The Mortuary is an icon of old New Orleans located at the dead end of world famous Canal Street. Less than 3 miles from the French Quarter on the Cemetery Streetcar line, the mansion was originally built in 1872 and operated for about 80 years as an actual MORTUARY. The property is surrounded by actual graveyards known in New Orleans as “The Cities Of The Dead.” Add to what is undoubtedly a very scary environment to begin with, state of the art animatronics, theatrical sets, movie quality makeup, over-the-top special effects, unusual themes and details adds up to experiencing one of the most terrifying Halloween haunts ever. It has been heralded as one of the top, most realistic, Hollywood style destination haunted attractions in the world, year after year! Every season, this innovative horror experience continues to draw tens of thousands of thrill seekers anxious to see what new fright-mares have been unleashed!
Scout Island Scream Park
Just two weeks later, on October 5, New Orleans’ newest Halloween attraction opens Scout Island Scream Park. “Land of terror,” Island of horrors” are only a few terms to describe Scout Island Scream Park which gets ready to open in October in New Orleans City Park. With the help of The Mortuary Haunted Mansion, the island located in the park just North of I-610 will become “more than a just a haunted house, but a thrill-seeker’s dream or nightmare,” promises Bob Becker, City Park CEO.
The idyllic island will offer several thrill themed zones starting with Cirque du Fear, a sort “circus freak show” which will of course feature scary clowns, the Blood Bayou Fright zone will test your nerves with scary skeleton pirates and at the Zombie Outbreak Battlefield you’ll get a chance to shoot zombies using laser technology. If that’s not enough , you can go on the Devil’s Swamp Tour, visit the Scream Factory or the Horseman’s Fright Zone. The project, which has been in the making for about two years, is “something the city has not seen before,” says Jeff Borne owner of the Mortuary Haunted House. If you do not have nerves of steel, there are some scare free options during daylight hours including the Haunted Hayride or the Kids Zone.
