Meet the 13

Hello my little Ghouls and Goblins!

Velcome to the first post in a 3 part mini series! I decided to split this post up into 3 sections because it would be WAY too long to even bother putting in one post. I would get bored reading it and it's my own blog. 
Something I have not let on about myself is that I love me a good hearty scare. EVERY year I WAIT for Halloween to come around, granted it's not like it used to be. At least not where I live.NO one gets into the spirit around here anymore, it's actually pretty depressing.
Note: If you have a weak stomach or get scared easily this might be a post to skip
Well my little devils let me tell you this year is going to be exciting. I bring to you Busch Garden's Tampa Bay Howl O Scream 2013! Muhahahah *evil laugh*!

The theme this year is The 13. 

... Okay bear with me, I totally understand that it doesn't sound exciting, when I first heard it I just rolled my eyes in disgust. If you were around for last years Howl O Scream you know it was EXACTLY the same as the previous year. It sucked so hard you have no idea. They got rid of the scare zones, same theme, etc.. I feel bad for Williamsburg!! Okay... Back to the topic at hand.

Who are The 13 you may be asking?! Well my dears let me tell you! >D

#1 The Possessed 
A petite figure paces through a dimly lit room speaking softly to herself, luring you in. Concerned, you inch your way closer to offer help. As you approach her, the pacing stops, but her nonsense words get louder. With her back to you, you call out to her. Suddenly the voice stops and a sinister laugh begins. 

With every quick breath, her body begins to bend backwards and she screams at you in an unknown tongue. POSSESSED! As this supernatural power takes control of her body, she twists and turns until she grasps onto you. The only way to regain her freedom is to expel this force out of her and into another life form. And you seem like a good fit. 
Evil chose her. And she chooses you.
#2 The Torturer
A flickering light bulb and the sound of water draining is your only company in this room. You can’t move. Your hands and legs are bound. How did you find yourself here? More importantly, how do you escape? Duct tape covers your mouth to prevent you from screaming for help. Would anyone even hear? Is anyone here? Footsteps. Then, the door opens. As the light flickers on an off you see a large figure, covered in a long black protective coat. His mask, complete with spikes. Terrified you try everything to scream, to break free. He has you now. You are in his land of pain-inducing devices and this is his art. A frightening connoisseur of cruelty.

 #3 The Hunter
The unnerving sound of leaves crunching behind you. Something just doesn’t feel right. Forcing yourself to believe it is your imagination, you continue on. Your heart beats faster as you try to navigate your way through the maze of dead trees. More sounds creep up behind as you begin to run through this twisted nightmare, tripping over fallen branches. The soundtrack of your heart and heavy breathing is paused when the piercing sound of an arrow speeds past you. Then, another one grazes your leg. As you lay there, startled, you see a figure get closer with a bow and arrow pointed at YOU. To him, you are the game. And he’s winning. 
#4 The Butcher
Momma’s always been proud of her son, the Butcher. He’s always been there to protect her and help with the family business.But all that chopping has kept him from finding a love of his own. Now he’s looking for someone and he’d love to hack his way into your heart.Are you ready to meat your fate?
#5 The Banshee
It was an evening as ordinary as any. Nightfall is settling in as you make your way home from a simple stroll around the neighborhood lake to disconnect from the day. A soft voice humming catches your attention. You glance left and right and see nothing and keep walking. Then in in the distance a figure dressed in white with long, pale hair floats by. You’ve never been one to believe much folklore so you shake it off and pick up the pace blaming your imagination. But again, the voice sings to you. Only louder. Closer. In front of you. The soft voice has changed to a piercing wail and you fall breathless. A visit from The Banshee has sealed your fate. You’ll hear her scream. Right before yours. 
#6 Voodoo Queen
Desiree Yanes came home one night and found her husband with another woman. Enraged, she ran off and disappeared inside the dark swamplands of Louisiana. There, she crafted voodoo dolls and swore then to torment them…with unspeakably sadistic tortures. The Voodoo Queen continues to hide in the swamps of the bayou and perform her twisted Voodoo rituals for others seeking revenge. Brave souls can test their fate at the new house, Death Water Bayou, where the #6 Voodoo Queen mystically transforms lost wanderers into her minions of evil with black magic. Here, her night servants roam with a zombie-like hunger and seek to grow her collection. The darkest evils lurk in shadows. Get out before you fall victim to her spell.
#7 The Surgeon
It was supposed to be a simple procedure. She can fix you with every slow, slice of her scalpel. Don’t let her good looks fool you. Behind that mask is woman out for blood. Unfortunately, you aren’t the one she wanted and she doesn’t have time for you. It’s already too late when you realize the anesthesia hasn’t kicked in. Accident? We don’t think so. She’s ready to operate, even if you aren’t.
#8 The Demon
You are awakened from your deep sleep to realize that the nightmare you thought you would leave is no nightmare at all. It is all very real. The evil spirit grows and roars from the ground in front of you, preventing your escape as he taunts your every motion. His dark, growling voice tempts you. He has an insatiable drive to join the dark side with him. As he gets closer you continue to pretend this is a dream but we all know you’ve done wrong one too many times. This is your last chance. Can you conquer The Demon? He’d like to take you back to his place. In hell.
#9 The Zombie
The epidemic is among us and is quickly spreading. The undead are slowly infesting every major city and small town. Could this be the Zombie Apocalypse? You’ve managed to defend and defeat hordes of zombies as you venture to your next safety spot. In an attempt to hide from a group of undead, you sneak into a cracked door of a building, watching every inch around you. You’ve found yourself in a mortuary, Zombie Mortuary to be exact, where The Zombie and his friends are eager to feed on your fresh flesh.Can you survive? One bite is all it takes.
#10 The Cannibal 
When Herbert Jeffries visited Fiji, he explored the lush highlands, met some hospitable tribesmen and unknowingly sat for a meal with a unique menu. He walked away with an insatiable hunger…Upon returning to the states, he walked away from his architecture practice and became a night watchman at a small New Hampshire morgue - allowing him wholesale access for dining. But his tastes have become more refined and he requires ever fresher flesh – sashimi grade, tartar quality. You.
#11 The Psychopath
After months of testing and diagnosis, solitary confinement in a mental institution was the only option for him. But the institution had different plans for this special patient. He would now become their test subject. What harm could it do? He was already crazy and all they wanted to do was find out why. Upon observation you feel his eyes staring at you. Into you. Bursting wide and never blinking. He murmurs and then screams out and smashes into the walls. You can’t stop staring at him. Your eyes get wider. Never blinking. You murmur to yourself and let out a piercing scream. Has he already gotten into your head? Is it The Psychopath or is it YOU? Never in his right mind. Always after yours.
#12 The Hangman
You’ve heard the rumors of this sinister street. People have disappeared and those who made it out are said to have told tales of torture and torment, dangling from hooks, piercing into their skin. And because of a few wrong turns, you have now found yourself here. Dark. Silent. Alone. You begin to quickly walk back the way you believe you stumbled upon this lane. Two figures appear. You look around for a way out. You run in fear, losing your sense of direction as you dodge objects preventing your exit. In this game, there is only one chance. The Hangman is right behind you. Will you escape before he takes you to his playground? He has one job and does it especially well. 
#13 The Clown
Taunted by others as being a freak and shunned by others, he relied on his toys to keep him company. With no human contact, he became paranoid and very superstitious. As time passed, he began to resent his only companions and thrived on his individuality. Soon, he would take his aggression out on his toys he once dearly loved. And then, on you. But how much harm could he do? Aren’t all clowns here to bring you laughter and joy? Not #13 The Clown. This time, you won’t be laughing. In fact, he finds it funny how incredibly terrified you are.

How bloody freaking awesome?! Ugh can't wait! The reason BG decided to go with 13 is because this is their 13th anniversary of HOS so why not go all out?! So far, from what I have read from the website and the book my Dad gets, this year is going to be boss! 

Part 2 will be up tomorrow morning at 12am EST! Tomorrow's post will be all about the houses!

    One year they let us all dress up at work, so I went for the full head to toe sexy pirate thing. Makeup and all. I was THE ONLY ONE who dressed up! Ay. People are so lame, why not have some fun? It only rolls around once a year!

  4. I love halloween and i have been to howl o scream many many many times but this looks like the scariest yet! by far!!

  5. Me too! I love the entire season! I've gone to HOS for the past... Oh lord I'm not sure how many years, last year was the worst but this year I am so excited! I can't wait to go!

  7. me too! :) I have been going since I was little but sometimes I miss a year and last year was one of them. I had no money haha but this year I'm definitely gonna go!

  8. Last year definitely wasn't worth it to go. It was EXACTLY the same as the previous year. You should pre-buy your tickets or find someone who gets a discount. You can get in cheaper and don't feel like you wasted your money if it does turn out to stink. I've got to finagle my schedule and make sacrifices to go this year for Freaky Preview. The first night falls on the Blogger Preview, then the second night falls on the first day of The Makeup Show. Figures right?!

  9. Yeah, hopefully they let us do it again this year, though I'm not holding my breath! (New bosses.) I'm sure I'll be the only one in costume again. Their loss. :D

  10. oh that's funny! I mean not funny in a ha-ha know what I mean. what's the blogger preview? And yeah I get a discount cause I have a pass Lol last year I was just totally broke. This year I'm not gonna miss it!

  11. Hahaha I definitely know what you mean! I'm not quite sure what it is honestly. I've never gone to one. I think you need to be on the press list though to get in. I'm not sure, I'm waiting for the email and I will let you know! Ohmygod! I know I was flat ass broke last year too! I ALMOST went but didn't want to go without any money. This year, totally not going to miss it

  12. I hope so!! That would be so cool! Hey, at least you have the spirit and know how to be cool! :D
