Last chance to apply to be Theme Park Insider's Halloween correspondent

May 9, 2010, 10:04 PM · Hello Theme Park Insider readers,

This is the final call for readers who want to apply for the freelance gig to help Theme Park Insider cover theme park Halloween events this fall. It's a 12-week commitment, starting the week of Aug. 8. You'll be writing one blog post a week for the site, including advance features on this year's upcoming major Halloween events, wrapping up with trip reports from a few of the bigger events. Details here. Familiarity with Theme Park Insider, our readers and our style, is a must. Previous writing or blogging experience strongly preferred. It's a freelance gig, so there's some money and covered expenses in this, though not enough to be worth anyone giving up a day job... Sorry :-(

If you're Halloween/horror fanatic, who loves theme parks and wants to show people what they can expect from this year's events, I want to hear from you! We've got a large audience to offer, and for the right person, this gig could be an enormous amount of fun. (I'll be following up with applicants later this week.)

I am in Washington DC Area (as you know) and with my centralized location can cover a few of the events. I especially could cover places like Six Flags America, Six Flags Great Adventure, Knoebles, Lakemont, Kennywood and her sister parks, Busch Gardens Williamsburg, King Dominons, Cedar Point, Holiday World and King's Island.

I have been to the Kennywood Phantom Fright Nights (LOVE IT) a couple of times and also attended the Cedar Point Halloween (Very Good) event. I have also attended Knotts Scary Farm (The Best) but the west coast would be a little stiff for me. However I would be willing to also cover Orlando.

My husband and I have worked on magazines in the past, so writing comes easy for us. I also had a personal blog on film (samples?) for two years and consider myself a horror movie geek. I am also a dark ride and walkthrough enthusiast and go out my way to find rare ones like The Old Mill and Noah's Ark. I am a regular of the sites (Western PA) and though I am not currently a member at this time. Since I am a federal employee, I have as flexable scheduel and money issues are not a problem right now. Let's talk
