The Slaughterhouse was a 1950s meatpacking plant that was turned into five bone chilling attractions under one roof in 2009. These included the infested Boiler Room, Cirque du Slay, City Meats, The Apocalypse, and the demented Voodoo Bayou.
In 2020, we transformed these 5 haunts into one of the longest Haunted Houses in the world! You now only need to wait in 1 line to experience all the terror, including tons of new larger than life props, animatronics, and other upgrades you are sure to love! The Slaughterhouse 2020 was a completely new experience for everyone, and the changes for 2021 are even better!
For our 2021 Slaughterhouse Season, we will continue to operate as one GIANT Haunted House, but this year, the area that was Voodoo Bayou has been taken down a in it's place we have erected an entire new outdoor haunt - check out our social media for the official unveiling of this terrifying new area. BUT WAIT, there's more - a huge section of our indoor 3D haunt has been flattened and redone from floor all the way to the ceiling - there are new scares and effects in this new are that will blow your mind! On top of these two huge renovations, we are adding the downstairs portion of Apocalypse Pandemic to everyone's experience - upgraded tickets will still be the only people to proceed upstairs to shoot back against the infected, but every ticket will now get to see a small glimpse of what is in store at the top of those stairs...
Also new for 2021 - Virtual Que and Digital Photo QRs!

The Slaughterhouse was on the Travel Channel on January 13, 2018, when Tucson’s scariest haunted house and event venue was featured on the fourteenth season of Ghost Adventures. The crew, along with special guest Rapper Post Malone, traveled to Arizona to investigate the meatpacking plant- turned haunted attraction.
The team from Travel Channel's "Ghost Adventures" included paranormal investigators Zak Bagans and Aaron Goodwin, along with A/V techs Billy Tolley and Jay Wasley. They came to the desert after finding reports on the Internet that this well-known attraction was actually haunted.
The shoot lasted three days from November 11 – 13, 2017. The team met with eyewitnesses and experts to piece together the haunted history of The Slaughterhouse, formally Farmer Johns, a meatpacking plant that opened in the 1950s. Equipped with the latest scientific gadgets and technology to confront the reported paranormal activity, the team was locked down during the shoot where they documented a marathon of paranormal activity throughout the entire plant.
“We haven’t seen the footage yet, but I can tell you Post Malone was visibly disturbed when he left the investigation,” said Bobby Sutton, CEO of Tucson Screamers Inc. The Slaughterhouse episode will air on the Travel Channel January 13, 2018 at 9/8C. This is the first time the venue has been featured on national television.
