There are many legends about the old miller and the many unexplained deaths that occurred in the nearby forests and fields of the Haunted Mill. The themes are the Slenderman, Lady in White, masks of Fastelavn, blood falls, widow maker web, psychotic suspension bridge, and the Labyrinth.
South of Idaho Falls in Shelley, the Virginia Theater is transformed into a haunted theater called The Theater of the Lost Souls. And a hop skip and a jump farther south, closer to Pocatello, the Grandstand of Terror transforms the Eastern Idaho State Fair in Blackfoot into a haunted attraction.
