    Hey guys!

    The rowing team is going to a Fright Night tonight. It's where the local amusement park sets up all these haunted houses to scare the bejesus out of you. Problem is, I'm so scared!!!

    I'm psyched that I'm going to be spending more time with the team outside or rowing, but I just can't handle those houses! I made it through half of one then booked it.

    Are any of you guys scared of these things?! They're messed up.

    Nah, I can't deal either. I'm always scared a guy with a chainsaw or a Republican will jump out at me.

    No, i have never found them to be anything but funny at best, downright silly and pointless at worst.

    I agree for the lower quality ones. But there are a couple of big productions here in Atlanta that are really good ($18-$25 each). Went to Netherworld last year and going to a different one tonight. icon_eek.gif

    Parts of them scare me, like when someone jumps out when you aren't expecting it. The best one here is called Nightmare on Pendleton Street. It's done in an old mortuary home.. pretty spooky. I love haunted houses!

    Wow. My favorite line was I believe in Geology. Lol.

    Enjoy this rather hilarious parody site.

    again, it's a PARODY site.

    disclaimer: it's a parody. meant to be funny. not real.

    just making sure I'm avoiding the "flames of hell" posts in response....

    If that is a theme park you are going to, try to look at it this way. All the "spooky" stuff inside are dolls operated by computer or by mechanical rotors, curtains blown about by a hidden fan. If in total darkness you may brush your face against a piece of string hanging from the ceiling, and wierd music, screaming or other sounds are guaranteed to come from a set of hidden speakers, just like the hi-fi speakers you have at home. And if there happens to be a power cut, there will be real darkness, and at first total silence, then you start hearing genuine groans, probably from the underground cellar. Now that is something to be really scared of, because they are real!
    They are the groans from the people working in the control room.

    They don't bother me. I worked in one as a kid so if I ever find myself at one I'm always anticipating someone jumping out from behind me around each corner I turn. I guess they may be spoiled for me..

    The scariest haunted house that I can do is the Haunted Mansion at Disney. ha ha!! I don't do well in dark, claustrophobic spaces with chainsaws and axes.

    I can't seem to get scared by Haunted Houses; I tend to find them funny. At the same time, I did go to a Haunted Corn Maze this weekend, and was very glad that one of the people I went with got scared by everything--it made it far more entertaining.

    This is the town that I live in. I live in the middle of all these places, and walk by them on a daily basis. I live in Savannah's historic landmark district.

    I agree with ya MSU. Went to a haunted corn maze before in VT with a friend's wife who is from Russia. She wasn't socialized with having Halloween so she was a riot in the maze. At one point she was shoving me cuz I was going to slow. Ah...... good timesicon_smile.gif

    Well, I live in the historic district of Savannah, Georgia. When I moved here, my Mom and step Dad invited me shopping on Hilton Head Island, leaving my Dad to paint my apartment (built in 1873). He told me that he felt like someone was standing behind him, and it made him turn several times.
    Then, my friend Justin came over, and felt like he was being watched in the bathroom. He always feels this way. This along with stuff rustling in the night, impressions in my mattress etc. One day, I visited the museum across the street, where I learned that my entire neighborhood was built on top of a paupers cemetary. They have found all kinds of bones etc. It doesn't really bother me, because I am usually too tired to care when things happen. It just goes along with Savannah. Its a very creepy old city, many say its America's most haunted city.
