After a three-year hiatus, this long-standing tradition resurrected itself with more scares and spooks.

Haunted house fans, rejoice! Reinke Brothers has brought back its Haunted Mansion attraction to give you frightmares this Halloween.

After a battle over hail-damaged roofing between insurance and Littleton officials, and unprecedented rain in 2015 that caused over $3 million in damage, the haunted house went dark … and not in a scary way.

The store continued on in the best way it could get by, and in 2018 with the troubles behind them, the Reinkes began rebuilding the store and attraction. It took six months and is still a work in progress, but the almost 50-year old haunt is back in business.

And, the Haunted Mansion is reported to be bigger and better than ever. With a focus on gore-free, but most definitely not scare-free fun, you’ll encounter clowns, dancing skeletons, swamp folk, and a whole lot more. 

The attraction opened on September 24, and it will remain open seven days a week until November 4.

If you're looking for something a little tamer than terrifying, Reinke Brothers offers a Lights-On Tour, that allows you to see behind the scenes of the sets. The characters and special effects are mostly gone, so this is also a great tour for kids. These tours are every Saturday & Sunday from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. through November 4.

And, of course, a trip to down terror lane wouldn’t be complete without haunting the Reinke Brothers Store, which may be the best Halloween shop anywhere.

Send in the clowns (with donuts) and ruin friendships this Halloween season.
