The 6th annual A Christmas Nightmare returns for 2023- December 8th & 9th.

The Dent Schoolhouse is celebrating Christmas and you are invited to take part in this special 2 day haunted Christmas event!  The classrooms and halls are decked out with lights and garland while Christmas trees and presents pepper the old fall festival area.  New Christmas creatures inhabit the schoolhouse waiting for Santa’s judgment… are you naughty or nice this year?

December 9th 6:00pm-10pm


Regular Admission- $30 – Includes admission to A Christmas Nightmare.
Fast Pass – $50
Front of the line – $60


Free! All parking will be located at Children’s and Christ hospitals just a block up the street on the same side of the schoolhouse.



The Spooky Shop in the Monster Midway will be open both nights and will feature new Christmas items including original haunt swag.  Fill those stockings with your favorite Dent merch!

We have had a lot of questions… will there be hoodies?  What happens if they sell out?  Well… we are going to take orders with our online store at a week or so after so that we can make sure everyone gets the A Christmas Nightmare swag before Christmas!



-Is this a haunted show??  –  YES, this is a HAUNTED Christmas event.  There may be Christmas decorations through the old schoolhouse, but this event is meant to scare and entertain you.


-Are there actors inside? – YES.  There are more live bodies in the schoolhouse during A Christmas Nightmare any other show Dent does!


-Will Krampus and other classic Christmas Characters be there?  YES.  You will see classic Dent characters with Christmas themes, new monsters, Krampus, the Grinch… and more.


-Is the schoolhouse or line heated?  Sadly no.  We recommend dressing for the cold.  Our concession stand will be open serving up hot chocolate and other warm items for purchase.


-Is The Monster Midway Open – YES.  The photo ops are all available, the Spooky Shop is open with Krampus gear, and most of the pay mini games and experiences are all open.


Merry Christmas and happy holidays from all of us at The Dent Schoolhouse.
