Haunted House Supports LYC

The Lafayette community center hosted it’s 10th annual haunted house on Friday, October 25 and Sunday, October 27, 2013.

The center hosted a “not-so scary” version for children 7 years old and younger from 5:00 to 7:00pm, and the “very scary” version for children 8 years and older from 7:30 to 9:30pm.  The admission fee was $3 for kids 7 and younger, and $5 for people 8 and older.

All proceeds from the haunted house went to various causes supported by the Lafayette Youth Commision.  Past recipients include the American Cancer Society, the Lafayette Library, Stanley Middle School, and the Lafayette Community Center Foundation.

According to sophomore Maddie Dolan, people go through the haunted house in groups of 5 or 6.  “I’ve been twice.  It was really scary because there’s actual people and they jump out at you and chase you.  You can yell at the people in it, so that’s fun,” she said.

According to sophomore Olivia Carver, the haunted house was much scarier than she would have liked.  “I dislike things that are frightening,” she said.  “It wasn’t my favorite genre of activity.  You have to like that kind of thing.”

“It was fun and I’m glad I can say that I did it,” Dolan said.  “It’s usually not super fun during, but after you’re like ‘Oh, that was fun’.”

According to Carver, despite the scariness of the haunted house, and her dislike for frightenings, she would like to go again next year.
