Halloween in Austin 2016


7th Annual Zombie Ball
ft. Morris Day & the Time + The Suffers

Things to Do in Austin HalloweenWHEN: Saturday, October 29th at 8PM
WHERE: Austin City Limits Live at The Moody Theater – 310 West Willie Nelson Boulevard – Austin, TX
WHAT: This Halloween, join rap groundbreakers SALT-N-PEPA and a macabre gathering of ghoulish revelers at ACL Live for ZOMBIE BALL, THE PARTY TO DIE FOR!
This year’s Zombie Ball will be the party of All Hallows’ Eve—with legendary beats and rhymes booming, the sexiest and most sinister of the walking dead will cross the blood red carpet and halls of ACL Live. Hosting the night’s revelry are Mix 94.7’s Booker, Alex, and Sara and 96.3 RnB’s Suga Rae and Snoop Daniel.
This Halloween weekend, join MORRIS DAY & THE TIME with THE SUFFERS and a macabre gathering of ghoulish revelers at ACL Live for the 8th Annual ZOMBIE BALL, THE PARTY TO DIE FOR! This year’s Zombie Ball will feature a bloody burlesque & aeriel acrobatics show, King & Queen of the Zombies costume contest & other madness to be announced! Zombie Ball 2016 takes the party up a notch. With his dynamic dancing and smooth yet gutsy, vocals, MORRIS DAY played an essential role in the development of the Twin City dance/club sound of the 1980s. A founding member of Prince’s band, The Time, in 1981, he remained with the group until 1984 when he launched his solo career.
THE SUFFERS are here to shake up the notion that they’re another soul revival band. Just as much influenced by classic rock & roll, country, Latin and Southern hip hop as they are the Stax/Volt or Muscle Shoals era, The Suffers are bringing a fresh approach to what they have coined Gulf Coast Soul. Late night legend David Letterman proclaimed in early 2015 “If you cant do this, get out of the business”, let it be known that The Suffers are here to stay!

“Austin, Texas’ premier haunted attraction” – Hauntworld Magazine

“The Austin, Texas haunted house is one of the largest and most terrifying Halloween attractions in the nation… House of Torment is a more-than-formidable challenge for even the bravest of heart.” – ABC News
This Halloween Season, House of Torment haunted house moves to a new, larger, permanent home doubling in size to span 40,000 square feet. House of Torment’s inaugural season at 2632 Ridgepoint Drive Austin, TX 78754 will feature 3 brand new haunted houses including: Dawn of Evil, The Frenzy, and Graveside Manor. 2632 Ridgepoint Drive is near the intersection of Highway 183 and Highway 290 East only 2 miles away from House of Torment’s former home.
A catastrophic virus outbreak originating from Promontory Point is destroying the lives of central Texas residents. The city has become a chaotic disaster area run amok with voracious, maniacal zombies frantically in search of food. The insatiable beasts are seemingly indestructible and only satisfied by the taste of fresh human flesh and brains. As the violent destruction of civilization looms, a few remaining uncontaminated humans work feverishly at the local hospital to find a cure – while savagely fighting for their lives. Will you and your friends escape the contagion, or fall victim to the appetites of the merciless undead?
The most demented nightmares of the human psyche become reality when you enter the terrifying world of THE FRENZY. What can only be described as a visceral manifestation of humanity’s most crippling fears, the walls of THE FRENZY will bring to your knees in terror as you encounter ghastly humanoids, deranged clowns and maniacal beasts – each determined to torment your mind and soul. Are you ready to confront your deepest fears in the darkness? Can you awake from the nightmare unscathed?
Many souls have perished within the dark walls of Graveside Manor up on Ridgepoint Drive just east of town, but no one truly knows the story of the property’s gruesome past… or what lies beneath. Although the building has been abandoned for decades, passersby often report sightings of a decrepit old woman moving about the shadows. The macabre mysteries surrounding the mansion and the demise of so many of its guests have led to desperate search for clues. But, a dreadful fate awaits most who dare enter its doors in search of answers – will you finally uncover the secrets that lurk, or stumble into the darkness of your ultimate demise?
