The Edge of Hell

1300 West 12th Street
Kansas City, MO 64101


Founded in 1975, The Edge of Hell began as KC's oldest and best haunted house--and has evolved into the national model for celebrating the entertainment value of confronting fear.

A converted five story warehouse, it offers a quarter-mile walk through sensory stimulation--that ends abruptly 30 minutes later, as you slide from heaven down the five-story spiral slide into the arms of the Devil himself. This is the granddaddy of 'em all--and with good reason.

The Edge of Hell is constantly re-inventing it's five floors. New scenes are always added to the cast of 45 live performers with the newest state-of-the-art technology. The air crackles, your fingertips sizzle. One million volts surge to grab you. A Vampire lunges, his hot breath violates your lungs. A 20 foot live Anaconda's eyes dart left then right, poised to crush his live prey.
