Haunted House in Forest Lake, MN? Or Just a Nightmare on Jason Street?

By
Real Estate Agent with REMAX Specialists Minnesota License#90858
As a REALTOR® I know a Minnesota does not have to disclose paranormal activity when selling their home but this is one haunted house I wanted to share with everyone in the north and east Twin Cities metro. Paranormal activity runs rampant at this house just north of the lake, but this haunting is only once a year and is all in good fun! Last Halloween, I had the chance to visit this fantastic (and FREE) haunted house in Washington County just off of North Shore Trail. Chris Costello has set up his home on Jason St., in Forest Lake, MN for the past few years with monsters and creatures that are more treat than trick on Halloween. I took several photos of the festivities that were part fundraiser for the Salvation Army’s Red Kettle campaign but mostly just fun! Everyone’s all time monster movie favorites were there including zombies, mummies and Frankenstein! Some were stationary displays and more than a few were very dynamic….you never know which characters were going to jump out at you until they do! But all in all it was a very PG and family friendly event. Hopefully weather will permit and all the festivities will be a go again this Halloween. It is said that the display grows bigger each year! So if you have already picked up your pumpkin at Lendt’s in Wyoming and Nightmare at Pinehaven Farms is a bit too frightening, maybe a drive over to Jason Street will be perfect activity for your family. If you want to learn more about Chris’ annual event watch the first installment of the documentary originally produced for LATV Cable Channel 10 below (or visit the PyromaniacStudios YouTube Channel to view the entire show).

Lenn--Thanks!! If you watch the beginning of the documentary, it is my son Matt that does the intro. He actual did the entire video but the intro is my favorite part.

Hi Teri, So that's your son Matt at the beginning of the video...how cool! I watched the video and it's hard to believe he does all that for just one night. I can't begin to imagine how/where he stores all that stuff.

Lynda--Yep...that's Matt and he did the filming and editing too. Love the intro...very Disney-like...or atleast it shows we've been to the Haunted Mansion once or twice...lol. As for storage, there are lots of large garages around here!

Chris has a true art form going on there; that's the kind of neighbor I would want.
