3 Haunted Christmas Attractions in Indiana to Visit This Year

Even though Halloween is now behind us, who said Christmas time couldn’t be a little spooky?

One of the highlights of the Halloween season is visiting haunted houses. The thrill of the unknown things that might come up, being scared, and really, laughing at everyone around you freaking out is so much fun. These haunted house events only last a few weeks each year leading up to Halloween. However, there are a few Christmas-themed haunted houses that pop up during the holidays that offer the same thrills, but with a Christmas twist. What’s cool is that I just found three here in Indiana that you need to visit this year.

Indiana Christmas 2022 Haunted Attractions

I saw a post yesterday for one of these haunted Christmas attractions, and started looking to see if there were any more. While there’s a good chance there are more Christmas haunted houses in Indiana, the following three are the only ones I could find information on. Let’s take a look, shall we?

When you try to think of something spooky related to Christmas, one thing comes to mind: Krampus. Popular European legend, Krampus, is a half-goat, half-demon monster on a mission to punish misbehaving children at Christmas. This brings us to the first two haunted attractions.

“The Curse of Krampus” from Necropolis Underground Haunted Attraction

Located in Indianapolis, Necropolis Underground Haunted Attraction will host “The Curse of Krampus”. The event will take place on December 10 and 17. According to them Facebook page:

This will be our biggest Christmas event yet! Krampus looks and he’s not happy with you! It brings Jack’d Frost, Creepy Santa, Rabid Elves, Crusty Gingerbread and much more!!

Krampus Haunt at Culbertson Mansion

New Albany, Indiana is home to the Culbertson mansion. This historic mansion hosts a haunted house every year, and this year they’ll be adding a new tradition: Christmas with Krampus. Krampus Haunt will take place on December 16 and 17, and you can find out more in the post below.

“Christmas Chaos” by Malice Manor

Clarksville, Indiana, just outside of Louisville will have its own Christmas haunted house. “Christmas Chaos” at Malice Manor will take place on December 9 and 10. According to Facebook event page:

Christmas mayhem at Malice Manor! Lord Rancor is somewhat holiday-related. The island of misfit toys uses the mansion to plot their Christmas revenge. Just two nights to catch the evil elf’s frost, and maybe catch a glimpse of the curmudgeon’s diabolical plan!

Are you brave enough to add some scares to the happy season? If so, you should definitely plan to attend one of these haunted attractions. As previously stated, chances are there will be more Christmas-themed haunted attractions in Indiana this year. If I missed any, please let me know, and I’ll add them to this list.

40 Real Indiana Towns With Quirky, Weird, and Funny Names

Outside of the big cities, Hoosier State is full of tiny little towns that you’ve probably passed through on your way to one of these towns. Most of them are probably between 100 and 150 years old, or even older, and have been around much longer than major metropolitan areas such as Indianapolis, Fort Wayne, South Bend, and Evansville. As a rule, they were started by the first settlers who found their way to the state and decided to return home. Eventually others joined in and a community was formed. Over time, as the surrounding areas developed, most of them were incorporated into those areas and governed by the nearest city or county governing body, making them officially “unincorporated”, meaning they did not have their own formally organized municipal government.

Scroll down Wikipedia’s long list unincorporated communities in Indiana shows that several of them have names that by today’s standards would be considered bizarre, eccentric, or just plain funny. These are my 40 favorites.
