Everyone likes a good scare around Halloween. Well, not everyone, but for those who do, a Haunted House is often a great place to meet your need for scream-inducing thrills. Doing your research is usually a good idea before committing to a specific Haunted House, especially if there are little ones tagging along.  Here you will find a list of some of the most popular Haunted Houses in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area.

Dallas Scare Grounds
2001 Irving Blvd.
Dallas, TX
Sept. 23- Oct. 31
Price: $22

Located near the Design District of downtown Dallas, Dallas Scare Grounds is not just one Haunted House, but it offers three uniquely themed haunted attractions, The Hallucinatorium, The Necrotorium, and The Terrortorium. One admission ticket grants you access to all three attractions. While you wait for your turn into the attractions, you can grab food, enjoy entertainment, and even pick up some swag at their nightly Festival.

Slaughter House
2615 Elm Street
Dallas, TX
Sept. 24-Oct. 31
Price: $18

With over 16,000 sq. feet of terror, the Slaughter House can actually claim being a “Nightmare on Elm Street” as it sits right on Elm Street in Deep Ellum. Because it’s heavy on the bloodshed and gore, Slaughter House is not recommended for children under 10.  And it’s certainly NOT for the weak-hearted of any age.

Zombie Manor
7501 US Highway 287
Arlington, TX
Sept. 17-Oct. 31
Price: $15

If zombies are your thrill of choice, this is the place for you this Halloween. With highly detailed movie quality sets, interactive performers, and special effects, you are sure to embark on a quality dose of scare and terror. Frightened guests gush about their impeccable attention to detail and well-played “themeness” and continue to give Zombie Manor rave reviews year after year. This truly is a zombie experience from the moment you park your car to the moment you leave.

Hangman’s House of Horrors
2300 West Freeway
Fort Worth, TX
Sept. 16-Oct. 31
Price: $20

Hangman’s has been featured on the Travel Channel’s “America’s Scariest Halloween Attractions” and has been named one of the nation’s “Halloween Hot Spots” by Family Circle Magazine. In addition to the classic haunted tour (which is over half an hour long), they also offer three side attractions and several entertainment activities.
