Do you like haunted houses? As scary as these may be, some people think they are …fun and exciting! (EEK) For others, it scares the daylights out of them.
I am one of those people! Put a mask on, and I want nothing to do with you – especially in the month of October!
Strangling Brothers Haunted Circus, the Scariest Haunted House on Earth, will open in Trader Village in Grand Prairie on September 18, bringing a haunted experience designed to take fear and terror to a whole new level.
Located at 2602 Mayfield Road, just off state highway 360 and next to the Grand Prairie Airport, this might just be the scariest and creepiest attraction in the DFW market.
Strangling Brothers patrons will walk through an incredible haunted house made from 25 freakishly tricked out semi-trailers. The haunted scenes inside and outside are arranged in a maze filled with cutting-edge animatronics, innovative lighting and mind-blowing special effects. During the hour-long walk-through, guests come face to face with freaks and misfits, making this the scariest haunted house on earth. *This house took about 30 minutes to go through.
This new dimension in Halloween fun and fear begins with a unique experience of animated clowns, Zombie dancers and a host of other freaks waiting to introduce fans to the Strangling Brothers Experience! This skillfully themed haunted house provides a very unique and surprising level of intensity, igniting a new type of fear energy some have called the “extreme in scream”.
“You might pee your pants from fright, but you will be laughing when you are done,” said Bob Tillotson, co-owner of Strangling Brothers Haunted Circus. “If we have scared them silly, and they are smiling at the end, we have done our job. Less gore, and more real experience in fright is the key to this haunted house.”
The Haunted House is based on the tale of a mysterious traveling circus led by The Strangling Brothers, who have spent a lifetime recruiting freaks and outcasts for their horror show.
My contributors had a great time in the Strangling Brothers Haunted Circus. “Pure entertainment from start to finish. You’re greeted by a wonderful sideshow that will take you back to the days of strongmen and fire eaters. You then move into the queue tent which is rather spacious and has a 16 foot projection screen to watch the twisted tale of how the haunted circus came to be. Upon your entry you may be greeted by a half-sized horror as she seeks to frighten you in the midst of a selfie. The attraction itself is dark, claustrophobic, and foreboding at times. The timid run away and even the fearless only inch forward where they would normally stride boldly. The scares are frequent and well planned and the cast take their roles quite seriously. You will not get one out of character. From clowns to cooks, monkeys to maniacal doctors, this haunted house has a variety of scares planned to cater to everyone’s fears. Next week also kicks off their opening of the Zombie Hunt where customers will have the chance to “hunt” zombies with paintball guns. I would highly recommend this to anyone who likes haunted houses or is looking for a good scare.”
