halloween plans, anyone?

Since there are now two small children in my life, we don't get to do a lot of "scary" Halloween stuff. Plus, I'm not the biggest fan of people jumping out at me, and I don't want to be chased around by a guy with a chainsaw. There's an interesting place in birmingham (Sloss Furnace), but with no family around to babysit and $20 per person plus gas and babysitter? That's about a $100 night, which just sucks the fun right out of it.

But this year. THIS year I'm hoping to go here:

According to their website:

"A group is lead through the apocalypse by Sergeant McKinsey. Known as Mack he is a post military zombie fighter dedicated to try to help the human race survive the zombie invasion.  Mack will lead our group through this wasteland of destruction and gore keeping the zombies at bay with his M16 plus the help from friends they find along the way.  Will they make it through the chaos and constant zombie attacks from all sides?  If they move quickly and stick close to Mack they stand a chance, but most likely not everyone will get out alive. With plenty of gunfire, car crashes, gore, and of course many zombie attacks inside and out, this is what the end of the world would look like."

90,000 sqaure feet!



  1. Sloss Furnace is worth the trip, although is an expensive outing as you say. Still worth it in my opinion.

    The Zombie Apocalypse was freakin awesome though! It's $20 too, but it was really well done. My only gripe with it was that the tour guides rushed you through it. They were dressed as military of course, and kept screaming for us to run, or "MOVE IT!". I went on a Friday though, so it might be different if it had been no a night where half of Atlanta didn't show up.

  2. I thought I remembered that you'd gone, but I couldn't find a corresponding post to confirm it. If we went to the one in Atlanta, we would leave the kids with my parents, and it would actually be cheaper. go figure.
