Located in the DEAD CENTER of Gatlinburg is a sit-down attraction so frightening, so mind-numbingly terrifying, that even a Viking would weep at the mere suggestion of experiencing it.

Even more awesome than Earthquake The Ride, is:

Hauntings
05P3052489.JPG
"Here we have created, brick by brick, stone by stone, one of the world's most mysterious haunted attractions."
08P3052497.JPG
"We have visited many ghostly sites, and collected some of the most evil artifacts imaginable: the steering wheel from Hitler's staff car, the left-turn signal from Charles Manson's VW, the windshield wipers from that car that played Knight Rider."
15P3052476.JPG
"Knight Rider wasn't evil."

"His windshield wipers were. It didn't come up much in the show though."
25P3052479.JPG
"Experience awesome action as objects and ghostly figures come to life in this spectacular and mysterious adventure."
27P3052478.JPG
"Join us as we make contact from beyond the grave."
30P3052492.JPG
"You haven't lived 'til we've scared you to death!"

Seriously, this is one of the greatest things ever. You sit on benches in a tiny room while furniture slides back and forth on tracks and an animatronic head drones on like a retarded child making up a horror story by repeating things he's seen on The Twilight Zone.

Then, just when it couldn't get any cheesier, some actually-pretty-cool stuff happens.

I loved it.

I did Hauntings several years ago. It was a cool little show, glad to see it still there.

Really enjoying seeing all the attractions around the Smokeys. Haven't been there in about 10 years .

The official adult price is $7.99, but it's only $3.00 for Sevier Country residents.

I will be in the Smokey Mountains/Pigeon Forge area this August for a week long vacation. All of these updates are really getting me excited. Thanks so much for the photos and information!

I know more about donkeys than women!

Man, it looks like the honeymoon capitol of the south has stepped it up a notch! Hauntings looked pretty fun. Great stuff as always!
Beer... It helps coasters go higher and faster!
