2008 was a smaller year Halloween wise due to a new little monster. Our 5 month old, Dade! Or, as we like to call him here, Darth Dader!
This year we decided to lose the maze and just make a scare area like in 2003's graveyard. I was disappointed with the lack of Trick or Treaters in general. For a Friday, I expected more. The scare zone had it's pros and cons. TOTs were slightly disappointed that it was smaller and a little confused on where to go. The benefits were that the monsters were able to roam freely and chace guests around. In addition, there was a lot less work overall. I think with some fine tuning, the scare area could be turned into more of an "open" maze. Which would give the TOTs more of a flow on where to go but also allow the monsters to roam more freely.
