The attraction is located at the old Wyandotte City Hall on Biddle Avenue where the Wyandotte Jaycees transformed the building into a 10,500 square foot 18 room indoor haunted house. According to Allan Joseph, Marketing Manager of Bloodbath on Biddle “Dacy Rehding is a local legend where she was orphaned and was wandering the streets of Wyandotte looking for someone to play with. No one wanted to, so she murdered them to steal their souls and create her own play land.” With the help of a local witch, the Wyandotte Jaycees were able to contain Dacy and her captured souls for a limited amount of time.
The Wyandotte Jaycees have been putting on this fundraiser for 37 years and from the looks of it, it could be even longer. Jon Dehring comments, “With the support of the City of Wyandotte, local businesses, and surrounding parties, this event really brings the community together.” With over an estimated 20,000 man hours to put this project on, it is a truly a passion as the Jaycees rebuild their creation every year.
The Wyandotte Jaycees work with the City of Wyandotte every year for a location that is being slated for demolition. The Jaycees then develop floor plans and safety plans to present to the appropriate city officials. Once approved, they begin their construction. This typically takes about 30-40 days to complete. This years creation is beyond exceptional and the level of detail is the level of a professional grade haunt that has been in business for the same amount of time.
