Seated at the entrance to the world renowned spiritualist camp (just outside of Orlando in Central Florida) is the Cassadaga Hotel. Renowned for the spirits haven’t checked out of this hotel, it has been the subject of numerous ghost investigations.*
This October, Sideshow Nightmares will help transform part of the 1927 Spanish structure into a Halloween haunt. For five days at the end of October, the Coulrophobia haunted house takes over, materializing at 7pm each evening (Thursday 10/27 7pm-10pm; Friday, Saturday and Sunday 10/28-10/30 7pm-11pm and Monday/Halloween 7pm-10pm).
“Although all are welcome keep in mind some scares and scenes may be intense” – Sideshow Nightmares.
Open auditions for would-be haunters will be held at the hotel on August 6th from 9am – noon. According to Jay at Sideshow Nightmares, “All are invited to come out and try out for a role, all questions anyone may have will be answered at the time of tryouts.”
The Cassadaga Hotel & Psychic Center is located at 355 Cassadaga Rd. Cassadaga, Fl. 32706
