How the Grinch Stole Christmas is a quintessential holiday film, and one Texas city is putting its very own spin on the fictional town of Whoville this holiday season. Downtown Houston has been transformed into “Hou-Ville,” a whimsical world filled with Texas-sized toys, festive photo-ops, and even appearances by the Grinch himself.
Tickets cost $30 for adults and $15 for children, and each group gets to spend 90 minutes inside. Time slots are available from 3 p.m. until 8 p.m. Tuesday-Thursday, and 10 a.m. until 10 p.m. Friday-Sunday. Visit the attraction’s website or Facebook page to learn more, including about the precautions being taken to lessen the spread of COVID-19.
