2010 Haunted Houses

13th Floor Haunted House

Hidden downtown in a cold storage facility, two haunted houses take possession of this 105-year-old building, transforming it into a grotesquely eerie experience. “Unearthed” takes you through a tour of a mineshaft, a boiler room, sewers, cages and low ceilings. If you survive, the unlucky “13th Floor” awaits, complete with a pine-scented werewolf forest, a fire room, a water room, and an anti-gravity room. Come experience San Antonio’s newest haunted house … if you dare. (Not recommended for children under 12.) $19.99 (includes both haunts), Fri -Sun 7pm - 12am, Halloween week 7pm - 10pm, 1203 E Commerce St, (210) 338-0382, 13thFloorSanAntonio.com
