DFW’s Best Haunted Houses

Time to Get Your Haunt On!

Haunted Houses….boy, do we love to get the bejezzus scared out of ourselves. We intentionally climb on roller coasters that go careening through the air. And every October we seek out places designed to instill enough fear to create nightmares for the next twelve months.

Here are DFW’s best haunts for this October.

Creekside Manor — Midlothian, TX

Creekside Manor will be open for 13 Days of Terror in 2019 by opening the last weekend in September on the 28th and 29th. Then the Manor will be open Fridays and Saturdays in October from dusk until midnight. They will also be open October 31, November 1 and November 2, 2019. Tickets are $15.00 for adults and $12.00 for children under 48″.

Creekside Manor is surrounded by ominous woods and threatening waters. The house awaits new guests. Will you dare walk through its gates, pass its cemetary and enter its narrow, winding halls? Are you ready to face fear itself? Then by all means, come in! Once inside you may never, ever leave.  The Manor is preparing something very special.  Plan now to come see our most terrifying attractions. We have dares and scares for the whole family.

This year Creekside Manor is working to support our community by partnering with Manna House of Midlothian, Texas. Manna House gives needy families a helping hand with food, financial and other assistance. A portion of ticket sales will benefit this cause. All “Fight the Real Frights” donations will directly benefit needy families in Ellis county. It’s that time of year again, time to step up and help Creekside Manor fight the frights of hunger and need.

 The Dark Hour witches have found their most powerful Leader yet. Dark Hour is transformed by the Vampire Witch.The Vampire Witch Lilandra has taken over, and is taking the coven to a dark place. She is setting out to impose the will of the Coven over all the DFW metroplex.

 With the magical eclipse known as the Dark Hour spell eminent Lilandra has summoned every Vampire Kin and Clan to usher in the Eternal Darkness. Surely bloodsuckers at every turn paired with the fiercest minion every Coven member has to offer will be enough to achieve the DARK HOUR!  Can you survive making your way through the crumbling Transylvanian cemetery, The Manor turned Vampire roost, and The Crypt city of the thirsty dead? Or will you end up joining the legion of the damned?
