A group of mining engineering students at Missouri S&T have created things that go bump – and scream – in the night for this year’s Haunted Mine, which opens Friday, Oct. 21, at Missouri S&T’s Experimental Mine.
The tradition of haunting the mine began in 1997 as a way for Missouri S&T students in mining and explosives engineering to raise funds to participate in competitions and attend conferences throughout the year.
The 2022 Haunted Mine will be open 6-11 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 21; Saturday, Oct. 22; Friday, Oct. 28; Saturday, Oct. 29; and Monday, Oct. 31. Tickets are $15 for adults and $13 for children under 10, Missouri S&T students and members of the military with valid IDs. Guests can get a discount of up to $3 per person by bringing canned goods to donate to Russell House ($1 per item).
On any open night before Halloween, groups with small children can walk through the mine with the lights on from 5-6 p.m. for $5 per child.
The Experimental Mine is located at 12350 Private Drive 7002 in Rolla, just off Bridge School Road.For more information, contact Donna Arthur, office support assistant in mining engineering, at firstname.lastname@example.org, or Missouri S&T mining engineering students Evan McCorkle at email@example.com or Chase Acton at firstname.lastname@example.org.
