So far, we have heard from…
- Ankeny Haunted Barn
- Linn’s Supermarket Haunted House
- Tormented Souls Haunt
- Trail of Terror (Baxter)
In this list are two haunts that did not operate last season. We are off to a good start.
Initial site updates began today, but full information won’t be added until later.
Each year, I maintain a Google Calendar that has daily entries for each haunted house. You can subscribe to this on your phone and always know what haunt is operating that night, as well as the hours.
It has been updated again, and now includes the dates and times for the haunts I have heard from so far: The Slaughterhouse, Ankeny Haunted Barn and Tormented Souls.
Check out the directory entry for Slaughterhouse for a few photos of what you can expect inside this year. They have moved to a new location downtown (first year they will be in this new spot) and have rebuilt everything from the ground up… Or below ground. I’m not sure where they actually are in the building, yet…
When the Ankeny Haunted Barn announced they were returning, one of the details they provided was that they would be “handicap accessible.” Because of this, I created a new category this year called “Wheelchair Access.” You will now be able to select that category and see all the attractions that should be able to accommodate screaming guests travelling in wheelchairs.
Ian Miller, one of the folks behind the newly rebuilt Slaughterhouse, also says that they are “definitely accessible!”
Be sure to check out these haunt’s entries in our index for maps, discount information, and links to official websites and social media accounts.
And please let us know if there are any others in the state of Iowa. Thanks to the filters in the new directory (which let you see only haunts within a certain distance), I will now be listing any haunt in the state of Iowa that wishes to be included.
