Halloween is your favorite holiday, and you love to celebrate all month long!

Treaters took over your house. Now it’s the Eve of Halloween, and you are going to a haunted house on a farm near your house. Something seems puzzling as soon as you and your friends arrive...why is everything so dark? Out of the corner of your eye, you see a figure moving towards you. “Hello humans,” says the ghost. “I am Dr. Bat Dracular, and I have “pulled the plug” on your Halloween fun this year. I’m tired of all of these haunted houses every year. I decided to turn off all of the power so no one can enjoy the frights here. I have locked the key away so that no one can enjoy this haunted house this year. See you next year.” NO HAUNTED HOUSE? It can’t be! You have to find that key to turn the power back on. And you have to hurry before the crowds arrive for the haunted house. Can you save Halloween?!
