About two decades ago, I first visited Six Flags Magic Mountain's Fright Fest with no idea what to expect. I didn't even know what a "haunt" or a "maze" was, never having been through a haunted house. It impressed me so much that it inspired me to visit haunted houses as often as possible thereafter.
