Haunted Houses make for a Spooky Halloween Season

The season for jack-o-lanterns, ghosts and ghouls, witches and spells, and lots and lots of candy, has arrived. Some celebrate halloween by taking the little ones trick-or-treating and some set the candy bowl out on the porch and lock the door. However, a select few have a desire for the particular bone-chilling terror you can only experience at a haunted house.

Establishments like Moxley Manor, Cutting Edge, and Hangman’s House of Horrors have been giving people the heebie jeebies for years.

“I actually peed in my pants I was so scared.” Wren T, commenter on Yelp about her experience at Moxley Manor said. (https://www.yelp.com/biz/moxley-manor-haunted-house-bedford)

You won’t have to slaughter your wallet as general admission prices range from between $25 and $40, (not always including parking) and there are even some petrifyingly good deals if you’re willing to spend a little extra to get a little extra fright.

These haunted houses typically take between 40 minutes to an hour to complete, assuming you make it out.

Cutting Edge Haunted House in Fort Worth is a Guinness World Record holder for the world’s largest haunted attraction and the world’s longest walk-through haunted attraction.

Be aware that if you are sensitive to strobe lights, loud and abrupt audio, and/or physically demanding environment, or is you suffer from any medical conditions such as seizures, heart problems, or mental/psychological problems, haunted houses are not for you, as they include all of these effects.

Haunted houses typically pack up at the beginning of November, so make sure to get your scares before it’s too late.
