Corpse Grove Haunted Trail - 1/2 Mile of Terror!

"There once was a school teacher, beloved by all. Her pupils loved her, the little town of "Corpse Grove" that she lived in loved her, and everyone agreed she was top notch in her field. She taught all grades...One through twelve...and did it all in a quaint, one room school house...as was the custom in 1800's America. But one day something went wrong...terribly wrong...the town folk accused her of witchcraft. They drug her through the town as they tortured and stoned her. Then they tied her to a nice tidy pile of dead wood and set her on fire. Her screams can still be heard they say. And with her last breath, she cursed them all and refused to let her spirit leave until her vengeance was wrought! Come, see what darkness their fake smiles hid...meet them one by one and see their TRUE faces...until you find her...the lady in white! She's waiting for you in the woods...in the town of Corpse Grove, where she died."

Thrillvania Haunted House Park

"Legend has it that Verdun Manor is haunted. You know what they say… a house cannot be haunted unless it has a history… and this haunted house definitely has a history.

In 1901, Baron Michael Verdun, a psychopathic werewolf, built a grotesque house on Voodoo Bayou. Deep within the recesses of his manor, he conducted cruel experiments on travelers, turning them into human-animal hybrids. Together with his vampire wife Lady Cassandra, he hosted fiendish masquerades, serving human flesh to his inhuman guests. Finally, one stormy night, an angry vigilante mob set the manor afire and murdered Verdun and Cassandra."

Six Flags Over Texas Fright Fest

"Fright Fest is back and spookier than ever! Dare to enter the Halloween event of the season, featuring family-friendly attractions during the day...and thrills once the sun goes down."
