GRAVESIDE MANOR: THE POSSESSION
Restless spirits lurk in the shadows at Graveside Manor threatening to possess those who dare to cross their paths. Crippling fear overcomes visitors as they come face-to-face with some of the most demented creatures on earth, none of whom are as terrifying as the ghoul nun, Mara. Once you check in, she wants to keep you there…forever. Attempt to find your way out of the manor or face your tragic demise.
BLACKTHORNE: THE DERANGED
Once part of the thriving Blackthorne District, the penitentiary was abandoned after gruesome experiments birthed inhumane creatures that could not be tamed. Left behind were some of the vilest perpetrators to exist, making this one of the most dangerous places in the world. Trespassers believed human and creature of this terrible place died out over the years, but those who have ventured inside in search of the truth have never returned to share what they have discovered.
THE FRENZY: DARK CARNIVAL
This demented carnival showcases deranged creatures determined to torment visitors’ mind and soul. Encounter a host of maniacal beasts and clowns that will feed off your worst nightmares and take you on a ride you won’t ever forget. Debuting humanity’s darkest fears, it is unlikely you will make it out in the same state of mind you came in with. Email Haunt Owner
Upon arriving each group (NOT each person) is given ONE glowstick. After all participants sign a waiver of liability, the group enters the House of Torment in total darkness where monsters and mayhem await.
Inside the depths of the darkness a horde of monsters roam freely, equipped with the latest in night vision technology, ready to reap havoc upon all those that enter.
As you navigate your way through Blackout it is not uncommon for participants to get lost, separated from their groups, and/or have their glowsticks stolen by the terrors that lurk inside.
For some the experience lasts 20 minutes, for others the experience lasts will much longer. This event is not for the faint of heart and is not recommended for those under the age of 13.

Too expensive to be doing the same thin over and over. Not to mention your in line for hours to go through a house that takes 10 min.Posted 10/17/14

This particular haunted house is very expensive and even more so if you choose to get the express tickets. Otherwise, you will be waiting in line for hours. The house itself is not that scary and takes about 10 minutes to go through. I have been to much better haunted houses in smaller times for half the price. If you live in the Austin area and have money to blow, then this is not a bad experience. However, I encourage you to find other venues, especially if you are a Halloween fan.Posted 10/13/13

It is expensive, but there are a lot of props, so it is understandable. Lots of flashing lights and loud noises, par for any decent haunted house. I think there was a bit too much of the actors jumping in your face and being loud, which kind of prevented me from really being able to enjoy it and see all of the designs that so much time and money went into setting up. Plus, it may have been just my luck, but for me it seemed like the actors chose the places to jump toward me where there was a possibility for me to injure myself. (ex - right when I was walking by a chair whose leg was awkwardly jutting out for me to bump/trip over, a place where there was a trough and the floor stepped down, a perfect place to twist an ankle or something) This happened several times throughout the first house so I felt like it could have been intentional. The first house is the best, I wish I would have been able to slow down in it because the 2nd and 3rd features (yes, there are 3) were not nearly as good. The second had fewer actors, which was good. They should reverse the order. Although the rules say you can't touch the actors, they get so close to you (sometimes actually touching you) that it makes for a very uncomfortable element, especially if you have personal space issues. Perfect for a "scare" but I am a bit older and would have liked to enjoy the visual stuff more than just getting jumped at for a cheap surprise scare. I mean, you can do that without any costume on even, why waste all of the money on the scenes? And most of the actor costumes/make-up jobs were awesome!!!!Posted 10/13/13
