HOUSE OF RESTLESS SPIRITS ADMISSION & PARKING: FREE
HOUSE OF RESTLESS SPIRITS DESCRIPTION: This Halloween Haunt – operated by Eric Maurin, a professional magician, and Rick Ouwerkerk, an aerospace engineer – was good enough to earn high praise from the folks who used to run Hallowed Haunting Grounds. While you take a tour around the old house not too far from the Pacific Ocean, a series of incredible ghostly manifestations tingle your senses, some in the yard and some in the windows. The effects are subtle but spooky, emphasizing imagination and atmosphere instead of shock. This is definitely a haunt that demands a careful gaze and patient appreciation, so that the phantoms may appear at their leisure.
OTHER HOUSE OF RESTLESS SPIRITS INFORMATION:
- The House is set in a quiet residential neighborhood, so keep the noise down.
- It may be hard to find parking on the block where the house is situated, but this one is worth the effort.
- The lines tend to be long, and the House of Restless Spirits shuts down promptly at closing time, so arrive early. Don’t show up at 10:59 on Halloween night and expect the haunt to keep going until the last in line have their chance to get in.
