Spook-tacular events at this year’s haunted house

Those who dare to enter will be taken back into the Twilight Zone at this year’s Zed Haunted House, which recently opened to the public.

It’s the 20th anniversary of the attraction and the theme is a salute to the original Rod Serling television series The Twilight Zone.

“We’ve really gone over the top this year,” said John Johnston, event manager. “The volunteer input and creativity has been amazing.

“The house is very creepy and very well done.”

The Zed Haunted House is located at 6603 67 St. in Red Deer and runs until Oct. 31.

Each evening will feature different events including the Carnival of Clowns – A salute to the clown, Alberta’s largest collection of hearses, a trick or treat special for the younger ones, among others.

“It amazes me the number of hours, enthusiasm and the creativity of the people involved with this haunted house, and the manner in which the community embraces this event each year,” said Johnston. “It no longer is just a haunted house, but rather, an event complete with fun activities, scares and entertainment for all ages.”

All proceeds from this event will support the Boys and Girls Club of Red Deer and District.

“This is the major fundraiser for the club,” said Johnston. “We are hoping to net $60,000 this year.”

Last year, the event raised $42,000 for the club.

“We realize our goal this year is ambitious but I think with all of the extra attractions we have, we’ll be able to reach our goal,” said Johnston.

Because it’s the 20th anniversary of the attraction, West Jet is offering one visitor to the haunted house a trip for two anywhere the airline flies.

By purchasing a glow wristband for $2, visitors will have their name entered into the draw.

The Zed Haunted House is open from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. daily with Saturday and Sunday matinees from 1-4 p.m.

General admission is $10 while matinees are $8. Fast passes, group passes and unlimited passes are also available.

Johnston said the haunted house is appropriate for those aged 10 and up, but the matinees will be toned down for younger children.
