10-23-10 Haunt TR soon to be PTR

Recommended Posts

After a very busy day, my sister and I decided to head down to KI for Haunt for her first time. We left town around 8 PM and made it into the parking lot around 8:50. After purchasing her ticket, which surprised me being only $35, we headed into the park.

 

The first thing I noticed was the lack of roamers, during our whole trip I only saw 3 around the whole park. Anyways, back to the report.

 

Since this was her first time to Haunt and her first visit to KI in over 7 years, we headed for a smaller ride first, Adventure Express. I we approached the entrance I saw the line. This is the only time I have ever waited more than 5 minutes for AE. After about a 15 minute wait, we sat down in 4-2. After the ride, she had to have a cigarette break, so we headed over to the smoking area right outside of the Festhaus and Delirium.

 

We then headed to Flight Deck, which I didn't even know if it would be running. Boy, was I surprised. Another 15 minute wait and we boarded 2-1 since my sister refused to get into the front row. Saw Giga and Tom as they we heading out on the train before us, then it was our turn. After a close call, we were able to get my sister's seatbelt buckled and we were on our way. Even though she said she enjoyed the ride, the screaming she let out the whole time made me believe otherwise.

 

Since before we arrived at the park I agreed to do a few haunts with her, we headed to one she wanted to do, Cemetery Drive. I was really dissappointed in this haunt. There was only 1 or 2 good scares during the whole thing. I then suggested we go over to Death Row, which is one I'd never gone through before, nor will I probably ever again. If it wasn't for the couple in front of my sis and I, we probably would've taken an hour to go through.

 

We headed over to Vortex next. When we arrived at the park, the line was back past the Juke Box Diner, but since it was now down to the stairs, we decided to wait. After about 20 minutes, we headed for seat 5-1, as I always do. After another very close call with the seatbelt, my sister got buckled in and we were on our way. This was my first ever night ride on Vortex, and I can say that I enjoyed it. I also got my first on-ride photo from Vortex as well.

 

At this time, it was around 12:40, and I wanted to get a Beast ride in, we headed over to Rivertown. Since my sister had a headache from Vortex, she decided to wait in line with me and just cross over to the exit when we got up to the platform. Upon entering the line, it was listed as a 45 minute wait. So, we waited, and I shot some pictures of the SOB tombstone and other props, which I thought were hilarious. We when got to the station switchbacks, I started talking with a gentleman, and turns out he was a fellow enthusiest as well. So PKISecurity and I were talking about the fact that they had the last car of the train blocked off, which is what we were both planning to ride.

 

Right before we exited the switchbacks to pick our seat, a group of 3 teenage girls decided to jump from farther back in the switchbacks right to the platform. My sister said something to them, and the moment they started running their mouths, I knew they were had. My sisters yelled out " Linejumpers" or something of the nature, and after another group confirmed it, they were escorted out of the line by security. Made my day . When it was time for me to ride, i boarded 5-2, on the 2nd to last train of the night. It was one of the best night rides I've had. Probably due to the fact I rode alone in my row.

 

At this point, it was 1:45 or so, and the park was deserted. It was really eerie walking up to the front of the park. We stopped at the McDonalds right outside KI and waited a good 30 minutes in the drive thru, but it was worth it. Overall, a fun time at Haunt, and I hope to make it back next week.

 

Final Tally

 

AE-1

FD-1

Vortex-1

Beast-1

 

Cemetery Drive-1

Death Row-1

 

I will have pictures up once I get the memory card from my sister..
