Erebus Haunted Attraction and their Anti-Bullying Campaign

“I love scaring people, I love to create fear, but only here at Erebus. This is where the fear should stay — in a fun, controlled, safe environment. It’s when the fear happens outside that it becomes a real problem. When I was younger, I was a victim of bullying — other kids would say hurtful things and make fun, and I’ll never forget that because it causes so much hurt. No kid should have to be subjected to that and it’s an issue that needs to be seriously addressed,” said Ed.
