2017 DFW Best Haunted House Guide

by Steven Doyle

It’s haunting that there are merely weeks remaining in 2017. This means cooler temps, Fall parties and terrifying romps through DFW’s best haunted houses.

Most haunted houses have two prices, one for regular admission, and a second speed pass price to exit through the long lines that you will surely meet. Jump in the haunted pit of horrors for a list of our local favorites. If you wish to add to our list send us an email

Dan’s Haunted House: Take a journey into Japanese Culture and Folklore. Dan is breaking from the typical haunt template. No Clowns, No Zombies, No Chainsaws. This year’s theme is: Ancient Fear Rising we bring forth the forefathers of fear to re-take their rightful place, we will unleash the Samurai, Spirits, Ghosts, and Demons on the Dallas-Fort Worth. $20 per person. Located at 501 E. Swisher in Lake Dallas.

Cutting Edge: Considered one of DFW’s best haunted houses, this 100-year old abandoned meat packing plant has been converted into a human-processing area. A conveyor system lifts bodies several stories high and offers a unique look at fright. The 55 minute thrill will set you back 29.99 but coupons are available at their website. Located in Fort Worth.

Virtual Haunted House gives a different and more high tech version for those looking for a scare. Prepare to transport into future post-apocalyptic worlds to see if they can survive. Set up an appointment today to come try out the latest virtual reality technology. The price is as mysterious as the haunt.

Fearaphobia Haunted Attraction is located in Bridgeport, TX. This year’s Haunted Attraction is being held at the old school house built in 1929 and used for many years as a school, then it was used for other things until the building was left unused for a number of years. Fearaphobia will do their best to make this a scary good time for all ages starting at $15. They are less than an hour from the Metroplex.

The Boneyard: The Boneyard, located in Arlington, is a high tech thrill that offers a light show and grueling dark passages full of surprises with over 50 movie quality sets. The premise behind this house is that it is the sight of paranormal activity and is being investigated by ghost hunters. In addition to haunted scares The Boneyard offers a full bar complete in their VooDoo Lounge. Tickets run from $32 to $42.

Reindeer Manor: Said to be a true haunted house located in Red Oak and run for nearly 40 years. Featuring a variety of scares including the Dungeon of Doom and 13th Street Morgue, and the Manor itself, this house is high on the fright list. The attractions are priced separately at $15, but there are many packages available for those wanting the ultimate experience.


Hangman’s House of Horrors: The most theatrical of all the houses in the area with over 125 actors guiding you through four attractions including the Hangman’s House, McDagenville, Labyrinth and 3-D Wonderland (the latter best suited for children). Enjoy other features like live bands, karaoke, a Euro-bungee, laser tag, and concessions. Another Fort Worth house. Tickets range from $25 to $25 for a speed pass.


Six Flags Scare Zone has 14 ways to frighten you. Actually 9, but 6 more that are uber family friendly.  Look for 3D Cirkus Berzerkus wich is top-rated in the Southwest, to the new Curse of  Ra which will tae you to a deep portal to find a legendary Pharoah’s tomb crawling with cobwebs, and pass the ancient hieroglyphics to find out your fate.
