And once the Hellevator brings you to the surface, you are then treated with a scene that is equally horrific, and includes a mysterious van ride up the mountain.
Upon entering the Flesh Farm you are exposed to a world torn by infection and chaos, zombies and freaks. Inside the farm, the haunt will tingle all of your senses. Touch, sight, smell and hearing. Watch out, because you just never know what is going to be right around the corner.
This is the 13th year of the Ruby Falls Haunted Cavern. They pride themselves on terrifying their world-record breaking crowds each year. This prestigious haunt has won several awards over the years, and is listed as number four on Buzzfeed’s national list of “19 Terrifying Haunted Houses You Should Experience Before You Die”.
The fun (or not so much fun) begins as soon as you exit your vehicle with the freaks lying in wait. The attention they pay when it comes to details in the haunt, and in the makeup on the actors, is breath taking. So much work and effort goes into the making of this haunt that as soon as one year ends, they get to work planning the next one almost immediately.
The event is open every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday night through October 30th. Your dark evening begins with a freak parade at 7:30 p.m. The mob of freaks and zombies then accompany and mingle with you in line to help set the mood and go ahead and get your heart racing. Parking is very limited and it is encouraged for you to come early and witness the parade, if only to mentally prepare yourself for the terror you’re about to endure.
There are some discounts and other advantages to come on a Friday or Sunday night. Discounts can be obtained on online along with a list of other specials.
Every year the Haunted Cavern brings you a new theme, new characters, and new fear factors along with returning favorites like the Hellevator, chainsaws, and fire-breathing freaks. To follow along with this year’s story line and to read up on all the characters go to the Haunted Cavern website for all the information your soon to be racing heart could desire.
