The Groeneveld research team, headed by Dr. B. Kingcalm, recently set up shop at the site of the Enigma Haunt, 21069 South Military Trail in Boca Raton, to begin their investigation of some of the mysterious happenings that have started taking place around the city. The journal entry below, which was originally marked confidential, has been obtained by intrepid investigators here at Palm Beach Happening, and is presented in it’s entirety for your perusal.
September 21, 2015 – Arrival in Boca Raton
We set up in Boca Raton Today. We were retained by the Boca City Offices of the Antiquities Directorate to investigate the mysterious appearances of ancient artifacts around Boca. The team has arrived, and apart from some odd technical difficulties, the equipment seems to be working fine. We were fortunate to find an abandoned building at 21069 S. Military Trail, which is large enough to house the artifacts we have gathered. I spent the entire first day cataloguing.
From the evidence we have collected, I believe we are experiencing another manifestation of the mythological entity known as “Amara”, the enigmatic figure that gave rise to the name “The Enigma Project.” We still find it fascinating that she has appeared in so many different cultures and mythologies, despite the lack of connections between these different groups separated in both place and time.
To some, she is feared as a fiendish bringer of torment, while to others, she is worshipped as a type of angelic protector from evil. Often, she is depicted as a gatekeeper between dimensions. What is particularly interesting is that despite the differences, it is clear that all of these reference the same being or entity. Of course, it is understandable that fear and worship could merely be different reactions to the same thing. However, that still does not explain the shared mythos of this ‘Amara’.
I cannot contain my excitement! I have been researching Amara since my doctoral studies, and this could be the most documentable manifestation encountered in modern times, far more revealing than the other minor incidents we have been following. I am sure my family is sick of my ramblings about this, but the more we find, the more excited I get to see what comes next – we are ready to crack this mystery once and for all!
Starting on Friday, October 2, the site of the mysterious Amara findings, located within the Realms of Terror, will open it’s doors for the 2015 season.
In addition to the indoor haunted space, the Haunt has an outdoor staging area, The Pit, with cue line entertainment sure to warp the imagination of those awaiting entrance into the haunt. Also new this year is an “RIP Pack” – which get guests a VIP pass to skip the line and an Enigma Haunt souvenir shot glass.
New undead and living characters will be there vying for souls while some of Enigma Haunts iconic characters return, ready for each victim – Amara, who opened the Realm’s portals and still roams there; Otto the Clown; Sammy the Disturbed; and Jedidiah the Butcher.
The haunted attraction will also sponsor various charity nights throughout October to continue giving back to the community. As in years past, a portion of online ticket sales will be donated to The Wounded Warrior Project. “Insanity Pack” tickets (entrance to both haunts) are $5.00 off online right now as a preseason special offer.

Enigma Haunt is a family owned and operated haunted attraction that began 16 years ago with a simple set-up just on their front patio to entertain trick-or-treaters on Halloween night. As the kids got older, the home-haunt attraction grew, reaching up to 500 visitors on Halloween night. In 2012, the haunt moved to its current location, converting the home-haunt to a professional, entertaining and ultimate haunted attraction in South Florida. Each year the haunted attraction revamps to create a fully unique and new terror experience for all. Enigma Haunt caters to all ages, although it may be too intense for children under 12.
Remember that Halloween is a time for fun and frivolity. It is a time to come out of your shell, and to acknowledge the mischievous spirit that resides within all of us. Be sure to keep following Palm Beach Happening for news on other spooky events in the Palm Beaches. If you know of another local event that would appreciate the undead light shone upon it, please let us know!
