We took 5 of the nieces and nephews to Magic Screams last weekend. We have been the last two years with other couples and had a good time, but apparently is was during the week. This years experience fell into a category with the state fair and Riverfest. It was crazy busy, i.e. 3 hour wait for the haunted houses! This was no concern of mine since I HATE haunted houses but the rides were busy to. They didn't have enough staff so some of the ride were closed and the lines in the others were long because they were rotating workers. The tickets were still full price even though the Crystal Falls part was obviously closed. Needless to say, we will not go back next year but the kids had a blast!
We also had our churches Trunk-or-Treat. Lots of fun. We did a craft project instead of a game. Paper plate spider webs, and it was quite popular.
