Ghosts roam the earth to complete unfinished tasks, such as making peace with a loved one or picking up the dry cleaning. Witness the errands of the undead with today’s Groupon to Sioux Falls Jaycees Haunted House, located at the Fine Arts Building at the W.H. Lyons Fairgrounds on October 20–31. Today’s Groupon is not valid on Sunday, October 23, and this attraction is designed for visitors aged 10 and older. Choose between the following options:
- For $7, you get two tickets (up to a $14 value).
- For $13, you get four tickets (up to a $28 value).
As Halloween approaches, the ghastly residents of Sioux Falls Jaycees Haunted House spook the brave souls that traverse their sprawling abode. Like road maps labeled in Klingon, strobe lights and fog disorient guests as they weave through a menagerie of scary creatures powered by electronic wizardry. Up to 25 costumed volunteers surprise each visitor, summoning gaggles of goose bumps over the course of 20 minutes. With minimal gore and vats of maximum-hold mousse, this haunted tour makes a hair-raising outing for adults and children aged 10 and older. Younger fright seekers may stop by for Kids’ Day on Sunday, October 23 (today’s deal not valid for this event), when the monsters morph into adorable werewolf puppies. Consult the house’s schedule for its haunting hours.
In addition to filling guests with fright, Jaycees Haunted House fills local bellies with sustenance by collecting canned goods for food pantries. Composed of big-hearted volunteers from throughout the community, Jaycees hosts service projects throughout the year and leadership training during lunar eclipses.
Military, police, fire-department, and hospital employees, and attendees that donate canned food to the Jaycees’s collection, receive a $2 discount at the door.
Sioux Falls Jaycees Haunted House & Emily's
All manner of monsters prowl the halls of the Sioux Falls Jaycees Haunted House. Sadistic clowns smile from shadowed corners, herding visitors into a blood-spattered room where a ghoul in a straitjacket waits. Strobe lights and fog convince the senses that they've entered an otherworldly dimension or a very dusty camera, concealing the ghastly robotics and props lurking around each bend—such as a leering, demonic child named Hex. Though the attraction seeks to terrify, its ultimate goal is far more altruistic: ticket profits go to the Sioux Falls Jaycees, a community-service group whose volunteers don masks and gallons of fake blood to staff the entire house.
