Six Flags Fiesta Texas and SeaWorld San Antonio have undergone their annual Halloween transformations, offering a number of special haunted attractions in addition to the usual coasters and thrill rides that bring people out to the park. If the admission price doesn't scare you off — full price tickets for a family of four at Six Flag's FrightFest can set you back around $250 — take the kiddos out for a full day's worth of entertainment. Six Flags has added four new haunted attractions for this year's Fright Fest, including the Chupacabras From Hell scare zone, featuring costumed actors dressed as the legendary goat-suckers. I don't know about you, but the idea of a theme park employee stalking me in a chupacabra get-up sounds even more terrifying than an actual chupacabra. Also new are Slaughterhouse 6, a haunted mansion featuring creepy, murderous farm children, and Nightmares, a maze that forces you to confront your greatest fears. (There is an additional fee for both attractions.) 

Over at SeaWorld. there's Unearthed Scarlett's Revenge, a haunted house attraction featuring a terrifying demon who was buried beneath the park and mistakenly unearthed by park maintenance (or so they say). SeaWorld tapped The Blair Witch Project producer Robin Cowie to craft a demented, demonic storyline. The attractions' trailer already has us saying a resounding, "Nope!"
