- I’m the biggest scared cat in the world. I can’t watch a horror- or psychothriller movie without having my hands or a pillow in front of my face – I can’t even watch the trailer! BUT it’s Halloween season – and it’s really a big deal here in the US. You can find Halloween stuff everywhere and especially for adults there are a lot of costumes – even more than for kids. We have a really huge amusement park just 5 minutes from where we live and there was this special event – called Halloween Haunt! And THIS event was so scarily intense and real!! I was literally freaking out, almost crying (I’m not joking!) I really don’t understand how people can bring their 7 years old kids to this event – or even their babies!
They had 11 “scary haunted houses”, where you could walk through in small groups! The first “horror-attraction” was called “Corn Stalkers”and I was more or less relaxed because I didn’t know what to expect – “It can’t be that bad, when parents come here with their children to have fun – I mean, it’s a fun park, so it’s supposed to be fun! Right?” And I was soooo wrong. The minute I stepped into that first house I knew that I won’t have much fun tonight. Haha. They had a lot of small rooms (where you had to walk through) with freaky people in even more freaky and scary costumes – and they looked SO real! I felt like I was in my own horror movie which was never going to end. But I could’t just close my eyes to get through it. I had to move on – with my hands in front of my eyes and Marks arm as a human shield. That must sound so crazy but it was really intense – there was flesh hanging from the ceiling, people jumping in front of you out of the dark, sick and crazy people wondering around (like in a mental institution) and it was so hard for me to get through all that craziness (even though I knew it’s just theater – btw they had brilliant actors!). They were screaming at you, jumping around and they really scared the shit out of me. I was so glad when we got out of this first attraction – 1 down BUT still 10 to go! I was sweating all the time! The next attraction was called “Urgent Scare” – genius name! And even more freaky genius when we finally got into that house. This was like a REAL psych ward – insane people, people with amputated arms and legs, a lot of body parts lying around and it was so scary. I didn’t know if I should laugh or cry. It was a crazy experience – hopefully a once in a lifetime experience for me! Haha. And there were so much more attractions – like “Chambers Of Horror”, “Grave Walkers”, “CarnEvil” and “Blackout”. I was very happy when we got home after this crazy first Halloween-evening at Dorney Park! And for the record: I didn’t do all attractions!
- Fortunately, we also did some fun Halloween-things like PUMPKIN CARVING – Woooop!! It was my first time and I had so much fun. I didn’t know and I couldn’t imagine that pumpkin carving is way more work than it actually looks like! Check out our homemade crazy and scary pumpkins in this YouTube video!
- Also we went to that funny event called “Lehigh Valley Zombies”. We were driving around on a truck with a small group of people to hunt zombies (…to safe the world! HAHA). It was a kind of “Paint Ball Zombie Shooting” – sounds super weird and random AND it probably is: We had a lot of fun though!
