HOUSTON, Texas - The best way to celebrate Halloween is by getting scared out of your skin at a haunted house! We asked ABC13 for their favorite haunted houses around town and put together the top 10 list.
Creepy Hollow Haunted House
When we asked for your favorites, Creepy Hollow was the overwhelming favorite, hands down. They have been voted the scariest haunted house in Texas, and their website says that even some adults don't make it all the way through. Tickets are $30 for all attractions, and $10 Speed Passes are sold at the box office and take you to the front of the line with no waiting. An ABC13 viewer said, "You really felt like you got your money's worth." Creepy Hollow is open Thursdays through Sundays. They're located on 288 in Rosharon.
You may have seen Fearshire Farms on the Travel Channel's Halloween's Craziest. Their attractions are a little different because the house is a real haunted house and the corn is a real corn field. Built in the early 1900s the farm house has many rooms, and the grounds are just as the family left them from the front porch to the family cemetery. Active Military, Police, Fire and EMS all receive free admission!
Houston Scream Fest
Houston Scream Fest isn't just a haunted house, it's a haunted festival. They have 10 attractions, including live concerts from different bands each night on stage. They show horror movies on a big screen, have a dance floor with a DJ, and even have a Zombie Paintball Shoot. Police, Fireman and Active Duty Military get into the festival for free. Otherwise general admission is $40 per person and a weekend park pass is $50. Scream Fest is located off the Gulf Freeway near Hobby Airport.
Scream World has five attractions that are all included in one ticket. General admission is $32 cash only at the door, but you can save a couple bucks by purchasing online before you go. A fast pass will cost $42 at the door. There are discount nights where tickets are $22 and $32 for fast passes.
Houston Terror Dome
The owners of Houston Terror Dome suggest bringing an extra pair of underwear. Tickets are $20, VIP fast passes are $30 and for an extra $10 you can enter their paintball gallery and fight your fears. Military and first responders get $5 off up to two regular tickets with their ID.
