The Boogie Man is alive and well in West Point

WEST POINT — For all the scream seekers out there, The Times has set out to tour some of the local haunted houses, rides, and events to provide feedback to those looking for spellbinding, frightfully delightful destinations this Halloween season.

Boogie Man’s Barn

Located in West Point, Ala., on the property of Steele Orchards.

The Background: This isn’t their first rodeo, Boogie Man’s Barn has been open to the public for four years. The hauntingly fun attraction offers terror-ific animations, hair-raising scare tactics, good vibrations, and a chainsaw or two.

The Reality: Groups enter at their own risk, and this gruesome ghoul guarantees all visitors will jump. Prepare for anything at this ghost post. It combines the spell-ectible local feel, with that of a high-priced glorified attraction.

Fun versus funds: A 15-20 minute tour costs a participant $10, giving the venue a thumbs up for being financially friendly.

The Rating: With a solid location and low ticket price, this Hallo-scream event gets five goosebumps out of five for a defrightful scare central.

The Basics: Boogie Man’s Barn is located at 1695 County Road 1141  Cullman, AL 35057. For more information, contact the Steele Orchard at 256-734-5249.

Steele Orchard puts on the haunted attraction each year. It will be opened October 30-31, from 7 p.m.- 11 p.m.

  • Stepping forward: The real Colbert

    Letterman changed the late-night TV game between his run on NBC's "Late Night" and starting the "Late Show" franchise in 1993. And while it's tough to replace a pop-culture icon, Colbert, in terms of pedigree and sense of humor, makes the most sense.
