There are a few nights left for Halloween enthusiasts to take in the second annual Haunted Greenhouse in Redcliff.
Kevin and Julie Lagasse are hosting the event at their greenhouse at 303 Second Street SW in Redcliff.
“Basically, it’s a haunted maze,” said Julie.
The Haunted Maze has a scarecrow, zombie and castle area as well as new holograms, over 40 animatronics and many props to walk through.
“There’s a new haunted house within the Haunted Greenhouse feature and lots of animatronics, and it’s a little bit bigger this year and there’s going to be a little bit more time because there’s more detail (in it) to get through it,” said Julie.
Kevin said, “The rooms are way more detailed this year. It’s a little more closed off—so a little darker and little scarier this year I’d say.”
The Lagasse’s wanted to make sure there were some more structures, whether that be more solid walls or the rooms not just all animatronics and had more detail to what is going on inside the theme room.
“Scares, laughs and thrills,” said Kevin, on what they want people to get out of the experience.
The event is following the Restrictions Exemption Program where attendees will have to have a proof of vaccination or negative test result and mandatory masking is required.
“I’ve always been a pretty big fan of Halloween,” said Kevin.
“So, like if you’ve seen my yard before this greenhouse, you couldn’t fit anything on this yard—it’s completely packed. They basically said Halloween threw up on my yard.”
The Haunted Greenhouse goes from Oct. 15 to 31 and is open Sunday to Thursday from 6 to 10 p.m. and Fridays and Saturdays (6 to 11 p.m.)
Admission is $10 for adults, $5 for kids and families of four is $25.
A dollar from every entry goes to HALO Air Ambulance.
