Looking for a good scare? 

Tulip Gulch is bringing the terror again this year with its annual haunted house at Prince George's Stadium in Bowie, opening Friday. 

The longest running, locally produced, all volunteer haunted attraction is in its 27th year, and this is the 12th year the event has been hosted at Prince George's Stadium. Tulip Gulch Production co-owners Mark Torsani and Gary Fischer live locally, and each year, a portion of proceeds go to support local charities.

If you love to be scared, this year's haunted house—themed 'Nightmares'—won't disappoint, according to Bowie Baysox marketing director Brandan Kaiser. 

"This year’s haunted house is going to be as terrifying as ever," said Kaiser in a statement.  

Tulip Gulch's Nightmares Haunted House is rated PG-13 and features more than 30 actors and countless props and special effects. It takes about 20 minutes to get through the haunt.

"This year’s Nightmares theme is sure to keep people jumping around every corner no matter how many times they have been here before. There is no better place in the region to be scared this Halloween season," Kaiser stated.

Gates will open at 6 p.m. on Friday, rain or shine. Although the haunted house takes place indoors and the waiting area is covered, fans are encouraged to dress for the weather, according to Baysox staff. 

Gates will open at 6:30 p.m. and haunted house tours will run from dusk to 11 p.m. every Friday and Saturday in October, with additional tours Oct. 31 through Nov. 2. Tickets are $15 in advance or $17 the day of the show. Tickets can be purchased online here.
