Earthbound spirits still care about the planet, which is why haunted houses feature lights that suddenly go out and showers that shut off after three minutes. Feel the phantom power with today's Groupon: for $15, you get two VIP to the Huntington Jaycees Haunted Hotel - 13th Floor (a $30 value). The hotel accepts visitors from Friday, September 30, through Monday, October 31. VIP tickets are fast passes that allow guests to skip the line upon arrival.
The thespians of the Huntington Jaycees Haunted Hotel spook and startle adults and teens for 20–40 minutes with creepy masks, a bit of gore, and new additions each year. VIP ticket holders bypass frighteningly long lines to proceed down black-light-illuminated corridors, suites, and continental buffets of horror. Three-dimensional illusions and eye-popping artwork adorn hotel walls, and cross-dimensional odors evoke more horror than a waft from an egged house.
A rebuilt facsimile of the fictitious Warwick Hotel, the Haunted Hotel appears to exhibit paranormal activity as its proprietor, Damien Warwick, purportedly practiced ghoulish behavior within its walls before the inn succumbed to fire on October 13, 1904. The Haunted Hotel is recommended for adults and teenagers, though younger children are permitted if accompanying parents deem the experience appropriate.
