Local Haunted House Gives Back To Charity

Posted: Updated:
 YAKIMA, WA.- It's October, which means local haunted houses are preparing for their grand openings this weekend.

      The Madd Hatter Haunt in Yakima is celebrating its 8th anniversary this year.

The Madd Hatter Haunt, a popular haunted attraction in Yakima, opens Friday night, but KNDO got an early grand tour of all the scares and thrills they have planned for this year.

     If people are familiar with the Madd Hatter attraction they know the creators base the storyline on actual events.

     This haunted house is a bit different than others in the area though, the volunteers are able to donate 100 percent of the proceeds to a local charity of their choice.

     Creator Barbara Petry told us their volunteers have been doing this for years.

“A lot have been doing this for four or five years and working for different charities, some of the volunteers just come back because they love it so much,” Petry said.

      The attraction has 110 volunteers working per night.

     The event opens tomorrow night, so come early before the lines get too long.

     They're promising this year will be bigger and better than ever, with thrills you'll be dying to see.
