Spirits on Sproat schedule & directions

Love classic monsters from the movies, TV and pop culture? Come visit Spirits on Sproat, marking its 16th season in 2019. This year, we’ve rebranded our display (check out our new website at SpiritsOnSproat.com) and will spotlight both our back yard and front yard with several new figures and props designed to give you nightmares. We’ll also break our own record for dates of operation: 20 evenings total this autumn (weather permitting), including, for the first time ever, a Nov. 1 encore date!

This popular home haunt showcases over 75 replicas—most custom-made—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 recently named to the Horror Tourers Hall of Fame and featured on Svengoolie's TV program!
