13 OCT 2004 Knott's Scary Farm Halloween Haunt 2004

after a disasterous visit to last year's halloween haunt at knott's scary farm, leigh-ann and i decided to plan our trip for earlier in the month as to avoid the crowds... since we booked our tickets for a weekday and had picked up discount coupons at burger king (damn, we're getting good at this!). our tickets were only $25 a piece! that's half price! since we had gotten such a discount, we decided to also get the special buffet dinner in the park that started before the park opened for the evening... we were all excited because we knew we would, for the first time, be able to get in early and get a lot done without rushing too much... but as things worked out, traffic got in our way and we ended up at the park as it was opening... parking sucked! two full lots later, when we finally gota spot and rushed to the v.i.p. entrance... when we finally got in to the park and sat down to eat, we both sighed the biggest sigh ever... even though we didn't make it in as early as we wanted, we were indeed hours earlier than we had ever arrived in previous years...

after a good dinner and a nice glass of red wine, we ventured off into the park! with such little crowds we managed to get on both the mine ride and the flume which were both made up with scary stuff for the haunt... before we got on the flume we stopped by the hanging stage where we heard such halloween classics as "clastrophobic sting" by the prodigy (my favorite), and of course the absolute king of scary tunes, "don't stop" by atb... (hahahhhahaha wtf!) the flume was really neat, but it killed leigh-ann's bangs... after a few minutes in the restroom, she emerged with bangs pulled back, and we were ready to get back on our way... i noticed it was time for the hanging to begin, so we headed over that way... we watched the hanging, which is one of my favorite parts of the whole knott's scary farm experience, and it was hilarious as always... i still can't believe the things they get away with saying and doing in that show... it even had the fanta girls!!! so amusing... then we headed over to the pirate maze, which is an aweful place to be-headed... (hahahaha jungle cruise pun intended!) we then met up with patrick, and then with tim and crew...

after grabbign a bite to eat, we went through the 3d clown maze, which is by far my favorite! then jack decided it was time to take a trip back in time on the dinosaur ride... if we had to hear "we're going back in time" one more time i was going to kill someone! the ride of course broke down in the ice age and all i could say was "we're stuck in the effing ice age and i don't even have my jacket with me!" i was so freaking cold... and that bear or whatever it was would not swallow the leaf it was trying to eat for anything! ten minutes and the bear was still on that same leaf... anyways, we finally made it back to the present time and headed over to my second favorite maze, 3d "malice in wonderland!" we ended up seeing the hanging again and i really wanted to make it through the other 3d maze they had in the swamp area, but our group had other plans... even so, i had a great time and i took a bunch of pictures! the pictures are mostly from the 3d mazes, so if you have the 3d glasses that have clear lenses, look at the pix through those 'cause it looks crazy!!!
