The Haunted Mayfield Manor and Pirates! Legends of the Gulf Coast is now under new ownership.  Jay Easley has taken over the businesses and added another dimension to the attractions. Galveston’s people and culture attracted Easley to make the purchase.

“It was a legitimate excuse to be down here more often. Coming from Las Vegas, we really enjoy being on island time,” said Easley. 

Both attractions now offer video introductions to prepare you for each experience. More interactive technology has been added in the Pirate exhibit with “sound pistols” each guest learns even more about the history of the Galveston pirates, most notably Jean Lafitte.

A “Goonies” exhibit has been added to the Haunted Mayfield Manor with new animations. Guests will receive $2 off any single admission attraction if they mention “Mitchell 2017” at the register. Each attraction is open year round for more information and updates please call (409) 762-6677 or visit their Facebook pages.
