With Halloween just around the corner, there are plenty of spooky things that abound as folks get out and about to enjoy the haunted holiday season, with parties, gatherings, and all kinds of creepy things to do. One such place is just a short drive to the north end of Liberty County, and if you are not too frightened, then the Haunted Drive might just be for you.
The Haunted Drive is an all-new attraction located at The Retreat at Artesian Lakes. They have something for the entire family, with their drive-thru attraction over a mile in length, as well as other haunted attractions for everyone.
The Haunted Drive is full of various haunts, and you will find zombies, witches, werewolves, wicked clowns, and so much more, with some very spooky surprises along the way. For any fans of classic horror movies, you will even see some of your favorites, like Jason and Michael Myers, as you travel through the eerily dark pathway. The cost for the drive is $35 per vehicle or $45 for a truck with riders in the bed.
If you are lucky enough to make your way out of the drive, you can stop for the other attractions with both the adult and kids haunted houses to keep the scares coming, or you can try and find your way through the haunted maze. There is also an area for the kids to enjoy some trick or treating, as well as concessions and an outdoor movie area, with some classic scary movies to keep the thrills and chills coming. Ticket prices vary on the individual attractions with special combo ticket prices.
Operating hours are each Friday and Saturday through October from 7:30-11:30 pm; they will also be open Sunday, Oct. 24 from 7-10 pm and again on Halloween night from 7-11:30 pm. You can find out more details and purchase tickets at their website haunteddrive.com or by calling 832-591-8484.
