The Factory of Terror, located in Canton, Ohio, is one of the LARGEST INDOOR HAUNTED HOUSES IN THE WORLD! The Factory has been recognized by Guinness World Records three times for this achievement. There are plenty of haunted houses in Ohio, but none MANUFACTURE NIGHTMARES as startling and as intense as the Factory of Terror! Factory of Terror’s reputation for industrial thrills and chills draws massive crowds from the tri-state area every year.

This enormous haunt is more than a mile long and consists of five unique spine-chilling attractions; 1300 Lost Souls, Industrial Nightmare, Lafayette 13 (BRAND NEW FOR 2019!), Massacre on Mahoning, and The House of Nightmares. All five attractions (or scare zones) operate linearly and are re-queued along the way to maintain spacing between groups. Every haunt’s queue line is indoors and out of the weather, a big plus when dealing with NE Ohio’s unpredictable weather. To take advantage of every minute, talented actors and performers are scattered throughout the queue lines to entertain patrons as they anxiously await to enter each attraction.

Halfway through the heart-pounding tour, NEW for 2019 patrons will be able to visit the brand new midway, “French Quarter at the Factory.” Here, guests can take a breather and enjoy concessions & more with their friends while being transported into Bourbon Street and the French Quarter of New Orleans. We might even have some treats for the over 21 crowd at Forsaken Bar on Bourbon, AND our selection of concessions is expanded. Over the years, this once quick pass-through area has emerged into a fun-filled gathering place full of activities, and that tradition has only gotten even more exciting for this upcoming season.  It also allows timid patrons time to calm down, regroup, and gather their courage to continue on to our final 2 spine-tingling attractions.

Not only do these five attractions have some of the most HIGHLY DETAILED AND ELABORATE SETS in the haunt industry, they are paired with an incredibly talented team of scare-actors and specialty performers. The Factory of Terror employs over 130 actors and staff, in addition to more than 500 of the industry’s scariest monsters and high tech animatronics. The Factory of Terror has committed itself to keeping up with current product developments in the industry as well as the trends of the culture, both of which are reflected in the guests’ experience.


Your journey begins in the 1300 Lost Souls, filled with the crazy and the quirky. Deep in the heart of 1300, you will experience the best mirror maze in the country. This perfectly engineered reflective and disorienting mindgame completely absorbs your sense of direction, making you question whether “seeing is really believing”. Many customers revisit this attraction to “figure out the secrets,” only to be victimized again by their own delusions of control.


Industrial Nightmare showcases and brings to life dangerous details from the original factory, while taking you to a time in history that cared very little about safety and security. It is Industrial Nightmare that truly reflects the industrialism and terror that makes this haunt so unique.


ALL NEW!  Make your way through this nightmare on the bayou as the swamp begins to overtake the area, creating horrific creatures that lurk throughout.


Once you leave the terror of Lafayette 13, you’ll be transported to the lively FRENCH QUARTER of New Orleans. Before you continue on to our last 2 houses, experience all that NOLA flavor as you catch your breath, hear some Cajun tunes, grab a bite to eat, and indulge in some adult beverages (!!!) on Bourbon Street!


NEW AT FOT FOR 2019…. our FULL BAR with beer and liquor. Grab some food & drink at our brand new bar! Featuring beer, liquor, as well as Halloween and New Orleans-themed cocktails. We will be ID’ing EVERYONE. Please drink responsibly.


Why is there a mansion in middle of a factory? As the story goes, the aluminum foundry was unable to turn a profit. Convinced that the workers were to blame for his losses, the owner, Mr. Winters, decided to build a house in the middle of the production line. His constant presence was remarkably effective until his mind became fragile due to the dark, desolate environment. Using the factory’s own tools and equipment, Mr. Winters went on a random killing spree before adding his personal cemetery inside the walls of his factory mansion.


The House of Nightmares, a literal nightmare, is a highly detailed haunt containing a mixture of animations, blood, guts, and gore…promising to leave you with many disturbing memories. If and when you get out, it won’t be with your senses in tact.
