If you are looking for a scare this Halloween, the Southampton Center may just have what you are looking for.
The cultural center, located at 25 Jobs Lane in the Village of Southampton, is set to open a haunted house later this month, designed by Hampton Bays resident Oscar Gonzalez, who is opening another 1,500 square-foothaunted house on the North Fork, called Voodoo, on Friday.
Gonzalez, who has an extreme love of Halloween, has been designing haunted houses for several years now, opening his first at La Maison Blanche Hotel and Restaurant on Shelter Island.
The Southampton Center's haunted house will open on Oct. 26 with a Halloween party at the center. The party, which will run from 7 p.m. to midnight, will feature open bar, food, music, dancing and costume contests with cash prizes.
Tickets to the opening night Halloween bash, which are available to those who are 21 and older, are $60 in advance and $75 at the door. Costumes are required. Tickets can be purchased here.
Those looking to just experience the Haunted House, can visit the center on Oct. 27 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. and Oct. 31 from 6 p.m to 8 p.m. Tickets are $5 at the door.
Family friendly hours with the lights on for a “not-so-scary” experience, recommended for families with children 8 years old and older, will be Oct. 27 from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Oct. 31 from 3:00 pm – 6pm. Recommended for ages 8 and up. Spooktacular lights out hours for those who dare will be Sunday 5pm – 8pm and Thursday 6pm – 8pm.
Volunteers are also needed to help scare patrons. For more information, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
