I was wondering if anyone knew of a few cool places for adults/teens to go for the Halloween season? "Haunted" houses, "haunted" tours/hayrides, etc... I've heard that Sea World and Six Flags change their park themes to a Halloween theme, but I know these are family parks and I was looking to be really scared! This is my first Halloween in SA and I was wondering if anyone had suggestions? Thanks!
