Screams 2018 Promises More Scares!!!!
WAXAHACHIE—Screams is all new and completely transformed for 2018! Think you know Screams, then think again! The 23rd season of Screams will begin on Friday, September 28, 2018 with all five of its haunted houses completely redesigned and enhanced for the 2018 season along with scores of haunting new characters added to provide the scariest Screams experience ever!
Screams 2018 will be much more shocking and terrifying than in years’ past with frights hitting you the minute you enter the park and not stopping throughout the night! Screams is NOT recommended for children under 16.
“Our new Creative Director, Ray Don Mitchell, has brought 15+ years of Fright and Haunted House experience to Screams to help take Screams up to the next level of creative frights and downright terror in each of our 5 haunted houses” says Coy Sevier, Screams General Manager. “In addition, we have a whole new corps of roaming actors that will help set the atmosphere of heightened fear from the moment people enter our event. You don’t want to miss a minute of Screams 2018!”
