The Dark Legacy of Elder Shaw themes this year’s Haunted Cavern at Ruby Falls for its 11th season, opening Friday and Saturday, Sept.

26 and 27, every Friday-Sunday, beginning Oct. 3 till Nov. 1, as well as Oct. 9. Get in line by 7:30 p.m. nightly for the Freak Parade if you dare. From the moment you step out of your car, the terror begins. This is no ordinary haunted house with predictable turns and typical monsters. This is a cave, with one way out. Experience the Hellevator and prepare for ultimate fear factors.

 2014 marks the 64th anniversary of the massacre of the mining town of Carrion Ridge. This was the last known settlement visited by the infamous Elder Shaw’s Miraculous Medicine Show. Citizens here became hostile and an outbreak turned the townspeople into mindless fiends. Elder Shaw peddled “Legacy Tonic – a cure-all for the ages.” The tonic’s side effects included the amplification of savage, murderous behavior. Now 64 years later, the town comes back to life, hunting any trespassers!

Ruby Falls Haunted Cavern has been in the national spotlight most recently on Buzzfeed, listed fourth as a “terrifying haunted house to see before you die.” To check out all the gruesome details and background info on this season’s characters, as well as online discounts, go to www.hauntedcavern.com. Parental discretion is advised.
