Journey into the realm of darkness in this haunted house and allow yourself to be truly terrified. Encounter creatures and lords of the dark as you descend deeper into their world and find your way through a maze of labyrinths and chambers whilst running for your life. On top of this gruesome experience, you can also head to the escape rooms where you have 60 minutes to escape from your own grave.
Open from 27th-31st October 2018 at 1072 Budapest, Rákóczi út 30
