Make your way into the underworld and come face to face with the most terrifying creatures of myth and legend.
Guests made their way into a small crumbled temple, and eventually reached a large head carved into the mountain. Greek mythology stories were in books for guests to read.
Guests entered through the Gates of Ruin, a large head carved into a mountain. Guests then wandered through tight spaced maze of overgrown moss, and at the end stood a six foot Hades. Guests then continued into the Cyclops room, in which severed body parts hand from the celing, and the cyclops attacks guests. Guests then moved into another maze, but this time with harpies flying above them, and taunting them. Exiting the scene, guests entered the temple of Medusa. Strobe lights, and shadows of Medusa turning people into stone are seen in one room. Moving into the next area, guests saw Medusa and her statues. In a finale, Hades unleashed Pandora's box into the world, and grief, misery, havoc, stravation, and doom (in their scareactor manifestations attacked guests. As guests left the house, the word HOPE was graffiti'd onto the wall behind them.
The house was very well received by fans, and was considered by many to be the best house of the event. Hades: The Gates of Ruin is also considered to be a milestone in the Haunted park industry due it being the first known Haunted attraction based on Greek mythology.
