Topeka Haunted Woods and WSGA bring haunted house to students

The Washburn Student Government Association is partnering with Topeka Haunted Woods to bring Washburn students a haunted house from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 19. It will be located at the Topeka Haunted Woods and is expected to be packed with intriguied students.

There are several activities going on around the haunted house as well. All you have to do is bring your Washburn ID to get the cost sliced in half. There will be some stars from AMC’s hit show “The Walking Dead” in attendance for a meet and greet. The event will also include games such as zombie laser tag. Students will be able to bring their fiends and enjoy a spooky night out. 

“I am really excited to go to the haunted house! It seems like a really good opportunity to experience things that you might not have experienced before. Along with that, The Walking Dead is my favorite show right now and I am impatiently waiting to meet some of the stars that will be there,” said Faydra Knox, a sophomore human services major. “I don’t know who exactly it will be, but I know that whoever it is will be great and I look forward to everththing that will happen.”

The goal of the haunted house is to get the Washburn community integrated with the Topeka community. It also provides students with a spooky break from their mid-term studies. 

Angela Gray, a sophomore English education and theater major, loves the spooky season and will play a part in the house itself.

“This is going to be a great opportunity for people to have fun with Halloween-themed things. I myself will be in it and I really want everyone to witness the fun and hilariously scary costumes that we will wear,” Gray said. “Some of the profits will go to the Washburn Players, who will be helping do the event. So come and have a great time, it will be worth it.”
