ADELANTO, Ca. – A father and son team joined together to share their love of Halloween with their community, first with Fear Farm and now with Monster Stadium at Adelanto Stadium.
Rick and Rix Boker started Fear Farm over 10 years ago, first at the family ranch in Phelan, then at the Phelan Fun Days. Rix Boker says that they are hoping that Monster Stadium, which is held at Monster Stadium will be their new home for years to come. Rix said that since he was only 6-years-old he had a passion for Halloween and haunts. “My dad helped me put together our first ‘scary scene’ when I was younger, and it’s just grown since then,” said Rix.
Now 28-years-old, Rix said the move came only after outgrowing the previous location. He also hoped that being closer to town would allow them to share the passion with more people.
“The stadium is a really scary place when the lights are off after dark!,” he added. “Teaming up with the City of Adelanto and the stadium guys seemed like a great opportunity to help us grow.” Family friends and volunteers make up the monsters, most of them also having the same Halloween haunt passion Rix has.
Rix said that they have 30-50 terrifying monsters depending on the night. When asked about children attending he mentioned Monster Repellent, which is a glow stick, which is available for younger children or those not so into being scared. “When our actors and volunteers see someone with a glow stick around their neck, they take it easy on those individuals.” Opening day was on October 11th, and all of the weekends after, then on Friday, October 25th it is open every night through Halloween night. “The city is also sponsoring a trunk or treat at the stadium Oct 26 in conjunction with our haunted house.”
Tickets are available for purchase online or at the Adelanto Stadium box office during each event.
