Anticipation, Storm Builds

Posted in Preludes and Nocturnes with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 5, 2012 by bluefall8

It’s overcast and rainy in many parts of Metro Detroit and the weather will definitely have an effect on our outing. I called the fine folks at Slaughter House Adventure just moments ago and they confirmed that both the Haunted Corn Maze and the Blood Bath & Beyond Hayride have been shut down due to the rain. That is disappointing but sometimes you’re left with nothing else to do but forge ahead, and that’s precisely what John and I will do. On the bright side everything is currently open at Erwin Orchards and we’ve witnessed adverse weather conditions actually enhance our experience at a haunted attraction, perhaps the best example of this comes from our 2009 Devil’s Night trip to the Haunted Farm of Terror in Lenox Township. And who knows, there’s always a chance that the weather will clear and we’ll experience the outdoor attractions after all! Happy Haunting!

Updated 2012 Haunt Schedule

Listed below are various hypothetical trips, I’ve broken them up into two categories — main (the top list) and extra (the bottom list). I’m open to suggestions of course, but essentially the main category reflects what I feel are the top trips and therefore should be given priority over those in the extra category. Beginning Friday, September 28 through the end of October there are five weekends for haunting, typically we do a big trip on Devil’s Night or Halloween as well — so realistically that’s at least six nights out. There is also the possibility of hitting haunts twice in a week, say Thursday/Friday or Friday/Saturday, which is something we did last year on a couple of occasions. Anyway you slice it, October will be packed with haunted fun! Keep in mind that this list is not meant to be chronological  — I will determine dates for each trip once we coordinate schedules. Also, I’m still looking to find a third haunt on a few of these nights so if anybody has a suggestion make it know.

MAIN

#1: Erwin’s Orchards (South Lyon), Slaughter House (Fowlerville), A Nightmare on Elm Road (Webberville)

#2: Haunted School House and Laboratory (Akron, OH), Bloodview (Broadview Heights, OH)

#3: House of Fear (Hazel Park), Deadly Intentions (Warren), Blake’s Farms (Aramada)

#4: Exit 13 (Mt. Morris), Sinister (Utica)
