Boo! Having an Amazing Time at a Haunted Hayride
Going on a haunted hayride or a haunted house adventure with friends is always fun and exciting. It is a refreshing take on bonding and spending time together, and definitely is a lot more exciting than having a lavish dinner (that blows your budget) or going on a long, long road trip.
Below, we will provide a couple of things to remember when going on a haunted hayride attraction with your friends. Seize the moment and remember to tell your friends about what you will read below to make the most out of the trip!
Let the Nerves Go
It is common and normal to feel nervous before entering a haunted house or riding a haunted hayride, especially if you do not usually go for these types of adventures. However, you should try your best to just let it go and calm yourself down to enjoy the moment.
The actors and the ride are all designed and trained to scare and surprise people, as this is what the attraction is all about. Learn to let go and just surrender to the thrilling environment that you are in. You will definitely have a lot more fun if you do!
Invite Friends who are Willing to Go
Never pressure a friend to come with you to a haunted hayride if they are not willing. They will most likely not have fun, which can ruin the night for everyone. Invite the ones who are willing to go and enjoy the thrill for a fun night out.
Dress for the Occasion
You would never want to wear heels or a dress in a haunted hayride or in a haunted house, as chances are you will trip and have a difficult time. Make sure to wear the most comfortable clothes you can find in your closet so you can enjoy the evening.
We recommend wearing a pair of sneakers, jeans or shorts, a comfortable T-shirt, and a bag to put all of your belongings. It’s still up to your taste and style but remember to dress for the occasion so you can move freely and comfortably.
Don’t be Rude to the Actors
Remember that the actors are only doing their jobs, so do not be rude to them. Never curse at them or speak ill, even if you get surprised or scared of their antics. They are there to scare you, and besides, this is what you paid for!
You should also never attempt to touch the actors or pull and push them when inside the house or during the ride. They would most likely avoid touching you, so try your best to control yourself and avoid hurting or touching the actors, too.
Be Ready to Wait in Line
This one is a given, but we are mentioning it anyway. Expect to wait in line, especially if you are going during the peak season like Halloween. October is always a busy month for haunted hayrides and haunted houses.
Be patient and expect to wait in line with a few other thrill-seekers. This can happen even after you’ve got your ticket, so always be patient and never try to cut in line, as this can only cause trouble.
Lastly, remember to have tons of fun during the ride! You can expect the ride to be full of surprises, which is what you most likely came here for.
