The Wichita Eagle invited Newman University journalism students to review a few of the Wichita-area haunted house-type attractions offering scares and screams this Halloween season.
Udall Forest of Fear
7446 51st Road, Udall, 620-782-4014, udallforestoffear.com
Field of Screams and Clown Town
4055 N. Tyler Road, 316-303-2037, scaryprairiepines.com
Once people make it past the field, they enter Clown Town, which requires 3D glasses. At the end, visitors make their way through a ball pit and try not to lose their shoes or anything in their pockets. Overall, the visit won’t be that scary for older visitors but might frighten children. The attraction could use more scary actors.
The Haunted Cannery
10001 Highway 77, Burns, 316-320-4150, www.thehauntedcannery.com
The exit out of the building is thrilling. After reaching the fourth floor of the grain elevator, people slide out of the building via a slide made out of what appeared to be air duct vents. The fall is surprisingly quick – a nice adrenaline rush after the house is over.
