2011 Halloween at the YMCA (Boca Raton)

This year's YMCA haunt is Grim Tales, a nightmare trip through demented fairy tales, nursery rhymes, and childhood morality plays. Some are innocent fare twisted to malevolent purposes, some are plenty scary in their own original versions and are presented as-is, without any modern PC polish. (Does everybody remember the fate of the stepsisters in the old school Cinderella, for example?)

The event is 10/22 this year and as always includes much more than the haunt. Trick-or-treating, games, hayride, bounce houses, magic shows, music, performers, etc. Suitable for families with kids of all ages, though the haunt is not recommended for very young or easily frightened children.  

I'll do my best to keep the updates coming here and on the Schreckwerk site.

Can't wait to see it! Last year was great and the hayride was fun. Also I'm excited to see what became of my children's nursery furniture!

It is one night only?
Dang!
That is the night of my "Reaper Madness" Halloween party.
Sad

Yes, IshWitch. That is a haunter's curse isn't it. So many parties and so little time in October. Sad

Kindred Spirit: I am cheerleading other departments at the Y to try and add some other new goodies this year, like a "Graveyard Golf" putt putt course, recycling the Fear on Film stuff for character photo ops, etc.  My goal is nothing less than expanding this into a regional, multi-night, multi-attraction Halloween carnival! I also can't wait till you see the nursery scene. Muahahahahha!

Wow! I've been crazy busy. I just realized how long it's really been since I've been by the site.

We are rocking and rolling for this year's haunt. We're in a smaller space than last year, but things have really been shaping up well. We have a great group of volunteers. If anybody can make it down to Boca on 10/22, let me know, because I will be working backstage at the haunt from till 9:30 but would love to get together after!   

It has less to do with being coy than having my spine broken with work, but I will provide some pics after the event!
