Haunted houses are always abundant this time of year and the perfect way to get a little scared. So this past weekend a friend and I went out with that very intent in mind. We started with Chinese food to end a craving. Then as soon as the sun started to set we headed for the scares.
Hanna Haunted Acres has five different attractions. We made it through three. After all it was just the two of us and we made easy targets. We got there right before it got busy and made it trough the first attraction in no time.
The line for Outbreak wasn’t long but the screams and noises from inside were definitely fear inducing. My heart started racing before we even made it up to the ticket taker. We got grouped together with a man and his faughters, who we promptly let go first. As we wandered through the lab into the morgue zombies of all kinds popped out. Following us asking for brains. Getting right in my friend’s face asking if her brains were tasty. On we went through a destroyed ambulance all the way to a fork in the road. We went left and survived the outbreak and the thrills with a few screams here and there.
Next we decided to try Carnevil next. Which gives away what haunts this haunt. Clowns, moving walls, and blacklights gave this an altogether kooky and spooky vibe. Everything moved and you had wear glasses. Not to mention all the clowns that popped out and called out to you. My friend probably hated that one the most since she hates clowns.
To end our night we went on the Haunted Hayride which is a favorite of mine. It’s not the scariest but it definitely has its moments. Not to mention your fellow riders help make it better or worse. This year was amazing. Not only were there parts where you couldn’t tell if it was a dummy or actor but the people riding with us were hilarious. I think the hayride is my favorite because they climb up on the wagon with you. Not to mention they get as close to you as possible without touching you. But the people we rode with were scared silly and talking back to the actors like crazy. After the one actor got up on the wagon with us he got as close to the girl next to my friend as physical possible without touching. She was screaming and practically laying down. Then after he got back off the wagon she yelled after him, “Yea that’s right. I’m gonna come back for you when you’re sleeping.” Which caused him to pop up again right behind her. And cue the screams. It was just so much fun.
I definitely can’t wait for next year. Especially the potential to be scared bigger and better.
