Rich's Fright Farm. Even though it was emotionally and physically exhausting, we waited in line for 2 and a half hours, we didn't get home until six am and MaryAnne broke her finger, we couldn't wait to go back this year! It was creative and scary and like living through an actual horror movie.
This year we convinced Theresa, Crazy Lynn and The Empress to join us. MaryAnne and I were so proud of our haunted find last year that we bragged on it all year long. We couldn't wait to share it with others.
Sadly we were disappointed, as were our friends.
It's not that the Fright Farm was terrible. It still is a heck of a production! They clearly work year-round and spend a great deal of money to put on a show. Theme this year was an outbreak of zombies. Who doesn't love zombies? Theresa is quite fond of them, especially. But something was missing. Maybe it was because I've seen such committed and excited actors this year at places like the Scaregrounds and Freddy's that it was hard to give Rich's as many props as we did last year. The actors just weren't that into us.
Freddy's is still a great place to go. It would be in my top five, for sure at this point, but I can't stress enough the impact that the actors have on a haunted attraction.
Food is plentiful at Rich's, but sadly, there are only port-a-john's.
What's Going On Here?
There are SO MANY wonderful book review blogs out there and I can't compete with them, that is for sure. So this is not a book review blog. This is just a way for me to organize what I have read so that I can be better at matching the right book to the right person. The blog title comes from the brilliant mind of the most talented woman who ever lived, Ms. Judy Garland. The full quote is, "Always be a first-rate version of yourself, instead of a second-rate version of someone else." That is what I hope to do here and in ever aspect of my life.
