We're scary for a good reason at Boo Crew Haunted House
We are a 100% volunteer organization, and the profits go to charity!
Owned and operated by the Rochester Lions Club, our haunted house has raised a zombie hoard-load of money for the community since we first opened our doors in 2000. As an added benefit, it provides the perfect venue for community members of all ages – from junior high students to senior citizens – to come together and work toward a common goal. Each night, more than 100 volunteers work at the haunted house. It warms a zombie’s heart to know we have so many demented – yet generous and caring – people in our community!
