Art of Fear

Since 2005 we have been terrifying the Twin Cities with absurdist psychological horror. This is an adults-only (18+) haunted experience.

What to Expect

The Haunted Basement is a basement, it's deliciously moist. Expect strong smells, physical contact, and projectile liquids. You may get very messy, you may have to crawl, and you may find yourself in a confined space with something horrible.

What to Wear

The Haunted Basement is a great place to take a date. However, it is a bad idea to show up in nice clothes. They will get dirty. Make sure your shoes are closed toed. Don't wear heels.

What to Bring

Make sure you bring a valid ID. No one under 18 is allowed in. Leave your bags at home, if you don't need it, don't bring it. Also bring a good attitude, prepare to scream, laugh, and for your skin to crawl.

It's a pro move to bring a jacket, the basement can get cold and there is a complimentary coat check.
