9th Annual Terror on the Bayou Halloween Festival is going on until this weekend
The festival is set for every Friday, Saturday and Sunday in October
For the ultimate Halloween experience, be sure to goblin’ up tickets to the 9th Annual Terror on the Bayou Halloween Festival in Jefferson, Texas each Friday, Saturday and Sunday evening, October 8-31, 2010. Two attractions - one location.
The legendary Runaway Fright Train will feature the Midnight Stalker as he chases the children through the dark and spooky woods! The scenes and haunters along the railroad track will keep you at the edge of your seat and give you a laugh now and then, too. G and PG-13 runs are oriented to specific age groups. The first run of each night is family-oriented for ages 2 to 92 for howling good fun, while the later runs are geared toward patrons that want the ultimate Halloween experience full of spine-tingling thrills.
You’ll get the willies walking through the spooktacular Creepy Screamin’ Corn Maze, now more than an acre, which includes a walk through the Piney Woods, the Haunted Cemetery and culminates with the infamous 100 foot underground Tunnel of Doom. Walk through the home of the Boggy Creek monster as depicted in the upcoming feature horror movie, “Boggy Creek”, filmed in Jefferson and Uncertain. The movie is loosely based on the old Big Foot or Sasquatch legends, says Brian T. Jaynes, director and producer.
Once within the maze, you cannot escape the monsters, ghouls and dangers lurking in the foggy mist. Evil clowns, land of rats, spiders and snakes, skeletons and ghouls and a toxic wasteland. Something sinister is hiding there. You know something is going to reach out and touch you -- you just don't know when or where. Your nightmares become reality – not all monsters are make-believe!
Afraid of the dark? Then tour the Corn Maze on Saturday from 1:00 – 4:00. Take a walk through the stalks at an exceptional value of $5 per person. This event is perfect for families, youth and church groups and features static-display haunts. Or kick it up a notch for the G-rated evening maze from 6:00-7:00 each Friday, Saturday and Sunday and get a thrill from the haunters in the maze.
Terror on the Bayou Halloween Festival will have something for everyone…Carnival games with prizes for all ages; glow sticks and other Halloween products; and concessions. Plus free activities for the entire family when you purchase a corn-maze or train ticket: mini-maze and mini-haunted house for children under 48 inches; movies and fireside ghost stories. On Halloween evening, come participate in Pumpkin Carving Contest and Best Costume Contest for CASH PRIZES.
Prices range from $14.50 - $18 for Runaway Fright Train and $12 - $15 for evening Screamin’ Corn Maze. Combination tickets are available at discounted rates ranging from $23 to $27.50.
