Amity Road Horror Ready For Second Season Of Fright

Amity Road Horror, a Halloween attraction located on 667 Amity Road in Bethany, is opening for its second season September 27. Eric Soltis, along with a dedicated crew that includes his girlfriend and also his brother, built the horror attraction a year-and-a-half ago and expand it daily. A licensed electrician by trade, Soltis used his skill and tenacity to build an amazing maze of fright that centers on the story line of an abandoned mine. As the story goes, the mine was unknowingly built in 1953 on the site of an ancient burial ground by its founder, Edward Von Hauntington, who later went crazy and started killing his workers. Convicted of murder and committed to a mental institution, Hauntington eventually escaped and now regularly scares those willing to pay. Soltis’ skills as an electrician were put to good use at the exhibit, as motion detectors set off lights, air compressors and water sprays throughout the maze, and lightning and thunder fill the forest the entertainment attraction is located in. Dozens of actors work in concert with the electronics to scare the visitors at every turn. The scares run through October 31. Please visit http://www.amityroadhorror.com for more information.
