I want to tell you it was amazing, but I honestly think they went pretty overboard. There wasn’t an area you could get to without going through a haunted zone, and most involved being chased by zombies. Most was in good fun, but many were pretty aggressive and disturbing. I had one huge guy get up in my face and would not stop touching me. I pretty fervently told him no, and he kept doing it. My inner-feminist couldn’t get past the play on rape culture, and how disturbing it is to have a creepy guy dressed as a zombie isolating you specifically. I’ve never seen Jacob get so upset, but I’m glad he came to my defense!
We decided after a few hour-long waits for rides and the harassment incident, that we were good with only a few rides. I’d say if you’re a haunted house fan this is so for you! If you are like us and could pass, I’d wait until after the season.
But on the upside- roller coasters! And they are even more thrilling at night!
I also got to introduce Jacob to the funnel cake. He’s never been able to gain weight, and when he asked what a funnel cake is, I think I realized why! I made sure the s’mores cake happened for him. We ended the night with this amusement park treat, and it was a great way to make the date a positive memory!
