Shadowlands Haunted House resurrects Halloween attraction on the North Shore

Shadowlands Haunted House resurrects its Halloween attraction on the North Shore. The haunted house relaunches for scares in Mandeville after a seven year hiatus.

Haunted house producers say guests can step into scenes inspired by classic horror movies inside the new 8,000 square-foot haunted attraction built inside of a steel-structured warehouse.

Visitors will journey through an old, decrepit and abandoned house with twists and turns depicted in old horror movies like “Texas Chainsaw Massacre” and “House of 1000 Corpses.” The new haunt will feature a variety of sets and scenes with a myriad of old-style scares, some high-tech special effects and amimatronics.

Anna Dufrene, who hold roles as event and social media coordinator and assistant cast director, says she hopes the new Halloween experience will fill “the void of a haunted house” for some North Shore thrill-seekers.

“We live and play on the North Shore and wanted to bring a professional haunted house to the people of Saint Tammany,” Dufrene said.

Shadowlands originally opened under the original owner Danny Tastet in 2009, before the team took a few years off after closing in 2011, Dufrene said. Now, the attraction relaunches after bringing in new talent, partners Daniel Brodnax and Craig Dufrene, who is the animatronics and effects specialist.

The attraction is recommended for ages 10 and older, but Dufrene says younger aged children have also enjoyed the attraction.

Shadowlands Haunted House opens Fridays through Sundays through Oct. 14. The site will open Thursdays through Sundays through Oct. 28. It will also open on Oct. 30 and Oct. 31.

General admission is $15 per person. Groups discounts are available for 15 or more people. Details about online ticket purchases can be found here.

Shadowlands Haunted house is located at 1750 South Lane, off Highway 59, in Mandeville.
