‘Nightmare’ Isn’t Your Typical Halloween

by Christopher O'Brien

CIMG9380The UFO hovering near Lakewood Rd. isn’t a meetingplace for Area 51 enthusiasts – but a new local business that is one the area’s most sought after fightening attractions.

Even though Halloween is over, there is still one more weekend for folks to visit the Nightmare on Wolcott St. just over the Waterbury line across from Planet Fitness. Visitors will be frightened and amazed by animatronics and over twenty actors playing zombies and Freddie Kreuger.

CIMG9238Renee Dearborn tells the Whisper that her father -in-law Bill Anderson’s started the attraction years ago in his Silver Pond Drive garage into a haunted house for neighbors and area kids. The hobby outgrew his space and in 2012 converted twenty rooms of the vacant Wolcott Street building into a full scale attraction. Now in its second year, the house has expanded to 55 rooms of terror. Twenty actors add screams, zombies and terrifying realism to your cautious walk towards the exits… if you make it.

Nightmare on Wolcott Street is open Friday and Saturday from 6 pm- midnight and on Sunday from 6 pm- 11 pm for its final weekend. Admission is $10 per person. Caution is advised for anyone under the age of 12.
