The New Orleans-based House of Shock Haunted House and Halloween Festival is back for its 25th season! Originally set to close the doors after the 2014 season, The House of Shock has been given new life thanks to a spirited response from the local community. It returns on Friday, October 6th and runs on select nights through Halloween night.

For 2017, The House of Shock features 3 world-class haunted attractions in one location! Laff in the Dark is an all-out 3D clown assault: a nod to old school fun houses, specifically the Pontchartrain Beach Fun House of the same name. Clown-a-phobiacs beware, as Laff in the Dark has more scares per square foot than any other event of its kind. The House of Shock's main attraction has been totally renovated with great care taken to create a whole new experience while holding true the classics that made The House of Shock unique. Finally, we have an attraction so new that it doesn't have a name at the time of this posting - stay tuned!!

As always, the importance of incorporating New Orleans' own dark history into the fabric of their event is continued. This may be best represented by the immense brand new entrance constructed to pay homage to the infamous LeBeau Mansion – the Old Arabi plantation home that burnt to the ground in 2013.

In addition to the new attractions, some old fan-favorites of the unique event have received extreme makeovers. The pyrotechnics show will be back with more firepower than ever.

The updated theatrical stage production will take place twice a night at approximately 7:45 pm & 10:15 pm.

The annual outdoor Haloween Festival offers live music every night with a full service bar and an extensive menu of concessions available at Hell's Kitchen.
