Haunting experience comes to Mall of America

It’s getting spooky at the Mall of America. The crew behind American Monsters has created a brand new, one-of-a-kind haunted attraction at the mall. It’s located on level 2 in the former vaccination site. The story-driven haunt is called Onionhead’s Revenge. It’s based off a Louisiana folktale so the area has been transformed into the bayou. There are different levels of tickets and experiences within the attraction. It opens Friday, Sept. 15 and will run through Halloween. It’s a no-touch experience but it’s still quite spooky so its recommended that kids be 10 and up.
