Erebus is a haunted house in its purest form. The mood is set before ever setting a foot through the doors of the 4-story haunted attraction. If visiting on a busy night, beware of the monsters spread across the streets of Downtown Pontiac. Slowly the number of people around will dwindle until it’s just a handful of people in a room. From that point on, the horrors hidden inside are unleashed as the adventure to escape Erebus begins.
