*****THIS GIVEAWAY IS OVER: OUR WINNER IS Tara Christensen*****
Smarties, we are SUPER excited to share the scariest of scary Halloween giveaways with you! Our friends at Scarrigan Farms want to scare the tar out of one lucky (or unlucky:-) Smarty family on Halloween weekend (Thursday to Monday).
The Smarty teen crew checked out Scarrigan Farms to see what it’s all about. I’m telling you, this is a GOODIE! It is perfectly scary, if that makes any sense at all. The haunted trail begins with goggles to enhance the effects and walking through a winding maze with haunted clowns and perfectly executed scenes out of some of your favorite horror movies. I personally was creeped out when Jason Voorhees chased me for three solid minutes breathing down my back in the dark and scary woods. I’ve had nightmares about Jason since I was 12, and I just revisited them at Scarrigan Farms! The best and scariest part in my opinion is the Terror Bus setting. You have to walk in through the back while all the scary people are hiding in the seats and waiting for you at the front with chainsaws. It’s legit and 100% scary – it’s AWESOME!
The biggest question that I’ve gotten asked is this: “is it scarier than Scarowinds?” My answer is yes, but it’s not too scary for anyone who can handle Scarowinds. I’m sticking with Scarrigan Farms reco below:
This is not a trail for kids. If you’re under 12 come back when you’re old enough. We’ll be waiting. If someone hasn’t peed in their pants by the end of the night we know we haven’t done our job. ~Scarrigan Farms
You know your kid. If he/she is afraid of his own shadow, then this is not the place for you.
A bonus for a Scarrigan Farms trip is the “after party.” They have a bonfire and ‘smores by the quarry with music and your teens can hang out for as long as you like. This is the perfect place to get your heart rate lowered and to enjoy the natural scenic beauty of this gem right in our backyard.
