A Haunting Good Time Like No Other
The Corpse Manor opens this month in the Post Road Recreation Center just south of Pendleton Pike. But this is more than a haunted house put together just for Halloween. This is a professional theatrical production featuring real actors and actresses working for one common goal — to SCARE you. There are three haunted attractions in one, each with their own unique theme and staff. There’s the Corpse Manor, an old manor built on a graveyard with its foundation made of dispirited tombstones. You have the chance to visit the home of Lord Henry Calvert, who has been dealing with strange happenings at his manor since the day he moved in.
You may experience some of those strange happenings when you visit, and you may find that some of the spirits from the dead souls have never left! You be the judge. The floors are uneven, the rooms are in disarray and the hallways are very narrow, so there’s not much room to get away when something creepy comes at you and, yes, something creepy will!
There’s also an attraction called Night Shadows, which is simply a play on our biggest fear – fear of the dark. A haunted trail awaits visitors next door called Sinister Woods – a wooded lot with no place to hide.
Owners Dan Justus and Bob Kints have traveled the country checking out some of the best haunted houses and are excited to open the Post Road attraction. “It is actually a year round facility,” says Dan. “The recreation center has go-cart racing year round and haunted laser tag through the fall.”
Bob says they worked hard to put this production together. “We made a scary production with professional actors from Footlight Musicals. This is the real deal. These people know how to scare!”
So this year when making your list of haunted houses to check out, don’t forget to include the Corpse Manor, Night Shadows and Sinister Woods, all at 4700 N. Post Road located at the Post Road Recreation Center, where you can find fun and snacks … that is, if you have an appetite left after visiting the haunted attractions!
