A Scaredy Cat Visits Legends: A Haunting at Old Town

Hi! My name is Shelley and I am a Scaredy Cat. I don’t like horror movies, and the thought of visiting a Haunted Attraction made me break out in hives until earlier this year.

When I was invited to experience Legends: A Haunting at Old TownI decided that it was finally time to face my fears for the first time!

Scaredy Cat Visits Legends: A Haunting at Old Town Kissimmee

Legends: A Haunting at Old Town is a year-round Haunted Attraction located at  in Kissimmee that combines live actors, detailed sets, and intense special effects to create an atmosphere of fear and fun.

Ashdown and Son’s Undertakers have been offering their funeral services to the people of Old Town since 1889, and unfortunately the living aren’t good for business and sometimes they have to help find new business in unconventional ways.

Guests to the Ashdown and Son’s Undertakers visit in small groups for an incredibly personal tour and intimate exploration of the various levels (and inhabitants) of the building.

“It seems the dead won’t stay dead and those brave enough to venture into the haunted funeral parlor of the Ashdown’s might find themselves trapped between the wickedness of the living and the wrath of the dead.”

I had an absolute blast facing my fears at Legends: A Haunting at Old Town, and now I am ready to start testing my limits further!

Over the years several friends have given me some great advice about making the most of my Haunted Attraction Experience, and here are the ones that worked the best for me!

Tips for Scaredy Cats experiencing a Haunted Attractions from a Scaredy Cat:

1. Don’t go alone – Make sure that you visit a haunted attraction with a group of people that you can trust as you will be in a situation where you won’t be incredibly comfortable at first.

2. Be Prepared – Before you visit your Haunted Attraction, make sure that you visit their site so you have an idea of what you will come face-to-face with and also you’ll find tips to make your experience more enjoyable.

3. Breathe – When you go into a room that really gives you the ‘heebee jeebees’, take an extra moment to take a breath and remind yourself that you are okay and in control.

4. Try to stay calm – Now this seems terribly counterintuitive, but the scream actors are going to go after those that will garner the biggest payoff…so don’t be that guy!

5. So I can’t scream? – NO! Scream, jump, and panic! Just try to make sure you find some way to calm yourself when you feel like you are outside of your comfort zone. When I had moments where I felt out of control, I took a moment and rubbed my hands together to take myself out of the intensity of the moment.

6. Have fun! – Remember you are taking part of this haunted attraction to have fun and bond with your friends.

Madame Tussauds Orlando has rolled out the red carpet for its newest celebrity wax figure with the arrival of Pharrell Williams, 11-time Grammy Award winner, singer, producer, fashion designer, and coach for NBC’s The Voice.

Pharrell is styled in the same outfit he wore when he received his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. He is wearing a jacket from his own brand, Billionaire Boys Club, accessorized with jewelry from Chanel, and his hat is a custom creation from French hat maker Nick Fouquet, which features a match, the fashion designer’s signature trademark. The figure is featured inside the music room of the new wax attraction.

Pharrell’s first figure was unveiled earlier this year at Madame Tussauds New York, styled in his infamous Vivienne Westwood mountain hat from his performance at the 2014 Grammy Awards. Madame Tussauds artists and sculptors spent months on research to create the most accurate representation of the Happy and Get Lucky singer.
