Once again I will be losing El Partner to wrestling and haunted houses. The Laredo Wrestling Alliance will be holding a special and FREE show on Saturday, October 1 as a grand opening for FEAR Haunted House. Yes, dear readers, we will be seeing ZOMBIES wrestle at this show – ha! The FEAR Haunted House is not the only show in town but it probably has a longer history because its origins are with the founders of the former Asylum and they claim is the largest of them all at 15,000 square feet.
Check out their promo video:
Next up we have The House of Horrors. They have many collaborators behind the scenes and this is their description from their Facebook page:
Description: Guerra Communications and a collaboration of Morbid Mansion Studios, Warwolfen Studios, and Spektrum Studios, whose combined attributes include: FX in The Asylum 2009, QuickTurtle’s 2010 Zombie Walk, FX in the South Texas Collector’s Expo, Rio Magazine, and Webb County Heritage: The Haunted Heritage, will bring a new class of terror to Laredo. Will you have what it takes to survive the House of Horrors?
A third addition for this year is, The Mouth of Madness Haunted House Attraction in central Laredo. They have already had their grand opening this past weekend and will continue to scare people until the end of the month. They mention a flyer that can give you a $5 discount but… not sure where you get that flyer. There weren’t as many visuals for them so I’ll be adding a photo of the site later on. NOTE: And there it is ->
Lastly, there is a page for The Slaughter House Haunted House that is supposedly coming down from Dallas soon. Their last Facebook entry was on September 27th only stating that it is coming soon to Laredo. This is their only info:
Hello , we are a company from dallas texas and we are expanding all over texas , we are looking foward to going to laredo texas and spooking out some people !! hahahaha !!!!
Considering the lack of information available, this attraction is an iffy. Maybe the Slaughter Family said, “Hey, us prominent folks with a name you think is cute for a haunted house are kindly asking you chose something else.” Who knows – maybe they are just getting a really really late start compared to the other Laredo Halloween attractions.
