This is in Orlando on East Colonial Drive. There used to be a used CD store on this corner and a puppy store nearby called Nut & Butt Puppies (yes, seriously).

Another big haunted house during the 90’s was Skull Kingdom which started after Terror on Church Street but couldn’t compete and didn’t really start getting popular until the 2000’s after Terror on Church Street closed. It would only last a few more years later anyways and would eventually get demolished because no one went. Which was a pretty stupid move, not that the haunted house was any good or really worth the admission, but that it was probably the closest thing we will ever get to Skeletor’s Castle in real life.
ED. NOTE: Once my friend Nick and I decided to shoot a zero budget zombie film while we were in college and held auditions in Orlando where one of the people who came was this 45-year-old who still lived with his parents and worked at Skull Kingdom as some ghoul-bellhop combo that wasn’t quite Lurch from The Addams Family. After his audition we ultimately told him we didn’t want him in our movie, but he was still calling us and asking us if he could help with props and do voice-overs. We decided to ask him to do a reading and he actually mailed us a cassette tape of himself “acting out” a few lines from our (terrible) script. Surprise, it ends up being just as bad if not worse than him in person, so we tell him no thanks but he still kept calling and harassing us asking for his tape back being all aggressive and threatening to sue us if we used his voice acting in any form. I think he eventually just stopped after we kept ignoring his calls and then just did the voice-overs ourselves. Of course our naive ambitious college minds would get the best of us and about 3/4 of the way into “production” we decide to forego the film and just cut a 2:20 trailer instead. Fortunately, I don’t know where any of this footage is because it’s probably really bad and embarrassing and I am doing the internet a favor for never showing it. In short, Skull Kingdom was horrible and so was that dude.

"Terror on Church Street was a haunted house in downtown Orlando where adults previously came to party (prior to Disney and Universal building their own adult night life playgrounds).  Terror on Church Street was the PREMIER haunt in the country with breathtaking detail, over the top actors and realistic costumes and makeup, but of even greater impact was how it inspired haunted house owners nationwide.  In fact, I’m quite certain it was Terror on Church Street that inspired the multi-billion dollar theme parks to build haunted attractions inside their own parks.  This haunt was quite simply the perfect template for how to build a professional indoor haunted house.  As Universal and Disney built nightlife segments of their own, the nightlife of Church Street Station diminished, and eventually Terror on Church Street sadly closed too.  How many “Terror on Somethings” are the names of haunts today?  Terror on the Wharf, Terror on the Fox, Terror on the Ridge, Terror on Rural Street, Terror on 23rd, 36th, 20th, 12 and more.  Were these names derived from Terror on Church Street?  Maybe, maybe not, or maybe not directly, but either way the name certainly set a precedent in our industry."

I just want to reblog this for anyone who lived in Orlando and knows about Terror on Church Street. That bloody Seventh Seal inspired logo was one of my all time favorites growing up.

Located by the College Park area in Orlando, this was the house Jack Kerouac stayed in when he wrote The Dharma Bums. It is now home to The Kerouac Project.
