Sanctum of Horror is a place of fear, a breeding ground of evil. Those who enter this abyss succumb to madness, and now the sanctum has found its way into the mind of a little girl.

Enter the twisted mind of Lenore, and relive her violent past. Navigate the decaying walls of her childhood home, and witness the brutal murders of her kin. As you weave your way through an ancient graveyard filled with the undead, you will arrive at St. Charlotte Asylum. The inmates have taken over the compound, and experiment on the doctors who tried to help them. The only way out is through Lenore’s cell and into the basement where she tortured her victims. But be warned, Lenore will sense your presence. She will not take kindly to those who don’t belong in her memories.

For 7 years, Sanctum of Horror has been scaring the East Valley with breathtaking make up and incredible detail that will surely frighten the soul. Not only will you be terrified, but be immersed in the Sanctum’s world. Will you have what it takes to enter?

  • Email Verified WOW

    Highly recommend. Great costumes and make up and props for so realistic and you never knew when somebody was going to pop out. There were plenty of black rooms where you had to feel your way through and it was terrifying.

  • Our favorite haunt!

    Great quality, decor, acting and spacing of scares/quality of scares. The United storyline and how it builds on each other as you progress through the game separates this from other haunts. Worth the money, and we are Picky haunters. Go!!

  • Email Verified Was Sacred!

    My friends and I picked this haunted house because we thought it was going to be cheesy and lame. Wow! Were we wrong! Very well done. The SFX makeup looks well-done and is consistent, the costumes didn't look cheap, and it is full of twists and turns you just can't even expect or anticipate. Lots of variety within each haunted house. The lines weren't too bad as only one group could go through at a time. Had a great time and made some cool memories! Would def go back next year (:

  • Email Verified So fun for all

    Very fun experience! I am a decent chicken and I survived both houses. The actors really were able to read the crowd and scared the crud out of my 15 yr old daughter and her friend who love Haunted Houses. The owner approached us for feedback and there wasn’t anything bad to say. It was a win win night! Highly recommend!

  • Email Verified Great midsize haunt

    I’m a bit of a haunt enthusiast from Chicago which is a very different haunt scene. In Arizona I’ve mostly been disappointed but this was a great haunt. They’re a bit smaller then the big haunts in the area but I love that (side note I think a location in a home or the woods or something would be perfect or somewhere more remote would be perfect). Their ability to act was so refreshing. The themes and storyline were well communicated and awesome. The sets/decor wasn’t world class or anything but it was appropriate. The only downside for me was I longed for better costumes. Some actors didn’t even have a mask or makeup but just a blank face which I wasn’t a fan of. But overall I really enjoyed this haunt and it was a perfect way to end my haunt season.

  • Email Verified The best I have been to

    I took my wife and three boys ages 7-11 last night. This was the best haunted house I can remember going to in my life. It was scary, professionally, and fun. It was strange to be in a mall parking lot but they did a fantastic job and it was nice not to drive an hour to get there. It might have been a little over the top for my seven year old but afterwards he said he liked it and everyone else loved it. I had to lead and I will say I was very scared over and over. Highly recommend this attraction. Consider speed pass but it wasn’t terrible waiting in line. We ended up in the slower line as the people in front of us suggested we pull up the coupons on our phones. People in costumes come around and made the wait way better.

  • Email Verified Bring clean underwear!!

    Is it wrong for me to brag about how happy it made me seeing the performers at the Sanctum of Horror scare the ever loving bejeezus out of my children? Well I don’t care!!! I LOVED every minute of it. All of us had a great time and your cast was absolutely amazing. Everything from the make-up to the props were excellent. We will definitely be back next year for our dose of Halloween terror. A truly great experience sure to make the hair on the back of your next stand straight up. BTW....that girl from “The Ring” who walks on her hands twisted in the wrong direction with the TV snow on the screen behind her, you know who you are. You freaked us out and talked about how friggin creepy you were the entire drive home. Such a great time!

  • Good show!!

    Good show. It was better than most of the haunts I have visited. Apart from the scares, we got our photos emailed to us and also got a free shirt which was a bonus. It was my first time here and I usually skip the small ones. But this time I had been there with my family and we did have a great time. The house was neat and tidy and represented a haunted place really well. The scares were timed well. A few managed to make us all shriek. We will be adding this to our list haunts to be visited annually.

  • Email Verified Outstanding performance...

    Amazing haunt experience! We have been a regular visitor and every year it amazes with newly innovative scares. The idea and creativity are superb and needs great appreciation. The theme and the effects were outstanding. The scares made us scream and jump a few times and it was been real scary treat for us. Both haunted houses were amazing in their own ways. Looking forward for another great season.

  • Lots of good scares

    It was a pleasant day and it ended in a good note with us visiting the Sanctum. The energy there was a big plus. They keep you on your feet quite actively and before you know it the scares are all there up on your face. I don't scream or yell. I ended up doing all this and it was awkward. It was also funny to see the rest of the gang scream and run. Lots of good scares and tons of fun. The actors are energetic and full of energy.
