The Haunted Hydro is an entire PARK dedicated to SCARY fun for ALL!

As we celebrate our 26 years of FRIGHT done RIGHT we have themed the park the “FREAKS come out at NIGHT” this year. Plan on arriving early so you can catch our traditional and amazing GHOUL-A-BRATION opening show that begins at 7:00pm nightly and features Music, Dancing, Fire, Parade of Ghouls and more!

This year we are featuring 2 main professional Hollywood-style state-of-the-art HAUNTED HOUSES….

The infamous “HAUNTED HYDRO” which has a theme this year of “HYDRO of the DAMMED” – We are taking the HYDRO back to it’s INDUSTRIAL roots when it was an actual POWER PLANT used by the City for more than 30 years. There is currently a LARGE LEGAL BATTLE in our city about whether to KEEP or TEAR DOWN the BALLVILLE DAM that is just up the river from the HYDRO and actually fed the water to the HYDRO to generate the power over 75 years ago now… This HYDRO has been completely re-designed to give the look and feel of a CREEPY abandoned Power Plant that has been left in ruins and yes… you GUESSED IT… is inhabited by un-wanted beings from this world and the next…!!!!!

Our 2nd attraction is the NEW “CARNI-VILLE of FREAKS” – Imagine if you will… entering a complete THROWBACK in TIME Carnival and Amusement Park event unlike anything you have ever seen before… from BIG BERTHA’S FUN-HOUSE to the GAMES of DARE and SKILL to the FREAK-SHOW stage to the wooded walk-path to the forsaken CARNIE CAMP and GRAVEYARD where they bury all the losers… and MORE… as always at the HYDRO… EXPECT the UNEXPECTED… and PREPARE for SCARE!


This seasons SIDE ATTRACTIONS include:
NEW – The TORTURE CHAMBER – High-Speed Escape Room – Patrons have 5-minutes to find the puzzle pieces to complete the puzzle and win a PRIZE all the while a video is giving them clues and a LIVE Monster will be interacting with them as well…!

Many photo’s are for sale and we allow all visitors to vote for their favorite images and award the winning Photographer a special award at the end of the season. The MUSEUM features 25 years of HYDRO memorabilia from over the seasons – All FREE with admission

Crazy Bob’s Shirt Shack & Gift Shop – Totally remodeled and featuring NEW and EXCITING Halloween specialty Gifts, Candles, Shirts, Creepy Cards, Deadworld Soda Pop, Deadly Grounds Coffee and much, much more this year!

Review This Haunt
  • The Fun Time Experience

    Wow!! By far the best haunted houses I have ever been to in my life. Here you get to do multiple things to do just apart from getting scared. They even organize competitions which I am looking forward to this year. The owners, the cast, the crew, everything was over the top. They had two escape rooms. Crazy Bob and Beth were just amazing. It is a top rated haunted house for all those haunts lovers. I would love to go back again.

    Our visit to the haunted Hydro was so much fun and entertaining and a complete different experience. Starting from the actors, the staff, props, costume, makeup, effects all go hand in hand and are just too perfect. The actors were looking like real life ghosts with fiery eyes. It was completely horrifying. The hallway was pitch dark and that is what scares you even more. Each of the attraction lasted about 20 minutes and these 20 minutes were the most terrifying and enjoying minutes of my life. These people are absolutely great at haunting.

  • A Fun Time with lots to do#

    What I like about the Hydro is the fact that there is multiple things to do there. This year they have 2 escape rooms, a fortune teller, an air brush artist, a food truck, a gift shop full of odd and meat trinkets and two completely different haunts to go through. Other haunts it is show up, wait in a long line, go through and then you are done. The price wasn't bad. I know people don't like the idea of $20 but it includes all of what I said above plus I got a $3 off coupon at a friendship gas station do it was only $17. For a haunted attraction it's the regular standard price you will pay :) The environment is cool. Right along the river and going through the woods and and old Hydro electric power plant. Fasinating. The makeup was really well f one and the acting was good. People need to remember it's harder to scare people these days because we are so used to this gory stuff so for their Part they do a very great job! The staff was very nice and answered all my questions. I would really recommend to someone else and remind them to keep an open Mind. :) Love the place.
