Putting the "Wee!" in Halloween

Miamians tend to be a bit jaded when it comes to Halloween, perhaps due in part to the fact that we see so many sexy cops, sexy nurses, sexy witches, and, well, just plain sex all year round. The Festival of Souls at Gulfstream Park is the perfect place to get back to your creepy, heebie jeebie, thrills and chills, Halloweenie roots. First we went through the Demon Mansion, which is 8,000 square feet of sheer awesomeness. The production value is high and both the sets and the costumes make it easy to suspend disbelief as you make your way through the confusing maze. Be advised -- it is not a short walk through. Some haunted houses last only 3-5 minutes, and although we were too scared to time our walk through Demon Mansion, there was no 'oh God, that's it?' feeling when you walk through the exit of smaller haunted houses. Each scene was, ahem, killer, and certain scenes lingered afterwards. Demon Mansion is almost on par with Universal Halloween Horror Nights haunted houses. (Pro tip: Beware of the toilet.)
