NM Slaughter House in Albuquerque – Website : www.NMSlaughterHouse.com

The NM Slaughter House is based on a true story and is definitely one of the scariest haunts in New Mexico. It’s a home owned by a demented couple and their “perfect” child Nina. Among the other children, Nina was unharmed and guests follow her through the secret passageways through the house in an attempt to protect you from harm. Customers walk between walls, climb steps, enter and exit through vents, closets and cabinets. There are several booby traps that were installed by Leather Head. Because the children starved, they resorted to cannibalism in order to survive. If they see you however, you must be careful because they will attempt to feed! Customers following Nina’s passage will hopefully make it past the parents Leather Head and Mother Mary but the horror doesn’t end there. Fearless or fearful customers will have to face off with the mysterious wolf creature who fed on the children’s bodies after they died!

Take a look for yourself!
