Blowing Screams Farm Opens This Weekend With All New Slides

Wednesday, September 30, 2015 - by Meagan Jolley

Venture into the horror of an alternate dimension at this year’s Blowing Screams Farm, beginning Saturday, then every Friday and Saturday night in October. Four slides plummet guests into the VOID where only red spectrum lights are used to avoid hostile creatures known as the Nihilum.

“We are excited to introduce our slide tower for this season’s haunt,” said Will Jackson, senior manager of innovation for See Rock City (SRC), Inc. “Our three-story tower features 30-foot culvert slides to carry guests into the haunt below. Each group of guests are given a red LED key fob light source as their primary way to get through the haunt. Our theme features an alien world where light is dim and dark creatures lurk everywhere.”

After years of searching, Dr. Virgil O’Maro discovered a thin spot in the dimensional boundary located at Blowing Springs Farm in Flintstone, GA. Dr. O’Maro sent a particle through the small wormhole in hopes of widening it for human exploration, and succeeded. He entered the VOID with a plan to create an exit portal, but has yet to be heard from…until now.

“As always, Blowing Screams Farm strives to separate ourselves from other haunts by largely eschewing store-bought props to create almost all of our environments and creatures from scratch, for a truly customized, one-of-a-kind haunted experience,” said Mr. Jackson.

Blowing Springs Farm features Rock City’s Enchanted MAiZE by day and turns into Blowing Screams Farm at night. The MAiZE is closed at night, except the last Friday and Saturday in October.

Go to for ticket combos and All You Can Scream Passes. The haunt stays open until the last victim screams (be in line by midnight)! Parental discretion is advised.

DACA Or Amnesty To Become The Majority?

As we have the political drama that we see in D.C. let’s be honest about what DACA is all about.

Without an influx of new dependency ... (click for more)

He turned in his paper and, as it was returned with an A-plus, it is only fitting that something this clever should begin this week’s edition of The  Saturday  Funnies.
