Ghoulies and Goblins abound when the Greater Akron group are around!

UPDATE: The date and time for this event has been changed. If you are no longer able to attend this event, please adjust your RSVP. If you couldn't make this event before but can now, please join us!!

I want us to visit the Haunted School and Laboratory near All Hallows Eve (Halloween).

I went last year and it's a really good scare fest. Not TOO scary, it's just about right. Your brain does more to scare you than anything in the place itself :-)

Be brave and join me.

    Hmmm... Carnival of Horrors is a possible option...

      I think I've had my fill of being scared. LOL

    Well, we made it through in one piece! We had a great time! They had a price special, so we were able to go thru both the schoolhouse and lab. One of the floors in the lab had 3D glasses, which was a cool idea! The line was long, but really not too bad. I screamed a lot! As you said Jon, it was scary but not too scary. As it turned out, it appeared they pick on the female that screams a lot (me). Didn't matter where in line I stood! LOL Very cool costumes and effects. I would definitely go again!!

      I'm so happy you enjoyed it. I was going to add that they pick on the screamers but thought you may have figured that anyway. Well done.

    To all going tonight, a couple of tips:

    1. Don't dawdle. They love to pick on stragglers

    2. Take it in turns at the front. They don't 'do' the person at the front

    3. Don't continuously hold your hands over your eyes. You need to scan the sector for the exit.

    4. Don't scream too loud for too long - think of the poor ghoul's ears!

    5. Enjoy it. They can't touch you. Well, they're not supposed to ;-)

    • Renee

    Haunted Schoolhouse & Lab just posted this on their Facebook page: "We have some very exciting news we want to share with all of you... But not quite yet... We will share that news later tonight... Mwahahaha!"

      Hmmm... What could that possibly be?

      October 24, 2013

    • Renee

      What, they got their ax blades sharpened? LOL

    My cell phone is such a pain, it won't let me change my RSVP. I thought this was next Thursday, on Halloween night, so I forgot to request off this Thursday - so I'm working til 9 :-( which really stinks because I wanted to do the haunted house with the group!!! Ugh! You guys have lots of fun & please post how scary it was (or wasn't lol).

    1 · October 21, 2013

    • Renee

      Sorry you can't make it! I appreciate you letting me know. We will give you an update afterwards. :)

      I so badly want to go with the group!! I will be thinking of you all as I work tonight (boohoo) :)

    I haven't been to a place like this since I was a teen. Might as well feel like a kid again.

    1 · October 22, 2013

  • Renee

    Note to all: I've never been to this, but let's say we will meet near the ticket purchase area. I will be wearing a red coat.
    Because of the weather, let's all try to meet promptly at 7:30 so we can go in together and not wait in the cold. If you will be late, send me a message thru meetup.
    If you cannot make it, please change your RSVP!!! Thank you!!
    See you Thursday!!

    October 21, 2013

    • Jon H.

      There is a foyer and queuing area for you all to meet in. Its all undercover once you get in. Enjoy your evening ;-)

      1 · October 21, 2013

    • Renee

      Wonderful!! We'll meet there then!

    "I ain't afraid of no ghosts..." BUT ... I have an office retirement party. Ya know, the kind where it's not "mandatory" to attend, but there's always that one sniveling brown-noser that takes attendance? Yeah... So... I'm gonna hafta pass on this one.

    2 · October 19, 2013

    • Renee

      LOL!! You're too funny Mike! Have fun at the party and try and keep your nose clean. :)

      2 · October 19, 2013

  • Terri C.

    I am getting to be such a scaredy cat as I get older! But I'm going to try and make this w/1 guest. I will put in my request off for work, but Tuesdays and Thursdays are the worst days right now because everyone's in school, so I may not be able to go. I'll let you all know!

    2 · October 9, 2013

    • Renee

      Sounds good! I've never been to a haunted house, and I scare easily. This should be very interesting! If you can't make it, perhaps go a different day. Sounds like its a good one!

  • Renee­ changed the date and time from Tuesday, October 29, 2013 at 8:00 PM to Thursday, October 24, 2013 at 7:30 PM

  • Renee

    Hello everyone!
    As Terri pointed out, we either need to pick a different date (a Thursday in October) or cancel this event. Please give me your ideas/input or 'like' this so I know you received this message. :)
    Thank you!

      Asked not 'asks'

      October 7, 2013

    • Renee

      I have an email out to the RSVP members about the dates. I will pick one and repost in the next day or two. :)

    I am looking at HSH & Lab's website and they are NOT OPEN on Tuesday, 10/29. Only Thursdays through Sundays.......

    October 2, 2013

    • Renee

      Yes. You are correct Terri. Good catch! We will either need to reschedule on a Thursday or cancel this event. What does everyone think?

      1 · October 2, 2013

  • Jon H.

    Hi folks, I will not be able to attend this event. Renee will meet you in the car park of the Haunted Schoolhouse. Its a big car park and I would recommend that you meet just inside the door which is a large queuing area. I also recommend that you purchase a ticket for both the Schoolhouse and Laboratory. If you do one, you may as well do it a second time ;-)

    I hope you all make it around without losing anyone. I hear that some do get lost and they're never seen again!! Anyway, enjoy it and be scared, be very scared. Mwuhahahahaha...

    1 · September 29, 2013

    • Renee

      LOL Jon! I will arrive a little early and post on the Meetup site where we are meeting if it isn't clear or very crowded.
      Looking forward to it!

      1 · September 29, 2013

  • Terri C.

    Oooooohhhhhh!!! Count me in (as long as I remember to take off work) with one guest who has never done a haunted house before lol!!

    September 6, 2013

  • Michael

    Aw bummer, will be on a cruise. The Haunted Schoolhouse is a lot of fun though.

    August 8, 2013

    • Renee

      Lol! Never heard 'aw bummer' and 'cruise' in the same sentence.

      2 · August 11, 2013

    • Michael

      lol good point..the bummer part is not having fun with you all, but I am sure I will overcome it on the cruise. :)
