Haunted house review DFW

Image I’m the type of haunted house visitor who enters with eyes shut and pushes through as quickly as possible! I’d be better of spending my money elsewhere. But for those of you who get a kick out of this sort of thing, these are the attractions that rate high in Dallas/Fort Worth. My daughter and her friends (age 17) have already gone to Cutting Edge and have reported back that it was worth the price of admission. Good luck friends!
