If Halloween Horror Nights isn’t scary enough for you, brace yourself for a truly terrifying event at Tales of Terror Haunt! Located at Warrior Sports Park on West Colonial, Tales of Terror Haunt is the perfect spooky activity to visit this season. With a marketplace, food trucks, a haunted trail that might make you cry, and Zombie Gellyball, Tales of Terror has something for everyone.
Marketplace & Food Trucks
I’m going to start with the marketplace and food trucks because even if you’re a scaredy cat like me, this is for everyone! The marketplace is free to attend, so you can visit just to browse through Halloween wares! We had so much fun looking through the stalls of different vendors. At the marketplace you can find stickers, clothing, candles, keychains, and much more. Personally I loved looking at all of the stickers, and many of them were Halloween themed too!
When we visited, there were also tarot card readers! I’ve never had a reading before so I was excited to try it out for the first time. My reading was surprisingly accurate, so much so that my best friend decided to get a reading too! Tales of Terror also has food trucks available for some snacks throughout your evening of fun. The food trucks will vary each night, so definitely check out their instagram to see what will be there when you visit.
Ok, here’s where things get scary! Personally, I’m a chicken. I visit Halloween Horror Nights because with the constant stream of people, it’s easier to spot a scare actor around the corner! However, at Tales of Terror, you enter the House individually – just you and your party. I hesitate to say too much about the house, because I don’t want to give any spoilers! I will say that for an event that started as a home haunt two years ago, this trail was off the charts cool. The special effects were incredible and the scare actors were great. There was even a room that had lasers covering the floor so it looked like you were treading through water. I was and still am seriously impressed, though I’m still having nightmares too.
The theme of the trail this year is “The Wasteland”. The story entails a shapeshifting demon named Ashess and her creatures, who have taken over a bayou. Be prepared for spooky creatures, bayou residents who’ve lost their minds, and a bloodthirsty cat. There are scare actors everywhere in this house, so don’t expect them to be only around corners or behind walls. They might be above or below you too, so keep your eyes open… and maybe take a deep breath or two before you go in!

Oh, I forgot to mention, you can also opt for the scare actors to touch you. If you want some extra scares and want to let them grab onto you as you walk through, you can wear a glow stick around your neck. This differentiates you from those that are not wearing glow sticks, AKA the ones who want the easy route like me!
Halloween is only a couple of weeks away, and Tales of Terror Haunt is ready to make you scream. Even if you don’t like scary things, be sure to check out their marketplace and food trucks for fun items and treats! Witching you all a Happy Halloween!
