The Beast unleashes fear in all its forms!

Kansas City, Missouri has become a breeding ground for fear, thanks to the phobia-inducing masters or terror at The Beast – America’s largest haunted house. Offering several themed houses, these artisans of the unsettling have perfected the technique of tapping into your deepest, darkest fears.

If you suffer from athazagoraphobia – the fear of being lost or forgotten – you may find yourself at your wits’ end while touring The Beast. The Werewolf Forest, a 1/4 acre in size, requires you to find an exit in complete darkness, driving up every abandonment issue you could possibly have. You may find yourself wandering about the swamp, trying desperately to avoid the blood thirsty alligators that lie in wait, giving way to Herpetophobia, an irrational fear of reptiles.

At The Edge of Hell, a converted warehouse, you will come face-to-face with a live twenty foot anaconda – and an unhealthy dose of Ophidiophobia (fear of snakes) – as you work your way through uncounted horrors, culminating in a five story slide drop straight into the open arms of the Devil himself!

The Chambers of Edgar Allan Poe invites you to confront your fear of being buried alive – known as taphephobia – as the writings of the undisputed Master of the Macabre spring to life. The Raven, The House of Usher, The Black Cat and Rue Morgue are among the tales that put you through the horrifying experiences of suffocation, claustrophobia, and, yes – being buried alive.

For those who suffer from unnatural fear of living in a horror movie or nightmare, there’s Macabre Cinema. A terrifying adventure through a haunted 1930’s movie theater, you will find yourself front and center in more than thirty classic and contemporary horror scenes housed throughout the four story haunt. Don’t fear it – live it!
