Reindeer Manor Halloween Park, Red Oak
Just 20 minutes from downtown Dallas is Red Oak, south on Hwy 35E. You get FOUR haunted houses to experience. Start things off at Reindeer Manor where villagers seek revenge in this gothic themed mansion. The manor is the site of an actual murder-suicide in the early 1900s, but today sits quietly waiting for the unsuspecting. Anyone walking the halls of the manor will awaken the events of that fateful night – if you scream! No one knows who is haunting the manor, but there’s something there. Then move on to the 13th Street Morgue, where you can unravel the Maybrick murders in the haunted mortuary. This locale is built in the barn where James Sharp’s son actually hung himself and it is a confirmed haunted site.
Don’t forget about the Dungeon of Doom, where nightmares come to life in this classic 80’s style fun house. You might just hear screaming, pounding of walls, laughter coming out of nowhere and terrifying hallucinations. Don’t be too scared for the last attraction, the Shadow House, which is a dark experience. This house has no lights and killer clowns are out to get you.

Hangman’s House of Horrors, Fort Worth
If you like to know you’re giving to charity while screaming your head off, this is the place for you. Hangman’s has been around for close to 30 years, so they know a little something about being scary. Hangman’s is special – it’s 40,000 square feet, two stories and set in a 100-year old government building, now sitting vacant. It was operated by the US military during the first World War. It was supposed to be making helium back then, but who knows what was really going on inside the facility?
Hangman’s takes about 1 hour to cruise through and all new this year is Escape Labs: Mission Z, which is a survival based escape game like nothing you’ve seen before. When you take part in the Zombie Outbreak you’ll be fighting the undead left behind by Hezekiah who have now overrun the security shack and all they are looking for are some munchy, crunchy human brains. Don’t come here alone! For the best 10 minutes of the night, come to No Place Like Home 3D where stunning visual effects will trick you into seeing things that aren’t really there. Or are they? If you’re one of the chicken-livers or you have the youngsters with you, this is the perfect place to start your fun. Spooky specials are promised for 2018, so come one, come all and leave the old folks at home.
