Haunted by claustrophobia

Halloween Haunted House in Invermere Friday, Oct 25th and Saturday, Oct 26th

“It’s fun to be scared once in a while,” said Richard Matthews, one of the spooktacular forces behind the annual Invermere Haunted House that changes location and themes each year to keep your frights fresh.

This year’s haunted house is in the alleyway between Lambert Insurance Agencies and Birchwood Restaurant at 722 13th Street to play off claustrophobia fears and allow for “more scares in a shorter period of time,” he said.

The “family friendly” version of the haunted alleyway will run from 7 p.m to 9 p.m. on Friday, October 25th. While organizers will hold back with the scares and gore, Mr. Matthews warned: “bring your kids at your own caution.”

The full scare will take place the following night from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Saturday, October 26th. It’s not for kids or the faint of heart, and anyone under 18 needs to be accompanied by a guardian.

“We go full bore. There’s gore. There’s more intense scares,” he said.

Those who survive are invited for a costumed afterparty at ULLR Bar.

Entry for either night is $5 for those under 18 and $10 for adults.

Fire Vixen Emporium and ULLR Bar host the annual event, with profits from one year going into the following year’s fright nights.
