Think you know The Basement? Think again! It changes every year...

In the Fall of 2019, Americans raided Area 51, longed believed to be the place where the US government housed proof of alien lifeforms. But what they found when they stormed the gates was much more sinister. Inside Area 51 were hundreds of quarantined Americans infected with a virus that rendered them clinically dead, yet still walking around as if alive, craving human flesh. Once breached, Area 51 could no longer contain the virus or those infected. Many of the people there, fell prey to the infected. In herds, they traveled across the US feeding on the flesh of those unlucky enough to be in their path.

Many people, frightened for their lives, retreated to local fall out shelters in search of safety. The people of Ahoskie were no different. As instructed, they retreated to the basement of their local town hall, until there was no more room to spare. Many perished for lack of safe refuge. Unfortunately, some of those who found refuge were already infected. And the infection spread. Now, it is uncertain how many survivors, if any, are left in The Basement.

In an attempt to rescue the uninfected and dispose of those who have “turned”, the Centers For Disease Control will launch a rescue mission for the townspeople of Ahoskie. On October 18, 19, 20, 25, 26, 31 and November 1 – 3, they will unseal The Basement and attempt to contain the outbreak. They are asking for brave citizens to come out and be deputized to assist in this mission. They are urging all who agree to understand that this is a very dangerous mission and their outcome will be uncertain. Are you brave enough to face the uncertainty of death and the horrors contained in The Basement? Will you survive or will you leave infected? Only time will tell… Email Haunt Owner
Special "Lights Out" night on Nov 3. Tour the basement with only a single flashlight.

  • Email Verified Amazing Haunt for a Worthy Cause

    The Basement: Contagion, at the Town Hall in Ahoskie, NC is fraught with the types of unexpected scares that make a Haunt worthwhile. Around every corner, something (or someone!) unanticipated awaits in this terrifyingly real Area 51/Undead mashup. Whether as a group or as a solitary VIP experience, The Basement delivers on the expectations of a haunted attraction, and then some. Not only is it very much worth the ticket price, the proceeds go to the Ahoskie Food Pantry! To miss out on this Haunt would be akin to missing out on the best seasonal attraction for hundreds of miles!
