Guthrie Haunts is a haunted house experience which opened on September 22. The haunted house attraction is located at 4524 Riverside Circle in Guthrie, around 2 miles N. of Guthrie High School.
Owner John Pagonis is proud of the Guthrie Haunts attraction and the high-quality Halloween experience it brings to attendees. The stationary haunted house experience has many employees who are constantly ensuring that the visitors have the best experience.
“We’re very interactive,” Pagonis said. “Many of our employees are actors who have lines that they use in the haunt. Each customer that comes through our doors can customize their experience. You can differentiate what level of scare experience you would like, and we will accommodate. We have special rooms available for upgrades, and we have a transformation room. If you have an upgrade, we also have make-up artists do your make up to add to your experience. With upgrades and customization, you somewhat become a part of the production.
When you first arrive, the experience begins before you even enter the show with a magician doing magic tricks before you enter. Additionally, Blue Jays Happy Wagon and various other food trucks are available on site. From September 22 through November there will be various movie screenings set up on a theater screen on the premises.
“The experience is a show, we try to entertain our guests before they even enter the haunt,” Pagonis said. “We’re open primarily on weekends in October and we will do a special lights out edition in November.”
The Guthrie Haunts experience has caught the attention of national publications by being voted the 9th best haunt in the nation by Scare Face, an organization that reviews haunt and scare attractions. Closer to home, Guthrie Haunts was named the #1 scare attraction in the state for three years in a row by hauntedhouses.com.
