Screams® Halloween Theme Park, Waxahachie

Located on a back road, surrounded by empty farmland, you couldn’t ask for a better location for a Halloween Theme Park then Screams in Waxahachie!  Just the drive out on an early evening in October will frighten you, and once you arrive, the chills keep coming!

Screams shares it’s excellent location with the Scarborough Renaissance Festival, which runs each Spring when the area is covered in wildflowers, the perfect setting for frolicking maids, knights and the occasional fauns to dance around the forest to the sound of flutes.  But in October, it’s frighteningly fun.


Know Before You Go

Screams is open Friday and Saturday evenings, starting Oct. 1st and running through Oct. 30th! Opening Weekend, Oct. 1 & 2, have discounts!

You can purchase tickets at the door, or online.  Check the website for additional discounts.  For the best discount, purchase a group tickets!

Free Parking

Wear close toed shoes that are easy to walk, and run in!

No Outside Food or Drinks

No costumes are allowed

Use your discretion when bringing young children to Screams.  Spooks are EVERYWHERE, not just in the haunted houses, and they often leave the houses, chasing scared visitors far out of the attraction!  (It’s AWESOME!).  There really aren’t any activities for younger children.  Our six-year-old, who enjoyed the haunted houses at Six Flags (well, during the day) opted to stay with Grandma and bake cookies.  However, there are always quite a few smaller children at Screams.


Typical rules apply, arrive early, stay late for shortest lines.  Also, we try to do the other activities during the busiest hours.



Carnival Games

Expect your typical midway games at Screams, but with a ghoulish twist!


The spooks, ghouls and ghost of Screams are some of the nicest people!  They are more than happy to pose for pictures!


Wax Hands

Be sure and visit Dave at the Wax Hands booth and get your own hand cast in Wax (while in WAXahachie….).  Really, this is super cool for a couple, or by yourself!  Dave and the Wax Hands are a permanent fixture, so look for them during Scarborough Ren Fest, too!


Get Your Palm Read

So, I snuck away from the hubby and kids for a bit and had my palm read!  She told me I was going to have 3 kids, be happily married and enjoy telling people about Texas.  Hmmmm……
