As the Texas heat begins to dwindle, the month of October has arrived and brought with it the chilling anticipation for the season of ghosts, witches and skeletons.

Visiting one of DFW’s local haunted houses is the perfect way to embrace your spooky side just in time for Halloween night.


For $29.99 – $58.06, Cutting Edge offers frights of record breaking proportion.

The entire multi-story building is a meat packing plant abandoned an entire century ago, and takes a whopping 55 minutes to travel through.

Lines for Cutting Edge are notoriously long, so arrive early or pay the extra money for a Timed Ticket or Speedpass.


Dark Hour uses an impressive 30,000 square feet of haunted space to tell an elaborately themed storyline of 13 witches and their ancient Egyptian evil forces.

Tickets range from $28 for general admission to $75 for a VIP experience.

In addition to their Halloween attraction, Dark Hour also offers seasonally themed shows throughout the year.


Halloween enthusiasts who want to take their haunting experience one step farther can step right into a classic zombie movie by visiting the DFW Zombie Hunt.

Visitors are armed with paintball guns before boarding an army styled vehicle to go out and save the city from a swarm of infected zombies.

Ticket prices range from $20 – 60 depending on the number of rounds and vehicle.


With a unique outdoor attraction, Dark Path tells the haunting story of Old Alton Bridge, also named Goatman’s Bridge after a murdered goat farmer whose ghost still haunts it.

For $20 per person, each group of visitors is given a single lantern to guide them on their trek through ghoul infested woods.


Although their $52.99 – 72.99 tickets are on the pricier side, Fright Fest makes up for it with a plethora of spooky options.

Their haunted repertoire includes four mazes, six scare zones, seven live performances, and all of Six Flags’ year-round roller coasters.  

“It’s the thrill of it,” senior Julie Kim said, clearly looking forward to taking part in the haunted house Halloween tradition this month. “It just adds to the spooky factor.”
