A new creepy, Christmas-themed haunted house debuts in December 2018

A new creepy, Christmas-themed haunted house will unleash evil elves, scary snowmen and the “king of Christmas nightmares.” The crew behind New Orleans Nightmare will transform its Halloween haunt into Krampus: A Haunting Christmas on Dec. 7 and Dec. 8.

The chilling, Christmas experience will bring the story of a Christmas demon, Krampus, to life through an interactive haunted house. Visitors who loved getting spooked during Halloween can get scared all over again this holiday season.

According to the website, design teams have transformed the haunted house to “resemble your sweetest holiday memories” with a dash of holiday horror to rework “your favorite Christmas characters into your worst nightmare.”

The holiday haunt also brings along a horrifying backstory for visitors to experience.

Krampus: A Haunted Christmas features Krampus as the “demonic beast of Christmas” who is dressed up like Santa Claus but “looking for kids to snatch up in his sack,” the website reveals. Haunted house producers also say evil elves are part of the holiday haunted attraction who lure guests in before snatching them up for Krampus.

The new attraction will also trade out photos with Santa for photos with Krampus, along with Christmas treats.

New Orleans Nightmare is behind bringing the Christmas-themed haunted house to life this holiday season. The crew debuted a new attraction for the 2018 Halloween season at the site previously occupied by the House of Shock.

The parent company, Thirteenth Floor Entertainment Group, is a Halloween-themed entertainment company behind several haunted houses across the country. The company currently produces haunted houses in more than a dozen national locations including San Antonio; Austin, Texas; Nashville, Tenn.; Chicago and Los Angeles, among others.

New Orleans Nightmare is located at 319 Butterworth Street in Jefferson, near the Huey P. Long Bridge.

General admission tickets start at $24.99. Fast pass and skip the line tickets are also available for additional fees.
