Renowned for its influence on the Texas wine industry, CapRock Winery also serves as a linchpin of gregarious fraternization with the return of its Comedy Night, when the expansive facility plays host to standup comedians tickling funny bones on both local and national circuits. Onsite entertainment gets a boost from the facility’s 11-foot, high-definition screen, professional sound system, and poetry-reciting grapes harvested fresh from the vineyard.
A maniacal laugh echoes throughout a dark room. Seconds later a woman screams. Perhaps a demented clown has taken another victim or a group of crazed inmates has finally seized the asylum. It could be anything at Halls of Horror, where psychotic killers and flesh-hungry zombies roam both indoors and out in search of unsuspecting victims. The park encompasses more than 20,000 square feet of terrors and spans four attractions—Halls of Horror, Psych-O-Ward, Trenches of Hell, and Dead Man Hanging—that are guarded by a different scare, from crazed butchers chopping something other than the typical meat to mad doctors performing experiments and unnecessary strep tests. Lucky for thrill seekers, all players are either portrayed by animatronics—some of which tower over visitors at 20 feet tall—or actors who are specifically instructed not to touch customers.
Texas Dive Center's instructors teach basic scuba-diving lessons, but their specialty courses really set them apart from other scuba schools. Divers can learn everything from underwater photography and fish identification to underwater navigation and night diving. The scuba instructors even teach divers search and recovery skills, including how to seek out and bring to the surface lost gear or submarine sandwiches.
From the outside, the innocuous MobileManCave.net looks like an average RV. Step inside, however, and the RV transforms into a roaming party vehicle, complete with a poker table, Xbox, Segways, and margarita machine. Guests can rent the party mobile for specific events, weekend trips, or entire weeks.
Like the kids and families who make their way through its 3.5 miles of husk-lined trails, the corn maze at P Bar Farms wears a different costume each Halloween. This year, it celebrates the Oklahoma City Thunder's NBA Finals appearance with a winding logo-shaped maze that has 95 different decision points and innumerable twists and turns. After navigating the hand-cut labyrinth, a feat that generally takes most maze-goers about one hour, folks can make their way around the property and enjoy P Bar Farms’ many other fall-flavored activities. The Main Barn serves as the hub where visitors can recharge with concessions, relax at picnic tables, or challenge a rooster to a sing-off during free karaoke sessions. Outside, families can enjoy a hayride over to the farm's pumpkin patch or make their way to the barnyard to pet farm animals. The property's big red barn plays host to adrenaline-fueled laser-tag matches, and mini golf allows for more leisurely family fun.
