Nightmare on Edgewood (1927 S. Meridian) opens for its 42nd season on Friday, Sept. 25. All 2020 attractions will adhere to health and safety guidelines.
New this year is THE CINEMA, where guests will find themselves stepping directly into their favorite scenes from iconic horror movies. Also new is CONLEY FARM, a dilapidated barnyard and stable crawling with violent and grossly deformed farmhands, the unfortunate victims of hazardous farming chemicals. At EDGEWOOD SANITARIUM, the doctors enforce inhumane practices as they work to “cure” the residents’ deranged minds, and the patients often riot in resistance. For an additional $5, guests can also experience SHADOWS ESCAPE, Indiana’s only 3D audio sensory experience.
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, and adhering to CDC and local health and guidelines, Nightmare on Edgewood has implemented the following measures for its 2020 season: all actors will adhere to temperature checks at clock in and will be wearing masks onsite, all guests will get temperature checks and must wear face masks upon entry, hand sanitizer stations will be available to customers onsite, ticket holders standing in line will be asked to stand six feet apart, limited capacity to maintain social distancing while guests are in the attractions, all ticket holders will only enter the haunt with members of their own group, and the Fast Pass line has been transitioned into a timed ticketing system. Guests purchasing a Fast Pass ticket will select a date and time for their arrival, and thus experience a significantly shorter wait to get in.

Established in 1978, this season marks Nightmare on Edgewood’s 42nd year in operation. The Cook brothers acquired the haunt in 2009 and continue to uphold its reputation as Indy’s Most Intense Haunted House. Nearly 50 volunteer actors occupy the halls of Nightmare on Edgewood each season, while an additional 12-15 staff (including volunteers from the Greenwood Fire Department) assist with parking, ticket sales, and general maintenance and management of the haunt.
“We are proud to be part of the legacy of Nightmare on Edgewood, bringing thrills and chills to the local community for more than four decades” said co-owner Paul Cook. His brother and co-owner Kevin Cook added, “The haunts continue to get bigger and better every year, and we appreciate each and every one of our patrons who come along for the ride – we don’t take it for granted and are committed to the health and safety of our guests above all else.”
