Human Roast House
Located on the corner of

Dates: Opens October 5, 2017 until October 31, 2017

Located in Downtown Riverside, when you enter the Human Roast House, you’re not just entering your average haunted house. In fact, you’re entering the home of Austin Reed Trebbe, a famed serial killer of Riverside. Be terrified as you wander his home and see how sick and twisted he was. You see the clowns that feed his delusions. This is not for the faint at heart as you can probably guess. Older children are welcome if they are brave enough, but parents must judge for themselves. The event runs from 7pm to 10pm on Thursdays and Sundays, and 7pm to 11pm on Friday and Saturdays. On Halloween night, though, the event will be open from 7pm to 10pm.
