Halloween Haunts at Worlds of Fun:
Ghastly ghouls, creepy clowns, dreadful demons, costumed characters...it's the spectacularly spooky part of Halloween. If you love being terrified--Worlds of Fun scares it up in 2011 with its delightfully scary Halloween Haunts--a creepy filled fun fest on Friday and Saturday nights. From extreme haunts and crazy carnivals to a camp that you'll not sure you'll make it out of--forget the rides honey, just walking around Halloween Haunts will scare the begesus out of you.
But...is it Really Scary?:
As an adult, I must say I was totally scared and half completely excited entering Worlds of Fun on their first Saturday of Halloween Haunts. I wasn't sure exactly what to expect--would it really be scary? Would I want to scream my head off? The answer after the fact--an astounding yes.
Where to Get Scared:
I think Worlds of Fun does a great job because they put so much effort into their costumes, actors, and sets. They only allow small numbers of people into the haunts so it doesn't get overcrowded, although the lines end of being fairly long. Halloween Haunts is divided into four parts--Scarezones, Mazes, Shows and Family Fun.
Head to the mazes to get scared out of your wits
