For the last several months, Funtown Splashtown USA has been teasing fans of the park with the idea of a brand new attraction for 2023. Based on some of the signage that popped up in the park at the close of the 2022 season, many people believed it could be a return of the lost-but-not-forgotten Haunted Mansion from the Cascade Water Park days. It'll be haunted, but it's going to be something different.

Shared on Facebook by Funtown Splashtown USA, the park unveiled their new ride at a conference on Tuesday morning, sharing with the world their plans for a Haunted Hotel in 2023. The attraction will be completely unique to Funtown, meaning no other amusement park in the world will feature an attraction exactly like it.

The Haunted Hotel storyline will be that an old witch named Lilith has cursed the brand new hotel Funtown has built, and riders who are daring enough to enter the hotel will encounter cursed elements (and guests) the witch has put into place. Riders will be asked to enter another dimension to saved the cursed guests in this unique, dark ride. Funtown promises an interactive element for this attraction, with more details coming at a later date.

One notable detail revealed by Funtown was that their Haunted Hotel would be family friendly. For those that remember the old Haunted Mansion, there were many elements that were bone-chillingly scary. It appears that the Haunted Hotel may take some of their "scary" elements from the iconic Haunted Mansion at Walt Disney World.

Construction is set to continue through the winter and spring, with the hopes to have the Haunted Hotel open and ready to go as a featured new attraction at Funtown for the 2023 season.
