  1. Not sure when I'll be back in Orlando, unfortunately.
  2. I did The Dig back in July with my 12 yr old daughter and 6 yr old son. It was my first escape room ever, and I loved it. I didn't escape, but I will be aiming for The Ringmaster as my next room. The rooms are beautiful and highly detailed.
  3. In one tweet, HHNO creates the unrealistic hope for LegendaryTruth's return. Someone needs to talk me down.
  4. If I'm able to go this year, it's a big if still everyone, the 28th or 29 will likely be my dates.
  5. Yeppers!! And it was 08 not 09 Side note: I'm currently attempting to fix Uni's poem. They totally screwed up the meter and cadence of the last two lines. My FTFY to Uni: A wicked witch rules this land Each legend cursed by her hand Every tale twisted with fear There're no happy endings here
  6. Incoming Hollywood announcement... Could be Blumhouse. Could be an exclusive. Saw the tweet. Now we wait.
  7. With the "completion" of Twisted Traditions construction, I've realized something. A&D have connected a house and zone. Sinema will contain a movie called Pumpkin Guts that was filmed with the cooperation of the Carey, Ohio police per the poster. Given Twisted Traditions theme and the fact it takes place in Carey, one has to wonder if Pumpkin Guts is based on Twisted Traditions.

    We don't seem to have an RIP thread so... On 7/30/18, my grandmother passed away. She was my introduction to horror movies and all things spooky. She instilled in me my love of Halloween. From watching the old black and white classics (Them! was my first horror movie at about 5)and watching Dr. Paul Bearer's Creature Feature, to being with me going through my first haunted house (Pinellas Square Mall), to her annual Halloween bash, she fostered and created my love for horror and Halloween. I miss her deeply. This Halloween will be hard as the annual tradition will be broken. Rest In Peace, Grandma. I love you.

    I never shared mine. I've been using this name since 1998. It comes from the stories I write that will probably never get published. As the cocreator of a fictional world, I am the epitome of a Mystique (world's name) Phreeq (fan/freak).
  10. The more I look at the spec map, the more I hope for an F&F extended queue house. Completely unrealistic since I've been in the queue, but the map is so lopsided.
  11. Tent 1 (Scarecrows last year. The Hallow in 08) will hold DE2 Tent 2 (original home for DE) will hold SSin. We can't abbreviate it to SS. SS is soundstage or Silver Screams. I swear names are being created to thwart our abbreviations! Both Tent 1 & 2 had their previous light issues addressed and fixed by 08. One could say, it was fixed a tad too much in 08. If you went into the two tent during daylight hours, you were practically blind. I got "trapped" in a tree inside The Hallow because I lost track of the glowing tshirt words in front of me. DE2 being a part of the UTH will rely on the amount of detail in the house. All detail work for DE was done in black light paint. T.j. confirmed in the 08 CRO conference call that the house was physically painted in black light. They painted the sets with the black light on. With 10 houses and 5 potential queues in that area, it's really hard to say how many and which houses will be AP early entry.
  12. The novel is an excellent source of material to see how Baum's original creation contains horror elements and how it can be easily translated into horror. When it comes to IPs that are now public domain, other sources and works based on them are always great ways of finding how the original can be altered to fit the horror genre. Will it completely connect? No, but originals are always inspired by outside sources. I'd suggest giving Emerald City a watch as well. We could possibly see imagery from there in Oz portions of the house.
  13. (e)L F(a) B(a) That's how Maguire came up with her name. Excellent books, by the way. I highly suggest them. The other random trivia I already shared is that the L stands for Lyman. My husband shares his first name with Baum.
  14. *temples hands* Excellent. Editted to make what was excellent more apparent. Now, defy a little gravity and figure out what L F B became.
  15. Horror is probably one of the most inclusive genres... I'm tempted to tell what L F B became, but it's such an excellent piece of trivia. A piece of trivia I had to discover the etymology of the moment I first read it back in 05/06(?). I've read too many books over the years. I picked both up around the time The Wolves of Calla came out. Needed something to tide me over while I waited for HP6 and Song of Susannah. ST3 plot line: The Evil Queen has cast a spell allowing her scribes to change the happily ever afters to happily never afters.
