Legends: A Haunting at Old Town has closed its doors




We just saw this post on Behind the Thrills that says that Legends: A Haunting at Old Town, which opened in Kissimmee in 2013, has closed its doors. We visited the haunted attraction's website to read its statement about the closure:

Coinciding with the end of our lease, Legends Dark Amusements has closed operation of the haunted attraction, located at Old Town in Kissimmee, Fl. We had an agreement to sell the attraction in place, so it could continue operations in the Old Town location, but the perspective new ownership was ultimately unable to reach a lease agreement for the space.

Conversations are ongoing with perspective new operators about reopening the show in a new location. Meanwhile, the Legends FaceBook page will remain up to announce any changes in the status of the show.

Along with announcing the closure of the show, the owners of Legends would also like to take the opportunity to say thank you to our management team, cast and crew for keeping the screams echoing through the halls of Legends, since we first opened our doors in October of 2013. Our teams passion and hard work earned much deserved accolades from both our fans and the media during our run. Operating Legends has been an amazing experience that we will always remember.

When it opened, the attraction got high ratings from local horror buffs, including former Orlando Weekly creative director Adam McCabe. We even gave it a Best of Orlando nod in 2014. Read his Q&A with Legends co-creator Jim Shackelford and the haunt's fictional undertaker, Archibald Ashdown, here.
