House of Torment, Haunted House industry leader and Austin’s premier Halloween attraction, is set to heighten and frighten the Austin community with new psychologically thrilling experiences, expanded themed hospitality offerings, and interactive entertainment in their new 40,000 square foot location. The haunted attraction opens for the fall season on Friday, Sept. 22. Tickets and VIP passes are available now at This year, the adrenaline pumping horror adventure begins outside and on the grounds of the popular haunt location with an all new “dark carnival,” featuring a creepy freak show, and disturbing clowns roaming freely inside and outside of the property. Inside, three unprecedented haunt attractions (a creepy manor, haunted penitentiary, and horrifying carnival) will feature immersive movie-style sets, new advanced animatronics with 200 skilled actors, and fragrance pods and technological tricks, that play on all five senses, designed to thrill and engage horror fans. New adventures await at Mindspark at House of Torment with all new “Escape The Room” games, and the “Scare Store” gift shop will feature 2017 special edition Halloween merchandise. No visit to House of Torment would be complete without a visit to Kreepy Kabob Eats, the onsite food and beverage location, which will have carnival themed food and include new menu items like popcorn, candied bacon, and caramel apples, along with a newly expanded beer and wine menu curated by Haymaker Austin. New storylines, bigger psychological thrills for Fall 2017 season: Shadows of the past, inhuman creatures, and maniacal beasts and deranged clowns await those visiting House of Torment. Monsters and ghouls wander the interior and exterior grounds, giving no reprieve to those who set foot on the property for their night of horror. Elaborate costuming and realistic sets immerse visitors in a story they won’t forget. Once inside, three all new haunt attractions feature terrifying adventures that are not for the faint of heart. Expect to encounter the unforgiving, soul-capturing, ghoul nun, Mara, in “Graveside Manor: The Possession.” “Blackthorne: The Deranged,” is home to some of the most vilest, gruesome creatures who were abandoned in a creepy penitentiary after unregulated testing went seriously wrong. Last, and perhaps the most terrifying of all, “Frenzy: Dark Carnival,” also known as the greatest nightmare on earth, debuts humanity’s darkest fears, and for the unsuspecting guest, they may just end up the star of the deadly show. Enter the Darkness: “Blackout” Event Experience The highly anticipated “Blackout” night returns this year with a standing invitation for daring groups of friends to enter the attraction with no light to guide them other than a single glow stick. Monsters and ghoulish entities, outfitted in the latest night vision technology, roam freely within the pitch-black rooms of the expansive venue, seeking to torment all who enter. Guests can only escape by knowing a secret password. Capacity is limited and all guests will be required to sign a waiver before entering this popular special event.
