The 13th Floor San Antonio has been rated one of scariest haunted attractions of 2011, according to trade publication Hauntworld Magazine.
The 13th Floor, located at 1203 E. Commerce, was designed by professional designers. The haunted house won the 12th place spot on the magazine. The haunted attractions were selected for their advanced special effects, passion for detail and their overall ability to produce screams. Each haunted attraction included on the magazine’s list had at least $1 million worth of Hollywood-calibre sets and special effects. These attractions also hire professionally trained actors, make-up artists and equipment operators.
But haunted houses aren’t just child’s play. Each year, Americans spend $1 billion visiting haunted houses.
“Nightmares are brought to life at these professional haunted attractions through Hollywood special effects technicians, makeup artists, set designers and very talented actors,” says Larry Kirchner, editor-in-chief of Hauntworld Magazine. “Americans love the adrenaline rush, and these haunts provide visitors with a sense of exhilaration that can only be experienced at these haunted attractions. Nightmares really do come true at this year’s list of top attractions and are definitely not for the faint of heart.”
The 13th Floor opened in San Antonio last year. The attraction’s opening day is Friday, Sept. 23. The house will stay open until Oct. 31. General admission tickets are $19.99. ..
