In celebration of Halloween, Superdale has created the mother of all haunted houses in There! The annual event held at Big Easy Island just seems to get bigger and better with every season.

Make sure to bring a friend or two on your journey throughout the never-ending Haunted House. If you get lost, remember there is safety in numbers. Start your tour at the Haunted Big Easy Island. As you cross the bridge over the blood bayou you will find a book of scary stories. Read on about the terrible things that happened to a little old lady. Begin your journey through the house of horror and answer clues to a haunted quest. The quest runs throughout the endless rooms decorated with corpses, headstones, creepy crawlers, vampires and things that go bump in the night.

Superdale has really outdone himself this year! There are over 330 drops that have gone into creating the haunted masterpiece. We spoke with Superdale and he had mentioned that he had over 72 hours of planning and building to create the haunted house for this year. There are already plans in the works for next year’s build.

It is really a horrific sight to see and one you won’t want to miss! You can catch one of the Haunted Quests or drop by the Haunted Big Easy Island anytime day or night to take a tour of the biggest haunted house in There.
