Earlier this year, Houstonians were able to experience the city like never before at the Houstonopoly pop-up. The exciting event saw the classic board game brought to life, reimagined in the likeness of Houston. Here, participants could meander through a massive, 10,000-square-foot board populated with city-centric locales such as Minute Maid Park, Toyota Center, Astroworld, and NASA. This October, Houstonopoly is resurrecting with a Houston-centric Halloween experience and a skele-TON of fun for the whole family!
During daylight hours, the pop-up will be costumed in seasonal decor fashioned with Halloween photo-ops for all the little ghouls and goblins. Families can get in on the festivities at Houstonopoly’s “Trunk or Treat” weekends running all month-long, featuring spooky surprises, pumpkin painting, and trick-or-treating with a twist as the little ones navigate the board game.
Like Dr. Jeckyl and Mr. Hyde, Houstonopoly will transform into an entirely different creature come nightfall. After the sun sets, the pop-up will become a fright fest for daring souls aged 16 and older. Here, the stakes are raised. One cast of the dice could send them to jail, or worse, a hair-raising Haunted Circus or straight to the graveyard.
“Everyone had so much fun with game and all the H-Town photo-ops this summer, we can’t wait to share this awesome, spooky twist on the entire experience,” said Sherrie Handrinos, owner of Haunted Houstonopoly. “Everything during the day is filled with non-scary festive fun for kids and adults of all ages, with lots of great sets for Halloween photos, but at night, we flip the switch with haunted rooms and live actors, so if you like the thrill of good scare, we dare you to enter.”
Costumes are not required but are highly encouraged – Haunted Houstonopoly will give special prizes out for winners of the Best Costume of the Hour for daytime sessions.
The pop-up will take place at 2501 Rice Boulevard starting this October. Free parking is available in the front, back, and side lots of the building. Street parking and a public parking garage adjacent to the street will also be available.
Daytime family-friendly tickets start at $20, while Haunted Night tickets for adults 16-and-over are priced at $35. Tickets include access to the experience for sessions up to an hour and 15 minutes. Following which, staff will utilize the 15-minute closures to sanitize sets and wipe down any items touched by guests and staff.
