Corn Mazes

Last night my friend Liz invited me and Chauncey to go with her and a group of people to go to a haunted house. We were going to go to one in Lehi, but her friend drove by and said it looked super lame (and it did, not worth the 16 bucks that we would've spent.) Anyways, so we met there anyways and decided to go to a corn maze. I had never been so I was really excited. We went to Cornbelly's at Thanksgiving Point. It was SO fun! Loved every second of it. As some of you may know, I get scared so easily. I am very jumpy, which is why Chauncey sometimes calls me Jumpy Jenni. Anyways, we bought the "screaming'" package, which was for the regular corn maze, and the four haunted attractions (haunted corn maze, the monster, the cage maze and the castle of chaos maze.) We did the corn maze first, and saved the haunted stuff for last. We tried to do the 30 minutes or more one, but we ended up finishing it in less. Then we played on this hay maze for little kids, but afterwards I was super itchy. I grew up on a ranch and everything, but we never had that kind of hay (straw hay) we usually had green hay and alfalfa. So I was crazy itchy, but after a little while it went away. Then we did the haunted corn maze. BY FAR THE BEST OF ALL THE HAUNTED ATTRACTIONS. I was so scared! I haven't been to a haunted house in like two years so this was a good one to go to. They had the chainsaw guy, the girl from the ring (she didn't jump out, but she was still scary since that's one of the scariest movies i've ever seen.) and a bunch of other scary people. The one that got me the best was this creepy guy that came up behind me and made this creepy grudge/alien noise. I screamed so loud! There were some parts i didn't like though, like this weird inflatable squishy thing. It was basically two inflatable bouncy walls(?) and you had to walk through it, they squished you and you couldn't see anything. I get claustrophobic really easily so I was kind of freaking out on the inside, but I didn't want to seem weird so I held it in and told myself to breathe and calm down. It was a good thing Chauncey was there holding my hand because otherwise I would've had a small panic attack. So after the haunted corn maze we went to the haunted circus, and that wasn't so bad, except there was this super creepy clown kid that followed us around and got all up in my face a lot. (For those of you who don't know, I'm seriously afraid of clowns. probably my third biggest fear.) So then we went in the monster thing. (it was a big inflatable monster and we went inside it's stomach and stuff) we probably would've been scared more if we stayed on the right path, but chauncey kept taking us through the places that the scary people go through so we didn't get as many people scaring us. After that was the castle of chaos maze, that was scary just because it was so quiet, seriously. then we ran into this group that was lost and we thought they were scary people and they backed us into a corner but they were all just regular people. The last one was the chain maze, that one only had like two scary people and was just kinda lame. So my favorite of the night was the haunted corn maze. SO much fun!

Anyways, it was pretty good for my first corn maze experience!

P.S. Next weekend we get to do trunk or treat! I'm excited because it'll be the first time we are on the other side of trunk-or-treating (handing out the candy instead of taking it) So it'll be fun to see all of the kids in their costumes. :)
