DuPont Cellophane ad, 1933 (via Paperstone)
These are a few pictures (not real blood in the pics) from probably one of the most unique haunted houses you will ever see. It’s not your standard — jump scare, strobe lights and people in clown masks — haunted house. This haunted house lets you live out your OWN horror story. It is extremely rough experience so, a waiver form has to be signed. It lasts anywhere from 2-4 hours—sometimes more.
You must be in extremely good health due to the extremely high physical demands. If it gets too much for the person, they can quit. There are a variety of “stories” you can chose to play out. This haunted house is for those people who desire a bigger kind of scare.
Forgot to mention, it’s done for Charity. You can pay in the form of dog food donation.
ALICE ROOSEVELT WAS HARDCORE. “She was known as a rule-breaker in an era when women were under great pressure to conform. The American public noticed many of her exploits. She smoked cigarettes in public, swore at officials, rode in cars with men, stayed out late partying, kept a pet snake named Emily Spinach (Emily as in her spinster aunt and Spinach for its green color) in the White House, and was seen placing bets with a bookie.
When it came time for Teddy Roosevelt’s family to move out of the White House, the president’s daughter, Alice, also buried a Voodoo doll of the new First Lady, Nellie Taft, in the front yard. Which caused her to be banned from the White House. Source
As I have gone alone in there
And with my treasures bold,
I can keep my secret where,
And hint of riches new and old.
Begin it where warm waters halt
And take it in the canyon down,
Not far, but too far to walk.
Put in below the home of Brown.
From there it’s no place for the meek,
The end is ever drawing nigh;
There’ll be no paddle up your creek,
Just heavy loads and water high.
If you’ve been wise and found the blaze,
Look quickly down, your quest to cease,
But tarry scant with marvel gaze,
Just take the chest and go in peace.
So why is it that I must go
And leave my trove for all to seek?
The answer I already know,
I’ve done it tired, and now I’m weak.
So hear me all and listen good,
Your effort will be worth the cold.
If you are brave and in the wood
I give you title to the gold.
And the light at the end of the tunnel is the birth canal.
