Missoula Haunted House Brings In Thousands

Posted: Updated:
MISSOULA -

A home is becoming one of Missoula's biggest Halloween attractions, bringing in up to 1,000 people on Halloween. It's being called Terror on 36th Street.

What started out as just a coffin sitting in the front yard of the Worley family's house, has become the well known local attraction, known as Terror on 36th Street.

"It started off as a coffin in the front yard. We'd hide in it and scare little kids, and it just grew from there," said co-creator, Melissa Worely.

Worley and her husband started the haunted house about 12 years ago, and it's popularity has only grown, with more than 400 people visiting it last weekend alone, and bringing in up to 1,000 people on Halloween.

"We have people come from Hamilton, Darby, and Arlee. We have people call and be like, are you doing it this year, are you doing it? So it's gotten pretty widespread," Worely said.

The haunted house earns its name taking visitors through at least six different spooky scenes including a clown hallway, a deadly campsite, and a cemetery, but what gives visitors the main fright is the characters that pop out through each scene.

"I'm going to be a mortician in a morgue this year, so people want to be careful when they come in, because I'm always looking for more body parts," said Terror volunteer, Brad Taylor.

Taylor has volunteered at the haunted house for the last six years. He said the haunted house gaining more and more visitors, shows how popular the holiday and its attractions are getting.

"Just in general with the zombie craze going on, I've seen a pretty big increase from year to year with people coming in," Taylor said.

Worley said part of what attracts people to Halloween, and the scares that come with it is the adrenaline rush.

"The adrenaline, everyone's really happy, it's just fun," Worley said.

Terror on 36th street opens up again Friday night from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. it's more kid friendly, and then from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. things get more scary. The address is 2101 36th Street Missoula. For more information you can find it on Missoula Events.
