Requiem Haunted House in Caldwell supports anti-bullying campaign

CALDWELL - If you're looking to get into the Halloween spirit, there's a new haunted house in Caldwell, set up to scare up some support for anti-bullying efforts.

Requiem Haunted House at 810 Main Street is billed as the largest indoor haunted house in Idaho.
Among the many ghoulish attractions this year are the freak show and a coffin simulator called The Last Ride, which gives you the chance to see what it would be like to be buried alive.

Proceeds from the haunted house go toward the Don't Be A Monster program - a national campaign teaching an anti-bullying message in schools.

Owners of the haunted house say for them, the cause is personal.

"My daughter has had kids at her school commit suicide from being bullied. I also work at the Y, and I'm a big supporter of not being bullied," said Requiem Haunted House owner Krista Wood.

The owners plan to continue expanding the haunted house and to offer other events throughout the year.

Requiem is open Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays starting at 7:30 p.m.
