Krampus Haunted Christmas Event Comes To 8 States This December

13th Floor Entertainment Group brings ‘A Haunted Christmas’ featuring Krampus to indulge guests in search of a demonic holiday experience.

Krampus: A Haunted Christmas

The 13th Floor Entertainment Group will be hosting its unique ‘A Haunted Christmas’ events on select dates in December at eight cities nationwide. The events differ slightly from location to location, but all are centered around the evil Krampus and his terrifying colleagues. Each is a uniquely ghoulish Christmas experience. These events take place at 13th Floor Haunted Houses in Austin, Chicago, Columbus, Denver, Jacksonville, New Orleans, Nashville, and Houston. Details of each event are listed below.

This special Christmas-time event is based on a monster called Krampus, the King of Christmas Nightmares. The beast, assisted by the Evil Elves, tries to catch kids and put them into his sack. Krampus has long, sharp claws, sharp teeth, towering horns, and blood-red eyes. He always screams the name of each child before trying to snare them. To lure unsuspecting victims, Krampus offers Christmas treats…and his sack can accommodate many unlucky children.

All of the haunted houses have Christmas lights, monsters, elves, and other features of a demonic Christmas season. At each venue, guests can have their picture taken in the Haunted Christmas photo booth alongside evil creatures and enjoy a variety of Christmas treats. Watch out for those, though, as Krampus may be lurking nearby. Another attraction at some venues is the ‘Sensory Overload’ experience. Guests enter a dark room and must find their way using sound, smell, and touch to squeeze through awkward spaces and escape. Most venues also have mini-escape rooms, several have axe-throwing attractions, and three have bars for guests over 21. The Sensory Overload, mini-escape rooms, and axe-throwing are add-ons to the admission cost.

Note: These Krampus events may be too intense for young children and are not recommended for children under 12 years of age.
