For 22 years the Youth and Volunteer Centre has been putting the scare into Red Deerians and this Halloween season is no different.

With a bigger space, new animatronic characters and lots of blood, guts and gore, the team of volunteers is sure to put the fright into just about anybody’s night.

The Zed 99 Haunted House, located in the former Zone Bar and Minolta office in the Lion Plaza at 7710 50th Ave., is a perfect location, says Youth and Volunteer Centre of Red Deer fund development officer John Johnston. With high ceilings and lots of space to build a labyrinth of rooms, tight corridors creaky stairs, an open sewer feature and a super gruesome abattoir, this year’s house is sure to deliver bone-chilling thrills.

The house swings open its doors on Friday from 6 to 10 p.m. for the premier night, which includes pumpkin carving and prizes.

On Saturday from 1 to 4 p.m., there is a children’s matinee and later, the Edmonton Bone Wagon Association brings its parade of hearses to Red Deer for a macabre show and shine.

The haunted house is open every night from 6 to 10 p.m. from Friday to Oct. 31, with several special events, including:

• Wicked Wednesday featuring Hell’s Kitchen on Oct. 24.

• Friday Fright Night, Oct. 26, featuring Midnight Madness, where the house will open its doors for adults only from midnight to 2 a.m.

• The Saturday Spooktacular will run Oct. 27 and includes a costume party.

• On Wednesday, Oct. 31, Halloween candy treats will be handed out.

The haunted house is not recommended for children under seven years of age and children under 10 must be accompanied by an adult.

Johnton says an amazing group of creative, enthusiastic volunteers and local business supporters have put together yet another tremendous event that continues to raise the bar from year to year.

Proceed from the haunted house support the ongoing efforts of the Boys and Girls Club of Red Deer.
