Haunted House Highlights: Factory of Terror

What do you get when you combine an abandoned aluminum foundry with mirror mazes, creatures of the night and gory decorations? Ohio's largest haunted house in Canton!

The Factory of Terror utilizes 160,000 square feet of space for an hour-long haunted house experience. Many visitors have exited the haunted house mid-way through, too scared to make it to the end.

The haunt features five different attractions. Guests start at the Asylum, filled with deranged patients and the first mirror maze ever constructed in U.S. haunted houses. Next is the Industrial Nightmare, featuring dangerous pieces from the original factory used to attack victims. Make it out alive and visitors are faced with another maze in the pitch-black Labryinth of Darkness. The Massacre on Mahoning is up next, which takes a treacherous journey through the former mansion of Mr. Terniz, the founder of the factory. Legend is that Mr. Terniz moved in to the factory to keep a close watch on his workers, but after experiencing a mental breakdown he went on a killing rampage and built his own personal cemetery confined within the walls of his mansion. Finally, guests will venture into the House of Nightmares, filled with blood, guts, gore and nightmarish creatures.

Tickets cost $26 for general admission and $36 for FASTpass admission. The haunt is open weekends through Nov. 1.

Ready to see if you can conquer this massive haunted house? Then head over to Factory of Terror this Halloween -- if you dare!

Haunted House Highlights: Haunted Prison Experience

The Ohio State Reformatory, more commonly known as the Mansfield Reformatory, is a historic prison and a notoriously haunted building in Ohio. Stories abound of tortured spirits and ex-guards who remained trapped within the prison walls.

With once inhumane conditions and brutal treatment of prisoners, it's no surprise that Mansfield Reformatory is one of the most haunted places in the state.

The Mansfield Reformatory begins a truly haunted experience each fall as the Haunted Prison Experience takes shape inside. During the 45-minute haunt, guests will explore the darkened cellblocks and hallways while experiencing in-your-face thrills from actors and animatronic monsters. Spooky lighting and a spine-tingling soundtrack complete the haunted experience.

Who knows, maybe you'll even encounter an actual ghost during your haunted house journey!

Tickets cost $18 per person or $28 for a speedpass, which allows you to jump to the front of the line. Guests must be 13 years or older to enter. The haunt is open through Nov. 1.

Haunted House Highlights: Carnival of Horrors

A large majority of people have a phobia of clowns. I'm definitely one of them. From their ghoulish makeup to their menacing smiles, clowns are enough to give you nightmares.

If you're ready to face your fear of clowns, or you're just a glutton for punishment, head to Blossom Music Center for its annual Carnival of Horrors.

Carnival of Horrors offers four haunted attractions. Guests start out at the Fun House, which is brimming with creepy clowns, then move on to the Wicked Woods where they're handed only a flashlight to help light their path. If you make it out of the woods, you'll venture into the Insane Asylum where the inmates run wild, and finally into the Freakshow in 3D Terrorvision.

Tickets purchased online cost $20 for general admission and $24 for a speed pass admission, which allows you to skip to the front of the line at each attraction. Tickets purchased at the venue cost $21 for general admission and $25 for a speed pass. The haunt is open weekends through Nov. 1.

Haunted House Highlights: Nightmare in the Wilderness

The woods are a common setting in horror movies. As nighttime falls and fog rolls in, you never know what may be lurking around the trees up ahead. A haunted house in Lodi has utilized the eerie setting of the woods and combined it with a local urban legend to create Nightmare in the Wilderness.

As the legend goes, about 150 years ago the Smith family once lived in an old farm house situated on an apple orchard near Medina. A stranger appeared in town one day and was drawn to the Smith house. The next morning, the family, and the stranger, were all found dead. The family and the stranger were buried in a forest just past the apple orchard. Although the Smith house has since been torn down, till this day apparitions can be seen roaming the forest and forsaken orchard.

After being told this ghostly story, visitors at Nightmare in the Wilderness are taken on a 1/2 mile hayride out into the haunted forest and left to fend for themselves. More than 80 beasts, clowns, monsters and surprises await along the Psycho Path. If you survive the trail, a wagon will take you back to the Apple Cabin for some much needed refreshments and treats.

The haunt has been in business since 1993. Many of the dedicated actors have been working at the haunted house for more than seven years, allowing them to perfect their costumes, makeup and scares!

Tickets cost $17 for adults and $12 for children. Children ages 5 and under are free. The haunt accepts cash only! Nightmare in the Wilderness is open Fridays and Saturdays through Halloween.

Nightmare in the Wilderness hours:
Fridays and Saturdays from 7:30 p.m.-midnight

Nightmare in the Wilderness is at 7665 Lafayette Road in Lodi.

Haunted House Highlights: Bloodview

Halloween is right around the corner, which means haunted houses are popping up all over the city. Over the next couple weeks, I'll be highlighting some of the creepiest, ghoulish and most sinister haunted houses Northeast Ohio has to offer.

First up, a personal favorite of mine: Bloodview.

The scares at Bloodview begin the moment you step foot outside your car. A handful of actors course through the waiting lines, scaring countless customers who are waiting to go inside the first house. I've even seen people chased throughout the parking lot!

Bloodview is built and staffed by The Legion of Terror, the world's oldest improvisational horror acting, makeup and special FX production company. You won't find any cheap masks at this haunted house. Each actor designs and perfects his or her own character, complete with clothing, wigs and special effects makeup, to make you scream.

Bloodview is an interactive haunted house, which means the actors may touch you. To keep things interesting, the haunt puts on a different theme each weekend (The Witch Trials are this weekend, followed by The Zombie Hordes and finally All Hell Breaks Loose). Bloodview is comprised of three attractions: The Gorehouse, the outdoor Haunted Wooded Path and finally the Main House.

Bloodview also is fully nonprofit. The actors are all volunteers and the Broadview Heights Lions Club, which sponsors the haunted house, donates profits to charity. 

Admission is $20 on Fridays and Saturdays and $10 on Sundays. The haunt is open until Nov. 1.

Bloodview Haunted House hours:
Fridays and Saturdays from 8 p.m.-midnight
Sundays from 8-10 p.m.

Bloodview is located at 1010 Towpath Trail in Broadview Heights.

2nd annual Cleveland Kurentovanje

Photo courtesy Cleveland Kurentovanje
The St. Clair-Superior neighborhood was once a thriving hub of Slovenian life, filled with Slovenian businesses, churches and restaurants. Recently there has been a movement to restore some of the culture to that neighborhood. Last year a group of community members organized the first ever Cleveland Kurentovanje and the festival returns this Saturday.

Kurentovanje is the most popular carnival event in Slovenia and has been celebrated for more than 50 years. More than 100,000 people typically attend the two-day celebration. The main figure of the carnival, the large and fuzzy Kurent, is believed to chase away winter and usher in spring.

Ten Kurents will be featured in this year's parade, which kicks off at noon at St. Vitus Church on Lausche Avenue and ends at the Slovenian National Home on St. Clair Ave. The parade will include polka music, marching bands, dance groups and people dressed in traditional clothing from Eastern Europe (visitors also are encouraged to dress in costume!) Prior to the start of the parade, stop by Collective Upcycle Boutique, 6202 St. Clair Ave., to enjoy some krofi, or Slovenian donuts, and coffee.

The party moves to the Slovenian National Home after the parade where guests can enjoy ethnic food, wine, beer and live music. The Slovenian Museum and Archives, along with local businesses, will be open all afternoon.

The after party takes place at Sterle's Country House on East 55th Street starting at 6 p.m. The Joey Tomsick Orchestra will perform live polka music until 10 p.m. and the bier garden will be open throughout the day. Come out and enjoy some schnitzel, a shot of Slivovitz and polka the night away!

Cleveland Kurentovanje hours:
Saturday, March 1 from 11 a.m. to midnight

Brite Winter

Cleveland has experienced a brutal winter this year. With below freezing temperatures and snow storms, most people would rather stay inside than venture out into the cold.

But there's another group of people living in Cleveland who want us to embrace the cold. And their idea has caught on, as thousands of people are expected to spend Saturday afternoon and evening outdoors for the Brite Winter festival.

Now in its fifth year, Brite Winter was created by a group of friends who realized there wasn't much to do in Cleveland during the wintertime and wanted to make a change. The festival celebrates music and art and helps to build a sense of community.

More than 70 local bands will perform on 10 stages throughout Ohio City. A variety of food trucks will be on site serving up warm food and drinks to fight the chill, and all local businesses will be open during the festivities. Local artists and galleries, as well as the Cleveland Institute of Art, will have creative and interactive artwork on display. There will also be a number of games on hand for guests of all ages, including skeeball, plinko and foosball.

A staple of Brite Winter each year is the Great Wall of Light. The wall, which stretches throughout Ohio City, is a collection of lamps, neon lights and lanterns that glows after the sun sets. Guests are encouraged to bring their own lights to add to the wall. At the close of each festival the lights are saved and stored to be used again the following year.

If that's still not enough to convince you to spend the day outside during Cleveland winter, the entire event is free!

Brite Winter hours:
Saturday, Feb. 15 from 4-11 p.m.

For more information or maps of the festivities, visit Brite Winter.
