Making its debut in 2013, this new Halloween attraction is is part walk-through maze, part performance art – including a fifteen-minute series of disturbing blackout vignettes. Urban Death: Tour of Terror features minimal production values (basically a black, empty stage) but, like a martial arts master, turns this weakness into strength by using performances, punctuated by light and shadow, to create stark, indelible images that sink into the brain. The result is fairly far removed from most Halloween haunts, and thrill-seekers expecting more high-adrenalin scares  may be disappointed. But  connoisseurs of terror should be delighted by the opportunity to savor this distinctive blend of shivers.

There is plenty of street parking at the location, but allow five minutes for seating. No food or drink allowed inside.
