ABC 6 braves the “Island of Terror”
(ABC 6 News) – If you’re looking for a last-minute scare leading up to Halloween, you might want to stop by the “Island of Terror” in Maple Island.
Starting with a haunted house, those who are brave enough to wander will find themselves in different scenes like a haunted school bus, a graveyard, and a forest full of cobwebs and spiders.
“A lot of scares, a lot of hard work, a lot of time and effort,” said owner Josh Cornelius who owns the attraction with his wife, Kiersten.
“Good to get together with family and friends.”
Among the 30 actors helping to scare people, it’s a family affair for the Cornelius’ with their sons helping out.
Bruce and Brenda Jensen who are good friends of the Cornelius’ also help run the attraction. Brenda helps make the props, and they both help with admissions.
“It’s about a 10-to-15 minute walk depending on how fast they walk, or how scared they get,” said Bruce Jensen.
“A lot of them will get scared and run through lights, and we have to fix those also.”
The Jensens also own Smokin Bros BBQ which caters the attraction along with Geneva Bar.
The “Island of Terror” is open October 28 and 29 from 7-10 p.m. Admission is $15 per person with admission at $7 for those under the age of 15.
“The Island” is located at 85210 Shady Lane, Hollandale, MN. The attraction is technically in Maple Island, although your GPS will likely guide you to Hollandale, which is correct.
