Shaking skeletons, a pop-up werewolf, a bloody butcher, a freaky clown, a rattling electric chair, fake explosions, a scary Santa, and a creepy cemetery are among the many reasons to take the dare and enter Scream Xtreme’s Halls of Terror on St. Feriole Island in Prairie du Chien. The final three days of the haunted house are this Friday and Saturday, Oct. 25 and 26, and also on Halloween, Thursday, Oct. 31. Hours are from 7 to 10 p.m. each night. This year’s Lights on Kid Friendly Haunt is scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 26, from 2 to 6 p.m.
Last year, over 1,000 people were frightened at the Halls of Terror, which was held at the Cedar Building on St. Feriole Island for the first time in 2012. This is the second year it will take place at the building, and Scream Xtreme just signed a three-year agreement with the city to keep it there.
