Spine-tingling Thrills on the Bayou

August 19th, 2011 by carriagehouse

For the ultimate Halloween experience, be sure to goblin’ up tickets to the 10th Annual Terror on the Bayou Halloween Festival in Jefferson, Texas each Friday, Saturday and Sunday evening, October 7-29, 2011. Three attractions – one location.  Tickets are now on sale at www.JeffersonRailway.com.

 The Runaway Fright Train will feature Creatures of the Night.  As you ride through the dark woods, you’ll feel the breath of the spirits encircling you. The scenes and haunters along the track will keep you at the edge of your seat and give you a laugh now and then, too.  G and PG-13 runs are oriented to specific age groups. The 7:30 run of each evening is family-oriented for ages 2 to 92, while the later runs kick it up a notch.

 For the ultimate Halloween experience, walk through the stalks of the Creepy Screamin’ Corn Maze. More than a dozen haunters in the maze will give you the willies. The Maze is more than an acre and includes a walk through the Piney Woods, through the Haunted Cemetery and culminates with the infamous 100-foot underground Tunnel of Doom. Don’t come alone – you will be spooked by more than Halloween ghosts!

 New this year, our 1800 sq. ft. CarnEvil of the Damned Haunted House, out in the middle of the Piney Woods.  Just the 2 minute walk to the house will get your heart pumping.  Something sinister is hiding there. You know something is going to jump out and scare you – you just don’t know where or when. In this Circus of Haunts, you will not be safe from fear.  So go ahead and scream – it won’t matter!

 Afraid of the dark?  Tour the Corn Maze and Haunted House from 6:00-7:00 each evening of the event, and then jump on the G-rated train at 7:30.  Get a thrill from the family-friendly haunters.

October’s Spooky, Scary Events in Jefferson, Texas

September 20th, 2010 by carriagehouse

So you wanna be scared do you? You want to see ghosts and goblins and have things go bump in the night. Well, I can’t think of a better place to go then right here to Jefferson, Texas, the most haunted town in Texas.

The Historic Jefferson Railway has been closed for most of September so that they can retool the ride for Halloween. The steam train will reopen the first week of October for Terror on the Bayou. You’ll get the willies walking through the spooktacular Creepy Screamin’ Corn Maze, now more than an acre, which includes a walk through the Piney Woods, the Haunted Cemetery and culminates with the infamous 100 foot underground Tunnel of Doom. The Runaway Fright Train will feature the Midnight Stalker as he chases the children through the dark and spooky woods! The scenes and haunters along the railroad track will keep you at the edge of your seat and give you a laugh now and then, too.

The Grove, a real live haunted house, will be open for tour as well. Texas Monthly has named this house as the 8th most haunted place in Texas and people have been experiencing (hearing, smelling, feeling) strange things in this house for over 100 years. Tours of this spooky little house will be available by reservation only during the month of October. Call us and we would be more then happy to help you make those reservations for your visit to the Carriage House Bed and Breakfast.

There are only a few rooms left for the weekends of October and Halloween weekend. Please call us at 903-665-9511 to make your reservation or go to our website at www.carriagehousejefferson.com to take a look at our rooms and book online in real time.

So get a witch’s shawl on. A broomstick you can crawl on.

It is creepy, kooky, mysterious and spooky.
Jefferson is the most haunted small town in Texas. In fact, the place is just full of ghosts and spirits. Don’t believe me…watch this video. All of the ghosts and ghouls that reside here in Jefferson make it the perfect place to spend the scariest time of year.
The Historic Jefferson Railway will once again this year be spooktacularly creepy. The 8th annual Terror on the Bayou will run every weekend until Halloween. Not only will the haunted Runaway Fright Train make you scream in terror but the Creepy Screamin’ Corn Maze will take you through a haunted cemetary and end in the Tunnel of Doom. This is the stuff of nightmares!
If that doesn’t make your blood run cold, then maybe a ghost hunt will scare you to madness. By the glow of a lantern light, you can be guided through the most haunted sites in Jefferson. Tours are every Friday and Saturday night with three tour times Halloween night (8pm, 10pm, 12pm). If you are unfortunate enough, maybe you will even see one of the ghosts.
Of course, no Halloween would be complete without a costume party and contest. So come in your scariest, creepiest costume and party at Auntie Skinners Halloween night. Prizes will be awarded to the most original or scariest costumes. A terrifying time will be had by all!
Didn’t get enough bloodcurdling fun Halloween night? On November 7th, Jefferson will host the History Haunts and Legends convention. This annual all day paranormal convention will be held at the Transportation and Visitors Center and will have speakers on topics such as Bigfoot, clairvoyants, and of course ghosts. Spooky!
So if you are looking for a frighteningly good time, make the short drive here to Jefferson. Just don’t be afraid of anything that goes bump in the night!
