Celebrate Halloween in Jefferson, Texas

Posted on: October 9th, 2009 by Delta Street Inn

Spine-tingling Terror on the Bayou
For the ultimate Halloween experience, be sure to goblin’ up tickets to the 8th Annual Terror on the Bayou in Jefferson, Texas each Friday, Saturday and Sunday evening, October 9-31, 2009. Two attractions – one location.
The legendary Runaway Fright Train will feature Freaky Fairy Tales – your childhood stories COME ALIVE with a scary twist! The scenes and actors along the 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 terror.
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. 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!

Jefferson’s regular ghost walks will be in operation, too!
