A haunted house that makes grown-ups cry.

“There’s a full group that fell on the floor,” said Elias Jones, haunted house worker and high school student.

The old Pioneer Furniture building doubles as a haunted house thanks to Elias Jones and his friends and family.

But when guests pay to get scared, they are also helping St. Jude’s Children's Research Hospital.

“You’re just helping us give money so we can help other kids have more days,” said Jones.

Jones’ grandmother came up with donating the money last year.

“Instead of giving it to herself, she wanted to send it to St. Jude’s,” said Jones.

The haunted house has been a hit this year.

“People are going to school and ask who this haunted house is. I say yea we’re doing it. We’re the ones running it. It’s pretty cool,” said Jones.

So cool, we had our cameras take a quick peak.

Halloween is a time where it’s cool to be scary. Jones, his family and friends show it’s also cool to think of others too.

The haunted house will be open on Halloween from 7 p.m. -11 p.m. It’s located on 800 South Grant Ave. in Odessa. It’s $8 to get scared.
