Red Deer’s haunted house opens next week for another season of chills and thrills.
Tuesday is preview night for the attraction, located at the former GoAuto location at 7414 50th Ave. Anyone wanting some advanced scares can enter from 7 to 9 p.m.
Otherwise, the annual haunted house, which aims to raise $90,000 for Youth HQ programs, will be open Wednesday to Oct. 31 from 6 to 10 p.m.
General admission is $15 at the door, with priority entry “spook pass” admissions available online at youthhq.ca for $20. Group passes are also available in advance by calling or visiting Youth HQ.
Organizers say this year’s theme for Red Deer’s most fatal attraction is “You’re Never Alone in the Dark” — and that it promises to be a scream.
Afternoon matinees, geared to children under 10 years of age, will be Saturdays and Sundays from 1 to 4 p.m.
An older, hardier crowd can check out Freaky Friday (Oct. 18), Date Night (Oct. 19), Friday Fright Night (Oct. 25), the Saturday Spooktacular (Oct. 26), Wicked Wednesday (Oct. 30) and a special trick-or-treat edition (Oct. 31).
Midnight Madness will run from midnight to 2 a.m. on Oct. 25. (This 18-year-plus show has $20 tickets sold at the door).
