Well, now that Halloween has passed....
Truth. I have never been at any Haunt anywhere, in my entire life! Until Oct.24th. I got a "Scream Pass"
to one of Playland's annual (now) Fright Nights at the park. Several rides of course, are open, including our
beloved Coaster - but in the dark. Or lit up, like most of the flats, with a LOT of "fog" snaking through
the walkways of Playland.
It also had 6 (?) Haunt Houses. I forget their names. But - each house or walk-through had a minimum
of 1-1/2 hours' wait! And their newly inducted Fastpass system? (It cost $30 above the gen.entrance fee)
Well, either nobody wanted to pay that much, hadn't heard about it, or... but there was no one in any of the
Haunt Houses FastPass lines!
And stupidly, and from all that touring with TPR (duh), I would have thought that paying the upcharge would
easily decrease my wait times to these things. And - it would have, I found out! But I didn't get it, boo hoo.
So I didn't wait for any of the Haunts. And the Coaster? Didn't ride it as there were Really Scary HUGE
mobs in line for it.
And honestly, i was so jealous of all the big parks in the US who have SPACE to move people around, etc.
Our space was so tight and 'rectangular' it was really a mob scene to me, one of the better nights at
Playland during the PNE, I felt. And I didn't like that. Walking around, was like walking with a herd.
So instead, I just took pix of what I wanted to take pix of, lol! I will (maybe) do it again next year, but
with the Fast Pass, if they do it again. Unfortunately, now that a lot of the GP has seen the pro of
doing the Pass... but then who knows? People will still be cheap if they want to be.
Here's what I took. Enjoy.
