In honor of it being Halloween, everyone has been getting in the spooky mood lately. This may be the best Halloween we’ve had in a while, if Covid stays out of it. Halloween 2020 will be on a Saturday night and it will be a full moon. Many Halloweens events have been cancelled already. In hopes that our great Halloween will happen, here is a list of some of the scariest and most haunted places in the United States. 

5. Stanley Hotel

The exterior of the hotel

The Stanley Hotel was the biggest inspiration for the very popular horror movie, “The Shining”. The inspiration for the movie came to Stephen King after staying in the most haunted room of the hotel, room 217. The hotel is in the middle of the Rocky Mountains and is said to be the most haunted hotel in the United states. It is said that the hotel is haunted by a very large amount of ghosts, ranging from celebrities, children, pets, and even the original owner of the hotel, Freelan Stanley. Staff of the hotel claim they have visibly seen Stanley and his wife enjoying their afterlife in the hotel. 

The concert room

Many of the ghosts in the hotel are well known due to their late celebrity status, however one of the most known ghosts is named Jack. He haunts the concert hall of the hotel and thinks he runs the place. It is 11:00 P.M. curfew at the hotel. Guests have reported hearing Jack yell, “Get out!” when the clock strikes 11:00. Many other ghosts live in the hotel. Guests have reported being nudged, hearing voices, feeling watched, and seeing a person one second, then them disappearing the next. Many rooms in the hotel have been said to be the best for paranormal activity. Guests try their best to get these rooms, however they are normally booked and several visitors have even been put on a waiting list for these rooms. 

4. AZ Field of Screams

The AZ Field of Scream is the scariest cornfield haunted attraction in the U.S. It holds a large variety of characters played by very experienced actors. The actors do have the opportunity to touch you and if they feel that it is needed to scare you, they may pull your hair, arm, or clothing. People who haven’t claimed it were the scariest attraction that they’ve ever been to. Many said they left with tears from being so terrified. 

Actor form the maze

The corn maze was planted over an old, rundown and forgotten cemetery. The dead from the cemetery may still be lurking in the tall field of corn. The attraction’s description says, “You’re walking through a quiet dark cornfield, anticipating every second danger is lurking around the next corner… you walk quietly and suddenly wonder if you are the only ones out there, where AM I? SHUUUUSHHH … then a blood curdling scream in the distance reminding you … they are out there … waiting… for YOU … it’s not IF they will get you … it’s WHEN will they get you … and your brain is screaming RUN! … But where do you run? ….. They are waiting for you …..”. If just that narrative doesn’t scare you, I’m not sure what will.  (Hit “2” to read more)

Ranking the Assassins Creed Games

With the upcoming release of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Ubisoft’s next highly anticipated game in the series, many are wondering if it’ll be the next big thing to keep the franchise alive, or if it will be a reskin of the past two games, Origins and Odyssey. Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed is one of gaming’s longest and most profitable franchises to date, but there’s skepticism about Ubisoft leeching everything about what makes Assassin’s Creed good until the well is dry. As a veteran of the Assassin’s Creed games, here’s my list of the 11 games in the main series, (excluding spin-offs and DLC) ranked from worst to best.

How Has COVID-19 Has Effected west clermont high scholl

COVID-19 has made big changes to the world since the major outbreak back in March. Restaurants, stores, professional sports are among the closed. Thousands of people throughout the country have gotten laid off because of the fear of COVID taking over. This caused many people to file for unemployment, which in turn led to the government giving out millions of dollars within the past 6 months. This has changed our country in major ways, but how has COVID-19 changed the way students at West Clermont High School are learning today?

What Has Caused the Sports Card Market to Boom?

Over the last couple of months, the sports card market has boomed. Prices are sky-high across all sports, and it has become nearly impossible to find any product at retail price. This level of investment has not been seen since the 1990s and the demand back then caused most of the companies to go into overproduction, making most sports cards almost worthless from that time. Many people speculate that the companies are overproducing once again, but the empty shelves prove otherwise.

Acrylic nails vs poly gel nails

Acrylic nails are the most known and have been around for decades. With celebrities showing off their favorite nail design and even to you just wanting to get your nails done it shows how popular and how  advertised they are. Poly gel nails however are hard to come by at a salon. Poly gel nails aren’t used as often and many people don’t know what they are.
