For the past 27 years, folks have prepped for Halloween by strolling through the two-mansion attraction, which features a series of catacombs, mazes, and bayou-like swamp rooms. Theres even an adjacent cemetery where ghouls and goblins lurk behind every tombstone. Our show is not geared toward kids, and we dont try to fool people into thinking otherwise, says Kirby. And we certainly dont recommend it for those with heart conditions.
A computer consultant by day, Kirby -- who plays one of the groups sinister physicians -- admits he unleashes a wicked twin whenever he slips into character. I have to be serious at my job the rest of the year, he says. So every [house visitor] is that guy who cut me off in traffic or that slow, annoying lady in front of me at the grocery store. Its very therapeutic.
Fridays, Saturdays, 8 p.m.-midnight; Thursdays, Sundays, 8-10 a.m. Starts: Sept. 21. Continues through Oct. 28, 2007
