NEW ORLEANS (press release) – Peaceful sleep will soon become a distant memory this Halloween as New Orleans Nightmare rises from the dead and returns for the 2021 season. Due to Hurricane Ida, New Orleans Nightmare is now open on select nights Oct. 1 through Nov. 6. The New Orleans haunt is one of 13 national attractions produced by Thirteenth Floor Entertainment Group (13FEG), the world’s largest Halloween-inspired entertainment company. With over 25,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor innovative horror experiences, movie-quality sets, and premier special effects unrivaled in the Big Easy, this haunted attraction is sure to frighten even the bravest of visitors.

“We’ve all missed out on so much this past year” says Chris Stafford, CEO and founding partner of Thirteenth Floor Entertainment Group. “We want our patrons to break away from their sofas and small screens to enjoy an unforgettable, Hollywood-level Halloween experience in one of the world’s most haunted cities.”

The haunt returns this year with three new horrifying themed attractions: The Boogeyman, Operation: Laughing Place, and the Spirit of Halloween. New Orleans Nightmare will once again offer its signature attraction, PHOBIA SENSORY OVERLOAD, mini escape games, as well as a concession stand and full bar to provide guests with a little liquid courage before entering at their own risk.
