Six Flags Fiesta Texas 2016 Fright Fest

Friday, September 23, 2016

I've been a fan of horror movies and scary things for as long as I can remember. Something about scary movies is so funny to me. When most people are screaming I'm usually laughing. One of my favorite shows of all time is American Horror Story. And in college for my design class I had to create a magazine and my entire theme was horror. But put me in a haunted house or in front of a scary costume and I will lose my sh*t! It's just TOO real and too up close and personal for me. I went to the House of Torment in Austin one year and closed my eyes the entire time, hanging onto my friend's hand for guidance. Funny side note, the actors are not supposed to touch you but one of my friends gave them permission to prank me. My friend let go of my hand and when I turned around to regrab it I was holding the hand of a dead pirate. There was screaming and panic. LOL! So when I got invited to go to the early VIP night of Six Flag's Fright Fest I was STOKED. Slightly nervous, but stoked. I honestly was blown away by how elaborate everything was. I mean the costumes, the props, the actors, the affects. Everything was amazing they seriously go all out. There was scary music, strobe lights. and fog. So much fog! And they left the park pretty dark so even just walking between houses was creepy!  Each area had Scare Zones outside. The scariest to me were the zombies and the clowns. Clowns are just eerie no matter what. Jumping around and laughing with their crazy eyes, it's just unsettling. There was one puppet clown who disturbed me the most because he looked so inhuman. I'm sorry to inform you guys that I am a huge wimp and did NOT go into the 3D Clown house. I mean clowns is one thing but in 3D?! I don't think my heart could handle it. But nothing scares me more than...ZOMBIES. I don't know where Six Flag's gets their actors from but these people looked and acted straight out of The Walking Dead. I mean they had the slumped walk and sprint and hissing down to perfection. It was horrifying. And my fear was obvious when about four of them circled me and left me sprinting away. The zombies were part of the RockKill High School haunted house which was by FAR the scariest and most popular attraction! You go through different settings of the school such as the lab and the locker room. The coach was creepy! Buried Alive was probably the most unique attraction. You go "down" an elevator shaft and walk through an old mining shaft. Everyone inside is dead and gears come out at you! My friend said she thought they threw saw dust or something similar on her at one point when she went. All the houses are so different!

Haunted Houses:

Buried Alive

Buried Alive exposes eerie tunnels and passageways long forgotten beneath Crackaxle Canyon. As you descend into the bowels of the abandoned mine via a rusty, corroded elevator shaft, your mistake becomes all-too apparent. Step through the hall of maggots before witnessing the evening finales, a bizarre satanic ritual at the skeleton alter.   

Torture Chamber

Torture Chamber, in Spassburg, is a dark and decaying medieval reminder of how far twisted henchmen will go to extract your most terrifying fears and phobias. Around each horrifying, scream-filled corridor in a castle dungeon, you'' encounter pure evil as deranged sub-humans seemingly enjoy inflicting pain as they mutilate their terrified prey!

RockKill High School

Back from the dead with an even more horrific ending is RockKill High School! Would anyone dare stop by abd visit the most horrific haunted house in RockKill? The walking dead roam the halls of RockKill High School in hopes to tear away at fresh brains and flesh. This gory haunted house features the bloodiest undead creatures waiting for guests at every corner.

Slaughterhouse 6

A barn-full of screams and terror in Crackaxle Canyon where no one makes it out alive! See your food chain too up-close-and-personal, as creatures are led to slaughter where mistakes occur with alarming frequency.  

Fear House 3D

A frighteningly 3D crazed-clown filled maze with nightmareish illusions. A dark, twisted circus of horrors with insane clowns who roam the halls waiting for new souls to prey on. This demented haunted house is a nightmare come to life filled with illusions that will makes even the sanest guests lose their minds.

You can find out all the dates and buy tickets on the Six Flags Fright Fest website!

I'm not sure whose grandma that is but she was brave!

 This witch kept following us around, so I finally told her to hop in the picture with Wilson, haha!

As for the Chupacabras, I thought they were pretty cute in a weird way. They reminded me of Lilo and Stitch. Maybe if Stitch and a gremlin had a baby. And he made this growling noise that sounded like purring! These guys were the most mild and my favorite. Haha!

Fright Fest also has shows and a kid-friendly Looney Tunes trick-or-treat trail. These weren't open yet but I really want to go back to watch the shows! The Haunted Houses are not recommended for children 12 and under, so the Looney Tunes trail would be great for those of you with little ones.

Special thank you to Emerald Kailoni and Six Flags Fiesta Texas for inviting me to the VIP night. I had so much fun and highly encourage all adrenaline and fear junkies to check it out ASAP! You won't regret it, and hopefully you are braver than me. ;) Thanks for reading, and don't forget to suscribe!


Stout's Food Truck

Tuesday, August 23, 2016

I'm fascinated by Food Trucks. I don't know if it's because I watch way too much Food Network in my spare time, or because back home the closest thing to food trucks I had experienced was the beloved Gordito Truck that came to every Western Days. (My home town's yearly festival/fair it's a Southern thing) But something about food trucks is so exciting to me. Maybe it just means I'm a fatty. I'm ok with all of these reasons. Once I moved to San Marcos I was flabbergasted that entire blocks were devoted to food trucks. Same thing in Austin. And now, my home, San Antonio.

I didn't visit them too many times before, let's face it, the convenience of it all means way higher prices than normal. But it's just so darn delicious. I am #blessed and at the same time cursed because there are an array of food trucks that visit my work twice every week. My body and my bank account are not happy about it.

But what can I say, I cannot resist temptation every time, sometimes I cave for the delicious fried foods. I'M NOT THAT STRONG. So I thought I would do my fellow locals, or tourists, a favor and map out my favorite thus far. First on the list, well obviously, it had to be pizza. Pizza is so good I don't think it can really be messed up, but there are an elite few who truly know how to make it magical. Stout's is one place that knows exactly how to do that.

So like a few others, Stout's has a restaurant and is not just a truck. But they do cook all their pizzas fresh in the truck and it amazes me how perfect they always manage to come out. The workers always remember me, I think that's so sweet. You always see people in movies or sitcoms who are regulars somewhere and I guess that's the relationship I am building with Stout's. How adorable.

In the food truck they serve personal pizzas, but these things are more than big enough for me to split with another person. I have tried the Chicken Bacon Ranch, Pepperoni Jalapeno, the Margherita, and the William Chris. The William Chris has roma tomatoes, garlic, shredded mozarella, jalapenos, Stout's signature pepperoni, bacon, Italian sausage, and drizzle of ranch dressing. Amazing.

All of them were equally yummu, but I have to say after last time, the Margherita was the one to really steal the show for me. I loveeeeeeee fresh tomatoes. I love basil. I love mozzarella. All this on my favorite food, pizza, was just a total success. They also have some killer pizza rolls!

What's your favorite food truck? Let me know in the comments or shoot me an email. I love trying new places. Stay tuned for more food truck or restaurant reviews in the future, you can subscribe to my updates in the right hand menu. Thanks for reading!
