This trip was a last minute trip which was completely needed.
We've been going back & forth on Howl-O-Scream and finally decided on Wednesday that we would make it happen.
So Saturday morning we loaded up the car and head to Tampa.
During the day we rode all the coasters. Thankfully the weather felt amazing & it wasn't too crowded. After a few hours at the park we headed back to the hotel to check in and rest until it was time to be terrified!
As we walked into the park there was a ton of free standing doors & scary workers freaking everyone out. Last time I ever walked through a haunted house I found the first emergency exit door and bolted for it! I was probably 13 at the time. I've never had the urge to go back through the haunted houses until I met Josh. He loves this type of stuff.
The first two houses we walked through I headed Ashli's hand and clung to her the entire time. Besides the fact we were on the people in front of us we knew what was coming. Then the guys wanted us to walk with them but wanted us to walk ahead of them! Yeah talk about scared! There was a handful of times I screamed, jumped, ran in place because I didn't have anywhere else to go, dunked, held my face in my hands, etc. but I absolutely loved it!
We ended up getting the fast pass for the 7 houses and were able to go on each ride once with it which is worth the money. Most of the lines to the houses were over an hour wait & the park was only opened until 1:30.
The next day we woke up way too early and headed to Orlando. We're season ticket holders to both parks but we've never seen the new penguin exhibit. It's an actual ride through Antarctica then they turn you around and open the doors to these adorable little penguins! I gasped when I saw them and fell completely in love with how cute they were. It was 28 degrees in their "home" & the water was around 40 degrees.
This weekend was the most fun we've had in a while. & it definitely did us good to get away from the hustle and the bustle.
These little guys make me so happy!
