Halls of Horror: Another Ladera Ranch Haunted House

We previously told you about the great Ladera Ranch haunted house at 6 Shepherd Court here.  Can’t get enough scares?  Here’s another local haunted house for you to try: Halls of Horror is back in 2013 at 17 Plum in Ladera Ranch.  The dates are different than the Shepherd’s Court house, so you have a chance to extend your Halloween thrills and chills for a full week!  This haunted house is open Friday and Saturday night during the weekend before Halloween (October 25-26) from 6:30 PM until 9:30 PM, and Halloween night from 6:30-10:30 PM.  Admission is free, but donations are accepted.  They also have a Facebook page here, although there isn’t much additional information there yet.
