Haunted houses are one of the many things that Fort Worth, Texas, does right. Halloween is a big deal around here, and if you’re looking for some insane, feels-like-real-life frights, we have some of the best haunted houses in the country to explore. Get your big-kid pants on; it’s time to get spooked at one of these three haunted houses in the Fort Worth area.
Hangman's House of Horrors
Located on the site of a 100-year-old military base that was built as a helium production plant in the early 1910s, Hangman’s House of Horrors has been a Fort Worth staple for over 30 years. This 45-minute walk will leave you trembling and wondering if the actors are truly actors, or the actual scary zombies they impersonate so well. New this year, you’ll find an awesome interactive art installation, where you can have some fun with friends and family on social media. Have young children who don’t like to be scared? Attend a “Scaredy Cat Night” at Hangman’s, where the lights are on and there are no active scares, only candy and a Halloween gift to share. Make it scary, or make it cute, at Hangman’s House of Horrors.
Cutting Edge Haunted House
The site of Cutting Edge Haunted House will leave you speechless in itself. This Guiness World Record holder is located in a 100-year-old abandoned meat-packing plant, in a section of Fort Worth historically referred to as “Hell’s Half Acre.” Produced by the makers of famous haunted houses across the country, this insanely believable haunted house is filled with multiple levels and themes, crazy special effects, and some of the most terrifying actors you’ve ever witnessed. There are jaw-dropping scares around every corner, with some extra chainsaw action and believable corpses hoisted up on the second level throughout the meat-packing facility. Don’t miss this world-class haunted house.
Six Flags Fright Fest
This might not be the scariest option on the list, but it’s definitely one everybody will enjoy. Every year Six Flags Over Texas produces an extra scary portion of the theme park to host Fright Fest, where you can witness the walking dead that will surely knock your socks off with a scare or two, and some extra haunted attractions. Through Oct. 31, guests can purchase a Fright Pass to gain access to all of the haunted attractions on site, like the Curse of Ra Haunted House, the Killer Theater, or the Art of Torture exhibit. There’s plenty of Scare Zones to keep your heart racing all night long, so beware!
