    Went to a new haunt in Columbus call Carnage Haunted House. For a first year haunt they are awesome. The scenes are super creepy and the actors were spot on. They have parking and a food truck in the parking lot. Theyvalso show movies on the side of the building outside. I would definitely recommend. They’re at 1160 Alum Creek Dr. Columbus, Ohio
