Fright Filled Fall Fun...

I had such an amazing night last night with the best friend (Noella).  We have watched every Paranormal Activity together, and decided we should keep the tradition going.  Paranormal Activity 4 was so good!  We went to eat, see the movie, and then went to the Talon Falls Screampark.  Talon Falls is this huge 40 acre haunted village, with 4 different huge attractions.  First you go on the Blood Creek Hayride where you get shot at, watch a gas station burn, and travel through an old mining tunnel.  Next, you are directed to the Talon Falls haunted house.  This part includes a haunted lagoon complete with "haunted" swinging bridge over a pond, a slaughter house, and a jail full of zombies!  This part is huge and takes about 20 mins to go through, it was also the best.  Thirdly, you end up at a Doll Factory and make your way through a creeptastic house full of people dressed up as Dolls.  There is also an asylum section in this house and the actors are so great at being truly nutty!  Finally a new part was added this year and I was so excited when I heard it was going to be a "freakshow".  This part is in a huge circus tent that you have to find your way through, and then you come to a bunch of fake side show exhibits.  There are 3 real people who do acts, but only as you are walking through and people are pushing you along.  There was a lady fire eater, a guy who could pull a balloon from his nose to his mouth, and a guy who could hammer a nail into his nose.  Needless to say it was not what I expected and I was majorly disappointed with this part, even though they did have a huge ball pit and foam!

 Talon Falls is so much fun and even though it is a little pricey at 40 dollars a person you get a lot for your money.  I will say if you are thinking of going plan it out, the lines can be very long and you may have to wait a long time between attractions due to the number of guests.  Notice the time and date you wanna go the weekend of or before Halloween is a no go unless you want to stand in line with a thousand kids and adult complaining about the wait.  Opening weekend same deal.  I've had good luck going between opening and Halloween at around 9, this made the lines go super quick we made it through in three hours last night compared to going weekend before Halloween last year and being in the ticket line for 3 hours.
