Upcoming event:

The Expelled Haunted Attraction

Oct 1st = $8 / Sissy Night (some overhead lights on, as well as all set lets. NO ACTORS) This night would be ideal for anyone wanting to see the haunted house and all of its spooky details, without having to worry about being scared by any actors.

Oct 8th = $10 / Family Night (no overhead lights, all set lights on. Some actors) This night falls somewhere in between Sissy night and the regular season event. There will be some actors, but children (or terrified adults) get to control the scare. Each group will be given a flashlight upon entrance and if the actor is too scary for the child/adult then they’ll shine the flashlight on them, and the actor will cower away (as if they’re afraid of the flashlight).

Date: Oct. 1 & 8

Time: Varies
