Are you a fan of Halloween or scary things? If so, October is the perfect month for you, as there are many Halloween related activities around here in Austin, TX. In this week’s Stoney Ridge Apartments Blog, we’ll share some local haunted houses you can visit! If you’re looking for something to do outside of your apartment, give this blog a read!

House of Torment

If you’re looking for a scare, check out House of Torment! It features three themed attractions that are sure to scare the pants off of you.

Blackthorne Penitentiary

From their site: “No one was safe once the PL4-GU3 virus found its way to The Blackthorne District. The incurable virus rampaged through Southern Mercy Hospital & The Blackthorne Asylum. Very few survived and turned to barricading themselves inside in hopes of survival. But sometimes what lurks behind bars in the darkness, is far worse than what walks in the streets. Remnants of a failed system forgot the people it incarcerated. Some have been locked up for years, and those in solitary confinement have not seen the light of day in who knows how long. We can only hope the virus has yet to pierce these walls…”

Darkest Dreams

From their site: “Transcend into a dream world of terror that would scare even the bravest of souls. A demonic entity pulls you into her nightmare where she gathers all creatures of horror. You can run, but you can’t hide from Nachtmah’s deadly grip. Attempt to escape her reality or fall prey to the demented creatures she unleashes on those who enter her world. You are getting sleepy…”

Trick or Treat

From their site: “Legend has it there was once three trick or treaters who entered the old Graveside Manor, uninvited. They wandered around the long corridors, trying to prove it wasn’t really haunted. One of the trick or treaters came across an old cassette player. As he picked it up, the second trick or treater startled him, causing the cassette player to crash to the ground. An eerie noise began to play, and an unknown dialect came screeching from the machine. The lights flickered, and the room was overcome by an evil presence. This evil spirit possessed the three trick or treaters, and they were never to be seen again. Some say The Countess got them; others say that Mara, the Nun, did. But one thing is for sure, when Halloween draws near, the locals can still hear, "Ding-Dong, Trick or Treat" in the children's voices when passing the old Graveside Manor.”

We hope you have an amazing month. Happy Halloween!
