Are you someone who loves to be scared? From horror movies to haunted houses, this time of year you don’t have to look far to find fear-inducing activities.
The first I visited a Haunted house was October 2009, when we were stationed in Fort Gordon, Georgia. We had learned about a popular Haunted House in the area called Nightmare Plantation. I was 4-5 months pregnant and wore flip-flops or flats as I remember. The pregnancy wasn’t an issue, but I quickly learned my husband was not a fan of how slow I was with those shoes and at one point, I even lost a shoe and had to retrace my steps to find it. Not something I will repeat in the event of a Zombie Apocalypse.
In the past few years we have attended a local haunted house my husband had heard about near the new home. Creepy Hollow Haunted House in Rosharon, Texas. To say it was amazing is an understatement. Our first year we attended was opening weekend, and we got there a little before 8 p.m. There were characters everywhere, zombies, monsters, creepy clowns and more!
There were 2 haunted houses, a haunted woods (Dark Woods), a Freak Show, Mind Reader Show, and a mini museum, as well as a Dark Alley filled with all sorts of activities. We definitely had a night filled with fear-inducing activities. They even have an Escape Room.
We ended up doing the haunted houses and woods the first year with another, younger couple. My husband led the first time with the two girls in the middle and the younger man in the back, then we did the haunted woods last and they led. Let me tell you, the back is so much different than the front. It was way more intense because you really couldn’t see past the people in front of you and (often times) there were Zombies, monsters, etc chasing you. So much fun!
I don’t want to give too much way, but one Haunted House makes you choose a “wet or dry option”, the Dark Woods may in include a lot of snake sounds and the Freak Show certainly includes fire! You might even make a new friend …
If you are in the area, I definitely recommend visiting Creepy Hollow to get your scare on! If not and you like to be scared or get your adrenaline going, try looking for hunted houses near you. As a closing disclaimer, we know what our son’s limits are, and scary is not even on the chart so we don’t even mention these things to him. I highly suggest that you easy your child(ren) into these types of things before jumping right in. I would never suggest making your child doing something that they are not comfortable with.
