Description: This amateur Halloween yard haunt is in its second year of operation, transforming the front yard of a mid-century home into the deteriorated remains of an abandoned cemetery with boarded up windows and a fully stocked graveyard, complete with a restless spirit (animatronic) who refuse to keep his tomb closed and a ghost maid (projection effect) who paces above her grave site. The proprietor informs us that the display is "great for families and children of all ages. No blood, no gore, no scares. Just a good traditional Halloween yard haunt, inspired by Disney's Haunted Mansion."
