In 1998, a group of staff members at a local community college built a haunted house made of cardboard refrigerator walls, black lights, plastic skeletons and
cheap plastic masks. That year, the haunt opened for four hours on a single day, exclusively to faculty and staff. Over the years, the group expanded the house,
making it more elaborate, and it became a quietly popular college event.
It attracted the attention of a well-respected local promoter, who liked the designs so much, he asked the team to produce his haunt at the Neal Blaisdell Center.
From there, the team's small production grew to something much bigger.
Today, Nightmares Live employs a team of nearly fifty and designs multiple attractions each year. Yet we still share our same love for Halloween and creating a fun,
exciting Halloween experience for others.
Check out our main attractions at Wahiawa's Dole Plantation, as well as additional events to come.
