Get Halloween thrills and support recycling efforts in your community when you visit Slash Moraine, a haunted attraction operated by the City of Moraine at the former Splash Moraine Waterpark. Slash Moraine is constructed using approximately $9,000 worth of recycled and reused materials, donated by local businesses and individuals through the Montgomery County Material Reuse Facility (McMRF).
“Reuse is a key theme in our construction at Slash Moraine,” says Director Dave Miller of the City of Moraine Parks and Recreation. “Because of McMRF, we do not have to purchase costly new building supplies every year, so we are able to keep this attraction reasonably priced for the community.”
Slash Moraine reuses building supplies, paint, and props, such as medical gurneys, large shipping crates, and light boxes – all supplied by McMRF. McMRF collects and warehouses unwanted, yet reusable, materials from individuals and businesses, which are then redistributed to local nonprofit organizations.
Slash Moraine has been a signature local Halloween attraction for five years, and is designed entirely by volunteers. Nightly, more than 50 volunteers perform at the attraction.
Slash Moraine will be open from 8 p.m. to 12:30 a.m. every Friday and Saturday through the end of October. Admission for the attraction is $7. For more information, contact Recreation Superintendent Julie Hoffman at (937) 535-1095.
