Fun fact: I love Halloween. Additional fun fact: I hate haunted houses. I don't like being in the dark and having people jump out at me. So when I was told that I'd be getting a tour of The Heart Of Darkness in Waterloo, I was relieved that it was during the daytime. And wow, HOD certainly lives up to the hype. Here's a sneak peek!

The Heart of Darkness was selected as the #1 haunted attraction in Iowa for 2016, and HOD's "Fear Engineers" have been hard at work to make this year the most terrifying yet!
