HOUSTON – ScreamWorld will be closing its doors for good after 31 years but not without scaring people one last time on this Friday the 13th.
Owner Jim Fetterly, 63, is ready to pack up and retire from the horror haunt industry. ScreamWorld’s land, located on North Sam Houston Parkway between Ella and T.C. Jester, is for sale and Fetterly has been in contact with potential buyers.
One party has expressed interest in continuing ScreamWorld.
