Scary for Charity
If you want to get truly terrified this Halloween, hop on Interstate 30 and head west. Worse than the traffic on Woodall Rodgers, your destination, Hangman's House of Horrors, is a three-acre scream-fest featuring one overly ghouled house and three side attractions -- McDagenville, The Labyrinth and 3-D Wonderland. All the proceeds go to charity, so at least when you soil yourself you can say it was for a good cause. Hangman's is created by a string of sponsors and more than 1,000 volunteers, including countless zombies, beasts and were-babies. They promise there's literally something around every corner, an assertion supported by the event's annual inclusion among The Travel Channel's "America's Scariest Halloween Attractions." It's open 7 p.m. to midnight Friday and Saturday every weekend until Halloween, with bonus nights 7 to 10 p.m. on October 26, 27, 30 and 31. Tickets are $20 for all four main attractions or $30 to jump the line. Special offers and coupons are available online at hangmans.com. If you're taking a high-tech broom, enter 2111 N. Forest Park Blvd. in Fort Worth on your GPS.
Fridays, Saturdays; Oct. 26-31. Starts: Sept. 16. Continues through Oct. 31, 2011
