Ahhhh, baseball season…… so far away.
One of the unique things about Modern Woodmen Park is that when the baseball season ends, things still tend to stay pretty busy. A big reason why? The Field of Screams haunted house, which opens once again tonight!
When we were going through the ownership transition after the 2007 season, we decided to bring back the haunted house. It had been very successful in 2005 but dropped the next year due to the difficulties involved with putting it together. After the front office has logged 15-20 hour days, seven days a week for 5-6 months during the baseball season, the idea of building and running a haunted house just 3-4 weeks later isn’t necessarily next on the wish list.
BUT… at the River Bandits, we like to go all out. We brought the haunted house back in ’07 and have been running it ever since to rave reviews.
This year, the theme is Pirates of the Mississippi.
I’m not going to give away too much, but I can tell you that it will be awesome. It will take you about 15-20 minutes to get through and you might cry. Really. If a few people don’t leave crying over the course of the month, then we’re not making it scary enough!
So come on by and see if you can beat our marauding pirates to the hidden treasure! Tickets are just $10 for individuals and $8 for groups of 15 or more.
We’ll see you at the ballpark… if you dare!
