What you’ll find now is an entirely new experience sure to leave a lasting impression on your nightmares with three haunted houses in 2021 including the All New The Abyss.
When you enter, you’ll find yourself trapped in The Compound where the monsters have taken over and now reside. If you’re able to escape, the next horror in store for you is the home of the new leader of the grounds. Welcome to Sketchy’s Chambers. Finally, you’ve escaped only to find yourself lost in The Abyss. Think you’ve got what it takes?
