corrals five different haunted attractions onto one patch of terrifying farmland. The experience begins in the Haunted Barn, which echoes with strange noises and screams even as visitors pass through to buy their tickets. An enormous skull sits atop the barn, belching clouds of fog and staring balefully at passersby with glowing green eyes. But the skull's frightful gaze is nothing compared to the horrors that await guests beyond the haunted barn. In Crazy Clowns 3D, for example, visitors don a pair of 3D glasses and delved into a psychedelic trip through ultra-bright, horrifyingly realistic imagery. Bloody Mary's Revenge, meanwhile, features Hollywood-quality special effects; in fact, it's a replica of the Halloween attraction created for Universal Studios Orlando. In addition to gore and scares, Bloody Mary's Revenge features actor-operated, hybrid multi-motion animatronics, which, in layman's terms, translates to "people inside scary robots that come after you".
While special effects terrify and astound, they're hardly the only impressive scare on the Ranch. The classic Haunted Hayride, for instance, takes visitors through the Forest of Fear, where ghouls lurk in the fog beneath the limbs of 30-foot tall animated creatures who summon pyrotechnic fire. If visitors survive the other attractions, then all that stands between them and the exit is the Funny Fun House. This classic circus attraction has reflection-mutating mirrors, a spinning black hole tunnel, and an upside down room. Once guests have righted themselves, the attraction deposits them at the Halloween gift shop, where they'll have the opportunity to take revenge on the spooks by buying a few and forcing them to sing show tunes on the ride home.
Since it began in 1893, the Cuyahoga County Fair has only missed three years: 1932, during the Great Depression, and 1942?43, during World War II. Every other year, local residents have flocked to the fairgrounds to sample the foods, ride the rides, and soak up entertainment that grows more diverse with each passing summer. Beyond a lineup of main events?such as concerts and motor-sports exhibitions?every day of the fair is an opportunity to zip along rides, see animals, and pit yourself against contests, including watermelon- and Ferris-wheel-eating competitions.
Relaxing music, a beverage bar, and walls painted in soothing tones jostle for the attention of clients as they walk through the doors of Sassi Nails Salon. At a pedicure or manicure workstation, technicians render nail treatments including shellac manicures, spa pedicures, and polish changes. The Sassi team pays particular attention to sanitization, holding themselves to the strict standards of the Ohio State board and the world’s most scrupulous mother-in-law—Harry Potter’s aunt, who they actually have on staff.
At American Bouncers, sock-footed tykes flex their quads and imaginations as they navigate an indoor inflatable adventure land. Puffed-up castles, slides, and Berkshire mansions boomerang with lads and lasses during regular open-bounce sessions, birthday parties, and special events. Junior bounce sessions offer parents an opportunity to leap alongside their tots in the buoyant abodes, and the arena’s concession stand replenishes bouncers with kid-friendly nibbles. The company also leases a selection of bounce houses, concession machines, and party supplies for special events or moon-landing reenactments.
