Busch Gardens Bash looks like it was a great event. I will definitely have to make sure I can stay an extra day for it next year@!

The event was awesome. And I really enjoyed HOS that night. I liked how aggressive how some of the talent was in the mazes, especially the Vampire Casino. They didn't touch you, but had no problem getting right up in your face and threatening you with weapons and stuff. Seemed like a lot of the talent in the mazes were really working hard to get scares, and I appreciated it. The one maze that I thought was really lacking in this was the Zombie Mortuary, especially after the first couple of rooms. Like you, I thought it was easily the weakest of the night.

^BGW has a similar "funeral parlor" room in one of their mazes (13) that uses one of the same scare tactics (and does it a little better).

I thought I'd covered all the Halloween events, but as I went through my photos, I discovered one glaring omission--Old Town! Yes, Old Town does have a "haunt," of sorts--as if the place wasn't scary enough the rest of the year.

To be honest, we didn't actually attend this event. Old Town was just a credit-whoring stop after our day at Legoland Florida (more on that later), and we left before it began. Some of us (mostly just myself and Larry, actually) were planning to check out the year-round "Haunted Grimm House," based on the assumption that it would be open that day. Well, it us open during the day on Saturday; ufortunately, we were there on a Friday. D'oh!

Such is life. I thought I'd share the terror of an hour at Old Town with you, anyway . . . if your heart can stand it!

That Old Town update was truly the scariest of all of your Haunt updates so far!

Damn you, Grimm House! Damn you all to Hell!

I keep saying I'm going to check out Nightmare Mansion in Virginia Beach, too--but no one I'm with ever wants to go.

I have never been to Old Town. Last time I was in Florida I came in at night and saw some lights not far from my hotel. Never had a chance to check them out and didn't know what it was until I was leaving and the taxi drove right by it. I could have walked there and picked up a credit and did the Grimm House! I need to do better research on whats around when I travel on business.
