Kevin Kelshaw reported to Historic City News that deputies and volunteers have taken nearly six weeks to set up one of the finest haunted houses in the area; and this year it’s the biggest ever.
Over 20,000 people have attended the St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office Horror Zone haunted house over the past eight years; last year over 6,000 attended making it the best year yet.
The St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office A.C.E. Program is sponsoring the haunted house this Halloween season.
The 9th annual “Horror Zone” will take place at the former Mikee’s store located at 2497 U.S. 1 South — in the Food Lion shopping Center.
The Horror Zone will be open on October 16th, 17th, and 18th, and then again nightly from October 23rd through the 31st. The hours of The Horror Zone will be from 5:00 p.m. until 11:00 p.m. on all nine nights.
Among the special effects are a vortex tunnel, a moving cart, a rocking hallway and even some brand new technological surprises!
Fans have come as far away as Tampa and Tallahassee over the past few years. At peak times, guests will gladly wait for hours to enter the haunted house. The fright-filled adventure takes between 10-12 minutes.
Admission to the most “Spooktacular” Haunted House in St. Augustine is just $5.00 person. Family discounts are available. All of the proceeds will go to the St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office A.C.E. programs. Be There and…Beware!
