Some of my favorite haunt experiences in the area have been home haunts. The Haunted Garage in Grimes has been an absolutely wonderful experience where they pack in a dozen or more actors in their twisty garage haunt to traumatize the kids (er, and adults) that are brave enough to stroll through. I really think they have more screams per square foot than any of the commercial haunts 😉 And they are fun people.
Sadly, no home haunt for the 2020 season.
It could be worse, though. Los Angeles County California banned Halloween a few weeks ago, then lightened up a bit and changed that to “not recommending” Halloween. Hopefully we can at least have some form of Beggar’s Night here in Des Moines.
