Don’t get all excited, this isn’t a ghost tour! We didn’t go on a ghost hunting adventure. I have no pictures of apparitions to show you!
This is a year-round haunted house located across the street from the Alamo.
We love haunted houses and even have our own special effects Halloween night at our house, so anytime we go to a haunted house we always check out the special effects.
Honestly, I expected this to be pretty cheesy and short. IT’S NOT!
You begin by getting into a cage elevator that takes you to the next floor where the tour begins.
Once you get to the top, you are greeted by a host who tells you the story of this haunted mansion. From there on out, it is a self-guided tour.
For those that know me, know that I don’t get scared easily (unless it’s a snake). My teenagers and my husband, though, it’s a different story! Well, my husband becomes scared if there are clowns involved, which there were!
Our Thoughts & Tips
Definitely worth it, any time of the year. We also liked it due to the fact that we could go back through it as many times as we wanted that day. We did the 6-way combo which lets you get into ALL the attractions (Guinness World Records, Wax Museum, Believe It or Not, Tomb Rider, 4D Movie, and this). With that ticket, you have 2 days to use it.
If you are not able to be in confined or tight spaces (claustrophobic), I would skip this attraction as there is a spot where you walk through that has NO room (sorry, that is the best way I can describe it, without giving away too much).
Also, don’t forget to stop at the end to look at the pictures that are snapped of your group =)
