Texas’s Largest Haunted Amusement Park Comes Back To Life This October In Houston

Prepare yourself for a festival of fright.

Scream Fest is not your average amusement park. While others have their fair share of scary moments, particular rides and what-have-you that might score a couple notches on the scream canister a la Monsters, Inc., Scream Fest Houston makes other theme parks look like, well, a beloved Pixar movie. [Featured image: @therozyofficial]

Not for the faint of heart, Scream Fest Houston is a festival for horror fanatics. Opening October 1st, will scare the pants off anyone that enters their grounds on weekends running until November 13.

Will you be able to muster up the courage to tour all seven of the festival’s haunted houses? Ranging from the medieval Castle of Doom, to a haunted graveyard, asylum, and a Texas Chainsaw Maze, you might just be happy to make it out of there alive.

For a little more – just a little – lighthearted fun, the festival will feature a midway filled with Halloween-themed carnival games, vendors, and bars, as well as a big screen where you can watch horror movies, or even take part in shooting zombies. Furthermore, Scream Fest gives visitors the chance to take out the walking dead at their Zombie PaintBall attraction – entrance is included in the ticket price, though you’ll have to pay for paint.


All the while, Scream Fest will feature live concerts on a massive stage every night to wake the dead.

The best part about Scream Fest is that all of their attractions are included, with the exception of paint at the paintball attraction, in the ticket price – even free adults drinks!

Visitors must sign a waiver prior to entry. Pre-sale tickets are now available starting at $10. Scream Fest opens on October 1 at 1500 Elton Street.
