Honestly, I don’t have an “X”, but apparently Sylvie from MyX does.
I was invited to go to the Bleed-Up at Howl-O-Scream on October 1st. What a way to bring in October!
We were all lucky enough to get some food, drinks and pictures with Sylvie. Along with a concert. Ooooh and the most important part – there were giveaways. Three or four people won guitars. And one person won a trip into Alone, supposedly the best haunted house of all time! More on that later…
Around 9, everyone headed out to conquer the scare zones and houses. I took in all the scare zones like a big girl, but I am not a fan of doing haunted houses, so I opted out and was the official bag holder for Jeff, Jacobus, Jen and Jay. Holy crap that’s a lot of J names!
We set out to find drinks (so I would maybe do a house or two) and instead we made a stop at one or two houses for the 4Js to do. Thankfully (for me) rides were open, so we did Sheikra!!
After that, we each grabbed a drink and went to grab our reservation. Reservation for what you ask?
The person that won the chance to do Alone… ME! Probably the ONE person that wouldn’t actually do it. I never expect to win anything, especially since Sylvie was taking out tickets and then ripping them up.
She said Kelly… then couldn’t read my last name. Said Walky (because apparently “I write bad”) and then the person on stage with her read that it said Walker. Yay me?! The ticket was up to 4 people (by the way, this house is an extra cost for anyone not able to win a ticket. It costs $25 in advance online or $35 day off. You can either do the house alone <hence the name> or with a group of up to 4) So who were the four people that did it? Well, I wasn’t included.
Jeff, Jacobus, Jen and Jay!
After they checked in, they waited… and waited… and waited.. They only let one person/group in at a time. From what I was told by the 4Js is that it’s “personalized” of sorts. You don’t get herded through unlike the other houses and it’s a story. If I wasn’t such a chicken it sounded cool.
And if you don’t believe me, by 10:30 all of the spots for the house were sold out for the night!
We didn’t get to see either of the other shows, but while they were in one of the houses I caught a peek at Fiends. Seemed funny and something I would like. Singing.. dancing.. ok I’m in.
I saw a lot of this…
And looked at this a lot to figure out where to go next.
We all had an awesome time. Including me, even not doing any of the houses was a lot of fun. The rides were open. The lines were short and our Front of the Lines passes didn’t get used too much because there were hardly any lines!
