A spooky night...dun dun duh

Even the picture is eerie, I blame it on the fog machine.
Saturday night we went with our friends to Kings Island, which during the fall months turns into Halloween Haunt. Halloween Haunt is a combination of rides and haunted houses, sounds awesome right? The weather forecast wasn't great, but we decided to go anyway because doesn't the threat of a thunder storm make haunted things even more thrilling? We rode a ride or two, got food and our favorite smurf ice cream and then the rain drops began to fall. Thankfully it was 70 degrees and thankfully our amazing friends came prepared with ponchos so we did not let that stop us. We rode rides in the rain, walked through haunted houses in the rain and went home with our socks and shoes soaking wet. We could have been bummed out that it was raining on our halloween parade, but it just added to the fun for us. What a fun and eerie night with some of our favorite people in the world.
Sidenote:: Drew is obsessed with Halloween and is not easily frightened. Thankfully I had Alison to hold hands with while walking through the haunted houses because Drew was always about 10 feet ahead of us. Then he goes and poses with this creepy thing...What did I marry in to?? Haha.
Get spooked at Halloween Haunt...checking that one off the bucket list!

What a fun night... except that Eric and I hate anything haunted! Ha ha! But I'm glad you guys had fun, despite the rain :)
What is smurf ice cream?

Becky said...

I'm glad you guys had a good time despite the weather! I'm afraid of all the haunted halloween stuff so I probably would have stuck to the food and games haha.

Ashley said...

Haha I always need someone to hold hands with in haunted houses too. My husband isn't allowed to wonder 10 feet ahead, LOL! Sounds like you guys had a great time!

That photo with Drew and that scary thing is hilarious. I, too, would like to know what Smurf ice cream is... looks like fun! I want to try to get to a haunted house this year with Brian.

I have a hard time going near anything haunted... but you've made it sound a little adventurous (lol) ;D

Love love love this. It has been a LONG time since I've gone to Halloween Haunt, but I always make it a point to get to at least one haunted house or trail. Let's be real - the blue ice cream is enough to get me to King's Island by itself. Also, I SPY THE WALKING DEAD SHIRT. Excellent.

I'm such a scaredy cat - I wouldn't be able to do something like that! I went one year to the haunted walk with some of my students and I screamed and cried the whole time pretty much!

I love the pics!

Betty said...

Ooh I am definitely a wimp when it comes to scary stuff, haha! But this sounds like fun! Well, maybe not the haunted houses as much, but at least the night time rides! :) Glad you guys enjoyed it! Looks like Drew had a blast! ;)
