We’ve all heard the stories…The Curtiss Mansion is haunted.  It was burned down to get rid of the ghosts and evil spirits by a group of Santeros from Hialeah.  I know most of you will scoff and just say those are rumors and town myths.  Legends we can all ignore…but why did it burn down?

Of course, the City of Miami Springs resurrected the home of legendary aviation pioneer, Glenn Curtiss.  The mansion has been restored to its former glory and now hosts incredible wedding receptions and other gala events.

The good Doctor Cortez and his assistant, Nurse Blackwater, want to make sure everyone is happy and having a great time.  The right kind of mood to treat any hysteria of haunted mansions and fear.


Nurse Blackwater has informed us that during the treatment process, it’s possible to share in mass hysteria, fear, and terror.  However, they promise that all fears associated with the mansion will be captured…along with your soul.
