ScreamWorld, like your friendly neighborhood strip club, has a strict no-touch policy. You don't touch the skeletons, monsters and other assorted ghouls that populate the attraction, and they won't touch you. Of course, they don't have to touch you in order to scare the bejeezus out of you. ScreamWorld creator Jim Fetterly has been in the haunted house business since 1989, so his scare tactics are among the city's best. With five separate attractions - the Maze of Maniacs, the Haunted Hotel, Edge of Darkness, Movie Monsters in 3D and the Tobias Strange Family Cemetery - all under one roof, ScreamWorld makes it easy to get your fright on. 7:30 to 10 p.m. today. Through October 31. 2225 North Sam Houston Parkway. For a full schedule, call 713-914-1313 or visit $25 to $35.
Thursdays-Sundays. Starts: Oct. 1. Continues through Oct. 31, 2009
