18 Aug 7 Tips To Help You Survive Thrillvania Haunted House Park
We like to think that, of all the haunted houses in the DFW area, Verdun Manor is the most frightening because of the nature of the crimes committed there. Tales of vampirism, cannibalism and the Baron’s horrific human and animal experiments are enough to make even the bravest visitor quake in his boots.
So why do so many flock to the Manor every Halloween? Because it’s fun – if you’re prepared for the danger that lurks round every corner.
Here are 7 tips to an ensure an enjoyable tour of Verdun Manor at Thrillvania Haunted House Park.
Tip #1 – Know your limits. Decide beforehand if this is something you really want to do. If you’re typically terrified during horror movies then this may not be for you. It’s OK. We understand. Chicken!
Tip #2 – Bring a friend, a close friend, someone you can latch on to when the going gets tough and who won’t laugh at you when you make a run for the nearest exit.
Tip #3 – A group of friends is even better. Sometimes, when there are only two of you, you don’t feel protected at all. After all, there’s just one other person between yourself and imminent death.
Tip #4 – If you find yourself in the middle of a panic attack or paralyzed with fear, remind yourself that it’s all in good fun, nothing you see is real. You will get out alive – eventually – and soon you’ll be tucked up safe in your own bed at home. Of course, then you’ll have to deal with the monster in the closet, but that’s your problem, not ours.
Tip #5 – Have fun and enjoy the show. Because it’s the best show in the country and you’ll miss it if you’re running around like a chicken with your head cut off. Go ahead, let us scare you half to death!
Tip #6 – Plan something fun and lighthearted to do afterward to help ease yourselves back into the real world and wash away all those painful, gruesome memories. Go somewhere bright and cheerful with lots of happy, laughing people around.
Tip #7 – While it might be tempting to toss back a few before you head out to Thrillvania, it’s best to be sober when you arrive. As the saying goes, “The stairway can be treacherous” and if you want to survive you need to be prepared for anything during your stay at the Manor.
