Great write up! Nice to know my home state of Texas also has quality scare attractions. Even though i live in the far western tip of Texas, closer to the Pacific Ocean than to Galveston, Kemah seems like a nice place to visit if I ever happen to be in Southeast Texas.

I've visited Sea World San Antonio once during their Halloween event and it was excellent and at the time included with park admission.

This article was great, it really made me remember what you stated "you don't always have to spend 60 and go to a big theme park". There are really great walk throughs in old town orlando and va beach. Those are very similar where it is almost black inside and you have to feel around just to make it out.

This was a pretty wonderful surprise this Sunday morning...a new column from Jacob! It was so fun for me, too, because the way Jacob writes it feels like I am right there. So, I got to feel like I was in this park for a bit today instead of being home waiting for my family to get dressed to leave the house this morning. Thanks for the wonderful writing and the mini-adventure, Jacob!!! :)

It's a good review, but there is no oppressive heat in Texas in October. The weather in Galveston this time of year is typically high 70s to low 80s. Come back in the summer if you want to experience heat!

It was hotter yesterday than it was when I was here in August a couple of years ago, so. It was pretty darn hot!

Yeah - yesterday was HOT in Houston, especially for Oct. Today it's dropped about 20 degrees and is in the mid 70s. While Oct tends to be relatively nice, there are often some overly hot days
