House of Horrors to stay open for Halloween after huge success

The ghosts and creepy crawlies were out to scare last night at Burnie’s House of Horrors.

Run by the Burnie City Council and the Burnie Show Society, the Geoff Bennet pavilion at the Wivenhoe Show Grounds was transformed into a spooky wonderland.

Burnie City Council Tourism and Marketing Manager Jenny Cox said, “We opened the House of Horrors last night (Saturday 29 October) from 5pm to 11pm to the public.

“For the cost of a gold coin donation you could wonder through if you dared! Over 1500 people braved the House of Horrors, even with the wet night we had.

“We were just blown away by the amount of people who were brave enough to enter and who came to appreciate the spooky set up.

“It was so popular we have decided to open the doors again tomorrow night (Monday 31 October) the actual night of Halloween. This gives anyone the chance that missed out to come and have a look.”

The doors to the House of Horrors will open at 6pm until 10pm. All are welcome to wander through the spooky setting for a gold coin donation. Access to the House of Horrors can be found through the Smith Street showground entrance.
