A Spooky World New England Review

‘Twas a dark and dreary night… You know the kind where you could see your breath for seconds before the cold rain beat it down.

Any other time of year and I would shut myself inside and watch reruns of Gilmore girls but it’s October. October, halloween, leaves changing, and scaring myself silly but not really. It’s also where I start mourning the loss of sunlight and warmth for the next 6-8 months. Ugh.

But in the mean time, it’s October and the month of my favorite holiday, Halloween. Did I mention Orange is one my favorite colors?

So when blog and tweet Boston did an event at Spooky World, I signed myself and Tony up unexpectedly. You see, I get scared easily, so while I love, pumpkins, candy, and dressing up for Halloween, I avoid other more bumpy things. I watched the first Saw movie with hands in front of my eyes the whole time and I think that was the last scary movie I watched.

However, after 4 or more years of avoiding scary movies and haunted houses it was time to face my fears. Spooky world on a cold wet night seemed to be the perfect frightful experience.

Spooky world takes place seasonally at Mel’s Funway Park in Litchfield, New England. It’s about an hour drive north of Boston. As bloggers we got VIP passes that allowed us to get ahead of the lines. Even on a wet night, where attendance was relatively low, I loved being instantly in the front.  Plus I really hate queuing as it makes me super anxious and claustrophobic! And everyone that attended got a poncho to help with the rain.

Dark, cold, wet, and the mood was set.

There’s 5 haunted attractions and we started with the 3D horror house…

Neon paint and 3D glasses we set out.. things jumped out, and things glowed and flickered and ended with a spinning room that really left me dizzy. A good and short little scare. I survived!

The next stop was the Carnage. A haunted, outdoor junkyard filled with trucks and cars to navigate your way to freedom. To be honest, this was my least favorite. The concept was interesting but homeless bums and junky sales people don’t scare me too much.

Next up was Bringham Manor

A haunted house with every horror, natural and supernatural imagined to scare you. This was my second favorite one. I didn’t take photos inside because I think you should all come out and experience it yourself. I don’t want to ruin any surprises.

After three haunted houses we decided it was time for a break. Screaming makes you hungry!

There was a firepit going and a beer/dancing area to get your freaky party on. However, my mind was on the food. The usual concession stands from fried dough, fried chicken, candy apply, and hot chocolate was there. But my eyes are always on one thing.

Yes, I visit attractions for one purpose at times and a seasonal turkey legs is all I want.

After feeding, drinking and warming we continued with our night. Next up:

Ravenclaw is your usual haunted scary walk in a cemetery. Crypts, ghosts, ghouls, zombies immediately try to befriend you.

And final stop was called the Colony. My favorite out of the five. And where I fully excelled my screaming skills. It was set in the woods and was a mix of scary witch woods style walks with chain saws, and cabins. It was probably the longest attraction as well. Every time I thought we were done, I found something new to scream at.

Overall, we had a blast at Spooky World and if you love Halloween fun, check it out!

 

QOTD – Do you like to be scared? What are your favorite Halloween things to do?

  1. Sounds cool!

    I’m a wimp when it comes to being scared.

    Living on the North Shore in the city next to Salem for most of my life – I just associate October with crazy traffic.

    I don’t get trick or treaters at my South Shore condo, so I don’t do much to celebrate Halloween.

  2. Weird document offer the important points for Air Max Shoes that just a couple of consumers Know.
