Students build "paranormal experience" for senior trip fundraiser

CORBIN, Ky. (WKYT) - Teachers and students at Lynn Camp High School have transformed the back wing of the Mountain View Lodge into a haunted house.

“We’re going to come at you from all your senses: sight, smell, sound and touch,” said teacher Scott Prewitt.

Students are putting on the “School of Fear” in hopes of raising enough money for the seniors to take a trip next spring.

“We spend 6 days in Washington, DC and New York,” said Prewitt.

Students have spent weeks working in 30 rooms of the two story building.

“But it’s more of a trauma look. It looks like the 'teacher' has taken the students and beat them up and tortured them,” teacher Earl Gregory said of the theme of the haunted house.

Those behind the haunted house say that they feel like they have the perfect location for the event. They say the Mountain View Lodge has a unique history, including some events that cannot be explained.

That’s why “Flatline Paranormal” is involved.

“There have been purported hauntings here. We came up here with our equipment and have video and audio proof,” said Nick Gray of Flatline Paranormal.

Adding more to the experience, in hopes of giving all a good scare and some students a way to pay for an experience of a lifetime.

The haunted house opens Friday night at 7:30 and will be open every Friday and Saturday night in October. Admission is $10 per person. Moutain View Lodge is located just off I-75 Exit #25 in Corbin.
