Knott's Halloween Haunt 2011

It is that time of year again..when we go with our usual group of friends to Knott's Halloween Haunt.
It was the usual group of Gabe and I, Josh and Vicki and Greg and Maria.
I was weary because I was already getting sick but we had already purchased our tickets so I just loaded myself upon some day quil, some 5 hour energy and a few drinks to get me through the night. It helped but man the next day killed me!

 Gabe and I parked and took our bags to the room ( we were staying at the Knott's Hotel and splitting a room with our usual roomies and vacation buddies Josh and Vicki) We made cocktails in the room and then headed to the Hotel restaurant Amber waves for some dinner which was just a whole lotta apps and drinks. Us gals got Halloween themed drinks and the fellas got beers. I had the pumpkin Pie was tasty.There was this guy busting Josh's balls and Gabe went in to play peace maker and the ahole loud mouth guy ended up buying gabe's beer and My was kinda funny.
 I love the bar how festive they get with the decorations. The place was packed then all of a sudden it was cleared out. There was a wedding going on there that we got to watch outside of the hotel room was very cute...there was also a high school reunion going on. After we ate it was back to the room for a few more drinks. We met up with our other friends as well..John Michael, Bob, Toni and her cousin David.
 When we got in the park the first thing we did was make a b line to the Log Ride. We ended up sneaking in some booze too so we were pretty happy.  This picture is funny of Josh and John Michael.
 On the log ride it was a Sleepy Hallow theme..Toni and her cousin sat in the front and Gabe and I in the back. Here was the headless horseman. My camera was not taking very good pictures this night.
 We hit up a few mazes after the Log Ride such as The underworld thing on the mine ride, The dollhouse, Terror in London..we wanted to go on Pony express but the line was too long so we headed to carnevil streets and went on the Day of the Dead 3 d maze
 Instant dorkiness with the 3 d glasses!
 Got kinda lost in this one for a moment.
 We stopped at the beer garden for a little bit ..
 Hmm what is going on here???
 Sang Happy Birthday to Josh!
 everyone was pretty buzzed by this time and everyone got split up some how..Gabe and I wanted to hurry and hit up the rest of the mazes since it was only a hour and a half til we followed Greg..he was leading the way walking with his stuffed animal thingy hanging out the back of his pants and waving his hands in the air..he was almost like marching..we went to Virus Z, then Corn stalkers...which after corn stalkers Greg said he and Maria were too drunk and now going to head back to the room but Gabe and I were not finished yet..we had more mazes that we needed to go to..
 Gabe and I went on some other camp snoopy maze ..I forget what it was called..another mutant underworld type maze and went to ghost town and went on this prison break maze then into delirium..we found by the ghost rider all the fortune teller tents..we were going to get our fortune read but was just too tired . We went walking around to see if we could find anyone else but it was just about closing time...there was this weird get up of half a woman's body that was eaten by what appears to be a pickle in a barrel..WTH?? As we were continuing to walk we heard this crashing sound and all this laughter and turn around to see this guy who apparently stumbled into one of the trash cans ..all we saw was some dude laying on the ground and it was Josh! LOL It was pretty funny..he did not remember it though.
We were so tired that we headed back to our hotel room for some sleep and relaxation. It's always nice to see our old Skeleton bell hop crew every year. Greg got a good pictures with all of us in front of it..wish I had it to post up. Anyway we are already looking forward to next year! We are going to be doing the Queen Mary Dark Harbor on the 15th so more fun to be had..I just love Halloween Time!
