It’s a secret I have to share… Westland’s Halloween secret: Hush Haunted Attraction in Westland. I had a chance to preview this place and I think it’s pretty genius. Hush is a haunted house with TONS of fun (and scary) characters plus three secret bars. I made my way through the haunted attraction, hidden speak-easy or three and landed at Legendary Axe…where I practiced my axe-throwing skills in case the zombie apocalypse really does happen. PS: I think their food is delicious.
Hush has been around the Detroit area for ten years now; the last five in Westland. When I say Westland’s Halloween secret… It really is, complete with the new addition of hidden bars this year. I live on the westside, and I didn’t know the place was there until I arrived.
WHAT? Bars in a Haunted Attraction?
As I passed through the haunted house, I had to find the bars inside (special admission is required: 21 and over). In checking out the Hush website, I noticed you can add to the admission package to enjoy a special cocktail at each: Voodoo Sacrifice and Vampire Bite were two of my favorites. I also had a jello “shot” that came in a syringe. GENIUS! Before you start thinking “Hammered and haunted house don’t match up well” Know that Hush isn’t a full bar. People aren’t meant to get blasted there. The cocktails are Halloween themed and specific drinks are served. It’s also not a cash bar. You have to purchase the drinks ahead of time. BEWARE! 🙂
I found Hush Haunted Attraction to be way bigger than it looks from the outside. Maybe it’s just the twists and turns that made me feel that way, but I don’t think so. I thought it was really well done with a lot of intriguing live characters waiting to scare the crap out of you. I took a ton of pictures of the scary crew. They are dedicated to their roles… 100%. I didn’t take pics inside the haunted house so as to not spoil anything for you, but I did get a bunch of pictures of their creepy characters and experiences. Scroll down to check out my pics!
