as I mentioned in my previous blog post my Hustband and I went to Tulley’s Shocktober Fest Scream Park on Friday night to celebrate Halloween. We’ve been looking forward to going for so long, and the day had finally arrived.
During the day we dressed up, me as Deadly Dorothy and Mark was Dr Death. I really enjoyed creating our Zombie look make over (here’s my tutorrial on how to create the Deadly Dorothy look http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gPmSCCwnlkQ) After setting off with plenty of time to spare, we were hit by horrendous Friday night traffic, and having to enterntain ourselves by spooking passing cars (with our deadly looks :-)) It took us nearly 4 hours to get there, but we didn’t let that dampen our spirits!
When we finally made it, we were greeted by their lovely PR Kylee (my newly found friend) who very kindly upgraded our tickets to VIP. Thanks again for that! It was really nice to finally meet her after tweeting for so long 🙂
Then we were introduced to Tulley’s top photographer Stephen who was kind enough to take some superb pictures of us with two of Tulleys most ferocious creatures from the Cellar Haunted House attraction. He commanded them not to bite, lucky for us!
We survived all the Haunts but only just, after nearly getting beheaded by a chainsaw weilding lunatic in WoodShock Rottin’ Since ’69 attraction.
We loved all the haunts but particularly enjoyed the Haunted Hayride; a tractor Ride through a corn trail with Evil Witches, Ghouls and Zombies jumping out at us, and getting on the tractor to attack. It was really jumpy, and scary but a lot of fun.
The actors and entertainers deserve particular credit as they were oustanding.
We grabbed a bite to eat (don’t worry it wasn’t human flesh lol) while listening to the live band who were very entertaining, and even had a litle dance.
Lastly we went to the Aftershock Bar, to enjoyed a few creepy cocktails before heading back.
However one final fright awaited us, when we got to the car and found it sunk in the mud! We waited patiently for our turn to be rescued by the tractor, when thankfully three good samaritans saved the day, and helped us push our car out the mud.
Thanks so much to the organisers for putting on a Frightastic Event, we can’t wait to come back next year!
