  • Complete Haunted House For Sale

    For Sale – Operational Haunted House
    After 11 seasons, we have decided to permanently close our haunted house. We started as a hobby business and for enjoyment. We have grown both our attraction and attendance over the years but due to family and career conflicts, we have chosen to make 2021 our final season.

    We are open to two options for sales currently. One for the haunted house business, in its current location with the property, all props, intellectual property, etc. We also are open to selling all contents, intellectual property, etc without the property.


    Our haunted house is located in a town of 5000-6000 per year in central Indiana. We are located about an hour drive from large metropolitan areas. Our attendance has varied between 1000 and 1500 in the past 5 years with minimal advertising efforts. There is growth potential in our market. Our nearest competitor is of comparable size and about 15 miles away.

    We are currently occupying 3300 SqFt with another ~900 SqFt under roof that has been utilized before and could be utilized again.

    We do have a grandfathered Indiana entertainment permit for operating a haunted attraction. It is exempt from the need for a sprinkler system and alarm system. This is tied to the current structure and is not transferable to other structures. This would only be sold if the haunt is purchased with the structure.

    Below will be the contents/property but for everything as it is with the property, we are asking $95,000 but open to offers. We would like to see a haunted house remain in our community so will work with a buyer. We are not interested in a contract sale though. We would be willing to provide assistance and guidance in setting up and operating for the first year if the buyer was interested.


    While this is not a complete list, below are many of the notable things that the buyer will be purchases. Our props currently fill a 3300 SqFt attraction but could easily occupy much more with all that is stored.

    I have tried to list as many of the major items as I can think of but there is so much that we will continue to add to the list as we come up with things.
    We are more than willing to give you a tour of our current operation and storage areas to view the items for yourself. Also, if you purchase, depending on your location, we may be able to come onsite for 1-3 days to answer any questions that you may have.

    All items will need moved but cannot be moved until after 10/31/2021 as we are operating until then. We can assist some with tear down / carry-out / loading of the items, this will be the primary responsibility of the purchaser. We are unable/unwilling to provide any type of shipping.

    Additionally, at this time, we are not interested in parting out the haunted house. We would like to sell all items together.

    We are asking $25,000 OBO for everything listed above (not real estate). You should have almost everything needed to setup and begin operating. Depending on your structure/layout, you may need some additional walls.

    If you are interested in learning more, please call or text Kegan at 812-699-0628. I prefer text but if you do call and do not get an answer, please leave me a VM. I will try to call you back as soon as possible.
