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!

I'm sure that this would've been the highlight of the week. Of course, some say that every night, year-round is a haunt when you're in Old Town.
01.jpg
We can scarce contain our excitement.
02.jpg
The Haunted Grimm House mocks us with eerie silence--and locked doors.
03.jpg
Oh, really? Alas, we shall never know. Well, not this year, anyway.
04.jpg
OK, where does this rating come from? Trip Advisor? Boy's Life? Wino Quarterly? Bigguns Magazine? Looks like I won't be finding out for myself whether or not this claim is valid.

"Come back at 6:00 pal. Then I'll scare the hell outta ya. That's a promise."
06.jpg
My god! A door that swings out! The horror . . . the horror . . .
07.jpg
Apparently nothing happens before 6:00 pm, either.
08.jpg
"We're closed, fella. The skeleton outside shoulda told ya."
10.jpg
"That's OK, mon! Maybe some of my quality merchandise can cheer you up!"
11.jpg
This reminds me of someone, but who?
12.jpg
Ah, what adoring wife wouldn't appreciate the subtle wit employed here, eh?
13.jpg
I'm pretty sure I saw one of these figurines in Versailles--Ohio, that is.
14.jpg
"If you walk outta that store with any of that crap, I swear to god that I will drop and swallow your head!"
15.jpg
Perhaps an Old Town cruise is what I need.
16.jpg
Or perhaps not.
17.jpg
Well, I can always snag an Index picture of the "Coaster Formerly Known as Galaxy Spin" for Larry.

This bench needs to get over itself.
19.jpg
Well, at least "Life Is Great" at the Fun Spot.
20.jpg
Right, William?
21.jpg
Is life still great on the "Neck Snapper Kiddie Coaster"?
22.jpg
Don't worry, gents. Your brains will realign themselves after the ride is over.

"Ahoy! Be ye stayin' fer our Halloween event? No? Then get out, sez I!" That's it for Old Town. We'll get to Legoland and some random Disney stuff later.

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.
