I just found out that I have a secret talent when it come to scary things! Keeping others calm in "haunted houses." Did you know that if you don't like to be scared there is a prime place in line to be in during your time in one? The best place to be is 2nd or 3rd person in the group. While we are not big fans of gory haunted houses with weapons, we knew the ones at Cedar Point would be "safe". Children were welcome. There were signs that they were designed for older kids and those under 4 feet should be accompanied by a responsible person. There were no weapons, no blood, mostly just people in make up jumping out of hiding places. When we went in, Kara immediately grabbed my hand. I knew she was scared so I calmly talked her (and myself) through. We were in 2nd in line behind another couple. The woman in the couple in front of us was an easy target. She kept getting scared because the "monsters" always seem to jump out at her. . As Kara and I would walk in a room, I was say out loud. See, there is a person right there... Now that you see them you have no reason to be scared. Kara immediately calmed down and was then just fine through the entire house. Since they could see I was talking to a child, the monsters didn't really jump out at us. When we were done, the woman in front of us thanked me because my calming talk to Kara also calmed her down. LOL! Kristina who was right behind me, also heard me and she was also able to stay calm. Who knew I could calm a room down just by talking.
This picture is also really funny. Kyle was "passed out" in front the of saloon in Old West/Mine area of Cedar Point. The girls and their dad wanted to go to Eden Musee a spooky wax museum, but Kyle did not want to. We sat on this bench to wait which happened to be in front of the saloon. Kyle decided he was tired while we were waiting, and laid down to take a short nap.
By this point it was getting late, and we were all tired. We took one last ride on the Giant Wheel, the large ferris wheel where you can see the entire park. It was beautiful, but very cold at the top.
