Ready to be spooked out of your mind (in the best way possible)? You’re in luck — tickets are on sale for House of Torment, described as the “scariest haunted house in Austin.”

With plenty of new attractions to keep the hairs standing up on the back of your neck, House of Torment will be on from September to November 2021, so book your tickets now!

The Boogeyman is Coming to the House of Torment

So, what’s on for this year’s haunted house? Although it’s difficult to rival the terrifying year that was 2020, House of Torment has a few new attractions up its sleeve that are sure to come close.

For example, the Boogeyman will bring back the worst of your childhood nightmares and get your heart pumping in no time.

“As a kid, it’s hard to escape the fear of something under the bed or in the closet,” the House of Torment website reads. “Everything is always scarier in the dark. But, what if he was real? The monster in the dark, the boogeyman. What if the belief in him is what makes him real? What if generations of past were telling the truth of these monsters, and no one believed us? This is the tale of the Jensen’s family massacre on Blackthorn Drive.”

Give Axe-Throwing a Go 

If the boogeyman isn’t your thing, you may be more inclined to give the axe-throwing attraction a go. At the economic price of $5 for five throws (purchased on-site only), you can channel your inner Freddy Krueger or the lumberjack alter-ego of your dreams — just be sure to go easy on the caffeine before your session.

“Become intimate with a 1.5 lb. piece of whirling wood and metal as you learn, practice and then finally square off toe at Class Axe Throwing!” the House’s website reads.

The Forsaken Attraction Will Terrify You

Plus, there’s “the Forsaken,” where the queen of the damned and her squad of zombies try escaping purgatory.

Also don’t miss Operation: Laughing Place, which features the creepiest killer clowns you’ve ever seen. The attraction is described as a way to test a new hallucinating gas effect that “causes victims to see extreme colors and clown like apparitions. We are testing out new ways to filter this weapon at certain facilities.”

The House of Torment will announce more updates for the 2021 season as Halloween approaches, so be sure to keep an eye out for news online and via their social media channels.

You can also earn rewards by downloading the Fright Club app and checking in using the QR code at the merch store. Members of the club gain access to plenty of perks including exclusive pre-sale access, offers and discounts.
