2013 Haunt of the Year Winner
THE BUTCHER SHOP: HOUSE OF GORE, St Paul's premiere haunted house, now in it's fourth year, is an unusually detailed, full-size maze-style haunted house that was constructed in the way haunted houses used to be built... black lights, rats, skulls, cadavers, ghosts, strobe lights, fog machines, rubber masks, and gallons of shocking bloody gore! Although there is no age restriction, THE BUTCHER SHOP is intended for an adult audience. Children must be accompanied by an adult. PLEASE BE WARNED! The monsters and ghouls who inhabit THE BUTCHER SHOP will attack all who enter! Children are not spared from the full horrific effect of the show. Parents, use discretion. If you have a sensitive or impressionable child, it may be in their best interest to spare them from this potentially traumatic gore-experience! Email Haunt Owner

Review This Haunt
  • Creepy cries

    I was really frightened be the macabre scenes in this gem of a haunted house!!! The wacky characters seemed so odd it was like these folks are like this all the time.The work and the bloody art are really unrivaled. I have seen many of these and this one really made the hair stand up on my back.

  • Old school, real deal

    There was a time, long ago, when scary creatures didn't have catch phrases, weren't "sexy evil nurses" and didn't have a soundtrack of radio friendly butt-metal. These were the days when horror was horror. The sort of noir imagery that consisted of shadow as much as light, letting the viewer fill in the blanks with their own, frightened and twisted imaginations. The Butcher Shop: House of Gore is by and for the people that get it.

  • A good time!

    After 12 years of going to various haunts in the Twin Cities, this was the first year I'd heard of it. Given it's proximity to Fright Farm, we decided to make it a double bill on the night of the 18th. We overshot the location at first (if there was some signage, we couldn't see it in the dark) and it wasn't until we turned around that we could see the garage was off of a side street. The external ambiance was good and with eager anticipation we entered. Every couple of years when Halloween falls on a weekend, I do a backyard haunt so I'm always on the lookout for cool ideas and different perspectives for picking at people's fears. I was very impressed with how the pathways were laid out. It was was certainly disorienting. I liked the props and the actors. For as small of a space as it was, it seemed like they were making use of every inch of it. My only issue was that it was over too soon. I was a hairs breadth from going through it a second time right then and there. Definitely planning on making it through a 2nd time this season.

  • Every year gets scarier

    I go every year, and every year I'm surprised anew, and scream out loud.

  • Scary fun!

    This is by far the scariest haunted house I've been through. It's terrifying yet fun. I was crying with laughter by the time I ran out the exit. I wish it was longer - but it's much longer than I would have guessed from the outside and you can't beat the price. Would definitely recommend!

    My wife and I have seen most of the haunted attractions in the twin city area over the past 7 years. As fans of horror and halloween, we look for originality and realism in the haunted houses we visit. the butcher shop house of gore was great in all departments! wow this haunt blew our minds!! we wasted our money a few years ago on the soap factory, and when we finally went through it ws a big letdown, valleyscare seems to be the same type of thing each year. thee are many smaller haunts, but they start to seem amaturish and not that scary. The Butcher Shop House of Gore was by far the very best I and my wife have seen in Minnesota. I hope they keep scaring into the future because minnesota needs a great haunted house like this!

  • so much creativity

    I had heard of this place for a couple years so my family decided to venture the two hours into the metro area to check a couple haunted attractions. The butchershop; houseof gore was well worth the trip! So much talent and creativity went into this. As a family that has enjoyed halloween scares and horror,there was nothing but comlements from them and they're a hard bunch to impress!!
