“SAN BERNARDINO – When the mummified remains of the ancient Egyptian high priest Imhotep rise up and speak, visitors will have a horrifyingly fun time.
The mummy is a $5,000 animatronic wonder, according to “Hauntmaster” Brian Correl, volunteer electronic guru for the Friends of the CID Haunted House.
“Imhotep was a real Egyptian ruler, but here he is the villain. The Egyptian Room is amazing – the walls are painted beautifully,” said the 49-year-old Yucaipa resident.
“Like last year, our theme is “Classic Horror Movies,” but we’ve added some new characters, new artistry and a new water-feature swamp.”
Correl, who admits to being a “wannabe” Disney Imagineer, has conjured up shadowy corridors – from the Egyptian tomb to Dr. Frankenstein’s laboratory, where a whole new “Transformation” wall adds a touch of frightening reality” – via Contra Costa Times.
Frightful fun takes place from 6 to 11 p.m. on Oct. 26-28, and 31 at 2700 Little Mountain Drive, San Bernardino (corner of 27th Street).
Admission: $7 adults; $5 children 4-12; children 3 and younger are free; $20 family of five
