Explore the haunted theme park at Laurel’s Halloween Nightmare, with 19 horror movie scenes from classics like Frankenstein to modern horror like Saw. Scares lurk around every corner in this dazzling monument to all things frightful. Creator Laurel Bradders (a.k.a. Baby Ghoul) is a Halloween fanatic, telling us “This is my fourth annual haunted theme park. I try to go bigger every year and top what I did the prior season.” This labyrinthine region changes stylistically as you go deeper, encompassing everything from Medieval castles to whimsical spookiness to futuristic nightmares. Don't be afraid to get lost: teleport portals will transport you from scene to scene. The dedication is real, with Laurel putting in almost a year's worth of planning into each build: “My friends think I am crazy but, starting every January, I begin buying and collecting new ideas for the upcoming Halloween season. I get custom work done by script and mesh creators in SL.” As thrilling as Laurel’s work is, the inspiration comes from a poignant effort to memorialize someone very special. Laurel explains, “I do it for my mom really. I lost her in 2015 and she was a huge horror genre fan. We used to watch all the spooky movies together and decorate as much as possible for Halloween. She made it great every year!” This labor of love is beyond impressive, with references to “Dracula to Kong vs. Godzilla with some Freddy Krueger and Pinhead thrown in as well!” Halloween is one of the biggest events in the virtual world, and you don’t want to miss out on the hard work of a Resident who is clearly an expert on the subject. If you don’t know where to start, Laurel has groups on Facebook and Discord that can connect you with others in search of a good fright! Come see Laurel’s Halloween Nightmare for yourself, if you think you’ll live to tell the tale.

We have entered that time of year where unforeseen events can occur in even the most tranquil Linden suburbs: this week’s Destination Guide video explores the Halloween Haunted Neighborhood. One of the many benefits that Premium account holders can receive is a land allotment to use for a Linden Home. These neighborhoods have been landscaped to perfection, the transportation is smooth, and the locals are friendly. In most Linden Home areas, waterfront homes are available, as are single-family homes with beautiful yards, and there are plenty of customization options. But somehow, just a few days ago, this dreamscape has become a nightmare that Residents can’t wake up from. It is immediately apparent to anyone familiar with the Millbank region that the atmosphere has been altered. The light is subdued, and a gloomy fog hangs about. Strange noises can be heard in every direction, ranging from a whirring chainsaw to screams dappled with eerie childrens’ laughter. Today's video follows a masked character with bulging eyes and an unnerving smile as he prowls the streets, lurks in a derelict carriage, and watches an unsuspecting couple with his unblinking gaze. We are given clues as to what heinous acts may have taken place here, but the mystery remains unsolved. A stately home sits with an open door and ominous red light emanating from the windows. A cemetary can be found with creatures bursting through the cement. Are you courageous enough to find out for yourself what happened here in the Millbank region? Will you explore alone, or bring a friend? Visit the Halloween Haunted Neighborhood today, and don’t forget to bring a flashlight! Halloween Haunted Neighborhood The Millbank region has undergone a spooky overhaul, with numerous Linden Homes getting a haunted horror theme. Visit the many haunted houses, see the scary sights!
