13243 Mission Tierra Way
Dates & Hours: 7-11pm, the latter days of October
This home haunt deceptively presents itself as just another yard display, but after admiring the decor for a moment or two, you realize that it’s actually a show (somewhat like The House at Haunted Hills) with effects timed to recorded audio cues that cycle through at intervals. There’s not really a story; it’s more a series of one-liners and dialogue between the characters, who include mechanical skeletons in the yard, a digitally projected witch in the window, and singing Jack O’Lanterns. There are also some clever hidden surprises that pop out for the big finish. Our advice: do not walk away prematurely, thinking you’ve seen it all, because you haven’t.
