Due to Covid, it’s possible that haunted attractions will have to close with little notice, so please check with the haunted attraction before buying tickets, and before you leave for the attraction. It’s best to call the number for the attraction for updates, or to check their Facebook site. Websites are usually last to be updated. Please remember to take a mask with you. Most attractions will be required to enforce mask wearing, and most will not have masks to provide to customers.

Update: Some haunted attractions will be selling a limited number of tickets, online only, this season, so it’s best to buy your tickets in advance this year. If nothing else, check with the attraction’s site, or Facebook page to find out whether advance tickets are required. In 2020, don’t show up at a haunted house with the expectation of being able to buy tickets at the box office.

Update II: House of Torment is closed for the 2020 season.

Dates and times are for opening night only. Please check with the haunted house’s site for all other dates and times.

Waco Haunted Houses Opens October 9!

Waco Haunted Houses opens Friday, October 9, at 8pm. Plans are for 8pm-midnight, Friday and Saturday. This attraction features two haunted houses, and nice gift shop. Things will be a little different this year, as with all haunted houses, but you can refer to my 2019 review for a full rundown of Waco Haunted Houses. This place has always been one of my favorites, and it’s worth the drive if you live in DFW or Austin. Check their Facebook page for updates.

House of Torment Is Closed for 2020

04.10.2020 (8:30 pm) – Filed under: Haunted House News,Haunted House Opening Dates

House of Torment was to have opened on September 12. They have delayed their opening weekly since then. They just announced cancellation of their 2020 season, and to no one’s surprise, the fault lies with the Austin city government. The full statement is below.

 

We have been working with the City of Austin over the last few weeks and despite submitting multiple plans that exceed Texas’ requirements for safely opening, we have been unable to receive that approval. Unfortunately, at this time, we are sad to say that we will not be opening the House of Torment (as you know it) for the 2020 Halloween Season. We are currently working on an alternative way to celebrate the season and continue the House of Torment tradition, so stay tuned! In the meantime, our sister attraction, 13th Floor Haunted House in San Antonio is open now, we’d love to see you there this season, please keep your eyes open for some great discounts that we will be offering specifically for House of Torment fans that visit San Antonio!

All orders for this season have been issued full refunds. Please allow 3 – 5 business days for refund to reflect on your bank statement.

Scream Hollow and 13th Floor Opening This Weekend

16.09.2020 (10:07 pm) – Filed under: Haunted House News,Haunted House Opening Dates

Scream Hollow, a Halloween park southeast of Austin, and 13th Floor, a large haunted house in San Antonio, are opening September 18.

Scream Hollow is a large haunt park, with four haunted attractions, a bar, a cafe/bakery, and a gift shop. It’s located in Bastrop County, close to the town of Smithville. It’s about 30 minutes southeast of Austin. Directions are here. Tickets are here. This is their Facebook. I have never been to Scream Hollow, but it’s at the top of my list of places to see. It sounds a lot like Screams, which is a great haunt park. Speaking of Screams, since they are closed this year, Scream Hollow is your best bet for a similar experience, so go if you can make the trip. If you live in that part of Texas, definitely go. Scream Hollow is spread out over 20 acres, they have plenty of space for social distancing, and they are taking all Covid precautions. Scream Hollow is open Friday, September 18, and Saturday, September 19, from 7pm-Midnight. They are open Sunday, September 20, from 6pm-10pm.

13th Floor is part of a nationwide group of haunted houses that includes House of Torment in Austin. I haven’t been to 13th Floor, but I have been to it’s sister haunt, House of Torment, which is excellent. 13th Floor has an impressive list of Covid precautions, and they are limiting ticket sales this year, so please buy your tickets in advance. Tickets are here, this is their Facebook, and their list of Covid precautions is here. 13th Floor is open on Friday, September 18, and Saturday, September 19, from 7:30pm-10pm.

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.
