One thing I found out when I visited Charlotte, North Carolina with my parents last year is that they really enjoy scaring people at Halloween. And from what I understood some of their attractions are open at other times of the year too. I’ve never really enjoyed ghosts or haunted houses but since it was late October when we were there my parents really insisted that we check out some of these places. I tried to tell them that I was too old but they knew better.
I had always had a bit of hesitation when it came to haunted houses, supernatural themed movies and other scary things. In fact, when I was little I used to try and pretend I was sick on Halloween, but unfortunately I’m an only child and my parents love Halloween. They always turn our garage into a haunted house and this alone scared me every night. Meanwhile, this was also part of the reason they insisted on going to some of the haunted places in Charlotte. We had to be there, well my dad did for a business trip, and they couldn’t do our own haunted house so they insisted that we go to some in Charlotte. I tried to act interested, but some of the places really are scary.
So, we went to this place called The Campground Massacre. I thought that it might be kind of campy, no pun intended, because of the name and had hopes that it would just be silly. But no way, no chance, that place was frightening as heck. It was like you were actually existing in some creepy gruesome horror movie and I felt like I was in one of those bad dreams that I couldn’t get out of. Really, it was horrible. My parents had to call and tell there friends about this place as they really loved it. And if you like places like this you can probably get information on it from any of the hotel lobbies and other places like the Internet.
