Fort Worth hung up on haunted house

October 9, 2016 by  

Fort Worth residents looking for a scare this Halloween season are heading out to the Hangman’s House of Horrors.

The large event features four haunted houses as well as some opportunities for food, music, photos, and more.

Now in its 28th year, the house of horrors is believed to be the largest charity-benefiting haunted house in the world. All of the net proceed go to charities including the American Cancer Society, A Wish with Wings, the Boys and Girls Clubs of the Greater Fort Worth Area, and others. To date, the attraction has donated over $2m.

Four different haunted houses are featured on the site. The classic Hangman’s leads visitors through an abandoned government mind control facility that has now been taken over by a bloody serial killer known for his noose. ‘Outbreak’ is a zombie-infested security shack, while ‘McDagenville’ is a backwater village filled with hillbilly tormentors. Lastly, 3-D Wonderland is a non-scary maze that takes people through mind-bending special effects and optical illusions thanks to the use of special paint and 3-D glasses.

In addition to the mazes, the area also has a festival area with food trucks, live bands, festival style activities, and photo-ops. Visitors will be able to buy novelties and other promotional products, including custom drinkware and T-shirts.

The Hangman’s House of Horrors will be open every Friday and Saturday from 7:30 pm to midnight at 4400 Blue Mound Rd. They will additionally be open every day from October 26 to 31. Tickets are $25 a person or $35 for a fast pass. Anyone interested should visit the website for more info.
