NORTH TONAWANDA, N.Y. (WKBW) — A North Tonawanda haunted house will return for its third year and benefit Ten Lives Club and Oishei Children’s Hospital.

Kyle and Alisha King, the owners of WNY Property Kings, will host the haunted house at 870 Lee Avenue in North Tonawanda beginning Friday.

The haunt started in 2019 and continued on in 2020.

"I'm dressed up as a nurse. I'm going to be in a bed going crazy. I'm in the hospital theme," Rylee Deluca told 7ABC.

Niagara Nightmares returns for the third consecutive year with a these and a few extra details.

"This year, we made it bigger. We made it more detailed. We've got a lot of different stuff going on in the haunt. We're donating to two, actually three charities this year. It's like an abandoned psycho house," co-owner Alisha King said. "We have a hospital scene. There's a freezer scene. A dungeon area. "

Th home, located on 870 Lee Avenue, in North Tonawanda, will be serving scare victims a gruesome, goblin-filled experience for the next five weekends.

"I can't wait for it to come back because I love scaring people," Deluca said.

While their job is to scare, the family had quite a bit of the scare of their own that set them about a week back on haunted house preparations.

“Our newborn daughter was admitted to Oishei Children's Hospital with RSV. She was on oxygen and fluids for days on end and we were so scared as she struggled to breath. The doctors, nurses and staff were so good to our daughter and us and made us feel at ease during a very scary time. We are happy to share that our daughter is doing much better now. Because of how amazing they were to us, the 870 Lee Home Haunt will be raising funds for Children’s Hospital as well as Ten Lives Club,” said Kyle King.

Come this time next year, the King said she and her husband plan to expand the haunted home.

"We bought land out in Sanborn-Wheatfield area and we're going to go more legit next year. We're just moving locations and we're still going to be going on and donating," King said.
