This haunted house was started in 1974 by a couple of guys wanting to help the community. Each year, the display gets better and more elaborate. Beware – they lock the door behind you so there is no turning back once you’re there!
“40 years of us being in the spookin’ business. Hopefully you guys will come out and celebrate this milestone with us this coming Halloween season. We’re pretty “old school” when it comes to props and characters. There’s very few (if any) animated props because we feel like nothing can scare you quite like an actual person. We will be open October 24, 25 and 29-31. Again, hopefully you guys can come out and be a part of our 40th anniversary this year.” West Springs Spook House FB page
