Ghost Lake 2010 Adventure – Part 4-4

Posted by LOTGK on October 21, 2010

Doing Sexy Halloween Since 1998

Fear Level Six: The Fog

Ghost Lake - The Fog

We only had three haunts left as we headed toward The Fog, a haunt Ghost Lake had the previous year. The sign on the tree was plain and clear. The Fog was thatta way.

The Fog

If you have read the 2009 or 2008 Ghost lake edition, the Fog is mostly dark, with spooky music piped in and of course plenty of thick cold fog. It was set up as a maze and you had to concentrate to navigate through. Of course there were actors inside to scare and grab you.

Outside The Fog

The haunt took approximately 15 minutes to navigate through. At the exit, we spied this monster hanging out.

Halloween Chainsaw

As we were walking across the Midway to the next haunt, The Black Vortex, a masked lunatic carrying a chain saw appeared and ran after several screaming teenage girls. (God, I love Halloween)
Fear Level Seven: The Black Vortex

Ghost Lake Vortex 2010

Basically fear level 7 was one Halloween prop, the spinning vortex. (A large slowly spinning barrel with pin lights in the ceiling.) This haunt was a very quick one. A matter of minutes we were done and walking towards the eight and final haunt level of Ghost Lake, The Blue Streak Ghost Coaster.
Fear Level Eight: Blue Streak Ghost Coaster

Ghost Coaster

We knew where the last haunt was. The Blue Streak coaster is one of the Grassy Knoll Institute’s rocket scientists favorite rides. You can see Ghost Lake jazzed up the name and sign renaming the coaster The Ghost Coaster for the month of October.

Ghost Lake Coaster

It is pretty hard to “ghost” out a roller coaster with Halloween props but a few well placed skeletons and lights were well received.

Private Ride

After we rode the Coaster three times in the front seat, I have had enough for the evening. However, the lead scientist, my son Patrick wanted to ride again. This time he chose the last seat in the train. (Note that we were given a private ride)

Blue Streak

A minute later the train started to leave the station. Patrick seated in the back car. I will say, I have been on perhaps 200 roller coasters in my time, and have ridden the Blue Streak more than 100 times, but never in pitch darkness. Let me explain, it wasn’t like riding coasters at night where there were lights on the midway, the tracks, and around the ride. This was pitch black from start to finish.

It was so dark, we could not see the first hill, or the second, or any of them for that matter. Imagine riding a coaster with your eyes closed. That was the feel of the Ghost Coaster. This haunt was by far the best part of Ghost Lake.

Watch this video one more time. Notice that when Patrick left the platform he was in the back car but when it pulls back into the station, he is sitting in the front car.
Fear Level Food Court: Hot Dogs And French Fries

No haunted attraction is complete without sampling the Midway fried food and confections offered to the public. We stopped at two places, once early in the haunt, and once after we had finished.

Mr. Fries

At the center of the Ghost Lake Midway, was the mecca of French fries. Being hungry, we opted for the large size, not the super size, which was the bucket of fries, but the large size. The cost was $6.00 dollars.

Large Fries

As the fries were cooking, a conversation was struck talking about Erieview Park, the old Geneva On The Lake park, as the fry operator was a veteran of the park and knew plenty of stories. It was a very pleasant conversation.

As you can see, the fries were put in a large holder and wrapped in foil and laid on the counter. Being no tables or chairs, i moved them away from the front window to the side so other patrons could order. We continued our conversation until the fries were gone. I must say, they were damn good. Almost Idora Park level, and that my friends, is a big deal.

Beach Club

At the end of the evening, we stopped at the Beach Club for a late night snack. I ordered a hot dog and a large fry. Here is the hot dog. A $2.00 hot dog. The cook wasn’t anywhere as talkative as the guy at Mr. Fries. In fact, he barely grunted. The dog was standard, edible, and hot.

Greasy Fries

And here is the large order of fries. Yes, the fries were the same cost, $6.00 for the large. But upon inspection, considerably less than Mr. Fries large order. (Just saying) They were well cooked, crunchy enough and for a Halloween haunt, very adequate.

We were finished with Ghost Lake for 2010. I filmed a minute of the Midway as we walked out so you could get a small idea of the atmosphere of Ghost Lake.

The Grassy Knoll Institute enjoyed our time at Ghost Lake Conneaut haunted adventure this October. We recommend you pay a visit to Ghost Lake this weekend and next to get the full fright effect of Halloween.

Happy Halloween – Samhain

    How did you get a private ride on the roller coaster when there were so many people waiting in line. I would be pissed. Unless you paid extra for that. Did you?

  2. Creepy Gals said

    And how did you start at the back and wind up in the front.

  3. Damon said

    I love haunted houses. this one looks great. 8 places all in one place. How long does it take to go through all 8?

    • LOTGK said

      It was very enjoyable. It took us about 2 hours to go through them all, but we were in no hurry. Depending on the crowd, it could take more or less time.

  4. Gumby said

    Excellent video of patrick starting in the back and finishing in the front. I know how he did that.

  5. Gates said

    A coaster in the dark, Disney has coasters in the dark, and other amusement parks to. Whats so big a deal as this one?

    • LOTGK said

      The difference, it’s wide open, no seat belts, or harnesses, just a wide open seat. Those who have ridden the coaster before, know what to expect. However, in the dark, you cannot tell or judge where the hills begin which is very intense.

    The only rider on the coaster, in pitch black, in October, now thats choice. Couldn’t ask for more.
