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
