It's late. You're alone reading or watching TV, and then you hear it ... a soft knock, a subtle creak, a quiet footstep. You tell yourself it's just the house settling, but deep inside you wonder ... "Is it? Or is there something here ... watching me ... waiting ..."
The truth is they're everywhere.
Most of the time they're invisible; but every October, the veil between the spirit world and our own is chillingly thin. That's when you can watch in horror as ghosts and ghouls feed on the frightened screams of the living at Dorney Park's Halloween HAUNT.
-- 3 haunted outdoor mazes
-- 4 indoor haunted houses
-- 2 not-so "live" shows
-- legions of midway monsters
-- most of the park's rides ... in complete darkness
Come, my friends. See for yourself. But beware...
You can't run ... because they'll follow you.
You can't hide ... because they'll find you.
You shouldn't scream ... because it only draws them closer.
And don't bother closing your eyes ... because you'll still see them.
Join us, and be brave. There's strength in our numbers. As long as we stick together, they can't get all of us...
1. When you RSVP...
a) In your COMMENTS section, PLEASE STATE IF YOU DO OR DON'T PREFER THE FOLLOWING:
-- Willing to drive
-- Scary Halloween stuff
-- Roller coasters/rides that drop
-- Rides that spin
-- ALL RIDES ... you're an unstoppable, relentless, adrenaline maniac
-- Staying at the park late (possibly 'til closing at midnight)
If we can get that information up front, I'm hoping we can group people appropriately (so people can roam the park with those of like ride/haunt interests for as long as they reasonably want without having to leave earlier/stay later than they'd like).
b) PLEASE E-MAIL ME YOUR E-MAIL ADDRESS AND CELL PHONE NUMBER when you RSVP "Yes" ... This way I'll have a contact list to e-mail specific information (without having to e-mail all 550+ people in the group) as the event gets closer. I will give you my cell number as well and will not share your information with anyone else.
2. As always, please RSVP EARLY AND COMMIT TO ATTENDING so no potential carpoolers are stranded.
3. BRING EXTRA CASH. The price quoted below ($21.50) only includes a Starlight Ticket (for discounted admission after 6pm) and the $1 website contribution. It does not include anything else, such as food or games. PARKING IS AN ADDITIONAL $10 PER CAR.
MEET US at 5PM in the MACY'S PARKING LOT at PLYMOUTH MEETING MALL ... the furthest area away from the store where you enter from Germantown Pike. I'll be the guy in the loud, hideously ugly orange t-shirt standing next to my very embarrassed girlfriend.
From there we'll divide into cars and head northward on the toll-road, Northeast Extension (I-476), DEPARTING AT 5:15PM SHARP. Last one arriving at the park gets fed to the ghouls.
