Nightmare on 9
This haunted attraction has some history behind it. They explain: "The Snohomish Slaughter and Rendering Plant was built in 1935 by the Thomas brothers, Sam and Dean. It was closed in 1975 when one of the brothers was tragically torn in half by one of the meat grinders. There is still speculation as to whether Sam tripped or was shoved to his gruesome death. What was left of his upper body was never found." Search for the corpse and encounter some very freaky creatures along the way.
