Student-run Haunted Attraction Open Halloween Night

Monday, October 28th, 2013

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — If you're looking for a scare, the New Hanover High School Lyceum Haunted House is the place to be Thursday night.

It is completely run by students from start to finish, making it a unique experience for all involved. Students began building their sets for the spooky adventure in early October and you have one more chance to see it.

The money raised by attendees helps Lyceum Academy students take educational trips throughout the school year.

Two student volunteers visited Good Morning Carolina to talk about the haunted attraction that says even leaves them scared. After watching the interview, get even more details right here.

Worker hurt while dismantling other version of Vortex ride at State Fair

Monday, October 28th, 2013

RALEIGH, NC (AP) — A worker dismantling a ride at the North Carolina State Fair has been hurt.

Agriculture Department spokesman Brian Long says the man was injured when a piece of a ride called The Vortex fell on him around 3:30 a.m. Monday.

The ride is not the same version of The Vortex where five people were hurt last week.

The fair ended Sunday night.

Officials say the 35-year-old man suffered a leg injury. His name has not been released and there was no word on his condition. He was taken to WakeMed Hospital in Raleigh.

Long said the Wake County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the incident.

A ride operator on the other version of The Vortex is scheduled to be in court Monday to face criminal charges after last week’s injuries.
