As December 21, 2012, approaches, many Americans eagerly await the moment when Hades will emerge from the Underworld to recklessly devour raw egg. Until then, experience man-made terror with today's Groupon: $10 admission to the Festival and three haunted houses at Dallas ScareGrounds, the scientifically authenticated scariest grounds in Dallas or America. Dare your friends to witness the spine-tingling goblins and humiliate your weak-bladdered enemies.
Fear is the secret to happy marriages, lasting friendships, and numerous madman-created serums. Lead your scared sweetie and ghoulish gang through 23,000 square feet of pure fright. Once you make it past Dallas Scare Grounds Festival, an area that features food, games, live entertainment, and more, you'll enter the trifecta of terror. Bravely tread through zombie-infested, fog-filled catacombs in the Necrotorium, navigate macabre mazes in the Terrortorium, and experience horror in the third dimension in the Hallucinatorium. It's perfect for aspiring actors or auctioneers searching for an acceptable place to practice blood-curdling screams.
The Dallas ScareGrounds are open Fridays and Saturdays from 7:30 p.m. until at least 1 a.m. and weeknights from 7:30 p.m. until at least 11 p.m. It's located near downtown Dallas, off I-35 at 2001 Irving Blvd.
The Call is Coming from Inside the Haunted House
The Dallas Scare Grounds inarguably dominates the local haunted house scene, and especially overshadows long-time rival Trembling Phil's Disorienting Ghost Abode. Here are some of the less-horrific attractions that visitors can expect from Trembling Phil and his maze of mild uneasiness:
- Uncomfortably long handshake
- Chair covered with white sheet (weather permitting)
- Moonlight (some fees apply)
- Whistling sound generated by piccolo from high school
- Actual dog
