Screams Opens This Weekend

Screams® 2019 Opens This Friday, September 27th!

 

Dallas/Fort Worth, TX (September 23, 2019):  Screams® Halloween Theme Park, presented by Metro® by T-Mobile, will open its doors for its 24th season this Friday, September 27, 2019 at 7:30 pm.

Screams®, presented by Metro® by T-Mobile, is 5 Haunted Houses and a whole lot more!  After being transformed over the last several years, Screams® has been further enhanced for the 2019 season to provide the scariest Screams® experience ever! There are 5 haunted houses, each with a different theme along with a haunted graveyard and Strigoi (evil souls) roaming throughout the site – they are sure to find what terrifies you! The haunted houses include:

  • Cursed… the witches of TerraMythica Castle – A terrifying trip in the Medieval Myths surrounding the Magdena Sisters and their evil!
  • PT Harmum’s Carnival of Chaos – Get lost and hopefully not found in this Carnival of Clowns and Freaks
  • Captain Barbarosa’s Blood Harbour – Looting, murder & magic await as you enter a cursed pirate village and encounter the evil that encompasses it!
  • Hotel D’Feers – Frozen in time after a brutal mass murder, meet the ones who STAYED for eternity!
  • Zombie Wasteland… Apocalypse – Fight to the finish: survivors think you’re zombies, Zombies think you’re food… Good Luck!

       “If you’ve never been to Screams® before or it’s been a while since you’ve been back, make sure this is the year you come!” says Coy Sevier, Screams® General Manager. “With the enhancements we’ve made to all 5 of the haunted houses, the spooky haunted graveyard, and the great cast of creepy new characters, the 2019 season of Screams® is sure to be the scariest Screams® ever. You don’t want to miss it!”

Plus, there’s a whole lot more! When you’re ready to take a break from being scared, Screams® has a DJ spinning music on the Screams® stage, Scary-Oke, games of skill, shops, face painting, waxed hands, Henna tattoos, Palm Readers, Psychic readings and more.

Screams® also has a food court and full-service restaurant. For those over 21, there is a full bar and 3 different pubs featuring a great selection of seasonal and craft beers such as ZiegenBock, Spaten Oktoberfest, Bishop Crackberry Cider, Spaten Lager, Belhaven Black Scottish Stout, Bishop Apple Pineapple Cider, Deep Ellum Blind Lemon, White Claw Black Cherry Hard Seltzer, Elysian Night Owl Pumpkin Ale, Bon & Viv Cranberry Spiked Seltzer and Ace Pear Cider along with Bud Light Platinum, Michelob Ultra and Lime & Cherry Jell-O Shots.

Screams® Halloween Theme Park, presented by Metro® by T-Mobile, is the ultimate Halloween experience running every Friday and Saturday night September 27 through October 26, 2019 from 7:30 PM and open late until 1:30 AM.  The single admission price is $35 at the gate and includes all 5 haunted houses, music and Scary-Oke.  $4 off discount coupons are available at North Texas Metro® by T-Mobile stores and discount tickets can be purchased on-line at ScreamsPark.com. Visitors can go through the haunted houses as many times as they like (as the crowds will allow). To cut the wait times in half, you can also purchase a VIP Fast Pass for $20 on-line or at the event. Screams® is designed for ages 16+ and is not recommended for small children. Costumes and masks are NOT allowed at Screams®.

Screams® is located in Waxahachie, just 30 minutes south of the downtowns of Dallas and Fort Worth off I-35E at exit 399A on the Scarborough Faire® site.  Just 60 minutes from Waco.  Due to I-35E construction, the exit for Screams® has temporarily changed to exit 397 on northbound I-35E.  Parking is free compliments of Waxahachie Nissan.  Screams® is presented by Metro® by T-Mobile and is sponsored by Dr Pepper and Waxahachie Nissan.
