Lee County--  For the past two Halloweens, a Lee County couple has opened their yard to the neighborhood. But they send people away screaming.

Tim and Simone Thompson converted the side of their home on Story Lane into a dark and scary haunted trail.

Big surprises are at every turn, from the Saw doll on his tricycle to Jason and his big knife ready to scare you. It took about two weeks and several people to get the haunted yard up and running, and it's all free.  

"It's something safe for the kids to do and for families, that's what we're really into, for the families to bring out their kids so they can have a good time and be safe," said Simone Thompson.

The Thompsons ran the haunted house in downtown Albany for several years but had to shut it down in recent years. They hope to reopen in another location next year so that people can enjoy several nights of scary fun.
