  • I think the title says it all. We had a great late night tour with an enthusiastic tour guide who told us lots about the sanitorium - from the history to the legend. An active walk up and down and all...  more »
  • You feel the creepiness of this place as soon as you drive up. Out of the way setting in the woods. So much fun to visit during the Halloween season. Private tours also available. Named one of America...  more »
  • I went on the last night of the haunted tour of Waverly Hills. Had a great time and glad I went. Go early traffic backs up.  more »

  • I had an amazing experience at the haunted house. The line was very long, I am talking 3 hour wait but staff came out with their costumes and scared people in line. The food was affordable and the photo booth was cool. It was one of the scariest ones I have been to, speaking of my friends ran off while I took a picture of the entrance. One thing that could have been better was the lines though. We got there at 8:00pm and the car line was an hour, plus the wait to get in was about 2 and a half hours. But it was all worth it.😉
  • I did the 6 hour paranormal tour. The guides were knowledgeable of the history of Waverly and the tour was ok. It was very cool to get to walk around the enormous building and explore. The public tour had too many people and too many flashlights shining in your face. The guides tell you to use your flashlights sparingly so your eyes will adjust to the darkness. As usual people don't listen! **If you want to do a paranormal tour find enough people and do a private tour.
  • Staff was well knowledge on the history. Would have liked to spend more time. I will return for another visit. Great prices on gift shop items too.
  • We did an overnight paranormal investigation a while back. The history of this place is both amazing and disturbing. It’s amazing how far we have come with medical advances in the last 100 years. So sad that so many people had to die, and they died here a lot. Crazy night. Very creepy place. We didn’t get much in the way of evp’s or photographs but we had a great time. I got an IR shot of a face floating at the bottom of the body chute. We want to come back and rent out the entire place on a weeknight. 50 plus people was too much to have any quiet alone time with the ghosts.
  • I love the haunted house here they really do go all out to try to scare you. And the tour is really good but short roughly 30 mins but still fun. Wish it was cheaper $60 for both plus VIP. If you haven’t been I would definitely recommend. And I captured a picture of a creepy fast on the bottom left window! This place is legit haunted.

Where to stay in Louisville

Old Town has a number of atmospheric hotels close to the city’s main attractions, while hotels in the Highlands neighborhood offer proximity to the city’s most unusual bars, restaurants, and stores. Louisville’s collection of bed and breakfasts, generally farther from town, are a great way to experience some warm Kentucky hospitality. To save some money and enjoy the city’s scenic surroundings on a vacation in Louisville, consider one of Louisville’s campgrounds. The Jefferson Memorial Forest is just 24 km (15 mi) south of downtown.
