Happy Halloween everyone! I'm spending my halloween this year completely different- I'm staying in. My boyfriend has to work; I'm going to start a medical procedure in six days so I need to conserve on cash; I didn't complete my brilliantly planned costume; my sister & brother-in-law are at a wedding in the Dominician Republic so I'm puppy sitting for them. All the equation to stay in & hand out treats to the kiddies in costume.
I did do the annual haunted house tour. This year Juliet suggested that we do sister houses. The 13th Floor is connected to the Undead then for a discounted price you can also go down the street to get into the Asylum & Zombieland. Haunted houses are not your neighborhood firemen productions that we grew up with anymore. They are big business & with them big price tags. $42 for the combo but when you show up the wait in the line is over 2 hrs so ofcourse you purchase the upgrade to the VIP line. It was partially worth it; Undead was first & had a lot of actors, more then I've seen before. Zombieland & Asylum were a disappointment, just a tradition haunt. 13th Floor though was a treat. First an elevator to an attic walk with yetis & other huge anamitronics but the best were seeing two phanamechnics that I've always wanted to see.
The next was a vortex tube. A cylinder that you walk through with random lights spinning while you go up a ramp. By the end of the ramp your balance is off & you spend another 15 mins walking outside through the haunt feeling off balance. I got my instructions from one of my favorite haunt websites. http://www.instructables.com/id/Vortex-Tunnel-Halloween-attraction/
