Hello all, and welcome aboard the first official post from the Ghost Ship. Ooooh… creepy, no?
You can see my credentials on my bio page (I’ve written… a lot… for a long time), but it is an understatement to say I’m thrilled to be writing for the Morey’s Piers Beachfront Blog and a new audience. (My old one tuned me out YEARS ago…)
As longtime writer, starting with my own original comic book and horror stories in my pre-and-post-adolescence and continuing into what I now call my semi-adulthood (can anyone who manages a haunted attraction for a living really be considered an “adult?” But I digress…), it’s nice to reach out to new sets of eyes.
But, to the point.
What’s going on with Ghost Ship 2011 you might ask? Well, while I don’t want to give a way TOO much, I can tell you that there are plenty of changes afoot. Ace carpenter Mike Monaghan and the Ghost Ship 2011 Renovation Crew (which includes the paint-stained author of this piece) is hard at work installing some fun new surprises and painting, painting, and more painting (I’m the team painter, as it requires the least complicated manual skill set).
It is our goal to more fully immerse you, our valued guests, into the Ghost Ship experience. How are we doing this you might ask rhetorically? Well, you’ll just have to come back and see for yourselves. I literally cannot find the words (seriously, my vocabulary is extremely limited) to explain it.
While last season was, by all accounts, a creative success, with the Morey’s, good enough is never good enough. So, onward ho!
In addition to a whole new costume and make-up scheme, there will also be a number of physical changes to the maze route itself. But again, I don’t want to give away too much, you’ll just have to come see.
That’s all I can muster for now (we really need to vent these paint fumes…). Til next time, this has been Terry O’Brien. Tune in next week; same Ghost-time, same Ghost-channel.
