Lagoon Frightmares 2015

Lagoon is one of my favorite theme parks ever. This is my fourth time going with Summer in less than two years. Our first time together at Frightmares. It was awesome. This year they went over the top, by dressing the park with lot of Halloween decor. Pumpkins, lights, shows, fog machines, bales of hay, and 7 seasonal haunted attractions. In my whole life, I've NEVER seen Lagoon 1/3 this busy. The parking lot was completely full, and the parking overlow was completely filled as well. Normally a ride such as the Terror Ride, would be a 3-minute line. We waited almost an hour to enter. The lines for everything were unbearable. We only went on a few rides. The single-rider lines helped and also the Time Warp fast pass. The Time Warp fast pass was an additional $15, which seemed outrageous since tickets were already very expensive. But, the lines were soooo ridiculously long, and time was limited. It was a trade off between waiting in a 2-hour line (yes they were going that slow), or paying more, and getting almost immediate access to the 4 haunted houses. Some people looked indignant as we strolled to the front and got immediate access. But, it was worth it. It was a great experience and we loved all four of the haunted houses, and the Haunted Pioneer Village.

I was fried on the electric chair and Summer became a Carnival attraction

Our Time Warp passes, which allowed us 5 entries into the 4 haunted houses. On the right is one of them.

Some spooky stuff was going down in Pioneer Village! Ghosts, killer dogs, and skeletons!

The dead were rising from their graves! Here is the line for the Terror Ride!

The parking had a great view of the Cannibal. Summer was arrested, we got to see snakes!

Creepy mother, cannibal cauldron, Summer and the werewolf lie in wait of prey.

Parking was unbearable, we were out in the boonies.

Summer loves giant spiders!

Fear Factory 2015

This haunted house is named's Top Ten Haunted Attractions in the USA for 2015. Fear Factory was the home of old an old 1800's factory and it boasts haunting of real ghosts. It opened in 2010 as a scare attraction, and this is my third time going. It has improved every time. This has by far been the best year. It was very immersive and large. It seemed longer than last time. Many things were familiar. We had a lot of fun, and I'd recommend this to anybody. It drew the biggest crowd I've ever seen, even on a weekend. We waited in line for almost 90 minutes. They even had some new features that they didn't have before such as a bungee jump, a zipline, and a zombie laser tag. We might try those later.

The Fear Factory used to have bands perform on a stage, and my band, Eighth Day, performed in 2013.
Tall scarers and zombies entering the room!

Nightmare on 13th Haunted House

For more information about this haunted house and others in the area, check out my other article here! They're celebrating 25 years. They have always done a good job, and this year was no exception. This was my little brother's first time to  a real haunted house and he was very brave and he had a good time! This is one of my family favorite traditions. We hope to go to more in the area soon!

They took this awesome picture of us

There were some attractions outside! It was lots of fun. This scary clown took Linsey's hat.
