The third annual Haunted House of Horrors was created and hosted by Venture Crew Troop 225 at the Glenwood Springs Mall and is the group's biggest fundraiser of the year. This creative, scary and highly-technical house of horrors has ten rooms, each of which features a different nightmarish theme, and are not recommended for children ages six or younger. Crew member Acacia Carmichael, 16, of Silt, demonstrates just one of many special effects. Venture Crews are co-ed, youth-led clubs connected to Boy Scouts of America. The Haunted House of Horrors will be open for visitors this Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. and on Halloween, October 31, 6 p.m. to 11 p.m. The mall doors will be open late to accommodate these special hours.
