The Abyss at Lemp Brewery3500 Lemp Ave.St. Louis, MO 63118(314) 577-0405www.scarefest.com
The Lemp Mansion in South St. Louis is the city’s best-known haunted mansion. The Lemp family had a history of suicides and insanity, and staff at the brewery and restaurant have long reported ghost sightings. In recent years, the theatrical haunted brewery has been taken over by the folks from The Darkness. The creepy, dripping limestone walls of the brewery’s underground caverns create the perfect setting for a scream fest, and the true-story basis for the haunted premise adds just the right sort of skin-crawling creep factor.Related: Top Cheap Activities To Do With Kids In St. Louis
