in an eerie old warehouse, The Scream Haunted Adventure appeared to be a haunt
we could really sink our teeth into, from the outside.
atmosphere entering the main waiting area was nice, with a large screen for
movies and the like, but there was hardly anyone in line that night, so it was
We handed over our tickets and entered the house, right away meeting our
first actress, who announced to the house over a loudspeaker that she was
sending in two more victims.
At first thought, I didn’t like this, but as we made our way through
