Get scared! Behind the scenes of RISE Haunted House

RISE Haunted House is a must visit during the Halloween season. Doors open Saturday, Sept. 28.

Being an entrepreneur and creator at heart, Nevelle Laiche began his haunted house journey when he built a homemade haunted garage for a family birthday party. Years later, he co-owns one of Louisiana’s scariest attractions — RISE Haunted House

What is RISE?

Laiche and his family set out to bring a unique experience to the area. Now, that includes a 10,000 square foot house or “haunt,” a theatrical asylum experience and a haunted hayride. 

This isn’t your average haunted house. As you walk through, you become a part of the story. And seeing the scare actors’ talent will make you feel immediately immersed.  

While the haunt alone is simply beautiful and terrifying, the RISE team changes things up a little bit each season. They find inspiration from pop culture and movies. Plus, the team visits haunted house conventions where they exchange scary ideas with other haunt cultivators. The ideas to frighten you never end. 

Laiche’s family and RISE’s co-owners are hands-on with RISE Haunted House year-round. It’s a grand production of set building and script writing. 

Surprisingly, being around all of the spookiness doesn’t haunt Laiche’s dreams regularly. Actually, he really enjoys it. 

“We love to entertain and put smiles on people’s faces,” said Laiche. 

But, smiling isn’t the only expression people walk out with. Laiche mentioned he loves when he sees people crying, screaming and laughing. Now, that’s quite the mix of emotions! 

I guess, you’ll just have to go through to see what RISE does to you.

Who can visit?

Overall, RISE is family-friendly.

All ages are welcome, but Laiche recommends younger kids stay out of the Risewell Asylum attraction. The actors get very close, which may be uncomfortable for some visitors.

Otherwise, the Haunted Hayride and Haunted House are suitable for all ages. 

Tickets start at $20 per attraction. If you’re interested in visiting multiple attractions during a visit, combo pricing is also available. Learn more HERE
