My explorations of SecondLife’s Haunted Houses of 2021 continues with Once Upon a Spell. I went to the last page of the list of Haunted Houses on the Destination Guide, simply because I don’t like being totally conventional.
The arrival point is at the entrance to a kind of mystical forest setting with thankfully just a couple of boards for their inworld group and Flickr (regular readers will know how much I hate lots of clutter at an arrival point). As I went forward I came to some autumnal red and gold leaved trees, I was immediately reminded of Pumpkin Town a location from last year.
Coming out of these trees, through a tunnel I arrived at a campfire in what felt like a more bayou swampy kind of place, suggested by the rickety shack on the other side of a small stretch of water.
As I continued into the forest I encountered another shack, but this one in much better condition, evidently maintained by the resident witch.
Just past here are two rows of pumpkins forming a path uphill towards a house, but I went the other way into the green darkness of the forest. This took me to another larger area of water, bordeed by waterfalls and a bridge crossing it at the far end.
I followed the lakeshore til I came to the bridge then turned back towards the pumpkin-bordered path and the house at it’s end.
TRIGGER WARNING: SPIDERS and CLOWNS BELOW!
(Yeah I know, it made me cringe typing that, why would you be reading a post about a Halloween location and not expect such things? But I know people that are sensitive to them.)
Around the back of the house is the bridge across the lake I saw earlier,at the far end of which is a big spiders web you walk through to get to the next area to explore.
Through here it opens up into another large area with a big top, a cemetery, a haunted mansion and a ghost train.
The haunted mansion was the most tempting to me and turned out to be the largest part of this area.
I’ve not shown everything here, your visit wouldn’t be fun if I did!
