Siblings turn Gloversville home into haunted attraction

GLOVERSVILLE, NY (NEWS10) – For more than 20 years, a local Gloversville house has been doing their best to distribute scares during the Halloween season. And with this year potentially bigger than the last, a Capital Region family is inviting everyone to come out and share their spooky haunts.

When siblings Lucinda and Len Aldous bought their home at 82 Steele Ave. in the 1990s, they were immediately greeted with strange and inexplicable things that made them believe their house could be haunted. And with their love of Halloween, the idea of ​​creating a haunted house for others to enjoy came to life.

It features two spooky attractions that include a realistic storyline, jump alarms, animatronics, and more. Lucinda and Len have enlarged and perfected their home to become the perfect fear zone for everyone.

Those brave enough to set out will take part in a walk-style adventure that takes you through their property and ends in an old shed directly across from a cemetery.

The set-up takes more than two months. The attraction once cut out of cardboard has grown into a massive production with costumes, statues, and talent handcrafted and all focused on giving you the fear of your life. And while this might be their last year, Lucinda said the idea of ​​sharing something they both enjoy doing with each other – and maybe scaring a few people along the way – is what has maintained them for over two decades.

“You know, it’s so much fun bringing the community and the family together and it just makes us want to do it more,” she said. “I mean, the reactions are overblown. And we love to do it. We just like to scare people.

For those who wish to visit, the Haunted House will be open from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. every weekend until Halloween.
