Ruby Falls’ Haunted Cavern: Dates: Sept. 30-Oct 31st, Fri-Sun
This year marks the 13th year Ruby Falls has played host to the truly terrifying Haunted Cavern. This year’s theme is “Flesh Farm.” The set up is a world thrust in chaos due to infections. Matron Mojo has formed her own society that seeks to feed on the madness. Her Revenants now hunt the living to satisfy their sinister zombie urges. The Haunted Cavern experience takes place both above and below ground. It is considered one of the best haunted attractions in the area. In fact, it was listed as the #4 National Haunt by Buzzfeed and was also honored as a 2016 Top 20 Event by the Southeast Tourism Society.
