It's going to be a long one:
Thanks to everyone in SnS, but especially Bryan and Giant, you two are complete monsters and as usual, I never see anyone run faster than when chased by a chainsaw wielded by a maniac like either of you two, or anyone else in the zone
Thanks to Fear Revealed for everyone having to put up with beig hounded for their photo all the time and yet still managing to get scares
Thanks to Twenty Years of Fear, especially armyofrobots (RAWR NIGHTMARES RAWR) and Cast B Alice (Up on the sidewalk!) And of course, who could forget the Sentinels? In fact, during a cast change just before the photo one came out wielding a chainsaw! Ah yes, and the chainsaws at the front of the SZ
Thanks to LT for having some great effects, and more importantly, having fun on the last night, kudos to the dancing chair and floor guy especially (I can't remember which cast)
Thanks to Psychoscareapy for the actors seemingly genuinely insane, with their stareouts and dancing along with manic laughter
Thanks to Hades for being pretty intense on the last few nights, especially "Jake 'toga' Jakemeister" when he worked the event on Thursday. On the last night, the first scene was incredibly intense, I don't know how you guys did it! Green eyed skull monster was running around all over the place!
Havoc: Congratulations for house of the year, you deserved it! At first I didn't like you but then I grew to you guys, alas it was only in the final week so was a little too late to actually appreciate it, but never the less, I still loved the house! How you guys kept up that intensity for the entire event, I'll never know! The dedication to the event started from the outset by shaving your heads, which is an amazing feat in its own right, and good job on petting the dogs or trying to scare the kittys away! Brilliant guest interaction here and will be doubtful of another stuffed animal fun year as good as this one! Best sprung house ever, closely followed by;
Catacombs: Cats and Combs you will be dearly missed too, I wish I was part of Stephs fan club, because I really liked the peckers! This house was claustrophobic and twisty and turny, yet had a lot of neat things in it that not many people noticed when giving it a run through! I must say I loved the stories about you and the kittys, and laughed on more than one occasion, again, great guest interaction there!
Hallow'd past: Great house, thanks to Cast A Treak(or was it foon) who danced with me,the Cast A zombies in dead exposure that were also sneaking around with me on tip-toes and dancing, I think Drew even gave you a tip of $1 for it! Thanks to the Body Collectors too for their spine ripping goodness! Oh, and Cast A Jack.
Zombiegeddon: Thanks go to Invader_Butters brilliant charisma and hilarity on the megaphone!
Orfanage: Thanks also go to creepy cindy in first room, and of course, best actor in the house in my book simply because he scared me every time I went through this house in his cast, Black Pirate (HO HO HO) that laugh will taunt me forever!
Finally, to recap all my major thanks: Cast B Alice, C_D, armyofrobots, giant4203, Pumpkinhead and Invader_Butters
One of the better years, in general, I'd like to thank all the actors for making a so-so concept/theme into an amazing year with their energy and dedication! Keep it up for next year, folks!
It was great meeting everyone in the photo, and I can't wait to see what it turns out like, especially with the Sentinel in the back!
Now it's time to thank everyone from here that has made the event special for me, it has honestly been the best year I can ever remember in my book, and I'm genuinely sad to be leaving you guys, hopefully I'll make it back next year, but if not, then I'll be back another time! I'll try and stay in contact with you all, and quite a few of you should be expecting care packages after Christmas (Yes, my bank is drained of funds) In no particular order: Mark, Jenn, Michele , Jake, Max, Steph, Andrew, Drew, Carlos, Ladyvulpix (I've never ever known your real name) If I missed your name out don't be offended! These were the people who I spent most of my time with, or had great memories with from before, or I might've simply had a mental block and forgotten to add you!
All in all, the best year I've ever been to, not only because of the energy of the casts, and the enthusiasm the actors have, but because of the people I've met, and the new songs like the sidewalk song, and new habits, like calling out rabbit 'hoes I've picked up.
I'll leave you with the Lyrics to a song:
Up on the sidewalk,
Away from the scares,
Up on the sidewalk,
Now you're drawing the stares,
Up on the sidewalk,
Thanks guys, and hopefully the same next year :')
