Spirits on Sproat schedule & directions

Love classic monsters from the movies, TV, literature, and pop culture? Come visit Spirits on Sproat, celebrating our biggest season yet this year. In 2023, we'll be open 21 nights (weather permitting) and we're adding many new creatures and features designed to give you nightmares, as well as all the old favorites we've put on display since 2004. And, as is true every year, we're still home to the most terrifying live Michael Myers you've ever encountered (rest assured he won't scare little ones or seniors).

This popular home haunt showcases nearly 120 characters—most being custom-made replicas of your favorite scary movie creatures and horror icons—plus several originals. Enjoy humorous museum-like signage describing each character, creepy horror movie music mixed with sound effects, live scarers, two fun "find the monster" scavenger hunt games, front window music-and-lights show, and more. Check out Spirits on Sproat, which was named to the Horror Tourers Hall of Fame and featured twice on Svengoolie's TV program!

  • Property is monitored 24/7 via several video cameras and protected by a security system.

  • All dates and times are subject to change without notice due to inclement weather and unexpected circumstances.

  • We appreciate your generous donations (donation bins can be found in the front and the back), which keep Spirits on Sproat alive (and undead); 100% of funds collected are put back into our display.
