Although it is well documented that a good scare can remedy hiccups and jumpstart idle hearts, scientists are baffled as to why it has no effect on diabetes. Experience the healing power of haunts with today’s Groupon: for $7, you get one ticket to the Abyss Haunted House in Channahon (a $15 value). This Groupon expires Sunday, October 31, 2010.
Set on the 158-year-old Dollinger Family Farm, Abyss Haunted House presents a terrifying journey not fit for the faint of heart. The brainchild of award-winning artist Paul Niemeyer, who has worked for Disney, MGM, and Paramount Pictures, Abyss offers a portal to a primeval darkness that will scare the living lint out of bellybuttons. Witness ghoulish scenes rendered in special-effect lighting, and fall victim to mild shocks, artificial fog, and intense sound.
The historical farm features multiple landmarks, including a barn listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The building, known as Grandma's House, was formerly Rutherford's Tavern, a one-time popular stagecoach stop. For an additional charge, visitors can take a spin around the corn maze, stop by the petting zoo, or pluck the dreamiest jack-o’-lantern candidate from the pumpkin patch.
Not recommended for children, pregnant women, or people with heart trouble or epilepsy. Children under 13 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
