  1. Nightmare on Edgewood

According to multiple reviews, this haunted house is the scariest horror attraction Indiana has to offer. This attraction is considered an extreme attraction, as it is full contact and all cast members can touch you- leading this to become the scariest and only attraction in Indy that offers this! With the price of admission, you are granted access to all three houses on property of different themes. After attending this attraction, you will surely agree that it is definitely Indy’s most extreme haunted attraction.
