Dark Harbor is back for 2018 and we have to say, the event is better than ever.
Each and every maze has undergone some amazing changes, some very drastic and two mazes that were constantly struggling to find their way, found their way in a BIG way this year.
Let's head in and get the ship scared out of us!!

Welcome to Dark Harbor!!
The Captain is waiting for you!!
As always, the Ringmaster was on hand for the festivities!! She's the best!!
Speaking of the Ringmaster ... we got the chance to go through Lullaby with her. Yes, Lullaby, which definitely was an interesting experience as you'll see below.
Even the stages are bigger this year!!
Deadrise is back, our favorite dead sailors are up to no good again.
Our favorite end-of-maze moments are always found at Deadrise.
Although, having the entry and exit in the same place means people are pretty much expecting it at this point. Still, we managed to get some great reaction shots below.
Feast was back this year, in a new location and was a lot of fun yet again!! Crawling through the grinder was interesting as always.
The food options were MUCH improved this year!!
Watch out as you head into B340
Speaking of B340, wow, talk about a huge plus over the previous year. Simply fantastic and is not to be missed.
Circus was back, we tried to find the hidden bar like last year but it was not to be.
Our early season vote for best year-to-year improvement of an existing maze HAS to go to Intrepid. This one has really struggled to find it's way.
We are VERY happy to say Intrepid has found it's way. And it may have been our absolute favorite maze of the entire event. It's THAT good. Kudos to Jon Cooke and his amazing team for breathing new life into this maze.
Thanks to Queen Mary for another fantastic year of Dark Harbor!! We hope to be able to return again before the season is over.

In just it's 3rd year, Midsummer Scream has taken it's place as one of the most organized, fun, stress free and amazing conventions of the year. Last weekend we were on-hand all weekend to check out all of the amazing panels, the Hall of Shadows and just a fun time with all our haunted friends.
Let's head into the fog ...

An all new panel this year from Warner Brothers and their Horror Made Here event
The excitement for this event is palpable, the room was very full for a first year panel
We also had a chance to talk with Jon Braver from Delusion
The last panel of Midsummer Scream was a unification of Halloween Horror Nights on both coasts. No big announcements, but the 90 minute chat was amazing!!
Had a great time talking with John, Chris and Michael where we talked about non-IP mazes, non-existent fights and kick ass shoes.
A behind the scenes look at how the magic happens.
Thanks Midsummer Scream for another amazing year, already counting down the days until next year.
