Extreme Haunted House

It was a dark and stormy night. We didn't know what to expect as we raced down I-5 towards the Oregon School for the Deaf. As we approach the large brick institutional building we knew we weren't in for your typical haunted house. Why? Because you can scream all you want and no one will hear you. BOO!

Each Halloween the Oregon School for the Deaf puts on a haunted house as a fund raiser in the basement of one of their buildings. And each year people rave about it. This year it's been raised up a notch with the help of a television show Extreme Makeover and the new king of horror Rob Zombie.

We heard a limited number of VIP tickets were offered online so we bought some and couldn't believe the 1-hour-plus line out front and how we just walked right up, no line, no waiting! Was it spooktacular? Yes it was, although we should have gone on a less busy night. We were ushered in and out so fast we could see what was ahead and anticipated the surprises. But yes, it was pretty darn creepy!
