I am a HUGE fan of Haunted Houses. Actually, I am a huge fan of Halloween in general...always have been!
I'm more excited than a fat guy at a buffet!Every year, my friend Rich and I scope out the Chicagoland area haunted houses and try to find the absolute scariest ones to attend!
And this year will be NO different!
Our first stop this season will be a visit to the Statesville Haunted Prison. OOooooooh! I hope I get the BeJeebuz scared out of me!!!
See, the thing is...I rarely REALLY get scared, so I need a GOOD haunted house. When walking through with a group, I like to be first because at least I will get those initial scares of the people jumping out at you.
Last year, I brought along a friend (who I will not name, but I should because it's hilarious!) who was completely FREAKED out the entire time. I have to say...it was adorable. It was so funny to watch him scream like a little girl, and he clung to my arm so tightly that I was bruised the next day!
We will also be attending Reaper's Realm once again. This is a very good haunted house, and quite long. You get your money's worth!
Ok, so Here's the scariest moment I ever had in a haunted house:
We were walking through a dark room with a whole group of about 30 people. It was pitch black, so we couldnt see anything. All of a sudden, all the lights come on, and we are looking at each other like, "What's Going on?" We stood there for about 2 minutes, when all of a sudden a guy dressed in regular clothes and holding a walkie talkie comes through the door. He had a very worried look on his face, and was talking into his handset.
Then, he announces pretty calmly, "Sorry for the delay everyone. There has been an accident and if we could just get your cooperation, we are just waiting for the ambulance to come. It should only take a few minutes..."
So, we are all slightly concerned, hoping that nobody really got hurt too bad. Then, over the walkie talkie, we hear "We are not able to locate the gunman yet, but he is still on the premises..."
WTF??? Someone got shot!
Then another 'employee' walks through the door with a warning. "I hate to inform you guys, but there has been a shooting tonight, someone has a gun and for your safety..."
Then all of a sudden, the door is thrown back with massive force, and a guy with a gun is in our room, and fires a shot! We all duck, right as the lights all go out!
Of course it was a blank, and then the scary haunted house lights come back on, and we are told to keep moving...
I tell ya...I saw my life flash before me.
That was the scariest sh*t I had ever experienced!
But what a thrill!
I can't wait to go back for more!!!
So, are YOU excited about haunted houses? Do you get really freaked out? If so, then I want you to come with me! HAHA! I get a huge kick out of watching scaredy cats!
