This Halloween home haunt offers a yard display and walk-through, with home-made grave stones, some digital effects, and live actors. Decorations include singing Jack O’Lanterns and several animatronic figures: a coy werewolf who moves only when least expected; a masked madman raising a severed head; and a “walker” using a walker – i.e., a groaning zombie torso holding itself up by its hands, poised awkwardly over the metallic device. The walk-through features “stone” columns leading into a garage transformed into a lair, filled with ghoulish props (including a real bat and a rat, both dead) – the perfect abode for the witches, vampires, and other fiends.
Haunted by Memories Manor is free; however, the haunt accepts donations for charity. Donated food items will be distributed for Thanksgiving.
The proprietors may expand into a community haunt for Halloween 2017, moving to a bigger venue, perhaps the local church.
