It happens like this: The weekend before this Annual Designated Romantic Love Day, you’ve just picked up a hot date in Bastrop. The car breaks down on Highway 304, and that AAA subscription you just renewed means nothing ’cause you and your date promised each other no cell phones tonight. On the way to get help, that shortcut you insisted you knew about gets you both lost in the woods. Ahead, in the clearing, lies an abandoned orphanage with its own cemetery. And a long-closed factory. And … is that a circus? Sound too good to be true? Scream Hollow offers you the chance to recreate this experience for about the price of a mid-range steak dinner. Walk hand-in-hand, touring the scenes of pretend atrocities across their 16-building, 20-acre, three-attraction haunted house park. If you get bored of all the zombies, cannibals and clowns, there’s a bonfire, a masquerade ball, beer and wine, and brisket sandwiches. And if you’re single, does it really sound any creepier than whatever dating app you’re on?
