San Antonians can consider Friday the 13th the beginning of Halloween season with the return of a popular local haunted house.

On Friday, 13th Floor Haunted House San Antonio will kick off its season a bit early in honor of the spooky holiday. Locals shopping for shocks can stop by from 7 p.m. through the attraction's 10 p.m. closing time.

This year, the haunted house will offer more points of fun, with additions of an indoor bar, axe-throwing area and mini escape rooms for $5 per person per game.

The 13th Floor is also bringing in two new attractions: La Llorona and the Clown. Promo from the haunted house cautions fright-seekers to "hold your children tight and be faithful of heart" or risk being snatched by La Llorona. The narrative tease for the Clown sounds a lot like Stephen King's It, although this monster returns every 13 years instead of 27.

Tickets for opening night run $19.99, though special rates are available for members of the Fright Club. Those so deep into the scary stuff that they want to make a job out of it also have an opportunity to apply to work for the 13th Floor.
