Title: 2012 Planning
Post by: packbacker on September 17, 2012, 05:31:32 PM
Plans to attend Blackout in NYC bombed due to some financial issues so we'll be staying local-ish this year.  That being said we have a full itinerary.  Always subject to change due to weather/work/whatever but here is the 2012 work in progress.  Suggestions or recommendations welcome on haunts to add/skip or how to hit more on a night's journey.....


9/28  Hacker House
10/5  Haunted Pyramids +/- Horror Fields, Terror By the Creek, Lake Hickory Haunts (realistically 2-3...though I've never done a 4 haunt night).
10/12  Midway Wicked Woods and Camp Fear
10/13  The Slaughterhouse Horror Experience and Darkside Haunted Estates
10/19  Boogerwoods +/- Silver Valley Trail Nightmares
10/20  SC Fear Farm, Campground Massacre, and Haunted Mill (not sure we'll be able to fit in all 3....but gonna try)
10/25  Mountain of Terror and Zombie Outpost
10/26  Castle of Horror and Nightmare on Scales Street
10/28  Woods of Terror  and Xtreme Fear
10/30 Spookywoods


Gonna try and work in newbie Wicked Whimsies, Forbidden Forest,  and the Hillside Horror.  Open to other suggestions....especially in the Triangle area to partner with a visit to the Slaughterhouse...  Would love to hit 20 this year!

i need a drink after reading all that, wow!  i would say you are planning ahead.  have a wedding to attend this weekend, since i'm one of the "planners" my life its total chaos right now. but come sunday, I'm putting this HH puzzle together on paper.  can't wait to set our schedule.  wish we could hit 20, that is a marathon dude!  i tried to get the couple to get married on halloween, but it's not their style, now i'm thrilled to get their show wrapped up and celebrated in sept, so I can reclaim myself in october!!!!!!

Packbacker that is a HUGE schedule!!!  Just so you know I plan to be tagging along with you to each and every one of them!!!!!  I'm excited and terrified all at the same time!!!!

That sounds like a great schedule! We might like to tag along on a couple of trips too.

I've found you have to seriously plan ahead when you work weekends, have football games out of town, and deal with other people's work schedules.  If you wing it things don't go as well.  I'm sure we will alter this a bit but that schedule accounts for all home football games in October and as of now three of our work schedules.  You can play it by ear when it's local but when you're looking at 2+hr one way drives that takes a bit of plannin'!

Would love to have people tag along- our group ranges from 2 to 6 generally.  The more the merrier!

As in past years I (or another board member) I'm sure will post a "Where are you going this week?" thread.  If you want to join our outing that week just send me a PM and I'll give you details.

Post by: Cousin Levi Slaughter on September 18, 2012, 07:26:01 PM
I though I would post my schedule also packbacker..

10-29    Hacker House
10-5     prob no where  due to our local harvest parade on  the morning of 10-6
10-6   local harvest parade then our cookout at the slaughter house
10-12  Slaughter house
10-13  Slaughter house
10-19  Slaughter house
10-20  Slaughter house
10-26  Slaughter house
10-27  Slaughter house
10-31  Slaughter house

I REALLY LIKE THE SLAUGHTER HOUSE !

Really though the way the weekends fall this year just plains sucks for me.. I  "Usually"  can hit 6 to 8 haunts before we open, this year it looks like it might be the Hacker house only... I WISH I could hit some of those other haunts on your list....


Title: Re: 2012 Planning
Post by: Radiant_Red on September 19, 2012, 11:56:01 PM
I don't have a schedule set in stone yet....but definitely going to Hacker House, Midway Wicked Woods, Xtreme fear, Spookywoods and hopefully several more. Just reading everything on the boards is making me sooo excited for this season. Sounds like some crazy good times are ahead.


Title: Re: 2012 Planning

10/13-  Wicked Woods
Week of 10/15-10/19-  X-treme Fear
10/20-  Spookywoods
10/27-  Universal Studios Horror Nights Orlando

*  Does anyone have any suggestions on anything?  Places I should go that are not listed, or any reviews of Universal would be helpful too.  Thanks!


Title: Re: 2012 Planning
Post by: ngbomb2872 on September 23, 2012, 08:18:25 PM
Thanks so much for your reply.  I have been to Scarrowinds every year like the past 5 few years.  Its always fun, but with everything else I have planned it may not fit.  I decided to go to Universal because I have been talking about going for years, I can actually aford it this year and I also love the Walking Dead.  How is the Netherlands?  It sounds awesome from what I've heard.  That should be a fun trip.

I am going to try to make it to at least 10 events. It all depends on how much  the Man [my job] is going to try to oppress me in October. Down with the man. The days of Oppression are over evil man.

I need a smiley that waves...HI EVERYONE!! 

Yeah, so I've been MIA and super busy!  I just wanted to pop in and say HAPPY HAUNTING!  I'm sad I won't be getting to too many haunts this years, but I did go to Woods of Terror by myself last Saturday.  My daughter is working there this season, so I had to go see her  ;D

Other than that, the only plans are:

10/5: Hacker House
10/12: Xtreme Fear

I hope to get to Midway either this Saturday or next while my other daughter is home from college.  I was supposed to go to Campground Massacre with a couple of friends last weekend, but they chickened out because of some rain.  Oh well.

The truth of the matter is that I don't scare very easily.  I actually love haunts so much because I'm constantly looking for the ones that can make me jump.

Hi Dianna,
I noticed Oct. 31, is open on your calendar...
Halloween is a special time for Hacker House.
The monsters and characters dress in their best Halloween costume and want to trick-or-treat.
Since we really can't let them out on an unsuspecting population*, they'll play with whomever wanders into their abodes.
Yes, we celebrate Halloween at Hacker House!
And, it's... well... unique.
Happy Boos,
-Prof.
*until Dec. 21

Hadn't planned on it, but tell me the time and I might come meet up with you all.  I'll be going it alone, so it'd be cool to go with like-minded people rather than random idiots.

Glad that your planning on making the trip down to see us Sat. Hope the weather is good & you enjoy the show, AFTER you go through the trail & Murder ride, tell   " Sheriff Bill"   that you want to see me. I love meeting you guys from the forum.

Hmmmmm.  I pretty much do go through them blindfolded!  I close my eyes and cover my ears.   It's the only defense I have against these monsters, clowns, crazy people in blue suits, and all the other creatures roaming around at these haunts!  What I would NEVER do is go through by myself!  Absolutely NO way!!!!!!

Diana, you make think you're a pro now, but believe me when I say that Halloween brings out the worst in the monsters at Hacker House.  I would definitely suggest you be the fine group to go through that night, if you can wait that long.  A nice, all-Frightseekers group to close out Halloween night would make the Hackers very, VERY happy...

Well Slappy on a "normal" night at a "normal" haunt I am doing much better.  Hacker house may be a different story! I know I am going to regret saying this but tell me what time to be there and that's when I'll show up!
Just be nice :)

Wow, you are getting brave... or stupid?

Anyhow, I'd say get there around 10:45, the ticket booth closes at 11:00.  That way, we can make sure you'll be the last group through, and that you'll get the full VIP treatment.
