About this Episode

Yes indeed, it's another episode that's divisible by four and that means it's time again to do the news!
It's a bit of a downer this go around as we have stories of one major haunted attraction that will be shuttering its doors in the new year and another popular one that won't even get to open this season. 
However, we do balance it out with news of one attraction that's opening after a long slog and yet another that's being funded, in part, by its local government.
All in all, this is a busy news show this week so kick back and relax as we go through the news.
This Week's Episode includes:
