The story of the Madd Hatters Haunt originates from the 18th century when mercury salts were used to make felt for fancy hats. The process required copious amounts of the element, a substance then not understood to be as dangerous as we now know it to be.
Day after day the hat makers who handled the mercury-soaked poisoned fabric were stricken by a condition that affects the nervous systems. Those so exposed would in time develop uncontrollable twitches and trembles, making them appear demented.
Knowing the hat company would soon be closing its doors, the owner possessed by greed, quickly shifted gears and began to build walls around the newly insane. Was the Madd Hatter always possessed by greed and evil? The evil that begins to take over his demeanor it turns out is embedded deep within his DNA. Throughout centuries the genes that have been carried on in the Madd Hatters Family Tree were fueled by evil. This year’s haunt follows the terror brought about by the ancestors of Madd Hatters Haunt, starting with his great, great, great grandfather who was a Plague doctor during the Black Death Era. As you travel through the haunt try and stay ahead of the outbreak, getting out before you are quarantined in the ultimate goal.
