Scarecrow Village open today, Sunday and next weekend

Visitors walking through the doors of Scarecrow Village Haunted Ridge will take a self-guided tour through the many creepy new sets and scenery of the macabre coupled with audio sounds and stories.

The Ridge is now geared for families and is running daytime hours. Even though it is light outside it is very dark inside. Admission is $7 per person ages 5 to 54, $6 for ages 55 and older, and free for ages 4 and younger, but they must be in a stroller or wagon. Admission is $5 for servicemen and women. This is a cash-only business. Days open this year are today and Sunday, and Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 24 and 25, from 1 to 5:30 p.m. all four days.

“We kind of compare it to the Call of the Wild but only on the scary side,” said owner Sandy Reebel. “We have over 15 audio stories that are told accompanied by an appropriate scene. With a 17,000 square-foot building, that allows for us to do a lot of scenes within it.”

The Ridge is located at 7065 Dietz Road, Alpena. For more, call 989-255-0209.
