Time for another weekend of haunting! Go support your local attractions.
has anyone done this Kings Dominion spook fest?
i am interested in how scary it is....? and whether the whole park is scarified? (or whether they have just set up some extra haunted houses?)
i am considering bring my 6, 8 and 10 year old daughters there... but I KNOW that 6 and 8 "dont want no scary crap" and would only enjoy it if there is also some non-scary stuff to keep them happy as well...
i'm considering going to the paxton manor haunt in leesburg. i was choosing between paxton manor and markoffs haunted forest last year and went to the haunted forest so maybe i'll go to the manor this year.
if somone who has been to both could let me know which one is better that would be great. The Haunted Forest was awesome last year.
oh yea, apparently the manor in leesburg is actually haunted to that adds to the creep factor
scared me ****less last night

Markoff's has more to do as far as games/concessions,etc, but Paxton Manor will probably be a shorter wait. It was basically empty when I went there last weekend. Both of them have top-notch haunts though, so you can't lose.
I was supposed to go to Markoff's this weekend but that fell through. May just go to Darkwood or Haunted Hollow instead.
Went to the Haunted Forest last night (in the rain and everything) and it was awesome! We did both trails, but we did trail 2 first and it was hands down the better trail. The first trail had an awesome fog and cemetery prop set up though. The chainsaw guys did an awesome job, especially at the end. If you live close, go check it out tonight or tomorrow!
My house is haunted with the spririts of the living, and the memories of the departed loved ones they carry.
We have "Scarowinds" (Carowinds) here in the Charlotte area. I don't get into that kind of stuff, but I-77 has been backed up every weekend towards their exit.

Kicked off the season this weekend.
New warehouse haunt in Bethesda...can't remember what it was called. Basically it was $30 for a sort of mediocre experience. Lots of growling zombies walking around, and not enough props, and the scares were a little too predictable. We were underwhelmed. I feel like this one will get better in the coming years, but right now if you're a snob like me, it's not worth the cost of admission.
Crumland farms in Frederick county: Pretty cool haunt split into 3 parts. There was a corn maze, a barn, and a hayride. Good costumes, good actors, nice props. Probably my biggest gripe with this one was that it was a little disorganized. We walked around for like 15 minutes before we found the corn maze. The concessions smelled good.
Nightmare Screamplex in Boyds, MD: It's kinda like a mini Markoff's. Like the last one, it was a little disorganized and there wasn't enough signage leading to the haunt, or enough signs telling you where to go once you were there. There was a trail, a corn field, and an indoor segment at the end. The trail was very dimly lit (a good thing in my book) and there were some genuine scares. Unfortunately the people in front of us were a little too scared, they they just stood there and waited for my group to catch up...can't stand that. The actors were very good, and the props were better than I was expecting. Probably took a good 40 minutes to get through all 3 haunts, which are lined up in succession. Not the best haunt I've been to, but still a really good time.
