Missouri S&T prepares to open Haunted Mine, an annual tradition since 1997


ROLLA, Missouri — Engineering students at Missouri University of Science and Technology will begin haunting visitors to their underground lair next week.

Students have been spooking Halloween-season visitors to the school's Experimental Mine since 1997. The site near the Rolla campus includes an underground mine, quarry, classrooms and labs.

The Haunted Mine opens Oct. 17. Tickets cost $10 for those 11 and older and $8 for younger children, S&T students, veterans and active military. There's a $2 discount for a donation of two canned goods.

Proceeds benefit mining engineering activities and student organizations.
