Haunted house in North Tonawanda supports local charities

'Niagara Nightmare' at 870 Lee Ave. is raising money for Ten Lives Club and Oishei Children's Hospital.

NORTH TONAWANDA, N.Y. — If you are looking for something fun to do this weekend for Halloween, look no further than 'Niagara Nightmare'. It's a local homemade haunted attraction at 870 Lee Ave. in North Tonawanda.

Kyle King and his family have been putting on the attraction for five years. Last year the haunted house raised money for the Niagara County SPCA. 

"Last year we raised almost $7,000, in I believe eight nights. The year prior to that we raised about $6,500. All of that went to the Niagara SPCA and this year I am hoping we do better than that," King said.

Admission is $7 for adults and $5 for children. The proceeds from this year will support Ten Lives Club and Oishei Children's Hospital.

The attraction has been open every weekend 7 p.m. - 10 p.m. during the month of October.
