We can finally read the sign and see the entrance! Progress!
First of all, we didn't expect there to be as huge a line as there was. I didn't actually time it (it was dark, I couldn't see my watch), but I think our wait was a good 10-20 minutes long. Also, the temperature was above freezing, but it was also kinda windy which made it pretty chilly. I'll admit that my feet, legs, and arms were quite cold after standing there for only a couple minutes. I saw a lot of adults and children dressed only in hoodies and I don't know how they were surviving. I was really happy I decided to wear my winter coat, touque, scarf, and mittens. They were life-saving.
Pitiful moon shot. Wuh wuhhhh.
The great thing about waiting was taking in the night sky. I didn't realize how much I missed seeing it until that night. The moon was at a perfect crescent and the sky was crystal clear. It was well worth the wait just to be able to see the stars again. I really miss that in the city. City people don't understand the true meaning of darkness, and I think that's a shame.
[inside the haunted house there were strange vignettes we didn't have time to fully appreciate]
Why do I have to go first this whole time?! You're the husband!Anyway, we definitely felt like we got a good scare for our buck, so I'd recommend anyone going if they haven't before. It's on this week starting Wednesday night. I'm sure it's going to be busier since this is halloween week, so if you plan on going, take that (and the weather!) into consideration.
