Expanded café and bar, more parking, and a new campsite area provide the ideal Halloween destination
Scream Hollow kicks off a second spooky season September 16 through November 5th, open Friday through Sunday during the month of September, and extended days in the month of October. Nestled among 20-acres of forest off Highway 304 in Bastrop, mere miles from the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre gas station, and down the dark and gloomy Split Rail Lane, Scream Hollow Wicked Halloween Park is the ultimate Halloween experience and quickly becoming one of the top haunts in the country. The three separate attractions on site, Mansion of Terror Phantoms, Zombie City: The Factory,and Slaughter Circus give haunted house aficionados the ultimate adrenaline inducing experience across 16 buildings and 45 minutes of nothing but haunted house action. If you can find your way out that is!
Additions for 2016 include a Zombie City that is now twice as long with an added abandoned factory, Mansion of Terror has added a Witches Coven in the woods and a Voodoo sacrifice, and Slaughter Circus has added a redneck village complete with cannibal house.
Besides more blood curdling thrills, Scream Hollow has completed five more acres of parking, a Steampunk covered stage for bands and the added benefit of now being able to camp on site with the addition of 40 camping sites to extend your terror time at the Hollow.
Scream Hollow encourages patrons to make a night of it and enjoy a glass of wine or beer at the Rabid Bat Vampire Bar, and a bite to eat at the Cackling Witch Cafe and Bakery. Families will enjoy browsing the fantastically creepy vendors for some hand crafted Halloween oddities and kids under twelve who may be too young for the haunts may indulge in the kids activities available nightly.
Scream Hollow is the brainchild of Norm Glenn, who has been scaring people since he was a teen, helping out with haunted houses in high school. (Now his own teenage son participates in the festivities as Mr. Cuddles, a creepy clown who escaped from prison.) Glenn, who ran the popular Mansion of Terror in Round Rock for seven years until 2009, once ran a nonprofit haunted house in Germany while serving in the U.S. Army. From 2000-2002 he put on a haunted house in his front yard in Austin until it became too successful and caused traffic issues whereby he decided it was time to bring his passion to a greater public and open an official site. Glenn spent three years on the current site with a crew of 78 builders, carpenters, set designers, prop designers, and lighting and sound technicians.
“We have taken what started as the Mansion of Terror haunted house, which was featured annually on the Travel Channel and placed #1 haunted house in the Nation by Lions Gate Films, and created something next generation that is truly spectacular and piss-your-pants scary,” says Glenn.” You will experience 16 buildings across the 3 haunted houses. If you want to experience what it feels like to be in a genuine horror movie then this is the ultimate experience! “
A portion of proceeds will go to the Boys and Girls Club of Bastrop County.
