There is always something new each year. The haunted house is torn down every year since the building is used for other events. Since 2005 we have been attending the Transworld Halloween Tradeshow and we always try to bring home the biggest and baddest thing year after year.

This is our 13th year. We have on the same grounds the Midwest Haunted Rails kid-friendly event that has been going on since 1998. over the years there have been other haunted houses. Then after the last one that was here we thought we could get into the haunted house business.

What's your favorite experience since opening Thrashers House of Terror?

Mount Pleasant.

How long is a typical haunt experience at Thrashers House of Terror from start to finish?

It depends on year after year. We have to take down the house since the building we use is used for other events throughout the rest of the year. so every year it has a new layout and new rooms and ideas. It can take 10 to 20 minutes.

Does Thrashers House of Terror's property have any real haunted history? Do you have a spooky encounter you'd like to share?


Can Thrashers House of Terror accommodate large groups? How many people can experience Thrashers House of Terror together as a group?

We try to keep groups small. Six people, but up to eight in a group. One thing that turns us off when we go to other haunts is when it becomes a giant line.
