Monsterland in Mesa Arizona

Monsterland, the haunted house attraction and horror movie museum that’s part of downtown Mesa’s funky little renaissance, has had to delay its grand opening reportedly due to construction blocking the parking lot out back.

Jackalope Ranch, the Phoenix New Times culture blog, talked to the co-owner and reports Monsterland will open Oct. 7 instead of Sept. 23.

Despite the delay, auditions for Monsterland cast members will take place 5 p.m. Sept. 3 and 10, on-site at 18 W. Main St.

I recently read in the Phoenix Business Journal that another macabre venue, 13th Floor Phoenix, is opening Sept. 23 at 2814 W. Bell Road in Phoenix with a Zombieland attraction next door.

Spooky!
