The day Hangsman closes will be a sad day. I went through it with he Hauntcon tour this year and I was very impressed with what could be done with very little funds. What the volunteers did with just about $200 per room was very impressive. The made things from scratch and with hard work was professional quality. I truly hope that someone steps up to take over and keep this going in the future.
It's always sad to see any haunt go, especially one that has a great reputation.
But it does sound pretty dated, full of cliches and all the stuff you'd expect from decades past,
"The theme for the final Hangman’s is “Unhappily Ever After,” and returns to one of the most popular themes in Hangman’s history: “scary tales.”
There will be riffs on Pinocchio, Jack and the Beanstalk, The Wizard of Oz, Hansel and Gretel and other classic tales. And of course perennial favorites, such as the black-and-white checkered room, the scary clowns and the spinning tunnel, will remain. So will the 3-D Wonderland attraction and the Labyrinth maze. The attraction previously inhabited by scary hillbillies in “McDagenville” will change to an on-trend zombie theme of “outbreak.”
I wish her and the team there luck!
Dark I know it sounds cheesy but it really was a lot better than it sounds. Out of the 22 haunt we went to on the Hauntcon tour I would say that most like it a lot. It ranked in the top 5 or 6 we saw and for enjoyment factor I personally thought it was a great venue with band stand, a very good 3D haunt and it was very large. What they did with other people's leftovers was impressive and a testament of the dedicated crew they must have. I personally saw a lot Allen Hopps in the place you could tell they watch his YouTube channel. I wish them some luck it would be a shame if this place closes, but if they loose the land it's on it would too much to move and that may seal its fate.
Mike I agree I was very disappointed in Cutting Edge, I thought the best part was the que line band and the clown in que line actor. Hangman's was by far the suprise of the tour and just goes to show us that you don't have to spend lots of money to have a good haunt and that bigger is not always better. I hope Hangman will still be there on my next trip to Dallas.
I am sad to see hangmans come to an end !!! Hangmans has always been a traditional haunt here in TX. Down town Ft worth will not b the same !!!
