Gray's Fright Night; through Oct. 29
What began as a popular Halloween party ten years ago has grown into a multi-attraction family-run free-for-all.
We were first funneled into a pitch-black self-guided maze meant to whet our appetites. Hearts pounding, we entered. But when the monsters inside broke character in order to hustle us through (ultimately catching us up to the group ahead), we came out the other end a little deflated.
At the main haunted house, we were assigned our very own ghoulish guide. In our case, it was the patroness of paranormal herself, Lisa Gray. She left us to fend for ourselves at key points in our journey, upping the fright factor. Rattle and flashlight in hand, she'd reemerge with an evil smirk to warn us of impending doom (and to watch our step).
With a focus on family fun, Gray's offers a maze, haunted house, hayride, campfire and concession stand. And it's very reasonably priced compared to some other behemoth boo-factories.
