The Beast Haunted House
Founded in 1991, The Beast is America's largest haunted house. The Beast pioneered the "open format" design, where you're not in a line, you're wandering through the scenes, never knowing when a spook or an activated scene will rock into action. At the Beast, you are not just looking at the scene, you are part of the action!

It takes about 40 minutes to go through the Beast -- IF you don't get lost in the fog in the Werewolf Forest, stuck in the maze, or pulled toward the light in the three-story light tower. The exit is a four story slide, it's straight down and faster than you might find comfortable!


Deray Davis
DeRay Davis is quickly killing Hollywood with his hilarious humor and persona. His film credits include Jumping the Broom, Semi-Pro, Old Dogs, Life as We Know It, Imagine That, License to Wed, School for Scoundrels, Scary Movie 4, Barbershop 1&2 and Johnson Family Vacation.

On the small screen, DeRay has appeared in HBO''s "Entourage", Comedy Central''s "Reno 911", Comedy Central Presents DeRay Davis, Comedy Central''s "Premium Blend" and BET''s "ComicView" along with numerous voices on The Boondocks.
