Looking for a good scare this Halloween that’s affordable and appropriate for the whole family? Look no further than our own Richardson Hall! During the 28th, 29th, and 31st from 5 p. m. to 9 the nursing department will be collaborating with the Paranormal Discovery Club to put on one of the scariest haunted houses in the Valley. Admission is only $2 per person all-inclusive.
The haunted experience will start with the True Hauntings of Richardson Hall, a tour of the building given by the Paranormal Discovery Club. Guests will be entertained with true ghost stories of the eerie events that have happened inside the building, and if they’re lucky, they’ll experience a paranormal phenomenon of their own.
“I’m really looking forward to being a part of the haunted house this year,” said ASC Freshman Jennifer George, who is one of the members of the Paranormal Discovery Club. “It’s really exciting to know that other people will get to hear the stories we’ve heard, and I’m glad others can see what our club does. And hopefully, they’ll experience something for themselves!”
After the tour, guests will be delivered to the nursing department, where they can choose whether or not they’re brave enough to enter the Haunted Hospital. But be warned, this haunted house is guaranteed to be scarier than ever before. According to the actors, this haunted house isn’t for the faint of heart.
“We’ve got some really awesome tricks up our sleeves,” said one actor, who wished to remain anonymous. And the only thing another actor, Natasha Vidger had to say was, “I want to scare people!” So if you’re planning on attending the Haunted Hospital, be prepared to scream.
And for the younger kids –or the older ones who aren’t ready to face the terrors of the Haunted Hospital– there will also be a kid-friendly event called the Haunted Attic.
Also a part of the nursing departments haunted house, the Haunted Attic is aimed at giving younger kids a fun, non-scary hang out while their parents and older siblings take a terror trip through the Haunted Hospital. As well as having a blast, kids will also get to trick-or-treat in the Haunted Attic.
And parents are thrilled about the kid-friendly Haunted Attic as well.
“It’s a great idea,” said mother of three Carrie Warren. “I can get some great scares from the adult haunted house while knowing my children won’t be scarred for life.”
If guests get hungry while screaming their lungs out, they can stop by the bake sale that will be going on all three nights.
All profits will go to the Adams State Nursing Department, and the goods will be delicious! Another highlight to look forward to is the homemade chili that will be sold on Monday night.
All in all, the three nights of terror are sure to be an affordable, family-friendly blast that will have you on your toes the entire time. RJ Ramirez, a freshman at ASC told the paper,
“I’m looking forward to the haunted house. I haven’t been to one in a long time, and this one sounds like it’ll be a great one.”
So go ahead and stop by one, two, or all three nights and enjoy haunting stories, shocking sights, and delicious baked goods galore, and don’t forget to bring the whole family.
