The Dent Schoolhouse's homicidal Charlie the Janitor is turning into Mr. Clean this Halloween season.

Kicking off Sept. 25, the West Side haunted house welcomes guests to visit their "scary, safe, and fun experience," which continues with general admission tickets and special nights like lights-on for kids, lights-off for extra thrill seekers, and construction and ghost tours through Friday, Nov. 13.

The attraction has implemented a COVID-19 safety plan for this year's fall event with guidelines like mandatory masks, reduced attendance, social distancing, hand sanitizing stations and enhanced cleaning. 

"While this will change some experience expectations, we aim to continue to provide fun and fright. We want to supply a world class show that customers and staff have come to expect from The Dent Schoolhouse, while still complying with local, state, and government guidelines," the website reads.

Tickets are on sale now and range in price from $20-$25. Guests have the option to purchase an additional $20 "fast pass" or a $30 "front of the line" ticket.

The Dent School House, 5963 Harrison Ave., Dent.
