Horror nights discussion number 2 (my own experience)
October 1, 2011 4:26pm CST
In my previous discussion I described the horror nights that take place at a castle in my area. Tonight I visited the place with my husband. It was a lot of fun. Inside the building there were 5 different mazes and outside there a maze called "the swamp". The first maze that we visited was called "The prison" and it was full of scary prisoners and guards. The next two mazes were "The tree" and "Knightmare". "The tree" was like a big forest full narrow bridges and scary creatures hidden in the dark. One of them tried to grab my feet when we were walking through the maze, he was lying on the ground behind a curtain and I got a shock because I hadn't seen him at all "Knightmare" was a medieval maze with a torture chamber. My favourite maze was "Psycho custody" which was a house with a mentally ill family. When we entered the maze the guard locked the entrace, so we were trapped inside the building with a crazy killer. As we walked from room to room we met the different members of the family who were kept as prisoners inside the house, one of the them had been killed, but there was no sight of the killer. The most scary maze was "Mystery place", it was completely dark inside the room, we couldn't see where we were going, and we had to use our hands to find the right the way. The actors where hiding in the dark, we couldn't see them but we could feel their breath and we could hear them laugh. It was a scary feeling to walk around in the dark because we never knew what we were going to find behind the next corner "The swamp" was an outdoor maze, there weren't a lot of actors hiding in there, but it was a still a bit scary to walk around in there because it was very dark. What do think about the mazes that I described? Did you ever visit a scary maze? What was the theme and did you enjoy it?

nah, i am easily gets scared with those kinds of stuff. It is not my kind of thing. I really get to have nightmares at night if I force myself to go to such places. Even with movies, I am not fond of watching horror movies as I think about it a lot after a while. It really makes me so scared that I don't usually get to sleep. I also scream a lot which makes it so embarrassing for people that I am with. But I guess, you, on the other hand, find these stuff really fun. I envy you because you get to do stuff like these with my husband while I, on the other hand, just wait outside hoping that they would finish fast. LOL.

If you get scared easily the horror night would be a bad place to visit, because the actors are pretty good at shocking and scaring the visitors when they suddenly jump out in front of you and try to grab you. The surprice is a big part of it and they tend to show up when you least expect it I had fun in the mazes, but the completely dark maze was especially scary. I was afraid to walk through that place because I had no idea what was waiting for me in the dark...

Sounds fun! Some friends of my are planning to do something similar for a Halloween party that I'm helping to organsie, so this has given me a few ideas. I went into something similar at a theme park in Spain. What scared me most was how when you walked into a different was the flooring was either at a different level so you'd fall or was made of something different, ie stone flooring turned to sand. It really made you loose your barings and really added to the whole atmosphere of the place.

That theme park sounds like an interesting place to visit. It reminds of a place that I once visited. There was a big hole in the ground and the hole was covered by transparent glass. When we walked on the glass and it felt like we were falling into the hole. I knew that it was an illusion and that I wasn't going to fall, but it was still a very strange feeling to walk on the glass, and I just wanted to get away from the hole as fast as possible
