Hold on to your panties everyone, as we are delving deep into some of the scariest local Halloween attractions. These places are not to be taken lightly, as many will have a swarm of scary little children running around. Are you picturing chainsaws, with people chasing you and a ton of blood? Well, that’s not the case here, but we have mined out Halloween Horror Nights extended edition. If you are feeling a little dare devilish, check out some of these attractions. They will surely leave you wishing that you were a kid again.

 

  1. Brick-or-Treat at Legoland Florida

    This ghoulish jack-o-lantern sure catches your eye.

    This ghoulish jack-o-lantern sure catches your eye.

Ghouls, ghosts, and goblins have invaded Miniland USA! This event takes place every weekend in October, starting on the 3rd and ending on the 31st.  Grab a hand to hold, as there will be trick-or-treating along the brick-or-treat trail, as well as a frightening costume contest. If that’s not scary enough, they have the LARGEST LEGO Jack-O-Lantern in the world! As senior Andrew Basta put it, “I walked in a man, and walked out a child with a full diaper…even though I wasn’t wearing a diaper; I was 16. ”  This must have been from the jack-o-lantern, which is made with just over 26,000 LEGO bricks. Start the fun with a pass for only $67, and enjoy event geared towards 2-12-year-olds. That age group just screams scary! Well there you have it folks, Legoland is just too scary for even the best of us.

 

  1. ZooBoo at Tampa Bay’s Lowry Park Zoo
 

 

I recently overheard some of my friends talking about a frightening attraction that is close by. As a seasoned professional who goes every year, PHUHS senior, Briana Coyle stated, “ It’s by far the best attraction around for people our age. Who cares what my mom says; it’s not just for kids! It was worse than Halloween Horror Nights last year. I’d rate it a 9 out of 10, because I love it to much that I go every year.” This is explainable, as ZooBoo draws in so many children for their corn mazes, character encounters, and costume contests. You can choose dates ranging from October 10th– November 1st. This event scares participants from 1:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. on every scheduled day. If you can’t tackle the zoo alone, it will cost $27.95 to bring an adult with you. After all, the adult may come in handy when you’re too scared to continue on.

 

 

 

  1. Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party
This attraction is hands down thrilling. Filled with dressed up Disney characters and candy being thrown around, it will surely throw your head for a loop. It takes place on select nights from September 15th – November 1st. Be sure to satisfy your scares for only $74 if you purchase tickets in advance. Also, the Hocus Pocus Villain Spelltacular is sure to make an appearance on the stage as a new show this year. If that does not spark your interest, there is always trick-or-treating at the Magic Kingdom, and photo shoots with the characters. Junior Andrew Weeden shared his experience with us by saying “the scariest part was the guy slapping his kid in the line for Space Mountain.” I guess slaps and screams call for one scary adventure at Disney World.
