Prime Evil

Once upon a time, the scariest Saturday-morning cartoon was Scooby-Doo, and a haunted house meant a bunch of teens in bedsheets spooking little kids. Now TV cartoons scare the shit out of us, and haunted houses have made a quantum leap into actual terror. Case in point: The Revenant Haunted Attraction, a 20,000-square-foot creep joint featuring 40 live actors and Hollywood-style special effects.

Prepare to get your ass kicked by the role-playing experience, says Revenant spokesperson Kristin Bowler: "[Revenant] is a much more interactive experience than most haunts. The unique feature is that you need to find clues so you can solve a mystery that's playing out in the haunt. It requires you to be involved while you're being terrorized."

Revenant is located in the southeast sector of the Fiesta Mall parking lot at Alma School Road and the U.S. 60.
