Orlando is one of the world’s most popular destinations during the Halloween season thanks to the world famous Halloween Horror Nights event at Universal Orlando. But Halloween Horror Nights is far from the only fright that Orlando has to offer. Legends: A Haunting at Old Town is a unique, year-round haunted attraction that you can visit any time of year, and this small Old Town attraction is punching way above its weight it terms of excitement per dollar.
Legends: A Haunting at Old Town challenges guests to enter the halls of Ashdown and Son’s Undertakers. As the new attraction’s story goes, the mortuary was established in 1889 by Archibald Ashdown, an unscrupulous undertaker who drummed up business by poisoning perfectly healthy townsfolk and interring them alive while their unsuspecting loved ones paid prime dollar for inflated funeral expenses.
Fast forward to the present: Ashdown’s evil deeds have awakened something dark within the mortuary. Now, the dead won’t stay dead and Ashdown’s victims are returning to exact their revenge upon the Ashdowns—and anyone else they may find roaming within the mortuary halls.
The haunted house is unique in that it takes you through an entire story line, start to finish. Rather than shock you with a combination of random gore and scares, Legends utilizes fantastic acting and state of the art effect to immerse you in a place that has history and characters. It shows that the haunt’s creators care about the experience, and guests leave the haunted attraction feeling like they’ve just returned from another world.
One of the best parts? You enjoy a truly one-of-a-kind scare experience for fraction of the price of some the larger Halloween events. Tickets run for just $15 per person at the box office, with a separate 90-minute tour available for $20 per person.
