Annual Haunted House




Welcome to the house of Dr. Everette Usher. A pillar of the community, modest yet refined, Dr. Usher has always been gracious towards his fellows in town - but always the talk of the townspeople when not around. Today is the day his eldest son turns nine years old, and what better way to celebrate than hiring a troupe of party entertainers - clowns. But some inside that house has gone horribly awry, will you and the other guests manage to make it through the house or will one wrong turn lead you straight into the mystery that surrounds Dr. Usher and his secretive medical experiments?

Haunted House Encore will be Friday Nov 4.

You may ask...Is it scary?

Group rates are available for groups of 10 or more with advanced tickets.



No Refunds. It's our job to scare you. If you ask, we did an excellent job! If you are too scared to finish the tour, ask the nearest security person or cast member to be escorted to the closest exit.



In case of an emergency, the house lights will be on full. Follow instructions of the nearest cast member or security personnel to be shown to the nearest exit.
