#OutrageousOctober: I (barely) survived Nightfall

31 Oct

I’m not one for scary things.  I don’t like horror movies, I don’t like being alone in the dark, and I hate when people, or things, jump out at me.


However despite these fears, I decided to go to Nightfall and experience the “Nightfall terror” myself.  This was the most “outrageous” thing I could think to do for #OutrageousOctober and I had coupons.


(For those of you who don’t know, Nightfall is a haunted town in Old Tucson that has multiple haunted houses and shows.  Sadly it’s closed for the year, but you can check out their website to plan your trip next year.)  So when we arrived, my friends and I started out at the Dia de los Muertos haunted house.


This haunted house wasn’t too freaky, it was actually quite fun and cute.  There was a lot of dancing and bright colors…


The terror didn’t start until we got to the next house which had the warning: “Horribly Horrific. Please be aware.” I should have turned around then.


This haunted house definitely lived up to its three-skull warning because by the end, my throat hurt from screaming so much. Creatures chased us down corridors, bloody people popped out from hidden windows, and loud hissing steam blew in my face randomly.  However, the scariest part of the night was when I got up close to a zombie and it jumped out at me.  I caught the incident on video so you can relive the horrifying experience with me.  Luckily, there is no sound so you can’t hear the high pitch screaming of four girls.


Some other terrifying moments of the night were when the zombies and monsters roaming the street sneaked up behind us.  We didn’t know they were there until we turned around and came face-to-face with creatures like these:


My voice was weak and raspy by the end of the night due to the excessive screaming that went on.  Overall, I had fun and got some hilarious videos out of trip, but Nightfall is definitely a place I will not be visiting next Halloween.
