Scaredown Facebook page

I am a big fan of Halloween and scary movies so I’ve been to a lot of haunted houses in my time.  In my experience, they usually involve somebody clutching onto you as you guide them through a semi-dark maze that is dotted with dizzying strobe lights and lots of plastic body parts soaked in fake blood while people in creepy clown masks or mad scientists jump out at you from various hidden corners.

But then there is SCAREDOWN, located in Waynesville, OH.  SCAREDOWN is not your typical haunted house. According to their web site, their goal is to “make you lose control of every bodily function you have.”
