Zombie Hayride

My nephew is a Halloween baby so we normally go out and celebrate with him during the month.  For the past several years we have taken him to Rippavilla and walked through the corn maze, drank hot chocolate and walked through the hay maze.  One year, there was a man there with a large telescope and we got to see really cool stars and planets.  This year we mixed it up a bit and went to Millers Thrillers Zombie Hayride.  We had a lot of family there which always makes for a fun night!  We met early at Jenn and Chad's house where Chad grilled yummy burgers for us.  We got to Miller's Thrillers about 20 minutes before it opened.  We didn't mind the wait because we were rockin' out to Skrillex, an impromptu family dance party is always a blast!  On the ride they separated  you into two teams-Black Opps or Code Red ( I kept saying Cone Head).  You had 75 paint balls and for an extra 10 bucks you got an extra 75-Ben and I split an extra cup full.  The ride was pretty short and the zombies were far away, but it was still a lot of fun.  It was just nice to be out with family.  They also had an illusionist show, a man on stilts and zombies walking around trying to scare you, as well as a trash can drum show.  This was cool and they even invited Ben onto the stage to play the drums and dance for the audience.  He rode the train a bit-it was hilarious!  Afterwards, we went back to Chad and Jenn's and lit the fire pit and roasted marshmallows. It was a great bonding moment-I love spending time with my family and they all love Ben! He fits in perfectly with our family, he cracks everyone up and talks music and football with the men-folk.  Here's some pictures of our adventures....

*If you go, my suggestion is to get there about 20 minutes early.  As we were leaving the line was extremely long, stretched into the parking area. Also, starting at 6pm they do a less scary version for children.
