There's A Haunted House For Pretty Much Everyone

There are so many haunted houses to choose from in Amarillo, that you're bound to find one that you like. There's even haunted houses that are supposedly haunted by more than props and actors...if you know what I mean.

One of those isn't listed on the map as it is new this year. The Haunt At Sundown is celebrating their first season, and you can find them on Sundown Lane. Their opening day is Oct 8.

I do recommend checking out the websites and social media pages of any haunted house you're hoping to attend. There may be coupons or specials that you can make good use of when you decide to go.

Actually Haunted, Haunted Houses

When it comes to those haunts that lay claim to being actually haunted, there's three in the Texas panhandle.

  • The Blackness - Plainview
  • 6th Street Massacre - Amarillo
  • The Haunt At Sundown - Amarillo

If you're feeling extra brave, you can check those out and see if you come into contact with something that doesn't need to wear a rubber mask to scare you.

There Isn't Much Time To Get In Those Thrills

We're already into the second weekend of October. There's only a few left before the season ends. Considering that haunted houses primarily only operate on the weekends, you're going to need to plan ahead if you want to make the most out of the season.

What Really Happened To The Tiny Ghost Town Of Cheapside

The Abandoned Herring Hotel in Amarillo, Texas

You may have passed it a million times while driving downtown, or you may be new to town. Either way, chances are you've seen the beautiful Herring Hotel. The beautiful aging brick tower sits unoccupied on 3rd and Pearce streets. It's a grand building that stands as a reminder of Amarillo's early days as a cattle and oil town and it tells the stories well.

If you've ever wondered what's inside this towering building, just take a peek below.
