1. Terror Manor

Terror Manor, located in Roanoke, is an intense fright-fest, according to their website. Organizers require all children under the age of 16 to have a parent onsite, and it’s not recommended for people younger than 13.

Terror Manor has what they say is intense audio, lighting, extreme low visibility, strobe lights, fog, damp or wet conditions, special effects, sudden actions, and an overall physically demanding environment.

They also offer a “VIP Experience,” which is for the more intense scare-seekers. Their website says clothing might be destroyed by paint or dyes, you can be harassed and touched by the actors, and of course, you have the option to quit anytime.

General admission tickets are $25.
