7 Things to Do this Halloween Other than Trick or Treat

Beyond Trick-or-Treating: Fun Family Activities for Halloween Season

Trick-or-treating may be the standard Halloween tradition for most American families, but the holiday has branched out extensively over the last decade.
Today, Americans spend over one billion dollars visiting Halloween-themed attractions. Where are they going, and what are the best activities for your family? The experts at Hauntworld.com are offering some spooky answers in this ultimate fall to-do list.

Farm Fun
Many farms offer tons of fall activities ideal for families with young children, including picking the perfect carving pumpkin, finding your way out of a corn maze and drinking homemade apple cider. Other fun activities include pony rides, hay mazes, non-spooky hayrides, petting zoos and even shooting pumpkin cannons.

Ghost Tours
Ghost hunting television shows have really increased the popularity in finding haunts and eerie tours. Learn more about your local area’s spooky history by taking family or out of town guests to haunted mansions, cemeteries, prisons and more.

Zombie Runs
What could be scarier than a 5K run? One with zombies of course! Zombie runs are a good time for the whole family, providing a fun reason to get kids and teens moving, using obstacle courses, contests, prizes and more as incentives.

Haunted Hayrides
Hayrides can be as sophisticated as a Hollywood movie, complete with fog machines and lights. Some have even adopted new twists. For example, on a zombie paintball hayride, guests go on a high adrenaline adventure, hunting and shooting zombies with paintballs. Haunted hayrides make guests and especially smaller kids feel safe as they ride in groups.

Home Haunts
Americans are now decorating their yards and homes into spooky graveyards with high tech lights, animations and more. Some homeowners take it further by also decorating their home’s interiors and creating mazes in the garage or backyard. Finding a spooky home haunt or neighborhood near you can be a great Halloween activity to do if you’re on a budget. For tips and tricks on haunting your own house, visit www.hauntedhousesupplies.com.

Escape Rooms
Escape rooms offer an immersive and interactive experience like none other. These Halloween-themed attractions involve working together to solve puzzles and riddles in order to escape a room in under an hour.

Haunted Houses
Haunted houses come in all shapes and sizes, ranging from three-dimensional black light attractions to haunted trails to major scream parks. Haunted houses also change regularly, so it may be very different from visit to visit. Today, most haunted attractions don’t rely as much on blood and guts as they do on interactive special effects, sophisticated costumes, story lines and computer-generated imagery. To celebrate the scary side of Halloween, get the family together for an unforgettable night filled with fun and screams.
To find America’s scariest haunted houses, trickiest corn mazes, spookiest zombie runs and every pumpkin patch, ghost tour and escape room near you, you can review a comprehensive directory of these attractions at www.Hauntworld.com.

While tradition never gets old, novel Halloween activities provide different thrills than a standard trick-or-treat trip around the block.

This little secret in Southeast Texas has become a frightful Halloween tradition that has span several generations of fans looking to get their thrills and screams every Fall.

The origin of the Haunted Hotel began in 1982 inside the historic Rosemont Hotel in downtown Beaumont, TX.  For 21 years they continued to grow and provide the community with a safe, but scary haunted experience. At the end of the 2003 season, they closed the doors to the attraction for the last time, or so they thought.  Deteriorating conditions of the building forced them to leave the original location as the lease would not be renewed.  Owner Eric Metts said, “It was hard leaving a place that we had called home for over two decades, and we literally thought that would be the end.”  But little did Metts realize how much the Haunted Hotel really meant to their fan base.  There was an outpouring of support along with demands that the Haunted Hotel NOT close its doors on the community.

After several months of limbo, a new location was presented to Metts inside an entertainment complex, and the birth of the second chapter of the Haunted Hotel began. General Manager, Barry “Bear” Blaisdell, who has been involved with the Haunted Hotel since 1986 said, “It was amazing to see and hear how many people actually looked forward to the  Haunted Hotel, and it was a miracle that we were even able to pull off the 2008 season at all.”  He quickly added, “But it wasn’t exactly a perfect season.”  On September 13, 2008, the Haunted Hotel had an unexpected guest, a category 4 Hurricane named “Ike”.  After quick repairs, and some blood and sweat added to the mix, they managed to make it through the season and continued to scare everyone that walked through the doors for the next 8 years.  As the Haunted Hotel continued to grow and was on track for a record season, the forces that be had other plans in mind.


One week before Halloween 2015, the Haunted Hotel had an early morning fire that destroyed a majority of the attraction and forced Metts to shut down right before the main event. It was the first Halloween in 33 years that the doors of the Haunted Hotel weren’t open to screams and laughter.  

Most attraction owners would have taken the fire pretty hard.  Metts, Blaisdell and the entire Haunted Hotel crew was no exception. Unfortunately, the black cloud wasn’t quite through raining down bad luck on the Haunted Hotel. As a complete surprise to everyone, the owners of the entertainment complex unexpectedly decided to retire and close their business down, leaving them without a location once again. All signs pointed to the final end of the Haunted Hotel after a strong 33 years of serving the loyal fans from Southeast Texas and Southwest Louisiana. After scouting for several months and having no luck, Metts and Blaisdell accepted that The Haunted Hotel was officially done and had closed the doors for the final time. Ironically, there was already a special event scheduled called

“The Final Nightmare” on Nov. 1st to honor the horror icon Freddy Krueger. Blaisdell said, “It truly turned into a nightmare, but I’m used to being in control of them and this one I couldn’t change.”

There were numerous meetings, long nights and then a little luck... An opportunity arose that the duo just couldn’t pass up.  Metts was able to buy a building that he says, “…will allow us to grow and be a force to be reckoned with in the Haunted Attraction community. This new building is three stories tall, over 15,000 square feet and will be unlike anything people have seen or experienced in our area,” said Metts with excitement.   

“It’s funny actually. Ever since we left downtown Beaumont, people said we needed to return downtown.  They claimed the atmosphere was creepier and scariest there,” Metts said.  And, as fate would have it the building they bought is in fact back in downtown.  Not only that, but the building is right next door to the original location, and they actually share the back wall of the old hotel.  So after 11 years they’ve come full circle to return to downtown Beaumont.  


Blaisdell said, “It’s crazy how the journey took us from here, threw us numerous obstacles, and left us right back where it all started.” The Haunted Hotel is back at Crockett and Orleans once again for the biggest event to hit downtown in years. They are located at 447 Orleans St. in the historic city of Beaumont, Texas. Construction just began in April so only the first floor will be open to haunt-goers this year, but it’s 5,000 square feet of raw fear and all new scenes.

“Smaller sure, but our haunt fans couldn’t be more supportive and excited.  It just goes to show that if you create a proper tradition of haunting and treat your customers to the scares they expect, you don’t just end up with a great haunted house but an amazing fan base and heart-warming community support.  We have THE BEST haunted house fans,” said Metts. “Future plans are in the works to grow and spread the attraction to the other floors, but this season is sure to be the most talked about, and we want to share this experience with everyone. A bigger building means a bigger crew, more insane scenes, and new memories to share with new generations.”

They have been working very hard to get this rolling and can’t wait to show you what will be lurking in the shadows of their new haunted home. Welcome to the Haunted Hotel where once you check in, you may never check out!
