There's nothing that screams Halloween more than haunted houses. If you love that adrenalin rush, you have lots of opportunities to get it in the Little Rock area. Just be sure you're ready to have you socks scared right off of you. Here's what's happening for Halloween 2017.
The Torture Chamber: The Torture Chamber in Benton is putting on its final year of freakiness in 2017. This is one of the best haunted houses in Central Arkansas, and you can experience this hyper-scary experience from Oct. 13 through Nov. 4. The Torture Chamber warns: "You must also be in good health and able to crouch, crawl, and beg for your life or at least mercy on your soul."
Haunted Hotel: You'll get freaked out just looking at the Facebook page for this super-scary haunted hotel in Little Rock. Check it out from Oct. 26 to 31, if you dare.
The Reaper Haunted House: This is a maze-type haunted house with more than 15,000 square feet of horror with 30 scenes that include live actors. It's not really kid-friendly, but it's also not over-the-top. If you have older kids, they will probably be OK. It's on every night from Oct. 15 through 31.
Creepy Works Haunted House of Conway: This haunted house in Conway has a mixture of actors, animatronics, and scenery. It's one of the best in Arkansas, especially for the price. You'll get a lot of fright for a little green. It's open weekends in October and every day from Oct. 26 through 31.
Fear Factory 501: Fear Factory 501 is in Jacksonville, about 17 miles north of Little Rock. It's open every night from Oct. 26 through 31 and Nov. 3 and 4. It's having an extra-special bash on Halloween night. Its 3-D attractions, monsters, haunted house, and torture room might be too much for some. But if you want to be terrified, this one's for you.
