Nico’s Scared And Sweaty: First El Paso KLAQ Haunted House
One thing I will OPENLY admit is that I am an adrenaline junky. But, I really don't like the adrenaline rush that comes with being jump scared to death! Which is why I have avoided, at all costs, going to a haunted house for most of my entire life.
Growing up, my brother would hide behind corners and under furniture, just to pop out and scare me. So you can see why I hate jump scares. Not once, not twice, but all the time... years of this growing up! We'd both also do this to my mom because she has a hilarious scream, AND we thought it was funny.... She did not, however....
This continued into adulthood, and to this day I avoid scary movies with any gore, senseless violence, or... jump scares. AND, I avoid haunted houses at all costs! That was... until 2019 when Buzz convinced me to go to the KLAQ haunted house 'CarnEvil.' I gathered my nerves popped a few CBD gummies, and headed over with him and a video crew to capture the whole experience.
As you can see in the YouTube video below I was not having a good time. Those were legitimate screams, legitimate fear, and legitimate PTSD after this entire experience. At one point they capture me SO sweaty from the entire run.
I needed a bathroom badly, you know to wipe my sweat, and to use the facilities. Buzz thought it was funny and confuses me by pointing somewhere else. Overall, it was not a great time. But I'm glad I did it because it's an experience I can now say I've had ,and one that hopefully make some other people laugh. Cuz that's really what it's all about. Not the scares.
