The Shriners Haunted Mansion brought spooky magic and wonder to Halloween with state of the art special effects and holographic ghosts instead of scenes of blood and gore. This family friendly attraction was open for 10 days each October and attracted over 18,000 visitors anually. It took a crew of 12 over 30 days to assemble its series of corridors and spooky themed areas. Visitor delighted in witnessing effects and illusions that seemed to defy logic as well as enjoyed an atmosphere most often described as " like something from Disneyland."
The Haunted Mansion occupies all 20,000 sq feet of the Confederation building at London's Western Fairgrounds when assembled and fills 5 semi trailers in its unassembled state. It has raised many tens of thousands of dollars for children's hospitals.
