It's that time of year again, where shrieks, shrills, and chainsaws fill the night air. So you're looking to find local haunts to scare the bejeebers out of you, or maybe you've got $20 burning a hole in your pocket? Website GooGhoul will help you find local Halloween events such as, Haunted houses, mazes, hayrack rides (even haunted mini Golf), all sorted by distance based on your zip code.
The site lists reviews of the haunt along with directions so you can evaluate whether the event is worth your time and money. They also allow you to submit your own event to be listed in their search results as well.
Though being a bit disappointed with the results GooGhoul gave for my local area (5 events in a 50 mile radius), it almost inspires to me to create the "JoeSchmidt.com Experience" as my very own Halloween event. You know, charge $5 a "head" to have people run around my darkened backyard as I chase them with a chainsaw (chainless of course). Maybe for $10 and a signed waiver (prepared by my legal department) I'd do it with the chain on. But... I'm guessing that might not fly to well with the neighbors.
