From scaredy cats to doggedly devoted admirers of the horror genre, this villainous venue offers something for everyone.

For one evening only Haunted Overload also offers a look at the lair without scares during Fright Night Lite, which give visitors the opportunity to see all the special effects and eerie lighting without any encounters with evil.

Reindeer Manor “sleighs” the competition with four fright sites in one location.
Deemed the oldest haunted house attraction in the Lone Star state, inside the main Reindeer Manor haunted house attendees can revel at their own risk at the Mad Mardi Gras Party. Those who dare to enter the 13th Street Morgue (which has been confirmed to be haunted!) can dig up the funereal facilities’ gruesome past; inside the Dungeon of Doom brave souls can take a time trip back to the 80s thanks to Retrovision 3D; and the only light inside the Shadow House will be the gleam of a killer clown’s ghastly grin.
Reindeer Manor also offers fun for ‘fraidy cats, with dancers showing off their killer Thriller moves , a pyrotechnic presentation, rooftop entertainment, aerial and axe-throwing shows, escape rooms and much more.
Proceeds from the horror-themed park help several charities, including Streets to Sheets Animal Rescue.
