“Hell’s Half Acre has a fantastic history and was one of the roughest parts of Texas in old Fort Worth. It was the home of gambling, gunfights, murder and mystery,” Todd James, co-creator of Cutting Edge Haunted House, said.
The “Acre,” a byword for mayhem and hell-raising in the late 19th to early 20th century, was a typical red-light district made up of bordellos, cribs, sport houses, dance halls, gambling parlors and saloons. Many of the unsavory characters that passed through the Acre were looking for nothing but trouble. Infamous gangsters like Butch Cassidy, The Sundance Kid and their hole-in-the-wall gang, Doc Holiday and Jesse James were a few of those characters. It was a place where legends were made, myths were started and mysteries remained unsolved.
“It’s full of some crazy unsolved mysteries and that’s the best backbone for any good Haunted House,” James said.
Although it was a real place, separating myth from reality is a difficult task for anyone. What is better for a haunted house than to be located in a part of town that is already known for its questionable and haunted past?
One of the long standing murder mysteries that haunt the alleys of Hells Half Acre is that of Sally. Sally was a dance hall girl whose corpse was found splayed out and nailed to the door of an outhouse. No other information is known. One tends to wonder if it is Sally’s lost and troubled spirit that wanders the upper levels of the old meat-packing plant. Several crew members have heard the crying of a woman in the empty rooms on the top floor. Considering the history of the building and the land on which it was built, these experiences don’t seem that farfetched.
Two other specters are often seen in the old plant, one in the north warehouse and the other in various areas of the old original building where a fire occurred in 1923. Frances Woodruff, “cast mom” and set designer, will not go in the northern warehouse alone, even during the day.
“I’ve seen something over there,” Woodruff said. “You can laugh if you want, but there is something in that part of the building and I will not go over there alone,” she says with a shiver.
The enormity of the outside presence is matched only by the sheer length of the show itself. It takes almost an hour to complete. Boasting the Guinness World Record for the largest walk-through haunted house, this experience will test your endurance as well as your fears.
The Cutting Edge, as the name suggests, is not just a haunted house but an interactive entertainment event that includes a multitude of highly themed sets, scores of animatronics, a Monster Hearse on 44 inch tires, an exploding bus and a heart-pounding sound system. The haunted house also features a drum line whose athleticism and talent sends chills racing through the guests as the drummers not only entertain but also scare the public with the intensity of their performance.
“We have these top notch percussionists that perform in a sort of apocalyptic industrial alley way. They play on all sorts of heavy metal objects throughout the whole night. These guys are running around scaring people, but they never stop playing,” James says as he describes the drum line.
If all of this wasn’t enough, there is still the 30,000-square-foot maze aptly named “The Pit.” The Pit is an enormous game, a race through the darkness with only a 4-inch glow stick to light the way.
Cutting Edge Haunted House is truly, “An Experience You Can Only Hope…. to Forget”
