Ford Plans To Turn Michigan Central Station Into A Haunted House
When Ford bought the abandoned Michigan Central Station in Detroit, nobody would've guessed that it would turn into a haunted house.
That's exactly what's happening though, according to Crain's Detroit.
I've always thought that the best haunted houses are the ones that might actually be haunted. Considering Central Station has been vacant for quite a while, and just looks creepy as hell, I think there's probably a good chance.
The plan is to have the haunted house on the first floor of the vacant train station, but only for one day. If you are already starting to plan your trip down, slow down a bit, there's a good chance you might not even get in.
The plan right now is to have the haunted house for one day on either the Saturday before Halloween or on Halloween night. It will be free of charge, but residents living in the impact area will get preferential treatment. The impact area as described by Crain's is
I-75 and 21st Street to the west, West Lafayette Boulevard to the south, the Lodge Freeway (M-10) to the east, with a jog up Grand River Avenue to the northwest and Martin Luther King Junior Boulevard to the north.
I think the haunted house is going to be insanely busy no matter what night they choose to host it. The fact that it will be free will only make the crowds bigger. If you're brave enough to face the potential wait in line, then you definitely have what it takes to face whatever will be inside.
