Spooky is the most neglected of the five basic human emotions: spooky, joy, sorrow, grouchy, and wet. Get horror glands pumping with today’s Groupon: for $29, you get an outing for two to HorrorscapeS Macabre Carnival at Central Florida Zoo & Botanical Gardens on Saturday, October 1, from 8 p.m. to 1 a.m. in Sanford (a $58 value). The outing includes:
- Admission for two (a $40 value)
- Two beers (a $2 value)
- Six game tickets (a $6 value)
- Horrorscapes Relish the Fear DVD (a $10 value)
As dusk descends on the Central Florida Zoo grounds, live DJs lure magicians, stilt walkers, and fire dancers out of the shadows of the HorrorscapeS Macabre Carnival to imbue the evening with an ethereal aura. Guests can discover future trends in vampire-novel sales at the fortuneteller booth, and ward off the undead at the zombie shooting gallery. The evening also veers toward risqué realms, with burlesque performers and a Sexy Costume Fashion Show that melds sexy with spooky. Attendees flaunt chill-inducing ensembles at the costume contest, and carnival fare tunnels toward bellies with the help of beer and other spirits. Additionally, guests can tote home a HorrorscapeS Relish the Fear DVD that intersperses shots of fog-laced graveyards with even more terrifying shots of Mr. Freeze's air-conditioning bill.
