October is the month when haunted houses open up and bring in hundreds of people wanting to get spooked, and The Lasso is here to help students find the best boos for their buck.
To start off on the spookiest foot, Cutting Edge Haunted House is one of the best. The house even holds the “World’s Largest Haunted Attraction of 2015” title and was featured in Travel Channel’s “America’s Scariest Haunted Attractions” list. Cutting Edge is open from Friday to Sunday, and during Halloween week, the house is open Tuesday, Wednesday and Saturday. Tickets can be bought online and at the door, but Cutting Edge states that it is cash only at the door, and group tickets must be purchased online.

Hangman’s House of Horrors is next on the list. After 30 years of having volunteers scare the pants off of patrons, they know their stuff. Hangman’s has three attractions at their location: The main house, which takes about an hour to walk through and “Zombie Outbreak” and “No Place Like Home,” which are the smaller attractions that take anywhere from five to 15 minutes to complete. The house is open Fridays and Saturdays. For the week of Halloween, Hangman’s is open from Tuesday to Saturday. For more information and purchases, visit their website hangmans.com.
Last but not least is The Parker House located here in Denton. The house was voted the “#1 Attraction Spot of 2016” by TexasHauntedHouses.com. Open Friday through Sunday with special hours around Halloween, there is time to get your scare on. There are three main attractions: The Parker Mortuary, The Parker Plantation and Raliffs Sanitarium. Each attraction has its own style of scary along with its own creepy residents who still lurk around. To get more information about this Denton attraction, visit their website hauntedhousedenton.com.
