Nanton's popular "haunted house" is back again this Halloween night.

The popular attraction, which started as a simple passion project, has turned into a real Halloween gem with 12 volunteers assisting with the one-night event.

The haunted house includes a seven foot tall werewolf who's eyes light up, a three-headed dog who's eyes light up, a man in an electric chair, and much more.

In fact, there are some new scare-tactics this year but it's all a surprise.

Roxanne Hicklin, who owns the house and loves Halloween, says, "when I first started the haunted house, I only had one scary thing. The kids seemed to like it and would tell their friends who would then come to see it. So year after year, I kept adding more and more and it's just progressed."

Roxanne's husband is the engineer behind much of the props and it takes them the entire month of October to prepare.

Hicklin says, "last year we had close to 200 kids and 50 adults visit for the scare."

The house is located at 2403-27th Street in Nanton.
