PRESS RELEASE: The Nightmare of Dread Hollow Returns on September 28th

CHATTANOOGA (September 13, 2018) -

Experience horror on another level as the award-winning team behind Dread Hollow returns with three terrifying new haunts intertwined into one nightmare. The haunt in the mythic town of Dread Hollow begins September 28 and runs every Thursday – Sunday through October and Halloween night.  The 29,000 square foot location in Lookout Valley includes newly developed areas of town for this year’s ominous storylines. “A fright-filled night at Dread Hollow is a Chattanooga tradition. Visitors come back year after year, knowing we unleash all-new petrifying storylines, characters and professional sets each fall. It’s always a new terrifying experience.” shares Ruby Falls President, Hugh Morrow.  The team behind Dread Hollow, have created haunted attractions named as a top 10 scare in the nation and consistently listed as a top 20 event in the Southeast.

Make your way through the ominous town built on tainted soil to the Belle Royale Hotel as a paranormal investigative team unearths evidence of harrowing supernatural activity from a scorned bride and other tormented souls eternally doomed. Stumble into the seemingly idyllic Harley Farm where darkness and evil extract a bloody price for Ezra Harley’s desperate decision. Just when you think it’s safe to open your eyes, find yourself in the abandoned fairgrounds of the cursed Brine Bros. Circus, where banished sideshow freaks beckon you to forever join them in their Cirque de Fatale. You can run, but there’s nowhere to hide from the sinister darkness. 

 “Dread Hollow 2018 delves into storylines and physical spaces that are a part of most folks’ worst nightmares with extensive new areas of the town that will push you way passed your comfort zone” explains Todd Patton, Fear Connection’s co-creator of Dread Hollow.   Also new this year is the introduction of two, separately ticketed extreme escape rooms designed for 2 – 4 people.  One room is shrouded in 100% darkness and participants only have 5 minutes to break free. The second escape room gives participants 15-minutes to escape from notorious serial killer, Eugene Todd. Both rooms come with a warning to expect dirt, grime, blood and slime to play a role in getaway attempts.
