Wordful Wednesday - Scarefest

Me and Shelby - a road trip selfie
 
Last Friday I went with my oldest daughter and husband, along with a couple co-workers, to Scarefest in St. Louis.  It's a total of three haunted houses in one area; we went to two.
Look, Shelby, I found you a new man!
 
I had such high hopes, especially considering they were considered some of the scariest in the area.  The actual experience of hanging with a great group was fun, but the haunted houses left much to be desired.
 
The Darkness was amazing to look at, with its props and animatronics.  But the scare factor was minimal.  The Abyss was in an actual cavern.  It had so much potential but was way too dark.  So it was basically thirty minutes of walking in a darkened maze.
Now that I've been to Scarefest, I can cross it off my bucket list.  Been there, done that, don't need to do it again.

Bummer about it not living up to your expectations but I'm glad you still had a good time. The company you keep can make all the difference in situations like that!

I hate being scared. I never been to a haunted house or even seen Jaws. But I'm glad that you were able to mark it off of your list! It's not on mine. :)

bummer it wasn't that scary. One haunted house I went thru years ago, I laughed the entire time. IDK why, i just did. Another gal not in our group had a death grip on my sweater the whole time thru, maybe thats why I was laughing?
