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

Review This Haunt
  • Email Verified Absolutely amazing

    It was absolutely amazing. The indoor maze construction was pretty creepy. It had many wrong turns and tight corridors, wherein every wrong step will take you closer to what you fear the most. In one instance, I was chased by a grotesque character. The actors were amazing. Their makeup and costumes were spot-on. Well worth the admission price. I would recommend this to everyone.

  • Had a blast

    It was real carnage in the basement. It was set completely indoor and the maze was exciting. Was there with my friends and had a blast. The actors performed well as the serial killers on the prowl. The maze was confusing. It had plenty of wrong turns and corridors. Interactive enough to make things interesting. The guide appointed to us was friendly helpful person. He got us with all the scares and never missed one. A great way to spend an evening.

  • Email Verified Wonderful time

    Had a wonderful time at the basement and we had fun. Was there last weekend. It was heavily crowded and had to wait for hours in the line. The serial killers nailed it. You get to feel the pangs as you enter the maze. It was creatively designed and made to look haunted. We were clever enough but the actors outsmarted us. It took a while to figure out the right corridor. Completely indoors and beautifully set we had a fun filled evening.

  • Email Verified My favorite

    Maze is one of my favorite haunts and never miss any that comes up in my neighborhood. The basement was exclusively themed on a maze and it was fantastic. Checked it out along with a couple of my friends. The actors were in rampage. They executed the thrills really well and it reached its audience with great impact. We were terrified half way through. And, to find the way out was a mammoth task. The monsters were dressed to kill. They had the makeup and attire on and it is fiery and gruesome. Resembled the ones from the horror movies. 4 stars.

  • Had a great time

    I and my nieces had a great time in the haunt. The guides were phenomenal. Scare factor was above par. My nieces both screamed non-stop in the maze. It had quite a bit of wrong turns, and we had a hard time finding the way out. Scares were well timed and executed. I had no clue. Costumes of actors looked realistic. Worth the time and money. Definitely, I will visit again next year. Highly recommend this one.

  • Bone-chilling terror moments

    Quite fantastic! I can’t recollect even a single dull moment in the Basement. I and wife had a blast. The scares were interactive and timed to perfection. We often hit the dead ends, and right in front of those masked killers. She screamed many times. In the tight corners, you might have to push them away to find your way through. Pretty creepy setting as well. If you are looking for some bone-chilling terror moments, this is the one.

  • Scary experience

    Great scary experience. Creepy to get us crawling. It was thrilling to find new paths, devising strategies to get to the exit.

  • Email Verified Freaked out!!

    Pretty creepy and interactive. There was thrills and scares in every square inch. All the scariest masked killers from the horror movies were present in the maze. Few of the jump scares actually freaked me out. We both exited with our hearts pounding.
