Halloween Festival and Thrillvania

October brings spooky fun to Terrell with a haunted house voted the best in the Dallas area. 
Haunted Verdun Manor tells the tale of the twisted Baron Michael Verdun and his vampiric wife, Lady Cassandra. This unearthly duo hosted fiendish masquerades and bizarre dinners in their strange house on Voodoo Bayou.

Now, each fall, the ghosts of the baron and his lady haunt the remains of their mansion, burned with them inside it by angry citizens seeking revenge for the unspeakable horrors visited on their families and friends.

This themed attraction features 30,000 square feet of horrifyingly real theatrical sets, atmospheric stage lighting, eerie special effects, and a talented cast of costumed live actors guaranteed to treat visitors to a frightfully good time.

Other spine-tingling Thrillvania attractions include Cassandra's Labyrinth of Terror, Sam Hain's Hayride, and Granny Lupu's Séance Theatre.

Downtown Terrell welcomes whole families of spooks and goblins with safe Trick or Treating, music, contests, and other Halloween favorites.
