It was nice to get an invitation from Prof. Grey of the Arcadia Library to come visit his house. I headed over only to find myself at a very scary place! It looks like he has opened a hangout for skeletons, and a few other questionable creatures. The pirate ship had a “skeleton” skeleton crew on board.
To reach the house itself I had to walk along through an interactive graveyard and I almost did not make it ! One open grave was waiting for me! There was a group of not very friendly skeleton pirates playing cards outside the house and a very unfriendly ghoul lurking inn an open vault... Finally I did get to the stairs to the door and entered a house hosting more skeletons .Watch every step!!!!
In the dining room I sat down at the table for a few minutes to collect myself and see what was on the menu of the day... some of the choices which was floating above the table. I walked into the kitchen which was not in much better shape and decided not to stay there too long for fear of being hit by a flying frying pan, or worse yet , ending up in it!
As I progressed through the house opening doors , each room presented more and more horrors. The nursery was most disconcerting.
On the upper floor I found a secret. This house is part of the Hunt and the hint is on the dock, don’t miss it. There is much to see here so make a stop.
Looking for real bargains for decorating? If you visit the Haunted House at Creations Park you will be able to pick up some wonderful Halloween items each for less than 95L and every cent goes to the Parkinson’s Research.
The entire house is filled with spooky scary items you will love! One room has with portraits and paintings that will only add to your spooky decor. There are freebies hidden among the sale items.. Have fun touching everything you see.
Outside the house there is an array of more fun decor for sale at a little higher price for some. I could not resist the little pumpkin globes and did get several at a price of only 50L each and some are great for Thanksgiving too! There is also a pumpkin hunt in the stores and this location is also in the Hunt.. get the hint. I almost forgot to get my prize!!
When you arrive follow the signs to the Halloween Emporium..
Looking for more Hunt places that are scary or have Halloween decor?? At both these entrances there is a notecard that lists many of the other Hunt places and a description of the Halloween offerings there . One more I always visit is
"15th season Haunted Mansion Ride and Haunt Park by Nance Clowes, now includes Whymsee Sim with Cordelia"
The Best, Most Famous Haunt in all SL history. So much to do and see. This year we have
not only the amazing Ride and Dark Park, but also the famous Whymsee Hunt Sim for Halloween as well. Truly the top #1 most visited Halloween Haunt many many years running. “

Laura Liberty has opened her Halloween Town until the end of October. This is one of my creepy favorites. Her little town is full of quaint facades of shops and inside there are everything you can think of for decor from pumpkins to skeletons, food, to fun outfits . It is all so enticing too.
Take a walk through all the rooms of the huge shops and look .
The skeleton area is terrific. The mask offerings are great for the variety that are offered for different personalities. The wonderful Pumpkin contest with a total of 3000L prizes is there again. Click the display area for the rules. You can use your creative juices to fashion your pumpkins or start with some help. .
I found my friend Tina who is an assistant to Laura and land manager dancing among the gachas. Why she was wearing her Santa cap? I don’t know but may have been practicing for for her role at the Christmas town.
And , at the bottom of the road is one of the best scary houses in Second Life. It is a good idea to bring along a friend to hang onto as you progress through the house. What you are going to experience is a stroll through popular horror movies etched in your memory . Get ready!!! I have gone through at least four times in the past and still find new experiences .
Have fun! You need time to do it all.. http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Townies/120/104/100
After leaving Halloween Town I stopped over at Moochies. Get the notecard and map at the entrance. This was a new place to me and I enjoyed walking among the trees finding little private relaxing areas for friends to sit and relax.......“Among the treacherous trees, the mouldering mist, the rattling ruins and the wretched wailing winds, there are creepy corners and secluded shadows waiting for those who dare to venture into the darkness. Halloween has arrived...”
If you use the windlight of the region you will really feel the shadows.....and more. I suggest using both region and another windlight because the woods and paths are gorgeous with the autumn colors and to find the little corners in the woods to sit and relax with your friends.
If you love fingernails there is a hunt going on for nails. Pick up the notecard with the hints on it to find all the items you are looking for along the route shown on the map.
I stopped for a corndog at the riverside. It is well worth the visit .. follow the firelights.
