The state fire marshal and other officials are set to inspect 13 Stories Haunted House, featuring Horror Hill, today to determine if the haunted house will be able to open for the 2013 season.

The haunted attraction is in the former Playtex plant at 320 Temple Ave., located just west of Newnan.

13 Stories owner and Horror Hill creator Allyn Glover said he is "cautiously optimistic" that they will pass inspection and be able to open tonight.

Glover moved Horror Hill, the haunted trail he started as a middle-schooler, and 13 Stories, formerly located in Kennesaw, to the former Playtex plant after Coweta County officials indicated they wouldn't grant a permit to allow Horror Hill to continue in its original location on Ware Road.

It took Glover a while to find the right location for the business, and then it took more time than anticipated to get the building ready.

"We have been working day and night to get everything ready," Glover said on Thursday. The inspections are set for 10:30 a.m. today.

Glover previously said that, if he were unable to open this weekend, the attraction wouldn't open at all this year, and they would focus on having a full season in 2014.

If approved, the attraction will be open Oct. 25-27, Oct. 30 through Nov. 3, Nov. 8 and 9 and Nov. 15 and 16, beginning at dark, with varied closing hours. For updates on what happens during today’s inspection, go to The Newnan Times-Herald’s website at times-herald.com
