Ghostly Manor: One Of America’s Best Haunts

Posted 09 Oct 2011 in HAUNT NEWS, HAUNT VIDEOS

Who would have thought dressing up 24 years ago as Elvira and a Monster during Halloween Trick or Treating would have evolved into owning and operating a year round Haunted House recognized as one of Americas Best Haunts?  Bill & Jayme Criscione, owners of Ghostly Manor Thrill Center in Sandusky Ohio didn’t get there overnight.  In fact, opening night for Ghostly Manor was on a Thursday night in September of 2001 … not a good time for a Haunted House advertising terror, horror and fear. Founded in 2001, Ghostly Manor Thrill Center is an indoor, multi-attraction family entertainment center, dedicated to providing safe, thrilling entertainment at minimal cost to patrons. Located three miles away from Cedar Point in Sandusky, Ohio, Ghostly...

I know it’s Saturday night and they’re teenagers; but they should still be here like they said two weeks ago. 7:45pm… We’ve all been there. That mysterious place between confidence and worry. Hoping your team arrives when they are supposed to. Trusting them to be as passionate as you are about this sport of chasing the scare.

Happy Birthday Scary Visions!

Posted 22 Sep 2011 in HAUNT NEWS

September 22, 2010….my very first post as a blogger. I was listening to a few podcasts that were guiding me to the interesting journey as a hobby blogger; not sure where the road was going to lead me.
