I can't wait to see the maze! I'll probably be there next Saturday, the 13th. Apparently, it really is going to be insanely scary.

I went yesterday for the preview and it was awesome. I won't say any details, but if you want to know how it was, PM me.

Yeah, please don't spoil it for us. I can't wait to see it. All I will ask is: is it scary as hell?

IMO, it wasn't scary as hell, but it was pretty damn good.

Yeah, it just all depends on how scared you get. But it's definately worth going if you have a season pass. And don't go during the day, go when it gets dark. The atmosphere is a lot better at night.

Are you working the maze? Because I'm going to be at GA this Saturday to check out the maze. Maybe I'll see you.

I also have another question: does it use a lot of strobe effects? Because my dad gets really bad migranes from strobe lights.

There is one section in the maze, where all it is, is that it has the most strobe lights I've ever seen combined with a mirror maze and fog. Out of the entire maze, only one section has strobe lights.

Yeah I work in the maze, you wont see ME though, I will be dressed up like a clown and wearing a mask. I will be kicking it all over town at 5pm when i direct the rugrats float. this weekend is the first run of the Nickelodeon Spooktacular Parade.
There is only one room with strobes in it but that is the only light source in that room and the walls are covered in mirrors, he can ask to bypass that room. I know that is possible because i built the maze but a blackout might have to escort you around the room, there is one right before the strobe room starts so just ask them, they should help you out.

Also, GET THE 3D GLASSES!!!!!! it is sooooo much cooler.

So how did everyone like Carn-Evil? What did you like/dislike? Was it scary? What could have made it better?

We just finnished taking it down yesterday, it came down WAY faster than it went up. Don't worry, it will be back next year along with 4 other mazes! HAUNT 2008 is coming!
