Haunted House


From 2002-2017, LIGHTNING JOE'S GUITAR HEAVEN has hosted a haunted house at their shop. They call it "Lightning Joe's Haunted Passage." In fact, the entire Village is open house to thousands of trick or treaters of all ages on All Hallows Eve from 3 pm in the afternoon until 5pm in the evening. Lightning stays open longer for the people who have to work that day, usually until 6pm or " 'till they stop comin' in." There is no fee for the show, which takes the Lightnings about 40 hours to set up and another 20 hours to tear down. "We do it for the community." It has become the largest attraction in the Village on Halloween and a line forms at the Stairway to Heaven door, continues around the corner on Bridge Street and it's at least a block long during peak hours. Wait times can vary from 1 to 20 minutes and it's well worth the wait. The show features several live actors as well as a large variety of animatronics and special effects. After braving the Haunted Passage, visitors are rewarded with Halloween treats. Check out the slide show below and catch some of the action...
