Soul Takers Acres Haunted House cancelled this year
KOSCIUSKO COUNTY, Ind. -- Soul Takers Acres Haunted House will not open this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Kosciusko County Community Fair announced Monday.
They do expect to open the haunted house in 2021.
The announcement was posted to Facebook Monday morning.
Due to the global pandemic, COVID-19, Soul Takers Acres Haunted House will be suspending operation until the 2021 season, out of an abundance of caution. This is not a decision we take lightly, but after careful consideration - the possible risks far outweigh the reward.
Our cast, crew, and guest safety is our primary concern. With the possibility of a resurgence of COVID-19 cases, and the strict social distancing restrictions in place, we don’t believe it would be possible to successfully and responsibly operate a haunted attraction this Fall. The quality of our show would suffer greatly, and we would take the risk exposing our cast and guests.
With such an unknown future landscape, the time and effort needed to plan and operate our attraction, and our ultimate concern of guest and crew safety, the decision eventually became clear.
We will miss entertaining our fans and guests this Halloween season, but believe this is the right decision. We fully intend to open our doors in 2021 and hope that people respect our decision and how we came to this conclusion.
