LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – Halloween activities are a go at Eagle Hollow Haunts although it may look a little different this year then the past 10.

“The only thing you won’t see a difference in is our level of scares” Rebeca Rose, co-owner of Eagle Hollow Haunts, said.

The themed haunted attractions are coming back for their 11th season at the Eagle Raceway. Usually, in a normal year there are three different haunts but in the wake of COVID and the unpredictable times, two of their indoor haunts will not be happening. The pandemic forced the staff to get creative and reverse their plans, they spent the year extending and intensifying their outdoor haunt.

“Our outdoor attraction could definitely be the one we could open so we literally spent all summer long, we started back in May through this weekend building up our attraction outside, what we call the Darklands” Rose said.

Although there was some cut backs this year, there was also an addition made that customers will see first hand this season when they open this Saturday.

Regulars wont recognize the new ‘haunted corn path’, with stalks towering over you. It has been added to the outdoor haunt, the Darklands.

You can enjoy all that Eagle Hollow Haunts has to offer as long as you wear your mask and social distance. The staff has created hand sanitizer stations as well as time ticketing, to cut down on people waiting in line. You can purchase your tickets and set your days/times online at their website.

The haunt experience opens this Saturday, October 3rd, and will be running Fridays and Saturdays the rest of the month, including Halloween. Gates will open at 7:30 p.m.
