  1. Default Fire in the Castle

    In the latest issue of the Darkride and Funhouse Enthusiasts quarterly mag Barrel 'O Fun, there is an interesting article commenting on a documentary which was recently done about the '84 Six Flags trailer haunt fire in the Haunted Castle.

    I recall when I first came across Haunted Attraction Magazine many years ago, they were in the middle of a multi-part story on this tragically infamous fire. As most are already aware of, this unfortunate disaster was the harbinger of stricter regulations for dark attractions everywhere.

    I'm very interested in getting this documentary. Does anyone here know anymore about this movie and/or how to get ahold of a copy of it?

    Didn't have this information with me earlier when I posted:

    I believe the documentary is called "Doorway to Hell...The mystery and controversy surrounding the fire at the Haunted Castle", but I'm not 100% sure. (I know that Doorway to Hell was a sister attraction at Casino Pier) The film is by Peter James Smith. Anybody else know anything about this or it's availability?

    That is really hysterical, John!
    (By the way, is that you selling that wedding dress?hahaha!)
    It's just a little pricey for the Lady-in-white, the resident ghost here.

    Not me! But I could use the dress for my haunt this year! They are slightly cheaper at the Thrift stores (although their prices have certainly raised).

    A couple of weeks ago I merely glanced at a wedding dress hanging in a thrift store and the one old woman working there got nasty with me!
    "The men's clothes are UPSTAIRS, SIR!"
    She said in her best 85 year-old little old lady squeaky cartoon-character voice.
    She seemed to have a very real air of evil about her, maybe that Crawzy Pussycat bopped her on the bean too hard during one of those cartoons?
    I didn't see any helium she could have been sucking on in the corner where she had her chair wedged up against two walls, "Nobody gets behind HER!"
    Strange day all around! I just clicked my silver slippers together and went home!

    I have to admit that I like living here in Utah because we have temple dresses ... looks simular to wedding dresses but you can buy them for $5.00 on average

    Why so cheap? Even if they are extremely common, I would think they would still be worth more than $5.00(or are these what is left of the virgin sacrifices, I can see it now, this huge pile of dresses and nobody left to wear them!) hahaha!
