Dripping Springs approves haunted house for second consecutive year

By Megan Wehring 

DRIPPING SPRINGS – While the temperatures are still scorching hot, the city of Dripping Springs is looking ahead.

After a successful run last year, Hell Country Haunts is slated to host another attraction come October. On July 19, the Dripping Springs City Council approved a use agreement between the city and Hell Country Productions, Inc. for the use of Dripping Springs Ranch Park (DSRP) to host a haunted house attraction.

A few changes are in store,  including moving from an exterior structure into the Expansion Event Room for safety reasons, and there will be a 60/40 split in revenue between Hell Country and the city of Dripping Springs.

Hell Country Haunts is bringing another haunted house attraction to Dripping Springs this year.

Aaron Sulser, of Hell Country Productions, Inc., said that while the nonprofit will receive 60% of the revenue, most of the money will be geared toward donating to local organizations such as the Burke Center for Youth in Driftwood. 

The event is open to members of the community and admission costs will range from $10-$15 per person, Sulser said.

The haunt will run for two consecutive weekends to increase revenue on Oct. 21 through Oct. 23 and Oct. 28 through Oct. 30.
