More on Rosehill Haunt
Home haunts and displays are all about resourcefulness, and Rosehill Haunt creator Ben Conway uses everything he can get his hands on to craft his display of Halloween joy. A haunter since the age of 7, Conway finds himself in the company of – and literally friends with – fellow young creators Zion Fenwick of Twisted Minds Productions and Sam Kellman of The Opechee Haunt.
Compared to his peers, Conway takes a much more family-friendly approach, making his work accessible to everyone who might catch its moody lighting from afar. Rosehill can be compared to the beloved Boney Island, both for its love of skeletons and its use of animatronics to tell a story. In 2018, Rosehill Haunt put on “The Final Celebration,” which told the tale of a lonely skeleton who played a beautiful tune on the violin, attracting both the living and the dead to his resting place.
Notably, the 2018 haunt had a special, one night only walkthrough section that featured some light jump scares. This was an optional part of the production, and still family-friendly, but may signify a move towards a larger haunted maze in the future.
Many of the props have been passed on from other haunters, exemplifying both Conway’s resourcefulness as well as the kindness of the haunt community. Everything on display gives a warm and fuzzy feeling of Halloween joy – from the glowing orange jack-o-lanterns to the cobwebs draped every which way. Where other haunts try to push the boundaries of what constitutes Halloween, Rosehill takes the holiday back to its roots. Bring the kids and some hot apple cider, and let the Rosehill Haunt work some Halloween magic.
