“Once The World's Largest Haunted House”
Erebus the 4 story Haunted House is located in Pontiac, Michigan and was entered into the Guinness Book of World Records as the World's Largest Walk-Through Haunted Attraction from Aug. 2005 - Sept. 2009 EREBUS by Webster's definition is the darkness beneath the Earth that the dead must pass to reach Hades. In Greek mythology Erebus is the son of Chaos and the brother of Nye (Night) In 1965 inside of EREBUS, Dr. J. Colbert built the world's first functional time machine. The machine was capable of opening time portals, but there was a flaw in his design. Each time a test subject entered time travel, the time period that the subject arrived in reacted to them as a virus and attacked. Obsessed with correcting his machine, Dr. Colbert sent his own employees into time travel. Eventually he ran out of revenue and personnel. In his madness he formed an idea, "Disguise the time machine as a haunted attraction". This allowed an endless supply of paying subjects for testing and financing his time travel experiment. To date Dr. Colbert is at large inside the depths of EREBUS. Despite all efforts he has eluded capture. Beware all who enter EREBUS, for if you are one of the fortunate subjects who return from time travel the dimension you return to will be altered. Life as you know it will be changed.
First went here last year and the only real negative is that I didn't know it was cash only. I don't remember seeing it posted anywhere until I got up there and they're like "oh we only take cash." There was a atm machine available but I wasn't carrying anything on me (for ease of movement thru the house) so I had to go back to my car and then proceed to stand in line (a very long line) again. I was not happy about that. It should be posted right at the door. But it was really great. It's more psychological with small spaces and receding walls so if you don't like people right up next to you scaring the crap out of you, it's a great choice. I like that but I also like the smaller ones with people right up on ya.
Love this place! Best haunted attraction in the area. Be one of the first 50 each night and get a free t-shirt, plus you'll wanna get there early to avoid that LONG line, but it would be worth the wait.
