Haunted house at­tracts up to 500 spooky children

Ayrshire Post - - News -

Young­sters in dis­guise as ghosts and ghouls braved a haunted house last week.

The kids popped on their scari­est cos­tumes to step in­side the home on Holm­ston Drive - and boy were they in for a treat.

Screams could be heard as they made their way passed the gate­keeper, through clouds of smoke dodg­ing witches and skele­tons on the way.

Many tricks and treats were had along the way as the young­sters reached the other side - clutch­ing a bag full of good­ies.

Coun­cil­lor Chris Cullen said: “We do it ev­ery year and get be­tween 400 - 500 kids com­ing.

“It started in 2009 with the nor­mal dec­o­ra­tions and has grown ex­po­nen­tially each year with the kids now mak­ing their way in through the front of the house and ex­it­ing via the rear with their good­ies.

“The house is dec­o­rated a week be­fore­hand and is kit­ted out with lights, props both in­side and out, smoke ma­chines.

“And we make up 500 goodie bags ev­ery year.”
