Plenty of Spooks, Scares in Southern Door

With four attractions, The Haunted Mansion offers heart-pounding, bone-chilling scares. Ramble through the dark corn maze and haunted trail, where terrifying creatures live. Be careful not to disturb the walking dead deep in the middle of the dark woods and rancid swamp, and even more fear awaits visitors on the haunted bus ride to the mansion. Every year volunteers from Southern Door Schools work to bring new scares to the mansion.

For eight years in a row the Haunted Mansion has been voted Fan Favorite Haunted Attraction in the Northeast Region by The Haunted Mansion volunteers were also recognized as the 2015 recipient of the large group Golden Heart Award for Volunteerism.

This group of dedicated students and community members of all ages assisted with construction, painting, costumes, props, acting, make-up, security, concessions, special effects and publicity.

This year the Haunted Mansion is open Oct. 5-6, Oct. 12-13, Oct. 19-20, and Oct. 26-27. Proceeds support academics, arts, athletics and enrichment activities at Southern Door Schools.
