Halloween at Calas Ghaladon

by Gemma Cleanslate

Calas Ghaladon Halloween  is a bit different this year. Due to real life obligations instead of a new installation the owners, Ty Tenk & Truck Meredith, there is a retrospective of the past years builds. It is really charming  to see the past familiar parts of Halloween appear again.

There are the beautiful to the scary pieces of the past . The first stop I always make is to take the boat ride . This ride takes place in  one of the beautiful parts of the Halloween remembrances . You get a view of the hanging islands and the Pavilion . It is a mixture of several years.  2016 NEVERLAND, 2014 DARKWOOD, and the dragon from the 2015 VALYRIA region.

Once on the ground look for portal that will take you to Darkmoon and the Mothership. The water is safe to traverse. If you picked up the friendly notecard there is a choice of using the Portals along the way to move from venue to venue , or taking a teleport directly there. “The first time you enter the Portal you will need to ACCEPT the permissions request in order to pass to walk through.  You will only have to do this ONCE “ is the advice. Music and shared environment are also recommended.

The Dig is from 2019 and is a walk to reach. Oz Noir is also from that year and is so reminiscent of the old Oz of stories . The decor is elegant 20's .Look for the list of events to take place at one of these venues with the dates and times . 

It was fun looking back at my past visits. Calas Halloween is always different from most Second Life Halloweens. Next year we will see what is in store .

More Halloween Places in Second Life

By Gemma Cleanslate

Grimly!!!!! Here you will find a ride that takes you literally into a movie. This is a scary movie and I am not going to tell you any more. You need to go for the experience.

 Keep your hands in the traveling cart. Do not stand up - it is a long fall! This region has other rides if you live through this one go back and take a tour. I noticed there is a hunt going on as I entered a nearby haunted house after I survived the rides.

 Across the way is another ride called The Screaming Goat . Do it over and over again  with a different experience each time for a choice of 9. And don’t miss Borley Haunted Mansion . The entrance is down the road. And .. there is more! Keep walking . Bye. I got a notice after I left that there is another new ride there now too. I have not had a chance to check it out but I am sure it fits the name.

Nance Clowes has been so busy with Second Life events. However she has set up her wonderful Haunted Mansion tour. While you wait for the door to open, notice the tombstone. Read the signs too. Be careful when you enter, don’t click by accident, you might find yourself outside again. The voice of experience!

 This all takes a while so plan your time. It is a cool ride. I take it every year.

 Many ghosts inhabit this retirement home , all invited by Nance to move in. Some love it , though I think there are a few reluctant that  I found. Inhabitants  have their entertainment inside and out  and good meals. The sights and sounds in the house add to the experience. I recommend taking a friend on this ride. There is so much to see and discuss and scream at. The ghosts may invite you to stay as you pass through. That is up to you.

As you visit Halloween event places there is a sign at each and you can get a list of many other places to visit so click .
