The phrase hotter than hell gets thrown around a lot during Kansas City summers, but two area haunted houses, The Beast
(1401 West 13th Street) and The Edge of Hell
(1300 West 12th Street), are taking the expression literally. A full two months before candy-clamoring younglings don costumes and storm metro neighborhoods, the West Bottoms haunts are offering late summer scares. Returning this year is The Beasts four-story slide and The Edge of Hells swinging rope bridge as well as scores of assorted monsters and undead.
Tonight, be the first to witness the dog days of summer transform into the hellhound eves of autumn as The Beast and The Edge of Hell reopen for the 2007 season. The fear factories open at 8. Advance passes $20 for one house, $33 for both are available at kcbeast.com/tickets.html. For more information, call 816-842-0320.
Fridays, Saturdays; Thursdays-Sundays. Starts: Sept. 1. Continues through Nov. 3, 2007
