Halloween means two things…plenty of parties and girls dressing in “SEXY” costumes. It seems that any topic, or persona is now susceptible to being converted into a sexy frock for all Hallows eve but when is enough enough? Everything can’t really be sexy…can it? We’ve found all the Sexy Halloween Costumes that have gone too far this season. Some of these will be instantly recognizable but some you may have to take a second glance. For instance….a sexy ewok?? The Sluttiness is strong with that one. Zoikes, when did scooby doo get so risque, and I’m sorry but a sexy Oompa Loompa is a Oompa Loompa Doompity DON’T! We’ve even found a sexy version of the rat seen dragging pizza down the streetss of New York. We think these sexified costume ideas are just absolutely ridiculous. Take a look and decide for yourself.
With the hype up Halloween upon us and growing rapidly we did some digging to find some awesome NOT major theme park destinations. Central Florida never disappoints. Here are five freakishly fun haunts that will get you ready for the holiday. Make sure to take photos and drop our hashtag #worthdoing on social media!
This is our pick for the “if you must try one this Halloween season”. Beyond its professional sets, makeup, props, and scare actors, The Shallow Grave strives to be truly unique. It is one of the only haunted houses in the area that allows scare actors to perform minor physical contact with guests to enhance the experience. Yet it is not an “extreme house” filled with intense physicality, and wheelchairs are welcome. If you are looking for something that is a step up from a traditional haunt, but not physically overwhelming, give The Shallow Grave a try.
A semi resurrection of the Historic Terror on Church Street (most of the staff/techs were brought back together), Legends was opened in 2013 and offers a serious haunted house. The high-budget haunt features professional-quality props, sets, animatronics, and serious actor talent. You can experience this haunt all year.
The two-story haunt is highly theatrical, well-conceived, and impressively executed. Scare actors stationed outside set the mood, and guests are sent through in small groups, creating a far more intimate/ scary vibe than the big theme parks.
Legends brings exceptional makeups and special effects to life
Terror on the Lake (Clermont)
Clermont’s Terror on the Lake is a relatively new haunt that is rapidly making a name among critics and fans alike. As visitors walk through 3,500-square-feet of dark hallways, the combination of detailed animatronics, holographic projectors, and a cast of eerie characters will provide plenty of scary moments along the way. They will encounter cave rooms that open up, TNT explosives, an earthquake effect, and not-so-dead miners. Although Michael is reluctant to give away all the specific details, he promises that “nobody will have any idea what’s around the next corner.”
If you want to expand your evening, Terror also offers a small carnival with fortune tellers, music, and games. The attraction also features the Buried Alive simulator, where you can experience the feeling of being lowered in a coffin, as well as a Zombie Shooting Gallery.
Terror! on the Lake will be held on the following dates: Oct. 11–13; Oct. 18–20; and Oct. 25–Nov. 2.
A Petrified Forest has long been known for its exceptionally scary haunted trail and line-up of evening entertainment. Beginning in 2014, A Petrified Forest has added a second trail, effectively doubling the number of scares. The attraction also features live music, food vendors, and laser tag, but the focus is definitely on the screams. No more than 6 guests are sent through at a time, creating an intensely personalized experience that is difficult to match.
If you are feeling especially brave, sign up for Total Eclipse Nights. On these nights only, the lights are turned off and each group receives a single glow stick. The monsters are allowed to touch you, and even to steal your glow stick. If that happens, you’ll have to make your way through in the dark. Please note that everyone participating in Total Eclipse Nights must sign a waiver, and a parent must sign for those under age 18.
If you want to learn the secrets behind the scares, A Petrified Forest is the only local haunt outside of the theme parks to provide backstage tours. Offered nightly for a separate fee, the backstage tour lets you meet some scare actors and crew members, learn some tips and tricks, and even try out what you learn by joining the scare actors on stage.
Meet your host of this years Petrified Forest Haunt!
The Radley Haunt House (St. Petersburg)
The Radley Haunted House successfully completed a 2014 Kickstarter campaign that raised more than $4,000 for upgrades and expansion. The highly capable team also brought some new talent on board for 2014, further enhancing the creative aspects. Each year’s haunt is completely reimagined, but they always follow the adventures of the mysterious Radley family. The Radley Haunted House is particularly noted for its well-conceived and developed back stories and highly immersive theatrical sets.
