Whether you’re looking for a good scare or some seasonal family fun, Castle Rock has a few tricks up its sleeve this Halloween. Here’s a peek at some of the spooky fun planned at several locations this month.
Castle of Terror: “Prison Break”
The frightful season comes to life at Castle Rock Fire and Rescue’s annual Castle of Terror. The scream-worthy haunted house will be from 7 to 10 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 13; Friday and Saturday, Oct. 19 and 20; and Friday and Saturday, Oct. 26 and 27, at the Fire Training Tower, 303 Malibu St. Does it get any scarier than a burned out training center? In fact, this haunted house is so scary, children under 12 are not admitted without an adult.
Tickets are $10 at the door, and all proceeds will go to the Castle Rock Fire and Rescue and Castle Rock Police Explorer programs.
