Minnesota Is Home to One of America’s Top Halloween Attractions
If you're looking to take your Halloween experience to a whole new level of terror this year, there's a spot in Minnesota that will help you do just that.
Thrillist included it on its list of the 13 Best Halloween Attractions in America.
But you won't find it in some old abandoned warehouse.
It's based on an old Louisiana legend, telling the tale of a man who was falsely accused of murder and subsequently hacked into 13 pieces by a vigilante mob. His mother put a hex on those who took her son, and a stitched-up Onionhead soon returned to take his revenge.
It's billed as an immersive experience, so be ready for all sorts of things to jump out at you in the dark,
To find Onionhead's Revenge, head to the East Parking Ramp and enter the mall on Level 2.
It runs through Halloween on Wednesdays and Thursdays from 7:00 PM to 10:00 PM, Fridays and Saturdays from 7:00 PM to 11:00 PM, and Sundays from 7:00 PM to 10:00 PM. It is located on Mondays and Tuesdays.
General admission tickets start at $34.95 plus taxes and fees. There's a Fast Pass option that lets you cut the line. It starts at $49.95 plus taxes and fees. The Monster Pass is $79.90 plus taxes and fees and gives you all of the Fast Pass benefits, plus two free drinks, and access to secret rooms and unique characters.
