“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.

We have been coming to Erebus every year and I enjoy it every time. We went on a Monday because it was only $20 a person. You can skip the line by purchasing VIP tickets. If you don't show up at... Read more
