So, you absolutely love Halloween and you crave those thrills and chills that a really good one provides. But the problem is this, you just can't seem to find the ones that take the physiological torture to the next level. The same old, same old bores you. You know the ones. Here comes another fake chainsaw, a mirror, smoke and weird sounds. Since you crave more torture in every way, we probably should be asking you if you need to seek psychological help, but we promise to stay on topic here in helping you seek out some haunted attractions that are up to your standards. We think we know what you are after, a place that will drag you straight to hell and back. We have studied the art of crafting haunted houses and we would like to share out expertise with you so you know exactly what to look for. With that in mind, here are some of the extreme elements you should be seeking as you comb through the Birmingham area looking for the chills and thrills that will paralyze you.
Let's face it, to scare someone and to do it well, you need room. So, we suggest that you start looking for a haunted house that is large enough to house a myriad of scare tactics. There are haunted houses that are over 40,000 square-foot and that in our minds is an excellent start. You absolutely have to have that kind of room if you are going to experience scary activities like crawling through an old crematory oven or if you must get lost in a labyrinth of tunnels. When you have space, there can also be more creepy crawlies of the two legged variety. And by the way, speaking of the characters that you will be interacting with, you want them to look legitimate don't you? You need a haunted house staff that knows what they are doing in terms of makeup and special effects. Otherwise, it just turns back to cheesy again and that is the opposite of what you are looking for.
It doesn't hurt to find an operation that believes in following a theme. For instance, it could be an old abandoned school when the story of Freddy Krueger springs to life. Sometimes, this kind of backdrop can create a heavy connection with the participants and increases the intensity of the experience. Of course, anyone who has went through a haunted house of any level does so with a friend or two. If you really want your experience to be at the highest fright level, look for one that demands that you make it all the way through by yourself. There can be no doubt that doing something like this alone will absolutely make you come out of your skin. Do you have any phobias? There is no level of freaking out quite like that of facing your worst fears and being toyed with by them over and over again. If this is what you want to put yourself through, look for an establishment that advertises this kind of torture. Believe us, they are out there. If you are wondering if you have what it takes to make it through some of these intense experiences, never fear, just make sure you are walking through a haunted house that provides you with a safe word that you can scream when you have had enough. So, are you up for the challenge? Are you ready to be scared out of your mind to the point where you will need to beg for mercy? We hope the advice you have found here helps you in finding the thrill of a lifetime.
