Perhaps the spookiest of all

Spookyworld and Nightmare New England is in my neck of the woods, in Litchfield, N.H. Last fall, someone handed me coupons for admission while I was shopping for my Princess Lea wig. Like a fool, I called my brother's kids and asked if they were interested. "Ah, Auntie Kim, I don't think you want to go there." Not even my teenage nephews would go to Spookyworld, which translates that if they were too spooked to go, then I would have a stroke and die at the feet of the first eyeless ghoul. Or worse, clowns -- nothing as terrifying as clowns.
My cowardice aside, I realize many of you want more scare, more fright, and more gore, so this one's for you. Now through Halloween, victims will tiptoe through seven horrifying haunts, encountering the creatures that fester below as they are “Buried Alive.” Or dare to enter “Raven’s Claw Cemetery,” where corpses and zombies lurk in the fog among the graves, and look out for the blood thirsty vampires of “Night Feeders.”

Spookyworld is ranked one of the best frights in the U.S., and is listed as one of top 12 eerie elite across the nation for 2009 by America’s Best Haunts. Like I said, this one's for teens and adults, NOT young children, or middle-aged fraidy-cats like me. Cost is $29.99 to $49.99 (perhaps something to scream about as well).
