Cutting Edge Haunted House is here to ask you one question:
What scares you the most?
Maybe it’s the kind of darkness that swallows you whole. Or not knowing who – or what – may be lurking in those woods.
Maybe it’s clowns that make you shudder… with their blank stares, white faces, wide smiles, and creepy, bloody red cheeks. Or it could be the slithering movement of snakes or the sight of dolls that send chills up your spine.
We all know what it’s like to feel scared.
Your blood pressure kicks into high gear. A ball suddenly shoots up and clenches your throat. Your heart races. Sometimes you can’t even look away from something so horrifying until your stomach starts to churn.
Fear is part of what makes us human as it helps us survive and ward off danger. But the feeling of fear coursing through our veins is also something that we seek out… especially this time of year.
Here at the Cutting Edge, we know what it’s like to feel scared. We’re still one of the largest haunted houses in 2018. And some new creatures have been lurking around our parts.
So, what’s new at the Cutting Edge Haunted House? Read on to find out… if you dare.
If you’ve never heard of the Cutting Edge, let us bring you up to speed:
We’re located on the outskirts of Fort Worth, Texas in what’s known as Hell’s Half Acre. Back in the days after the bloody Civil War, the Acre was home to the poor Fort Worth souls lurking on the fringes of society.
They were the thirsty gun-slingers. The dancers and gamblers in the smoky, sticky saloons. And then there were the robbers and vagabonds who hid out in the Acre when they weren’t in the clinker.
It wasn’t long until the city of Fort Worth put an end to the riff-raff. In 1908, the old meat packing plant went up. For decades, the plant went unoccupied… until one day in 1991 when the old packing equipment started working again… only they started moving human corpses instead of meat.
This was the beginning of the Cutting Edge Haunted House. And Hell’s Half Acre has never been the same since.
Birth of the Cutting Edge
It could be the spirits of all those unfortunate souls who once called Hell’s Half Acre home. Maybe they’re trying to stir up trouble again when Halloween rolls around. The Cutting Edge could be a source of bad energy like in real-life haunted houses. Or maybe it’s just a bunch of horror-loving, mischievous beings who love to scare people. We’ll let you decide.
Annually we’ve ranked as one of the most terrifying Halloween experiences in the country. We’re recognized as the largest haunted house by the Guinness Book of World Records in 2009 and 2015. And we’re still one of the largest with a staggering average of 45-55 minutes to complete… that is if one of our meat hooks don’t catch you first.
What have we got cooking up at the old meat packing factory? We’ve got some pretty exciting news to spill with you…
We’re Ranked One of the Most Innovative Haunted Houses!
You read that right. The Cutting Edge is one of the best haunted houses in 2018 according to America Haunts. And if you’re not familiar with who they are, we’ll break it down for you below:
If there’s one association that understands haunted attractions, it’s America Haunts. Each year, they go deep into the darkness of some of the country’s biggest and baddest haunted houses. They go behind-the-scenes in search of the most innovative when it comes to acting, makeup, special effects, and props.
This year, America Haunts named Cutting Edge Haunted House one of the most groundbreaking and best haunted houses in the country. And aside from mingling with some haunted meat packers and blood-thirsty vampires (the marching band will rise from the dead, too), what can visitors expect this year?
Jurassic Swamp, Dragon Lair, & 1920’s Circus
Dinosaurs have been extinct for 65 million years, right?
We thought so, too. Until a swamp began to puddle around the Cutting Edge… resurrecting the dinosaurs from their very long slumber in the process.
You won’t find Chris Pratt lurking around here (Sorry, ladies). But you should know that the dinosaurs are not pleased to be awake.
Neither is the mama dragon whose babies are causing quite a ruckus around Cutting Edge.
And if that weren’t enough, a circus has also rolled into Hell’s Half Acre. Rumor has it they were once the biggest show in town back in the 1920’s. Suddenly they’re back and they’ve pitched their tent right at the Cutting Edge… and they’re definitely clowning around.
