The Only All-Volunteer Major Haunted Attraction in the Cedar Rapids Metro Area, is FrightFind’s Top Haunt in Iowa.

October 18, 2018 – Central City, IA – Circle of Ash Haunted Attraction, located at the Linn County Fairgrounds in Central City, was named the “Top Haunt” in the state of Iowa by the website earlier this month. FrightFind is a directory and news service for the Halloween and Dark Attraction industry. This follows-up a number one state ranking for Circle of Ash in 2017 by Best Things Iowa.


“When others recognize us that is a great feeling, not only for me, but it is a recognition of the hours of work of all of our volunteers, families, and supporters. When you don’t make money doing this, the reward comes from making it better; the reward is the enjoyment of our customers; the reward is in the fright of our fans… But to have others recognize us in this way is a reward as well” Said Chelsea Haugh, a Co-Owner and Producer of Circle of Ash.


Circle of Ash is left as the only all-volunteer haunted attraction in the Cedar Rapids metro area. The owners of the business do not take a profit and the cast and crew are not paid. Instead, all profits are poured back into the business. “We believe it would not be fair to not pay our cast and crew for their incredible work, but instead take a profit ourselves. We are all in this together to make Circle of Ash the best it can be.” Remarked Mark Fuller, another Co-Owner/Producer.


Circle of Ash is operated much like a community theater. The leadership tries to find a spot for all volunteers to match their strengths and assets. “Not everyone can act in a haunted house. Not everyone wants to, either. We try to match each person up to what they want to do, where they may fit, and what best suits their knowledge and abilities.”


Circle of Ash’s Season is ongoing every weekend through October 28th. Fridays and Saturdays they are open from 8pm-Midnight, Sundays October 21st and 28th and Thursday October 25th, they are open from 8-10pm.
