The Slaughterhouse was a 1950s meatpacking plant that was turned into five bone chilling attractions under one roof in 2009. These include the infested Boiler Room, Cirque du Slay, City Meats, The Apocalypse, and the demented Voodoo Bayou. Plus the brand-new Xscape House, Tucson's newest escape rooms venue, is open and offering a "slightly less scary" challenge ideal for team building and birthday celebrations.
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.
