ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s the time of year that we enjoy being scared. At least, we enjoy it more than we do at other times of the year. Today itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s easy to find things that terrify; news alerts about school shootings or just the thought of Harold Ford, Jr. being elected.
In my search for things I havenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t done yet, I happened across RipleyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Haunted Adventure in Gatlinburg. Making a decision to drop $13+ for a haunted house was discomforting, but IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m certainly glad I did it.
First, I have to say right off the bat that Ã¢â‚¬ËœscaryÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ probably isnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t the right way to describe the experience. Ã¢â‚¬ËœÃ¢â‚¬â„¢Nerve-wrackingÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ or Ã¢â‚¬Ëœhighly intenseÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ better describes the experience.
I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t want to take a chance on giving away any of the surprises, but the actors were top-notch and the experience was a lot of fun.
If you are still looking for something fun to do this Halloween (or any other time of the year), RipleyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Haunted Adventure just might be the thing to do. Just turn left at traffic light number 8 in Gatlinburg, and you cannot miss it.
