Cookees Drive-In Haunted House 2009
We purchased the building next door and upgraded our haunted house from 200sq ft to over 1000sq feet!! Take a look at our pictures for a peek at what we were building. These were taken near the end of us building the haunted house. A few things are missing, but a video will have all of it.

To the right is the opening to the feast.
Two dummies were stuffed and
shown eating human parts. A

costume on, while sitting motionless.
People let their guard down thinking
he was stuffed also and ROAR, he
would jump up and scare them!

simple display. WRONG!

masks. We hung 9 hockey masks in
this hall and had three REAL people

People thought ALL the masks were
hanging there until they jumped out!!

At the end of the hall was the skull
animated shaker. Sound activated, it
would jingle and vibrate while small
lights highlighted the shaking skulls.
Cookees Drive-In Haunted House Halloween 2009 Hanging Zombies
The hall of zombies! This was foggy
and lit by a single black light bulb. As

lit, but you could not see the bubbles
coming at you in the dark hitting your
face! People would scream, "HEY,
SOMETHING WET TOUCHED
MY FACE!!"

This room was not quite finished at
time I took this. But, it had four nasty

wiggling when activated by lights. The
sounds were horrific and freaked me
out as we built the room.

a LOT of people just by being in the

he would JUMP up and the screams
would commence!

This is me at the end of the night. I had
my face totally black, a black long and
stringy haired wig, and a druid robe
with hood and rope around the waist. I
could go undetected in the dark as
people walked right past and I would
then follow and SCARE!!!
