Halloween is a festive time of year where people can pretend to be someone else and receive free candy. Not only are there costume parties and trick or treating but another popular feature of Halloween is haunted houses. Haunted houses have been around for years bringing joy and fear to others. People pay admission to enter and regret it later.

Amarillo has their share of multiple haunted houses people can choose from.

There is 6th Street Massacre which is open 7 p.m. to 12 a.m. on Friday and Saturday and is located at 3015 SW 6th Ave in Amarillo. They charge admission of $25 to get in. The 6th Street Massacre used to be an old movie theatre and it is rumored to be haunted.

“I liked the 6th Street Massacre because it was a good, family fun place to be,” junior Kali Russel said.

There is also the Amarillo Scaregrounds to satisfy that frightening need. They are open 7 p.m. to 12 a.m. Fridays and Saturdays. They will also be open from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. this Sunday, the 29th, and Tuesday, the 31st, located at 2736 SW 10th Ave. Amarillo Scaregrounds is the town’s largest haunted house featuring five attractions; Terror, Insanitarium, The Basement, Blackout Maze, and the Zombie Apocalypse which is a laser tag attraction.

“I liked the Scaregrounds because there is a variety of haunted houses and they sell food,” freshman Jaiton Hernandez said.

The Scaregrounds allows customers to pick between individual room passes ranging from $5-$20, an entrance to every attraction costs $35 or customers can choose to pay $50 for an all-night pass.
