Back again for it’s 13th Season, House of Torment! Austin’s biggest, baddest haunted house experience is here again in 2015 to chill, thrill, and horrify you. Austin’s only Hollywood-quality haunt features terrifying troublemakers and tormented souls from the underworld, and if the legends hold true, the 13th year is bound to be the scariest one so far.
Austin's legendary House of Torment, a multi-layered psychological thriller, is more like a trip through a modern horror movie than just a haunted house - with detailed two-story sets, towering animatronic monsters, iconic characters and chilling scenarios. As you make your way through this epic haunted house, don’t be surprised if the sets and characters begin to seem more real than your most vivid nightmares.
“The Austin, Texas haunted house is one of the largest and most terrifying Halloween attractions in the nation… House of Torment is a more-than-formidable challenge for even the bravest of heart.” - ABC News
This 2015 Halloween Season, House of Torment is ready to entertain new and returning visitors alike with updated special effects, horrifying scenes, and a completely renovated layout for a thrilling new haunted house experience. Featured at House of Torment Haunted House are three brand new attractions - all at one location for one ticket price!
Dead End District: A town overrun by chaos and destruction, Dead End District is now at war against the dead—thanks to wayward scientist Dr. Ectobus’ and Marax’s opening of a horrific rift causing “deadites” to infiltrate the area. Once in, visitors may not get out alive as they become one of the marauders fighting for survival inside the Dead End District.
Hex of the Harvest: A cursed island, filled with pumpkins and lush vines in the deep darkness of the sea, is home to a coven of witches who’ve spent millennia casting spells and creating nightmares to dispatch on their enemies. Now, the coven must bring forth an Ancient of lore–the Ancient of the Harvest–to combine their powers of evil and collect the terrors and tears of their victims. Can you make your way through without getting cursed with the Hex of the Harvest?
Laughterhouse: There’s nothing funny about this clown house. A roaming troupe of chainsaw-wielding clowns has taken over the fallen Blackthorne District's Slaughterhouse, dubbing it the Laughterhouse. Here, clowns are strengthened by the screams and fears of all those who enter. Think you can survive going through the deranged clowns new stomping grounds?
