Spooky buy: land bought for new haunted attraction
CENTRAL- Owners of the haunted house in downtown Baton Rouge are moving forward with plans to expand the attraction.
The 13th Gate producers purchased more than 74 acres at the intersection of Joor Road at Mickens. They spent $550,000 on the property.
Neighbors are not fighting the project and Metro Council recently gave it approval.
Organizers said it will take about two years to build and be family friendly.
It will operate along with the haunted house in Baton Rouge, which is not closing.
