    I've been living in the greater H-town area for like, 10 years now and I've still never been to one! I plan to end my suckitude this year, so which is the best?

    Let's hear some haunted house stories and recommendations!

    about 12 years ago, (in my early twenties) worked at a haunted house for the March of Dimes. That was, by far, the best HH I've ever seen. Unfortunately, I don't think they do a HH any more.

    My idea of a good haunted house: lots of well-designed, original, and clever theme rooms and areas. The one I worked at had an alien room with alien eggs that had smoke coming out of 'em as aliens would swing down from the ceiling. Next room would be a car wreck room where we got a real car (totalled) and scattered dead bodies around it (of course the bodies would come to life and attack). Then there was the swamp room, the Elvis room, the bloody sheet room, etc. A HH that puts time into the design and visuals is lots of fun to me.

    My idea of a BAD haunted house: a plywood maze with kids in rubber masks jumping out to startle you. Sadly, this seems to be the norm for Houston HH's, which is why I don't attend them any more. Back in the day, I'd go to almost all of 'em - loved that stuff.

    Yeah, I'd definitely like to avoid the lame "maze" haunted houses. If I want to work a friggin' puzzle I'll stay home! Can anyone make some recommedations, here? I've heard a couple adds for "Scream World" and I've heard that this one contains the famed "haunted hotel..." is it true/any good?

    I don't believe in ghosts or anything, so is the place just downright spooky and creepy, or what? If it's a tour of scary-ass places, cool, but if it's some lame "ghost-hunting" expedition, screw it.

    Oh well. I did some checking on the web and found out that "Phobia" has a new location on 290 I think that includes something called "Clown Phobia 3-D." That sounds pretty awesome!

    Clowns are the scariest things in the world. There can be no exception to this. Remember the movie IT. It was probably way toned down because it was a made for tv miniseries but the clown scared the heck out of me.

    I get the impression that lots of people find clowns rather unpleasant, but what it is that makes them scary? I always liked clowns!
