This avant-garde home haunt / circus is based in Mahopac, NY. Brand new to the scene, having broken ground in 2018, Nightmare Circus creates a horrifying carnival atmosphere. With the scent of cotton candy in the air and the sound of over sized clown shoes following you in the dark, this haunt will definitely have you die laughing. If you’re not ready for a hallucinogenic trip to the circus, you’re probably better off avoiding this one. Nightmare Circus will forever change the way you look at clowns.

More on Nightmare Circus

Nightmare circus is an east coast home haunt that pitched it’s tents for the very first time in 2018.

The two year old haunt is a passion project from father and son duo Dominic and Joseph Cappelletti and all proceeds go to ALS Association to help discover treatments and a cure for ALS.

With the “Greatest Show on Earth” getting it’s curtain call, we noticed a lot angry and sad clowns with no where to go, but the show must go one. That’s when we decided to give them a new place to let out all their anger and few laughs. The deeply disturbing circus has a team of twelve X carnival workers and the entire haunted maze takes about 10 minutes to walk through. Hear the deranged laughs in the dark maze and play with our resident clowns Boogers and Snots in the FUN-eral house.
