Haunted Attractions

Would like recommendations for a good haunted attraction in Dallas. Don't want a lot of stairs to climb, no crawling through spaces, no getting stuff on clothes, or getting squirted so you get really wet. Considering Thrillvania, but not sure. Any and all advice will be welcomed.

The Dallas Observer just sent this information regarding Neighborhood Haunted Houses. Everything beyond this first paragraph is from the DO, with the exception that I removed a bad word.

Friday the 13th is more than an excuse to rubber-bat your cubical and sip red wine from an IV bag while doing data entry. (We’re all doing that, right?) It’s also a chance to explore your threshold for terrifying attractions as our area’s haunted houses pry their doors open for the 2013 season.

Hop aboard the night terror train in Irving where Strangling Brothers Haunted Circus (8225 Esters Blvd.) has set up a giant circus tent filled with face-zipping, blood-sniffing psychotic clowns in full makeup. Please God, let there be a trapeze. Tickets range $30 to $50. Visit stranglingbrotherstexas.com.

In Fort Worth, Cutting Edge (1701 E. Lancaster Ave.) warms up the generators for its opening night, and they’ve got this advice for potential visitors: “You will experience intense audio, lighting, extreme low visibility, strobe lights, fog, damp or wet conditions, moving floors ... and an overall physically demanding environment.” So ... it’s like a CrossFit rave? Holy "Bad Word", that is the scariest thing imaginable. Adult tickets for the world’s largest walk-through haunted house (it’s a record-holder) cost $30 to $50. Visit cuttingedgehauntedhouse.com.

If you’ve walked through Deep Ellum during scare season, you’ve likely encountered the boundary-defying actors of Slaughter House (2615 Elm St.). They’ll chase you as you walk to your car even if you have no interest in haunted attractions. View that as A) sort of "bad word" or B) a free scare, depending on your stance. Either way, it opens on Friday night right in the middle of Oliver Peck’s big Friday the 13th bash, so wrap up your new tattoo and check out gore central. Advance tickets cost $13. Visit weslaughter.com.

We really enjoy the Reindeer Manor Abusement Park for a variety of houses with good scares. There will be a bit of stair climbing in the 13th Street Morgue but it's well lit and no one bothers you around the stairs. We also like Screams in Waxahachie for its themepark atmosphere and good ones in various parts of town are the Parker House, the Haunt House and Zombie Manor. They change things up so I'm not sure if there is anywhere to crawl through. Thrillvania has (had?) one in Thorn Hall but that attraction is easy to skip. Tayman Manor is a wonderful place but its hayride is being refurbished this year. Dollz in downtown Dallas is nicely located and while we haven't seen it yet we know how skillful the people doing it are.

We love haunted houses and have seen many! We hope to get out soon. Have a great time whichever you pick.
