13 years of horror


What do 31, 17, 28 and 13 have in common? Mathematically, not a lot, but for the 31 lost souls roaming the 17 rooms of terror in John Benner’s Ozark Visions Haunted House, which opens September 28, and runs through October, it is the 13th year of providing a frightfully good time.
Benner said he had been lucky with his haunted houses over the years.
“We haven’t called the paramedics or anything…not yet. We’ve had people wet themselves, which is awesome,” Benner said.
Others knew when to say no to entering the Haunted House.
“We’ve had quite a few people get right to the front door then get so scared they just couldn’t do it,” Benner said.
The Haunted House is next door to Benner’s Ozark Visions Costume Shoppe at 22599 East Missouri 32. A corn field adjacent to it makes his Killing Field corn maze possible. The Carnivorous Carnival  features a variety of games like catapulting a bat into a bucket.
All three are open Friday and Saturday nights from 7 to 11 p.m. beginning Friday, September 28, and running through October.
