‘Haunted warehouse’ begins at Terror 29

Oct. 10, 2019

The spook is on at Terror 29, a “haunted” warehouse north of Sioux Falls.

The new business, which is the creation of magician Zac Tenneboe, offers haunted tours for Halloween.

Customers wind their way through rooms filled with gruesome “scareactors” or terrorizing clowns, experiencing hair-raising moments and disorienting effects, along with magic and illusions.

“It was awesome,” Tenneboe said of last weekend’s opener. “We surpassed our predictions for numbers.”

While Terror 29 sends groups through in about two-minute increments, wait times got up to 45 minutes to an hour at the peak Saturday night, Tenneboe said. The line is outside, so he encourages people to dress for the weather.

He recommends going through the haunt in a group of four or five people to get the best effect.

Terror 29 has about 20 scareactors and a handful of techs to run the lights and fog machines. One-third of the characters are students in the Roosevelt High School theater department.

“They do an awesome job; they love it,” he said. “Some of them need an Oscar.”

Terror 29 is open on Fridays and Saturdays through Nov. 2 and on two Thursdays – Oct. 24 and Halloween. Nov. 2 is a special “lights out” day. Guests will be given a flashlight, and all of the lights inside the haunt will be turned off.

There’s also a kid’s day on Sunday, Oct. 27, that won’t be as spooky.

Terror 29, which is west of the Renner exit for Interstate 29 at 25753 Cottonwood Ave., opens at 7:30 p.m. on the two Thursday dates and Fridays, and at 7 p.m. Saturdays, with ticket sales ending at 10:30 p.m. Tenneboe recommends showing up “closer to 8 or 9.”

Admission is $15 or $21 for an RIP Super Pass, which allows ticket-holders to skip the main line.

Terror 29 also has a combo ticket discount with Fear Asylum in Brookings, which is ranked as one of the top 50 haunts in the U.S., Tenneboe said.
