There is a GREAT family-friendly (thought they can be scary if you want) home haunt in West Des Moines. We were blown away by how elaborate their 3-car garage haunt is. This year, they are themed like a ghost town. The level of detail is amazing. Check it out:
A new home haunt has been added to the index. Check it out! (I need to make a new category to differentiate this from the other haunted garage we have had listed.)
Richard’s House of Horrors has been added to the listing. This is the first home haunt I have added this year.
The Haunted Bone Cemetery yard display has been added to the index. Drive by on Beggar’s Night (Oct 30, 2022) from 6pm to 8pm and check it out.
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.
Do you have a cool Halloween yard display or home haunt you’d like folks to know about? Submit it and we will add it to the directory. Please include any special notes (like nights it will be operating, parking restrictions in the neighborhood, etc.). Let’s see if we can at least have cool Halloween things to drive by and look at if we don’t have as many haunts go actually go in to this year.
