New Attraction For Halloween is Official

Postby PGA ROCKS » Sat Sep 08, 2007 5:18 pm

I just visited Santa Clara today, and I saw a sign sitting in front of Rue Le Dodge, that said:

"Attraction closed. Coming soon: Carnevil!"

I guess the rumors are true. I hope that this will turn out well. Maybe Cedar Fair will have to take out the bar in the middle of the Bumper Car arena. :D I should have taken a picture of it, but I forgot.

And if I'm not mistaken, today I thought I saw new orange souvenir cups for halloween promoting the Carn-Evil maze.

I was wearing a white shirt and shorts. Maybe you did see me. I was on Loggers at around 4:00 with my dad. What position do you work? Station? Chute?

^They probably sell them anywhere they sell the regular souvenir cups. The places in the food court, probably Sticky Fingers next to Centrifuge and probably everywhere they sell food around the park (Pizza Orleans, Sweet Tooth, etc). I doubt they're going to sell them at Nicktoons Cafe with the rest of the souvenir cups just because it's too "scary" for the small kids.

Clown Maze

Postby Morgansupertech » Tue Sep 11, 2007 10:59 pm

YEP!!!!!!! The maze is going along great! I’ve been put in charge of building it along with some of the other entertainment techs. We have been working on it for the past 3 months…LOTS of hours.

I’ve also been put in charge of painting the maze since they liked what I did last year with the Halloween bumper cars.
We are putting a ton of work into this project. I’ve actually been coming in 6 days a week to work on this thing so I hope yall like it.

For your enjoyment: here are some pictures of stuff I painted last year when we turned it into Collision Caverns. As you can tell…we had a limited budget, I volunteered to do this stuff.

and this is me wearing the pumpkin head I painted to cover up the F100 fog machine.

I just have a question. How scary is the maze going to be? Is it going to be "family friendly" scary, or "scare the crap out of everyone" scary? Just curious.

If it's anything like the Halloween Maze we had in the Events Tent in 1999, sounds like it is going to be tons of O.T. for Security.
