Something to Scream About - $2 tickets to Celebrate 45th Season
1975 Opening Prices at Edge of Hell & Beast Haunted Houses Opening Day, Sept. 6
KANSAS CITY, MISSOURI — Edge of Hell and Beast Haunted Houses will open this Friday for their 45th season. The masterminds, Full Moon Productions, are extending a special thanks to the community with $2 tickets, their price in 1975. These original haunted houses, live in the original Kansas City. In fact, Edge of Hell is the oldest, continuously operated, commercial haunted house in the nation.
Rocky Horror Picture Show, Jaws, and the opening of Edge of Hell Haunted House were all exciting in the metro in 1975. Edge of Hell’s first season in the West Bottoms was in 1988 after moving from the River Market. The city boasted the title haunted house capital of the world because of so many haunted houses in the 1980’s. As scaring became more sophisticated, counting animatronics, costumes, makeup, high-tech illusions, and more, Edge of Hell Haunted House became the sole survivor. In 1991, Full Moon Productions added Beast, and more recently also added Macabre Cinema Haunted House.
Edge of Hell was the creation of Amber Arnett-Bequeaith’s family. Today, Amber, aka ‘Queen of Haunts’ and her uncle, Monty Summers, still run it. Her grandfather was a preacher, hence the idea of a haunted attraction that explores people making choices, confronted by their phobias, then choosing wrong and going from heaven to hell. Every year it has some changes and enhancements, but the scares behind this haunt theme continues to be a thriller.
Opening weekend will also include the Beast. Macabre Cinema opens Friday the 13th. Full Moon Productions also expanded to offer Full Moon Escape Rooms, Festival of the Full Moon, and a Ghost and Gangster Tour.
