Perhaps the only scariest thing about Nightmare on the Bayou is that it's located directly beside Houston's oldest graveyard. Yes, you heard that right and there have been rumored sightings of ghosts who frequent the area. This place features quality props and antics by professional actors whose only purpose in life is to startle you. True, Nightmare probably won't kill you or have you in such hysterics that you will have to be taken away in a straight jacket; but nevertheless, it does have it's own charm and it's fun to visit with friends.
