Haunted Hydro celebrates 30 years of screams


Crazy Bob and Beth Turner, owners of they Haunted Hydro, work endlessly to give their haunted house goers the best experience possible. Each year, the themes and decorations change so fright seekers are always guaranteed a new heart-pounding trip through the Hydro, haunted woods or escape room.

Throughout the scaring season, the Turners employ roughly 80 “monsters.” Each actor goes through a three-day training to make sure their scare tactics are on point. The monsters aren’t just actors to the Turners, they are all family. After a long night of scaring, the Turners host after-parties for the monsters. During the off-season, the Hydro hosts a variety of events including dark photo shoots with photographers and models from across Ohio and the surrounding states, a Monster Make-Off competition, Red Cross blood drives and more.

Rachel Wynkoop, Interim Director of the Chamber of Commerce of Sandusky County, along with Sandusky County Commissioner Scott Miller and Bob Gross, executive Assistant to the Mayor of Fremont, helped the Turners and their Monster Family celebrate 30 years of business with a ribbon cutting on Friday, Sept. 27.

“I cannot thank you enough for everything you have done at the Hydro and for the county for the last 30 years,” Wynkoop said during the ceremony.
