Beyond Trick-or-Treating: Fun Family Activities for Halloween Season

Trick-or-treating may be the standard Halloween tradition for most American families, but the holiday has branched out extensively over the last decade.
Today, Americans spend over one billion dollars visiting Halloween-themed attractions. Where are they going, and what are the best activities for your family? The experts at are offering some spooky answers in this ultimate fall to-do list.

Farm Fun
Many farms offer tons of fall activities ideal for families with young children, including picking the perfect carving pumpkin, finding your way out of a corn maze and drinking homemade apple cider. Other fun activities include pony rides, hay mazes, non-spooky hayrides, petting zoos and even shooting pumpkin cannons.

Ghost Tours
Ghost hunting television shows have really increased the popularity in finding haunts and eerie tours. Learn more about your local area’s spooky history by taking family or out of town guests to haunted mansions, cemeteries, prisons and more.

Zombie Runs
What could be scarier than a 5K run? One with zombies of course! Zombie runs are a good time for the whole family, providing a fun reason to get kids and teens moving, using obstacle courses, contests, prizes and more as incentives.

Haunted Hayrides
Hayrides can be as sophisticated as a Hollywood movie, complete with fog machines and lights. Some have even adopted new twists. For example, on a zombie paintball hayride, guests go on a high adrenaline adventure, hunting and shooting zombies with paintballs. Haunted hayrides make guests and especially smaller kids feel safe as they ride in groups.

Home Haunts
Americans are now decorating their yards and homes into spooky graveyards with high tech lights, animations and more. Some homeowners take it further by also decorating their home’s interiors and creating mazes in the garage or backyard. Finding a spooky home haunt or neighborhood near you can be a great Halloween activity to do if you’re on a budget. For tips and tricks on haunting your own house, visit

Escape Rooms

Haunted Houses
Haunted houses come in all shapes and sizes, ranging from three-dimensional black light attractions to haunted trails to major scream parks. Haunted houses also change regularly, so it may be very different from visit to visit.

Overcoming Adversity: How to Remain Strong as a Top Haunt Even After Tragedy Strikes The Haunted Hotel in Beaumont Tells All.
The Haunted Hotel in Beaumont Texas is one of the longest, continuously running haunted attractions in the country.  This Halloween will be its 34th year in operation. It’s a little known fact that the Haunted Hotel has inspired several of the major haunted attractions across the U.S. and has been noted as a trendsetter of several “special” events, most notable being The Haunted Hotel EXTREME. This little secret in Southeast Texas has become a frightful Halloween tradition that has span several generations of fans looking to get their thrills and screams every Fall.

The origin of the Haunted Hotel began in 1982 inside the historic Rosemont Hotel in downtown Beaumont, TX.  For 21 years they continued to grow and provide the community with a safe, but scary haunted experience. At the end of the 2003 season, they closed the doors to the attraction for the last time, or so they thought.  Deteriorating conditions of the building forced them to leave the original location as the lease would not be renewed.  Owner Eric Metts said, “It was hard leaving a place that we had called home for over two decades, and we literally thought that would be the end.”  But little did Metts realize how much the Haunted Hotel really meant to their fan base.  There was an outpouring of support along with demands that the Haunted Hotel NOT close its doors on the community.

After several months of limbo, a new location was presented to Metts inside an entertainment complex, and the birth of the second chapter of the Haunted Hotel began. General Manager, Barry “Bear” Blaisdell, who has been involved with the Haunted Hotel since 1986 said, “It was amazing to see and hear how many people actually looked forward to the  Haunted Hotel, and it was a miracle that we were even able to pull off the 2008 season at all.”  He quickly added, “But it wasn’t exactly a perfect season.”  On September 13, 2008, the Haunted Hotel had an unexpected guest, a category 4 Hurricane named “Ike”.  After quick repairs, and some blood and sweat added to the mix, they managed to make it through the season and continued to scare everyone that walked through the doors for the next 8 years.  As the Haunted Hotel continued to grow and was on track for a record season, the forces that be had other plans in mind.


One week before Halloween 2015, the Haunted Hotel had an early morning fire that destroyed a majority of the attraction and forced Metts to shut down right before the main event. It was the first Halloween in 33 years that the doors of the Haunted Hotel weren’t open to screams and laughter.  

Most attraction owners would have taken the fire pretty hard.  Metts, Blaisdell and the entire Haunted Hotel crew was no exception. Unfortunately, the black cloud wasn’t quite through raining down bad luck on the Haunted Hotel. As a complete surprise to everyone, the owners of the entertainment complex unexpectedly decided to retire and close their business down, leaving them without a location once again. All signs pointed to the final end of the Haunted Hotel after a strong 33 years of serving the loyal fans from Southeast Texas and Southwest Louisiana. After scouting for several months and having no luck, Metts and Blaisdell accepted that The Haunted Hotel was officially done and had closed the doors for the final time. Ironically, there was already a special event scheduled called

“The Final Nightmare” on Nov. 1st to honor the horror icon Freddy Krueger. Blaisdell said, “It truly turned into a nightmare, but I’m used to being in control of them and this one I couldn’t change.”

There were numerous meetings, long nights and then a little luck... An opportunity arose that the duo just couldn’t pass up.  Metts was able to buy a building that he says, “…will allow us to grow and be a force to be reckoned with in the Haunted Attraction community. This new building is three stories tall, over 15,000 square feet and will be unlike anything people have seen or experienced in our area,” said Metts with excitement.   

“It’s funny actually. Ever since we left downtown Beaumont, people said we needed to return downtown.  They claimed the atmosphere was creepier and scariest there,” Metts said.  And, as fate would have it the building they bought is in fact back in downtown.  Not only that, but the building is right next door to the original location, and they actually share the back wall of the old hotel.  So after 11 years they’ve come full circle to return to downtown Beaumont.  


Blaisdell said, “It’s crazy how the journey took us from here, threw us numerous obstacles, and left us right back where it all started.” The Haunted Hotel is back at Crockett and Orleans once again for the biggest event to hit downtown in years. They are located at 447 Orleans St. in the historic city of Beaumont, Texas. Construction just began in April so only the first floor will be open to haunt-goers this year, but it’s 5,000 square feet of raw fear and all new scenes.

“Smaller sure, but our haunt fans couldn’t be more supportive and excited.  It just goes to show that if you create a proper tradition of haunting and treat your customers to the scares they expect, you don’t just end up with a great haunted house but an amazing fan base and heart-warming community support.  We have THE BEST haunted house fans,” said Metts. “Future plans are in the works to grow and spread the attraction to the other floors, but this season is sure to be the most talked about, and we want to share this experience with everyone. A bigger building means a bigger crew, more insane scenes, and new memories to share with new generations.”

They have been working very hard to get this rolling and can’t wait to show you what will be lurking in the shadows of their new haunted home. Welcome to the Haunted Hotel where once you check in, you may never check out!

Scream Hollow is the brainchild of haunted-house guru Norm Glenn.  Norm is a master of the scare, and an outstanding Halloween visionary.  Norm has been scaring people for over 20 years, and has perfected the art to a science.  Scream Hollow is the product of combining the next generation of the Mansion of Terror Haunted House, which reigned as the scariest haunted house in Austin for 7 years and voted the #1 haunted house in the nation by Lions Gate Films.  His creative outlet is paired with a long-term vision of having a permanent location, the manifestation of 20 years worth of captured haunt ideas,  and the masterful manipulation and creation by the Scream Hollow crew.  “I am passionate about everything Halloween and Haunted Houses; my mission is to create a truly terrifying haunt experience.  
Scream Hollow will provide a fun and safe environment for everyone to enjoy haunted houses, but they will leave terrified from an adrenaline-filled adventure!  That's what people want. We spent 3 years on this project with a crew of 78 builders, carpenters, set designers, partners, prop designers, and lighting and sound technicians,” said creator and owner Norm Glenn. “Scream Hollow is already one of the largest haunted houses in the country with over 70,000 hours invested in the project before we even open our doors.” With that amount of planning, building and implementing, scares come guaranteed!


2. Mansion of Terror : Phantoms is one of three horrific haunted houses at Scream Hollow Halloween Park. Some may recognize the name, as this is a beefed-up incarnation of Austin’s award-winning Mansion of Terror.

The creepy mansion is a two-story abandoned Victorian-mansion built inside an actual forest.  Story has it that in late fall of 1842, a beaten wagon-train limped into the Bastrop area containing only the children survivors of a horrific journey. Adella, a local spinster, took in the orphaned children.  She built an orphanage among the towering loblolly pines, yielding plenty of wilderness for the children to play.  The locals called her Saint Adella; however this was far from the reality, as none suspected the terror that lay within the ornate walls of this enormous mansion, or of Adella’s obsession with black magic and the conjuring of spirits from the other side. The truth of the situation became apparent with the mysterious disappearance of Adella, the discovery of children graves in the mansion’s ghostly chapel, and the magical and paganistic items left behind in the mansion.  The gates of the Mansion were closed long ago to protect unknowing travelers from entering accidentally. However, the locks have now rusted off and the mansion gates are open with no one to protect those who enter it’s walls.  Sounds are beginning to fill the grounds of the mansion again, and if you listen intently, you can hear the nursery rhymes coming through the walls and the faint screams of children from the basement below the mansion.

3. Lost Pines : Zombie City is the second of Scream Hollow’s frightening haunted house experiences.  Lost Pines is a small town in Texas which holds a deadly secret.  The town of Lost Pines has been contained and abandoned for 20 years. For reasons unknown, Lost Pines was evacuated and locked away from the public following the installation of a military outpost surrounding the city.  No one was allowed in or out, and the town became closed and abandoned…until now.  Recently, one building started humming with some sort of activity.

A group of “cyber punks” hacked the security system, convinced that government was creating a deadly biological-weapon.  They were half-right. Top-secret papers stolen from the military outpost show that something went wrong with experiments and weapons created in the city of Lost Pines, and that government feverishly tried to recreate the mysteries of their biological discoveries, attempting to control the weapon’s effects. They wanted to develop a vaccination before releasing knowledge of the weapon.  However, something went wrong in the process and the city was quarantined and secured, leaving so many questions unanswered.  What happened to the people in the town? Where is everyone?  Why is the military outpost abandoned?  Can you discover the secrets in Lost Pines Zombie City?  More importantly, can you survive and find your way out???


4. Slaughter Circus is the third haunted attraction at Scream Hollow. Slaughter Circus is the traveling entertainment extravaganza provided by Vicious T. Mangles and his crew of psycho clowns.

When we last saw Mr. Mangles and the Slaughter Circus, they were traveling city-to-city looking for a permanent location and a steady stream of unsuspecting victims.  They eventually settled in the back woods of Bastrop, Texas.  Tents and rides were set up amongst the tall pines and magnificen oaks providing a grand setting to lure the locals with a carny spectacle; Thrills and scares were contained within the curtain walls with bloody popcorn, tortuous acts, and the grand finale: DEATH.

But little did Mr. Mangles and his crew know that these woods were already occupied by the Palmer Family.  The Palmer’s dated back to the 1800s with a history of bloody cannibalism.  For over two centuries, Native Americans avoided the area and set-up warning stones around the Palmer woods.  The entrance to the Palmer’s redneck Hell was adorned with human spines and fresh skulls impaled on trees.  Local tribes whispered legends of wicked ghost screams coming from the woods in the dark of night.  Multiple disappearances across Bastrop County point directly to the Palmers sacrificing their victims in their demonic rituals.  When the Palmer Family discovered Slaughter Circus on their land, they were enraged.  Their thirst for blood was overwhelming, and on the next full moon, they vowed to dismember and barbecue every last clown in sight along with anyone who got in their way.  

The Palmer Family has surrounded the carnival, and is prepared for their epic massacre.  However, Vicious T. Mangle and the Slaughter Circus are vindictive, ruthless, and ready to fight back.  We dare you to enter the hallowed grounds of Slaughter Circus and come out alive!
