Okay now this is such a dope story! A 7th grader from Woodland Hills made his own haunted house that he self-funded.
“I hope that some people get inspired to do this — to build a home haunt that’s self-funded,” Elliot told KTLA Thursday.
Elliot Arnold created an immersive haunted house experience called "The Deathly Attempt" in The Valley. In order to create this elaborate haunted house, Arnold worked odd jobs and saved up his birthday money to make his Halloween dream of a haunted house come to life.
“Our son comes to us and he says, ‘I want to turn our carport into a haunted house.’ And we’re thinking (he’ll) throw up a couple of cobwebs, you know, a little scary figure, sure, go ahead,” said Zach Arnold, Elliot’s father. “The next thing we know, he has 3D schematics where he wants to design this multi-room haunted maze experience and I’m like, ‘this is kind of crazy but sure, go for it!”
