This is a 35-minute Haunted Trail along the banks of the Tyger River in Spartanburg, SC. This trail takes you through multiple staged areas including a haunted corn maze, slaughterhouse, killer clown zone, graveyard, and asylum. 2022 also features a new frightening Farm House to explore.
Nightmare Hollow is definitely scary and there is quite a bit of blood and gore, but one reason why it makes the list of good haunted attractions for big kids and tweens is because the staff is so kind and sympathetic to the children (and parents) that are brave enough to give their attraction a try.
In fact, Bonehead the Clown (he actually even has his own Facebook page) jump scared me while I was taking photos before we had entered the maze. When he realized that he had accidentally also terrified my daughter, he offered her a peppermint and assured her that he was nice. That’s just one example of the kind of experience we had at Haunted Hollow.
You can let the staff know if you want them to tone it down a bit for your child and you have a guide that can allow any member of your party to walk around a part of the attraction that might be a bit too intense.
This is a scary attraction and we recommend waiting until children are old enough to understand that the actors are in costume and that the attractions are all staged.
