Haunted House preys upon phobias
Are you afraid of the dark? Are you terrified of going to the hospital or visiting the dentist? Superstitious about walking under a ladder or stepping on cracks in the sidewalk?
Phobias is the theme for this years Ghost Ridge and will include all different things people are afraid of.
“It’s not for the faint of heart at all,” said volunteer Tom Cameron, who has been putting together the annual haunted house for the past eight years.
Ghost Ridge will run Oct. 26-30, 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. each day at the Albion Fairgrounds.
There will be a family friendly viewing from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. on the Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
The lights will be kept on during this hour and the actors on set will not be jumping out and scaring visitors.
The Maple Ridge Lions will be running a food concession at the main kitchen, with proceeds going to the fireworks.
Fireworks will take place on Oct. 30th at 7 p.m.
Admission to the family friendly viewing is $4 per person and regular admission to the haunted house is $8 per person.
There will be group discounts for more than 12 people, but you must call ahead of time or wear the team uniform of the group you are associated with.
Parking is free.
The local community groups taking part in Ghost Ridge this year are The Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows Agricultural Association, Ridge Canoe and Kayak Club, the Bruins ladies rugby league, the Society for Creative Anachronism, and Ghost Ridge Haunted House Committee.
Over the past eight years Ghost Ridge Haunted House has donated more than $150,000 to local non-profit groups.
