The Third Degree of Terror is a free home haunt open three nights a year each October. The haunt is designed for all ages and contains detailed, realistic and immersive scenes, utilizing lighting, sound effects, and scents to full advantage.
When lightning flashed and thunder raged, Malachi Leeds stalked the night in search of helpless victims to prey upon. As summer storms lashed the valley, the death count rose as more and more homes were broken into, their occupants murdered in unspeakable ways. Fear grew each time storm clouds gathered. Locked doors and barred windows couldn’t prevent his entry.
Then came the night when authorities captured Leeds with his hands still soaked in blood. His trial was swift and the justice, merciless. Leeds laughed when he was sentenced to Ghoul County Correctional prison to await his fate: death by electrocution. He was still laughing when the prison guards strapped him to the electric chair and threw the switch.
But that was not the end of Leeds’ story…
His strange affinity with electricity caused unexpected, horrifying results. In the days that followed, terrified inmates heard an eerie voice emanating from the light fixtures and wiring in their cells. Lights flickered on and off randomly, while prison bars delivered shocking jolts. Prisoners slowly fell into madness. At last, the governor decreed that Ghoul County Correctional must be closed and abandoned.
