Boo! It’s the 5 days of HOU-loween! We’re taking you on a five-day journey filled with information for all you ghouls and goblins out there to make the most of your Halloween, featuring festivities here inside the loop. This is the fifth post in the series.
What’s Halloween without a haunted house? Well, there’s one inside the loop that has received national attention, as one of the 13 Best Haunted Houses in America, as ranked by Hauntworld Magazine (who knew there was a magazine for haunted houses?). Of course we’re talking about Nightmare on the Bayou, billed as the only haunted house in Houston with real ghosts. While that may be a hard claim to prove, it seems to have worked to give its visitors the fright of their lives.
Situated off I-10 at Studemont, Nightmare on the Bayou is located directly next door the Houston’s oldest graveyard, the Episcopal-Masonic Cemetery, with graves dating back to the mid-1800s. Once inside, you’ll see a ghastly display of goblins, ghouls and ghosts that are sure to make even the most macho’s heart rate rise. With the attraction’s long history and attention to detail – not to mention the highly trained and experienced actors (or are they actors?) – it’s a definitely an all-encompassing, high quality experience. And given the feedback to their Twitter account, they are not disappointing their clientele.
Tickets are available at the attraction for $30. A $40 VIP ticket gets you to the front of the line, which we’re sure will be well worth it during the Halloween weekend. Ticket sales begin at 7pm, and the doors open at 7:30. Advance tickets on their Web site carry a $4 service fee.
