Home sweet home, well not so sweet when your house is haunted. All the hype during the spooky season, for teenagers, is going to haunted houses and paying to get scared. That doesn’t sound correct but it is true. “The thrill and adrenaline of being scared is the best part of a haunted house,” said junior Addie Butler.

Many students took the opportunity to to go on group dates or trips with friends to haunted houses that would scare them as much as possible. “I went with Daxton, Frances, Hunter, Darbi and Martina. I loved going with friends and definitely the women of course. It was a lot of fun, especially because it was a date,” said senior Tyler Hodges.

While many sought out hunted houses to spend time with friends and get scared for this past Halloween season, others found their experience a little too scary. “I would say i was at an 11 on a scale from 1-10 on how scared I was! My favorite part was probably when we reached the end because it was a little too spooky for me. I would recommend others to go, but only if you have someone to hold hands with,” said sophomore Morgan Scaffide.

When Halloween ended, the farmers cut the corn mazes and the haunted houses closed their doors, but the memories and fear felt by those who went to them will last all year.

SMALL AND FRIGHTENING: Acting like they’re not scared at all, senior David Castillo and his girlfriend Morgan Scaffide stand next to one of the scares at the Haunted Star Maze and Forrest. “The best was hearing Dave scream,” said Scaffide.
