Happy Halloween from Ghoul Mansion in Sharon

Posted: Updated:

SHARON, Pa. - The rainy Halloween night may have kept some trick or treaters off the streets but it didn't keep them out of some local haunted houses.

For 20 years Ghoul Mansion in Sharon has been scaring. A lot.

Each year hundreds of people walk through this haunted house looking for a fright.

And they get more than one.

"We change things up every year - not the entire place, that would be impossible to do - but we do change things up," explains Jim Bugos with Ghoul Mansion. "One of the advantages we have of being in this building is we can work on it year round so as soon as spring comes, we're here working on it. We're already working on changes for next year."

Some weekends Ghoul mansion has as many as 75 frighteners working.

So what makes someone want to do that?

"When I was little, I loved Halloween," says Steven Horr of Hermitage. "I loved scary things growing up, watching scary movies and all the blood and gore."

For some people it's actually a way to overcome their fears.

"This is my first year and I've always been scare of all this, I've never been inside a haunted house until this year," says Christchianna Goldner of Brookfield. "It helps me get over my fear of everything so I'm not scared anymore."

Some people were just born to do this.

Twitch says he's been playing a wicked clown here for 13 straight years.

"I've had people in convulsions in my scene carried out on a stretcher," the wicked clown says. "I like it when they get really dramatic about; it's a great fear to work off of. I love it."

Ghoul Mansion continues through Saturday night.
