(KUTV) A Haunted House in Lindon is sure to give you a spook this Halloween – but this home haunt is really just a glimpse of a much bigger production.
“Evermore” was created by Ken Bretschneider and is located in the front yard of 126 South 140 West in Lindon.
Bretschneider says they’ve been doing they home haunt for five years. Bretschneider’s home is the actual haunted house which is decorated into a pirate shipwreck while his property across the street becomes a haunted Victorian graveyard. All the actors and artisans involved are also local – something Bretschneider sets apart his haunt from the others.
“Utah’s got some amazing talent, and we’ve collected that talent to be able to make this happen,” said Curtis Hickman, Evermore Art Director.
However, the Evermore Pumpkinfest is actually just a small sample of what Bretschneider is working on.
He says he is building a theatrical theme park on 50 acres featuring a Victorian medieval village that will change with the seasons. Bretschneider calls it "the world's largest haunt attraction to a Christmas fantasy and a fantasy carnival setting in the summer time."
Bretschneider says the theme park has been a longtime dream of his. He sold his tech company “Digicert” – the third largest of its kind in the world.
Hickman says that everything from the current Evermore will be moved to the theme park. Construction on Evermore will begin in the spring.
The Evermore Pumpkinfest is located at 126 South 140 West in Lindon. They’re also having a Pumpkin Carving Contest with a grand prize of $1,000. Carved pumpkins can be dropped off Tuesday and Wednesday.
