according to the informative graphic on our homepage. And only 10 days until the Rebel Yell opens! All of the walls are assembled and the haunt is starting to take shape. We'll be posting more construction videos on our YouTube channel shortly and are working hard to make this the best 'Yell yet. Stay Tuned!


10/10/12

The Rebel Yell is WET.
Very very wet. And not because of the usual torrents of blood that ravage the house from time to time, but due to a sudden Florida style cloudburst last night. Fortunately our electronics are not out yet so the damage is limited to some soggy carpets and damp walls. Which is fine. A little "must" just adds to the character. Dampness aside, we are on track for our opening on Saturday Oct. 27th, so be sure to come check it out!


10/1/12

HAPPY OCTOBER!
We are well underway with the construction of the 2012 Rebel Yell. Check out our facebook page for some photos. We also just posted our operating hours for this year on the Details page, though they are still subject to expansion. Check back soon and often for the latest info!


4/23/12

Planning for the 2012 Rebel Yell is underway! We will be adding a new room to the haunt for the first time since 2007, and have lots of exciting new effects and scares planned. Stay tuned for more details!

Thanks for making our 10th season the best one yet!

Yes, it was our 10th season although we have been at this for 12 years now. (There was no Rebel Yell in 2008 or 2010.) I realized while working on this year's haunt that kids who were 10 years old when we held the first Rebel Yell are 22 now. Crazy. It's been a great ride, and we are nowhere near the end!

Photos and video from this year's haunt will be posted soon, and we are already planning for the 2012 Rebel Yell so stay tuned!


11/1/11

Had a great Halloween, despite not building the Rebel Yell this year. Perhaps this video will tide you over until we return next year!


9/15/10

Ahhhh, Fall. The Spirit Halloween Store billboards, cool weather and the new Disturbed album playing on my iTunes make me feel like I should be building scary things in the driveway. Unfortunately, Rebel Yell does not have a home this year so we will be on hiatus until the 2011 season. We are working hard securing a location for next year and hope to scare you all again soon. Check back for updates, and have a great Halloween!


11/4/09

"Better than Disneyland!"

"Better than Great America!"

"Incredible."

"The best haunted house I have ever seen!"

"By far your best effort yet."

These are just a few of the comments from visitors to the 2009 Rebel Yell Haunted House. We truly believe it was our best season yet. Huge thanks to Paul, Mike, Adana, Tom, Justin, Brian and the rest of the Rebel Yell Crew, as well to all of our fans, friends and neighbors who came out to see us this year. We look forward to scaring you all again next Halloween.


10/30/09

Happy Halloween everyone! We just finished our first haunting night of the season and it was great fun. Our haunt is better than ever and we got excellent reviews from the nearly 100 attendees who stopped by for our preview night. We're looking forward to the big night tomorrow. Hope to see you there!


9/9/09

THE REBEL YELL IS BACK! For 2009 we will be returning to our roots as one of America's Scariest Home Haunts with an updated version of our original haunt on Rebel Way. We have a new location, one block up the street. Check the Details page for more info. We are also hard at work on bigger, better pro-haunt for 2010 so check back after Halloween for more info on that.


1/25/08

The series is available at FEARnet.com and the episode featuring the Rebel Yell was posted yesterday. Check it out here. While you're there, check out FEARnet's other original programming, horror reviews and message boards.

We are hard at work on our new effects and renovations for the 7th annual Rebel Yell. And since this may be our last year at our home on Rebel Way (more on that later), we are going to make sure it is our best... haunt... EVER. In the meantime, we highly recommend checking out Callson Manor in San Jose and Pirates Of Emerson in Fremont. And for a list of other home and pro haunts in Northern California check out CalHaunts.com


8/28/06

Lots of news. I haven't updated the site in a while so here goes: Todd has been working on some hands for Otis, the pop-up zombie in the cemetery. They have a steel skeleton with cotton and latex forming the skin. Very cool. Check them out. We have finished the box for the air compressor, painted the furniture for the new frozen bedroom and Ernie has been welding the frame for the new pop-up for the bed. Still a lot of projects to finish before we start to build the haunt in October but things are looking good. Our next build meeting is Saturday, September 9th. Following that we will meet every weekend in October. This year's haunt is going to be our best by far, don't miss it!


3/19/06

We have completed our second planning meeting for the 06 Rebel Yell. Our accomplishments included naming our characters, starting construction of a sound proof box for the air compressor, and bronzing the Corpseapult. The Corpseapult was our first mechanical prop. Something I made out of screen door closers, hinged wood and a gate latch circa 1996. It has found it's way into almost every Rebel Yell since then, but is now officially retired.


2/12/06

Happy new year! (OK a bit late, but this is my first post of 2006) Our first planning meeting for the 7th annual Rebel Yell took place yesterday. We will be adding some exciting new props and effects and remodeling the bedroom this year. We also have a talented comic artist working on a new logo for us. Stay tuned for more details! The photo page has been updated, and some new pics posted from 2005 - Click here! We also have a new draft of the Rebel Yell Story - Read it here.


11/8/05

The 2005 Rebel Yell is all packed up. Attendance was down a bit from last year, probably due to the Monday night, but we collected about 30% more in donations. I think this indicates that more of our victims are coming specifically to see the haunt and bringing their wallets. Which is a good thing. Anyway we had a great time as always. We're already working on the 7th annual Rebel Yell for 2006. More info coming soon

Article from Wave magazineRED BULL - The Red Bull truck came by tonight and gave all the Rebel Yell crew free Red Bull just before we opened. Cool! Just the little boost we needed to crank up the scares! The Red Bull folks said they read about us in The Wave magazine. I didn't know the Wave had listed us but I looked it up later, see pic at right ->
