Van Buren Frightmare

The downtown Amarillo haunt will nearly double in size this year, thanks to the addition of a new outdoor area.

Matt Hite, AAYC executive director, said the haunt has more improvements inside, too.

“We got a lot more help and a more professional-type setup,” Hite said. “We had artists come in and paint the walls … with a lot more details.

“We’re going the extra mile to make everything look more … realistic,” he said.

The haunt features 43 actors in several rooms that are generally Dark Ages-themed, he said.

“We added more face paints, costumes — everything has a lot more oomph to it,” Hite said.
