Graveyard Games












The final original concept house for Halloween Horror Nights is revealed: Graveyard Games. In the Ascension Parish Cemetery teens frequently play games among the gravestones, but the departed do not find it very fun. Ghosts, skeletons, spirits, and apparitions will punish those who vandalize the graves and catacombs.

There are repercussions for disturbing the dead.
