If you want a fright this Halloween season, then Hangman’s House of Horrors in Fort Worth is the place for you.
This Halloween haunt has been in place for a few years now but, the 2013 show appears among the best since Hangman’s first opened. Houses’ director, D’Ann Dagen told of several updates for the latest version.
“We have redone almost 80 percent of the themed rooms in the house,” Dagen said. With the houses running on Friday’s and Saturdays Sept. 13-Nov. 2, from 7:30 p.m.-midnight and nightly Oct. 27-31 form 7:30-10 p.m., there are ample opportunities to catch the chills and thrills.
Over 1,500 people have been involved this season in helping create the houses and make then as scary as possible, the current version literally has something special for all age groups.
Many people also may not be aware that the money made from these houses goes to five different charities, which makes it even more important to attend this Halloween if time allows. The experience can take up to an hour at each site to complete if people visit all the different themes and rooms at the houses’ two locations.
There are several other special upcoming events that may interest people who want to experience the haunted house in a different light.
Scaredy Cat Night – Sunday, Oct. 27, 5-7 p.m. This is billed as “half the price, half the scare.” Lights are up, and the atmosphere is family friendly with $12.50 admission for four attractions.
