Villa of the Vampire
Many years ago, an old and powerful vampire only known as “The Master” came to Kennywood and brought with him his Villa. Brick by brick it was built to house all his children of the night. Over the years, the Master has opened up his Villa to many guests. Some of these guests joined him building the vampire pack stronger, while the rest have served to feed this bloodthirsty group.
