Exploring Escapade's Haunt

By Deaflegacy

It was raining when I arrived. I could see the tomb, and I could see the house. I continued down to the graveyard. It was a small graveyard. I saw three graves. One of them said something about forwarding an e-mail. Wow. I looked into an open grave. There was a skeleton in there. Brr!!

I continued on but there was not much except to go to the house. It was a small house. It only have one floor. I went in that house. The first thing I saw would be the haunted bookcase. Whoa! Hold on a minute. Haunted bookcase? I clicked on it and got some notecards explaining about the property. That would be interesting. 

The second thing is.. wait! Stop! There's rats on the floor?? Yes, there were rats on the floor. I tried to stay away from rats as I made my way to the other part of the room. There were two red chairs on the other side of the room. There was a “room” too, but it was much smaller.

This was an interesting place. I mean how many places have haunted bookcases? I have a strong feeling that not many do.

I continued to explore this interesting room. On one side, there is books. Unlike the haunted bookcase, these are anything but haunted. They are just that, books. Once again, I avoid the rats as I explore the small place.

I came to the TV. It looks like a normal TV... until a girl's face came through the TV. Ack! What is this? Is this a ghost who are peeking through TV? I have no ideas as I stared at TV in shock. She kept peeking through TV as if she was waiting for someone.

I stopped at the door, peeking out at the rain that is coming down rather heavily. The house had been very interesting. Small but yet, loaded with stories that it is itching to tell.

For anyone who would love to explore a haunted house, this is the place. I would really recommend it.

Halloween Town (2015)

By Gemma Cleanslate

When I went over to Halloween Town I did the entire tour I did last year enjoying the scary ride through the Haunted House.When I went to write about it I took a look at last year’s story and it occurred to me I could not really do a better job in a new article so I will refer you to read it again and then go have a fright!

* * * * *

The sim Townies is definitely unique with  the journey through the quaint town and then the Haunted House. I really loved it. Outside the house there are  shops filled with decor you might like for your Halloween settings and clothing too. Near the entrance there is a pumpkin contest going on too. Grab the directions and you can have fun painting and decorating if you follow the rules.  

Just walking around is good but you can hop a free Halloween Pumpkin Hopper if you like. Better still, to get a good look at the town take a ride on a Devil Hand Town Tour. Just look up and hop on.  After I detached myself from the fingers I approached the Haunted House and entered. Inside I picked up a free frame for pictures that I would take inside and read a sign that told me to watch for 10 gifts that were hidden there.

I discovered quickly that each venue is based on a well known horror film. I am sure you will know.. Carrie... The Shining...The Exorcist ... Jaws and more. I joined some visitors in "Jump in the Line" to dance to the music from Beetlejuice. Long dark corridor with signs lead you from one to another with adventures along the way. Be prepared is all I can say but remember to look for the hidden gifts as you go. 

More adventures await you just follow the guides. I went through the Haunted House twice to be sure I did not miss anything. It was fun dancing in Ghostbusters as my final venue in the house. All this entertainment is due to the work of Laura Liberty with some help from  Tanyja Resident (Tina) and also miki00 Abeyante Laura told me. Have a scary time!

Carolyn Avro's "Second Life's Top Haunted Places Tour and Hunt" Part One

It's been a busy October for the Newser crew, and we've had time to only check a handful of haunts. Fortunately someone else has. Carolyn Avro made up a list, "Second Life's Top Haunted Places Tour and Hunt." In her words, "This is a tour of many types of haunted places and it will be updated all month long with new ones, so take a new list from the sign often.  You will find many amazing types of haunted places and even places to shop for Halloween. You really don't want to miss it. There is so much to see!   Places that have start times other than October 1st will be noted in the individual listing. Each 'Haunt' has a hunt and/or 'freebies'."

It should be noted that Halloween haunts can vary in quality from places that could barely scare your kid nephew to hellish gorefests that will leave you having to bleach your chair. So be ready for a few disappointments, and maybe a sleepless night or two.

ZZ’s Madhouse

by Grease Coakes

It’s around that time October 31st which is Halloween the time of year to dress up and see thrills and chills through and Second Life. ZZ studios as always builds their "Madhouse" every year to share fear. ZZ studios is usally a studio for making adult material. But for the month of October it’s all about the Halloween.

When I walked into the madhouse there was a tame path and a gory path. Being brave and like most characters in horror movies I made the wrong choice and picked gory path. Floor by floor I saw gory surprises and scary sound effects. You’re walking around in a diner with skeletal remains and GASP a zombie appears with a butcher knife. Also backtracking isn’t allowed as I tried to go down the stairs and I was blocked by an invisible wall. ZZ has some clever scripting to make their madhouse a truly mad place.

For each floor it takes a minute or so to navigate through as jumping over things won’t work (trust me I tried). So it’s not a clear path. I wandered around the ZZ sim and found a statue and playground equipment that seems possessed by evil spirits within SL’s pixel grid. Along with that was a SL avatar who seemed forever as a statue I the avatar’s profile and any commutations at all will fail as of course it’s a statue.

After that I checked out the tame path in the madhouse. It seemed much less scary then the gory path. There was a broken window path and the next floor was animated furniture triggering when you walked past. As the saying goes "you fell for the trap." In the tame path I fell into a trap door was sent back to the lower floor.

I was able to grab Darkefur Fraker who’s one of the top vixens of ZZ studios to hear what she had to say, telling her, "You did a great job at your madhouse. How long has ZZ studios been doing the haunt?"

Darkefur answered, "Since... 2011 I believe. Maybe 2010. I've lost track of how many I've built.  *heh* Not a physical award.  I believe we made the top 10 haunted attractions a few years and maybe got an award one time early on."

"Still being in the top ten is a great reason to celebrate scares to share," I stated.

Darkefur agreed, "Yup. As well as being mentioned in many newsletters/blogs/etc.  That's why I say I don't know if we won an award or not since there's so MANY of those types of newsletters out there."

I told her, "Being mentioned in newsletters and or blogs is still an achievement knowing how large SL is. It's hard to be noticed on such a massive virtual environment."

She nodded, "Yeah. And I know it's been mentioned in several over the years."

I then decided to amuse her with something I'd heard, "Is it also true that you enjoy being with stallions?"

Darkefur laughed, "Like you need to ask."

I egged her on, "Haha! So readers of the SL Newser know."

Darkefur giggled, "I'm a kinky fox, as you should know."

Darkefur also suggested that people can challenge the tame path as well for a chance for a new car. However she was undecided what car to get just yet. So as you read this article that should entice you to give the madhouse both tame and gory paths a test drive at the chance at a new car that you can drive around Second Life and be the life of the Halloween party or any party. Darkefur also added “Giveaway car will be mesh, of course.  And mod/copy ok.  SO people can mod it if they want.”

So you might want to show up in a stallion avatar and perhaps charm Darke into clues for the tame and gory paths. A brand new car is a very tempting and grand prize. A good excuse to brave zombies and other scary things in ZZ Studio’s Madhouse.

Vivi's Haunted Hill

By Deaflegacy

Never before has a haunted sim terrified me as much as Vivi's Haunted Hill. For some of you, yeah, I take the horror things a bit too seriously. Perhaps that's my fault. But the thing is is that I have a lot of fun going to Vivis Haunted Hill.

When I arrived at the playground, I found out that signs are not the only thing that greeted me. Ghosts roam the yard. There was even a friendly ghost. Birds even fly in the yard. There was a playground, a graveyard, a yard, and then there's a house.

I went into the house. The house actually have three floors. The first two floors are the normal floors. The third is the attic. You would see a door that would lead to the stairways going to the attic. When you go up the stairs, you would see something in the attic. If you want to know what that is, you'd have to go. That's a scary place, but also fun. Speaking of rooms, there is a room on the first floor that houses the dead. It appears to be a living room as well. Ghosts are in that room.

The rooms on second floor has a floating bed. Another room on the same floor has someone who disappears into bed. I don't know what that is all about. In one of the rooms on the second floor, I click on something and was given a few options. One of them would be “Escape” along some other options like “Victim.” But knowing myself pretty well, I continued to explore the house. I came upon the room where someone disappeared into the bed. That figure appeared out of the bed, shook its head, before disappearing into the bed again. It didn't take long for me to leave the room. It makes me feel like I did something bad.

I went up to the third floor. You can get to the room by taking the stairs. When I got there, the only thing in that room would be candles and shelves full of skulls. With that in mind, I went down to the first floor.

This had been a very interesting tour. I did do something in that house. It's not often I get to choose between “escape” or “victim” as well as other options in that room. If anything, I would recommend Vivi's Haunted Hill to my friends.

Mieville Haunted Nawlins

By Gemma Cleanslate

For my second Halloween experience I went over to  Mieville Haunted Nawlins. I put on the hud I picked up at the entrance and raised my umbrella since it was pouring rain when I got there, lots of thunder too.  It is like a Haunted Mardi Gras so there is a slow parade of floats appearing that you can hop on any time as you see one. 
The main street is lined with sweet little shops where you can purchase Halloween d├ęcor or outfits and other items as you pass. An outdoor market is offering goodies mostly for Halloween. Laughing Jack, a great pumpkin said to me,The ghost got lost in the fog… and he was mist…. “ .He looked like a great addition to a busy sim.   Some of your favorite designers have shops in this town area. I love the style of the shops and other buildings, some reminiscent of New Orleans so the build is a haunted Mardi Gras in “Nawlins.”
As you walk along you will notice little doors with either a red light or a green light. Click the green light doors and get either a trick or treat. As you collect treats they can be exchanged for prizes back at the entrance building. Visit again to check for more treats after some time has passed.
Down the hill from the main shops at the village is a wonderful carnival with fun rides and another market. I found a free shop with Aley’s goulish creations and picked up a few skeletons for home. The grave yard next door features wonderful ghosts, witches, grave stones and more if you are looking for sim decorations. There is a massive haunted house in the bayou, so I took a walk through, up and down the stairs facing frightening views along the way and survived until I fell through the floor of the upstairs porch. There is a little door in there too so don’t miss it. Lots of stairs and doors to explore will lure you onward and up but be careful! 
After my visit to the carnival I went back up to the town to check the little doors again for more green lights. I stopped off at the cute outdoor restaurant next to the market and picked up a begnet and tea then began my tour of doors again. I am trying to get enough for a really nice prize so will be going back again. The whole sim is filled with little surprises and fun for the Halloween season and will be open through the 31st. Enjoy!
