The Sioux Falls Jaycees have been putting the "spook" into Halloween for 43 years, so as you can probably imagine, they're pretty good at it! Every year they let their creativity lead them into new, even creepier territory.

This year's Haunted House, at the W.H. Lyon Fairgrounds, is no exception, as they are featuring something called "Emily's Closet", a 3-D experience which puts you into a nightmare you can't escape!

You'll have plenty of opportunities to experience the house with the generous schedule:

Friday, October 27: 7 p.m.–12 a.m.
Saturday, October 28: 7 p.m.–12 a.m.
Monday, October 30: 7 p.m.–9:30 p.m.
HALLOWEEN Tuesday, October 31: 7 p.m. Until the Crowd Dies

As always, the Jaycees are offering reduced admission prices when you bring canned food items for Feeding South Dakota.

Admission info:

Regular: $15
Discount: Up to $3 Off with Canned Food Donation ($1 Off Per Canned Good Up to 3 Per Person) (Only One (1) Discount Per Person)                                                        Fast Passes are available for an additional $5 on Fridays, Saturdays and Halloween. They will take credit cards but it will cost you a $1 processing fee.

 If you're planning on going, there are a few things the Jaycees think you should know.

Rules: This event is not recommended for pregnant women or people with high blood pressure, back or neck or heart ailments. Children under 10 may be best suited for Kid’s Day (Oct. 22nd). Parents and guardians are responsible for the safety for the children in their care. We use strobe lights, fog machines, animatronics, and loud noises to scare you. Please do not touch props, animatronics, or volunteers; and we will try not to touch you. Also, no flashlights, cell phones, lighters, glow necklaces, or weapons are allowed. No refunds will be given after the purchase of a ticket. We reserve the right to refuse service and reserve the right to escort you from the premises."

If you have a hankering to get in on the spooking, the Jaycees are always looking for volunteers too. For more information checkout the Sioux Falls Jaycees online and on Facebook.
