Iowa is home to a holiday-themed haunted house
The Halloween season has been over for weeks, but if you can’t live without it, there’s a way to add a little Halloween to your Christmas!
According to official siteThe slaughterhouse welcomes children aged 6 and up “Jingle Hell” with Krampus and his band of “H’elves.” The page reads:
“The Christmas Beast has chewed through the power lines, so this event will be a BLACKOUT show, which means all the attraction’s lights will be turned off. Your party of brave visitors will receive red Rudolph Glow necklaces to help you navigate through our underground lair.”
The Krampus Haunted Vacation Experience is scheduled for Saturday, December 17, with sessions starting every 15 minutes between 6 and 9 p.m. It costs $30 per person, and guests can meet Krampus and take pictures with his “Holiday Ghouls.” The website says tickets will sell out, so guarantee a spot by buying yours online in advance HERE.
The slaughterhouse is located at 500 Locust Street in Des Moines and just completed its 10th Halloween season. The haunting Facebook page said it was their “largest to date,” and critics praise the company for having great actors and being kid-friendly. You can learn more about the haunted attraction and its history on the official website HERE.
