After a holiday in Los Angeles
some years ago, the Horton Family decided to bring some of the Halloween spirit back to Brisbane
and The Haunted Ranch was born in 2008 as a small display. Growing in strength from year to year, the event is now fully themed in detail and scale and includes a cemetery with over 100 items ranging from small jack-o-lanterns
, life size static, and animatronic props such as reapers, ghosts
and jumping spiders. Special effects of holographic projections and low lying fog machines along with custom made fencing and tombstones are all part of the reality at The Haunted Ranch.
The event is suitable for the whole family; however it is encouraged for small children to visit the display before dark. A dedicated "scary area" is set aside for older kids and brave souls. In the event of wet weather only a small amount of the display will be installed due to safety concerns. Time for the event is from 4.00pm to 9.00pm.
