“Three haunts to terrify you. If you want super-duper, store-bought fancy props, don’t come here.  If you just want to go thru the darkest, dingiest, creepy-decorated rooms,  come see us.  We will chase you with cut-off heads and legs, let the blood drip on you, startle you in black rooms with the sound of rusty saws, make you crawl, dance with the clowns, laugh at you when you pee your pants from fright, and watch you run for your life from our chainsaw buddies.   Fright Manor Haunted House is just good plain ole scary fun.”
