Spirits on Sproat schedule & directions

Love classic monsters from the movies, TV, literature, and pop culture? Come visit Spirits on Sproat, marking its 18th season this year. In 2021, we're introducing brand new animatronics and other props designed to give you nightmares, as well as all the old favorites we've put on display since 2004. This year, we plan to be open as usual in October, but may have to follow the same rules we instituted last year to protect against the coronavirus:
  • Any visitors to our home haunt may be required to wear a face mask or Halloween mask (or both, so long as your mouth and nose are covered), so please bring one with you. Check signage on our driveway for details. 
  • Please try to maintain social distancing of at least 6 feet away from other visitors, too. 
This popular home haunt showcases nearly 100 figures and props—most being custom-made replicas of your favorite scary movie characters 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 cameras and protected by security system.
  • Display may be too intense for young children (ages 5 and up recommended). All children 12 and younger must be accompanied by an adult.
  • All dates and times subject to change without notice due to inclement weather and unexpected circumstances.
