HOISINGTON — Ghouls, ghosts and goblins fill Hoisington’s Haunted Heights Haunted House, and for those who want to shiver, shake and scream their way through this scary delight, the attraction opens at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 17-18, 24-25, and 31-Nov. 1.
“We don’t do cute,” warns Don Doerschlag, owners along with Cecil Fabian, Chris Wikoff and Bryan Horton . “We do scary.”
With a new location, new frights, and additional input, Haunted Heights is guaranteed to
delight the adrenalin addict.
The new location is 154 S. Main, and Haunted Heights closes when the last person runs out-screaming. Cost is $5.
There are two levels this year with interactive features.
Live actors and surprise characters roam throughout the house, though guides lead viewers through. About 40 people volunteer at the house which has a whole bunch of rooms.
Plus, an evil clown lurks in the house. “People hate evil clowns,” said Doerschlag.
Doerschlag and his partners have worked tweaking the thrills many weekends since January. Doerschlag said that they would like to recover the project’s cost, but it is not a money-making venture, he said. “We did it for the community, for kids to have something to do in October.”
Also, they fun doing it. This is the seventh year in Hoisington.
