II. TRICK R' TREAT
You enter in Emma's yard with all of the ghost scarecrows. You can see the facade of the house, it is an unpractical set. You come upon Emma's severed body with the pumpkin lollipop. Then Sam jumps out at you with a sheet. You enter through a gate in the fence and are now in the yard of Mr. Kreeg. His yard is full of jack o' lanterns. You enter under the porch and into the den. You see Sam run across the hallway upstairs. Once you exit the den and enter into a hallway leading to the bedroom you see Mr. Kreeg struggling for his life after being attacked by Sam. Still going down the long hallway you hear a shotgun blast coming from a room to the left of you. Then you enter the bedroom with the flaming jack o' lantern and red writing all over the walls. You exit the house and now are in the backyard of Principal Wilkins digging the grave for the kid he poisoned, Charlie. You walk through a tall wooden fence surrounding the yard and are now in what seems like a rock quarry filled with thick fog. There is very little light and you here the voices of children taunt you. Shortly after, the flickering of the bus headlights reveal the children in their costumes, inches away from your face. After you escape from the children you are on the path lit by jack o' lanterns in the forest. After you are distracted by Laurie in her Red Riding Hood costume, a vampire tries to attack you, which later turns out to be Principal Wilkins. Afterwards, you come upon the suprise party. All of the girls are ripping out of their storybook costumes and transforming into werewolves. You see their dates, dead. Once you are about to leave the party, mauled and scratched body of Principal Wilkins falls from a tree with his his vampire costume. You leave the forest and are in an area filled with thick, dense fog. The only thing in sight is a jack o' lantern. You see the flame go out, everything is dark. Then an extremley loud scretch is heard, a blinding light is flashed several times revealing Sam's face in jack o' lantern form.
III. BONE YARD CEMETERY
The entrance to the sound-stage is outfitted with a facade built up to look like a wrought-iron and stone gateway leading into a cemetery. As guests enter the first room, they find themselves walking up a small incline into the decaying ruins of a cemetery that has apparently been neglected for a long time. The floor is carpeted with dirt and dead grass. This first room is built relatively wide, giving guests a view of some of the many crumbled monuments and weathered mausoleums that fill the grave yard. The guests must pass through this first patch of earth,with open graves and mounds of upturned earth on either side. Skeletons lie hidden in some of the partially filled graves, erupting from the earth sporadically as guests pass. At the end of the first room the trail lead guests past the rotting ruins of an old church sitting to their right. An eerie, organ version of "The Skeleton Dance" can be heard being played somewhere inside. As guests round the corner of the church, they pass by some broken windows on the other side. A sudden thunder and lightning effect draws their attention to their left, where they see a crucified, disemboweled corpse on display. As they are distracted by this sight, skeletons claw through the broken windows behind them to startle them.
After rounding the church guests must move through a path that is bordered on both sides by mounds of earth and broken stone. Atop the mounds of dirt and stone are areas where actors can lie down, periodically emerging to claw down at passersby. Skeletal hands also jet out from the walls around them, and even coming up from the earth itself.
At the end of the path guests turn left through an opening in the wall. Here, The Skeleton dance can be heard quite clearly coming from a music box resting an a tombstone. Here there are numerous skeletons dancing to the music, as their brethren sneak up on the distracted guests from behind tombstones. Several mausoleums are fitted with boo-doors, with skeletons clawing their way out of them. At the end of this room, guests see a live man held down to piece of broken stone by four skeletons, who can be seen cutting into his limbs and torso, pulling his bones out, and throwing them in a pile. Across the path from this scene is a mausoleum with a skeleton hiding on top of it, swiping at guests as they watch, and as they turn right around the mausoleum into the next room.
In the next room, skeletons can be seen dancing with fresh, mutilated corpses as their partners. Other skeletons hold their partners against tombstones, and mausoleums, disemboweling them with their bony talons and pulling out their entrails. There are deep graves off to the side of the trail throughout this scene. In them, actors are positioned on small, personal trampolines that allow them to leap full length out of their graves right in front of passing guests.
At the end of this room, there is an open grave with a massive monument. Scareactors beckon guests to enter the grave. They walk down a smooth ramp of dirt into the grave. Vines, tattered bits of cloth and other debris hang from the ceiling to block out light in the underground portion. The tunnels re flooded with the smell of fresh earth. The only lights come from black lights. The walks are black, so as to reflect as little of the black light as possible. They are rugged to the touch, and coated with a chalky, dirt-like substance to further the illusion that guests are underground. There are no skeletons in sight. Actors must feel around against the walls to find their way. The realized they must turn left. The music still echos in the darkness. Skeletal limbs reach out from the darkness. Actors are hidden behind boo-doors and in both sides of the tunnel. The skeletons are all bleach-white, appearing brilliantly illuminated in the black-light. Guests must follow the dark, winding path, with the music swelling to a hellish and frenzied tempo. Skeletons continually assail guests from all all sides, as well as reaching from the floor and the ceiling. Because they are hidden behind boo-doors until the strike, the skeletons seemingly appear out of nowhere.
In the final room of these tunnels, guests enter a wider space, where multiple skeleton puppets are strung up on strings. Actors run in and out of the web of bones, swing puppets at guests and leaping out from behind cover. Strobe-lights fill the darkness in addition to the black-lights, and the music reaches it's fevered peak as skeletons dance and claw all around them, swing over their heads, and chase them out the exit.
