Halloween Merchandise and Costume Links

04.05.2024 (12:21 am) – Filed under: Halloween Merchandise and Costumes

Here is an updated list of stores that sell quality Halloween merchandise and costumes. These links should take you directly to their Halloween departments. Walgreens, Kroger, Tom Thumb, Albertsons, and CVS usually sell a fair amount of Halloween decorations and candy, but they list little to nothing online, so I’m not linking to them. They are worth checking out in person, especially CVS. Many of the costume shops listed also carry decorations.

Paranormal Places and Ghost Tours in Texas

04.05.2024 (12:20 am) – Filed under: Paranormal

Since it’s looking like at least some haunted attractions in Texas will join Screams in cancelling, we are going to post alternatives to haunted houses this season. Without commenting on whether paranormal activity is real, I will say that investigating paranormal sites can be fun, even if you aren’t a believer. After all, we all know that haunted houses aren’t full of real monsters, but they are great fun anyway. Below are some links to paranormal sites and ghost tours.

04.05.2024 (12:16 am) – Filed under: Haunted House News

This is a list of haunted houses from years past. Of course, nearly every haunted houses that opened before 1996 is closed now, so this is a list of personal favorites that have closed.

Tayman Graveyard, built on the same grounds that Tayman Manor occupied, has closed. 2021 was it’s final season. It had a good, long run, from 2005-2021. Tayman Graveyard had a great location and multiple attractions. I fondly remember the creepy walk from the old parking lot to the haunt, and the great decor inside the park.

Dallas Scaregrounds  A great haunted house that started out as Dr Blood’s and developed into a haunted festival, in the Dallas Design District. It was very popular, but fell victim to the redevelopment of the Design District. This was one of the first extra large haunted houses in DFW.

Fatal End/Dollhouse  Another popular haunted house that was ended by redevelopment in the downtown Dallas area. Fatal End opened in the late 2000’s. It had a great location in the West End, and had great props. Necroplex merged with Fatal End in 2011 and the name changed to The Dollhouse.

Dallas Slaughterhouse  This haunt started in the West End in Dallas in the mid 2000’s and eventually moved to Deep Ellum, before merging with J&F in Garland in 2016.

Dungeon of Doom  The original DoD, in the basement of the Arlington Museum of Art, was formed as a way to raise money for the museum. It probably had the best decor of any haunted house I’ve been to, with the possible exception of Verdun Manor. Kay, and her husband Milton, ran the place. With so many multi haunt attractions opening in the 2000’s, Kay felt that DoD could no longer compete and closed down after the 2007 season. Many of the props went to the new Dungeon of Doom in the Reindeer Manor/13 Street Morgue complex.

Necroplex started in Italy, south of Waxahachie, in 2008, and merged with Fatal End in 2011. Necroplex had great Old West style Gothic props and decor.

Tayman Manor  One of the most intense haunted houses of the 90’s and early 2000’s was Tayman Manor in Midlothian. Actors made some contact, the place looked great, and had a creepy setting. Tayman Manor was destroyed in a fire, along with most of Addamsville, but Tayman Graveyard lives on to this day.

Addamsville was a haunt park, next to Tayman Manor. It was only open for 2002 and 2003, but it was fun while it lasted. Addamsville had a coupon system, similar to the State Fair. It had a trail, a clown house, a mortuary, a haunted museum, and a standard haunted house. Concessions and a gift shop were at one end of the park. Stilt walkers roamed through the night. It had a great festival atmosphere. Sadly, most of Addamsville was destroyed in the fire that took out Tayman Manor. The mortuary and concessions stand are still around at Tayman Graveyard.

Dr Haunt’s Chamber of Fear  Located in Gainesville, Dr Haunts was a throwback to ’80’s side of the road haunted houses. The quality varied year to year, but a unique layout and enthusiastic college volunteers made the trip worthwhile through the 2000’s.

Terrorplex was a small haunt park located in the outskirts of the Mansfield area, south of Arlington. It had four to five small haunted houses at a time. Mead Manor was the best of the haunts.

Lafitte’s Landing was a pirate themed haunted house that opened in the mid 2000’s, and reopened for one more year in Allen.

Phantom’s Haunted House  This was the haunt that would not die. Originally located in Lewisville, on the west side of the 1-35 access road, Phantoms had to move to Frisco after it’s property was bought by a car dealership. After one season in Frisco (I think that was 2003) Phantoms moved to the State Fair for three seasons, before moving back to Frisco, or Plano, at an Old West attraction in 2010. Phantom’s final location was in Allen, off of 75, where the outdoor mall is today. The Lewisville location had the best haunted house, but the Allen location had the best hayride I’ve been on. It wound through a densely forested area, with tree branches close enough to touch at times.

Faustas Sanitarium was located in Cleburne in the Wright Plaza building, which shows up on lots of paranormal sites as a haunted location. Faustas was upstairs, and was fairly small, but was extremely well decorated due to being designed by Lance Pope’s company, Wolf Productions. Wright Plaza was closed at night, aside from Faustas, and in those days downtown Cleburne was deserted at night, so the entire area had an eerie feel to it. Faustas was open in the 90’s and closed down around 2003.

Haunt House  Located in Caddo Mills, off of the I-30 access road, Haunt House was a small, but creative place. This was the first haunt in the area to use shock pads on walls.

Ripley’s Haunted House  Ripley’s in Grand Prairie had a very good haunted house in the wax figure section of it’s building in the 2000’s. I went for the first time in 2004, and it closed a few years later. The wax figures of horror movie monsters and liberal use of fog machines were the best parts of the haunt.

Strangling Brothers Haunted Circus  This still exists in Utah, but the DFW version was around for three seasons, beginning in 2013. The circus was a collection of 18 wheeler trailers, each with it’s own scene and actors, plus some props and actors between the trailers. It moved each year, from two locations in Irving, to Grand Prairie, before closing shop in Texas. It was a unique approach to haunting, but was probably too expensive for the market.

Swizzle Tiki Bar

21.10.2023 (9:31 am) – Filed under: Other Halloween Activities

Swizzle Tiki Bar in Lowest Greenville is celebrating Halloween all month long with crafted Halloween drinks, Halloween decorations covering the entire place, and horror movies playing on a TV over the bar. Owners Joseph and Jen clearly love this holiday and Swizzle has Halloween spirit to spare.

Attention to detail is seen in both the drinks and the food. All of the specialty drinks are Instagram worthy, and they have a pretty extensive food menu, specializing in Polynesian dishes. I tried the Q.B Cooler, plus Halloween drinks All Tunnel, No Light, Eye of the Spider, and Harlequin. The O.B. Cooler is strong enough to be limited to 2 per person, and yet it is tasty. All Tunnel, No Light, Harlequin, and Eye of the Spider have a pleasant smoky aftertaste. All of the drinks were strong, so you get your money’s worth. The drinks menu has a convenient rating system that gives you an idea of how strong each drink is. Visual presentation of the drinks is great. My server Nicole did a great job of helping me pick drinks from the Halloween menu. On my next stop I will try Strangers Blood and Ghost of XMAS Past.

I was lucky to arrive just before the kitchen closed for the night. Loco Moco, a beef dish in brown gravy with an egg on top, went well with my drinks. The adventurous menu is pretty unique in Dallas, and has a couple of dishes that feature Spam. Pupu platters, handheld food, various rice bowls, curry, and stir fry are among the offerings. Desserts are Dole Whip, fried sweet, sugary Hawaiian rolls, and a banana filled lumpia.

Swizzle has several areas to choose from for seating. A nicely decorated patio outside the front entrance is ideal for cooler nights. Two alcoves in the back of Swizzle offer privacy. The bar itself is beautifully decorated and yet cozy. There are several larger tables available in middle of Swizzle.

Beachcomber Happy Hour is Monday-Friday from 4-6. Cocktail specials are $5, wells are $3, and beer is $1 off. There are also discounts on select menu items. Additionally, Monday is $5 Mai Tai Monday, and Tuesday is Tiki Tuesday with $5 frozen drinks and Dole Whips.

I was generously given the opportunity to attend the first paranormal investigation of Swizzle. The event began at midnight, and was hosted by Claudelia Zarate, with her friends Samantha and Oscar. This was a an interesting investigation, and it appears that Swizzle has at least one friendly ghost named Charles, and possibly three others. Charles was speaking to Samantha for several minutes while she was on the ground wearing a blindfold. All in all, Claudelia and Company did a great job. They were very professional, informative, and entertaining. The spirits at Swizzle are good natured, so you can relax and enjoy your October nights at Swizzle, with the possibility of a paranormal surprise.

A Boolesque show is coming up at Swizzle on October 26. Tickets are here and the show begins at 7.

I highly recommend Swizzle! Great food and drinks, and it’s easily the best Halloween experience I’ve had this season.


Check out the pics below information. Keep in mind that I took these close to closing time, and just before the paranormal investigation began.

Final Weekend for Screams

15.10.2023 (4:58 pm) – Filed under: Screams

The final weekend of the season is approaching, so be sure to check out Screams Halloween Theme Park! Screams is truly a must see haunted attraction, and has something to appeal to everyone. The haunted houses at Screams are great, but if you are one of those people who becomes too frightened at haunted houses, you can eat, drink, and shop all night at Screams, while you take in the great Halloween atmosphere. Screams has a perfect 10 score from Texas Haunts.

Screams has five haunted attractions, two walk through attractions, a large food court, six pubs and taverns, plus 13th Hour Bakery! A wonderful acrobatic/aerialist group called Hell Dolls performs on the Screams main stage. A wide variety of Halloween themed merchants can be found around the park this season. There are also games of skill close to the food court.

Remember that Screams is open on Fridays and Saturdays only, from 7pm-1am.
