Mashpee Haunted House Is a Fun and Free Affair Worth the Drive
The fourth coming of the annual Haunting of Morrisey Manor has arrived.
A couple of friends in Mashpee have created an impressive haunted house, just in time for Halloween.
"It's me and my fiance’s ex-husband, Sean Morrisey, that builds it every year," Ted Maniskas said. "Each year, we put on a massive Halloween haunted
walk-through that takes about 20-30 minutes just to even walk through."
Last year alone, Manikas and Morrisey had 500 people show up and they're hoping to break that record this weekend. They have a team of 20-30 volunteers who bring this frightful Halloween event to life.
"We do this solely for fun for our local and Cape Cod-area residents and even have people come down from Connecticut," Maniskas said.
Together, Maniskas and Morrisey are hosting this spooky event out of the kindness of their hearts and asking for nonperishable food donations on behalf of their church group That said, the 4th Annual Haunting of Morrisey Manor is completely free.
HWhat Prompted You To Do Something Like This?
“We started this because of Covid-19," Maniskas said. "When Covid came about and kids couldn't trick or treat, we created a walk-in event where nobody had to touch each other, and the candy came out of a special prop through a tube so nobody had to worry about that."
Mashpee Haunted House Hours
The event runs Oct. 27 and 28, 5:30 to 11 p.m., at 118 Scituate Road, Mashpee. More kid-friendly hours (not as scary) are 5:30 to 7.
