D&D Ranch Haunted Hike, located at 2532 S. Shore Drive near Clear Lake State Park, is ready to scare. Hours are 7-11 p.m. Friday and Saturdays in October, and 7-10 p.m. Halloween. 

Favorites like Dracula, Frankenstein, and the Wolfman are in the museum, with scary movies showing on a large projection screen.

Dale and Debbie Anderson have added a new building for the swamp and witch rooms, plus new props and an expanded haunted trail.

The Zombie Paintball Bus offers people the chance to shoot paintball guns at the ranch's 50 zombies. And the hike offers a two-level Hewitt Escape Room, open by reservation Thursdays in October.

Cost is $12 for the haunt, $10 for the zombie bus, and $15 for the escape room, with a portion going to local charities. For information or reservations, call 641-357-1695, or visit www.thedadranch.com
