The Chief Haunting Officer of Odyssey Fun Farm in Tinley Park, Scary Harry, invited me and my family to come out to enjoy a not so scary hayride.
Do you know what I remember from Halloween parties at school when I was a kid? Two things, Jays Potato Chips (very Chicago) and Orange Crush in 2 liter bottles. Oh, to be in 3rd grade again.
Unfortunately, only myself and my two younger sons were able to make the event. We had a blast nonetheless. Hopefully we were able to help Scary Harry #CrushHalloween.
Scary Harry kept the kids entertained, the parents engaged and the little ones laughing.
My 10 year old had this to say about the hayride:
What did you like about the hayride? "That there was a whole bunch of funny stuff like the vampires sunbathing."
Did you think that it was scary? "No"
Is that okay that it wasn't scary? "Yes, so you don't get freaked out."
Would you go on it again? "Yes"
If my 19 month old yelled "Punkin" most of the time and didn't cry once.
I think that's a win, win all around.
Our biggest challenge during the hayride was trying to get our scariest "BOO" worked up to scare the ghosts.
We were offered some Orange Ogre Crush Soda at the end of the hayride. We had to refuse it due to food allergies, though. It was nice to be able to enjoy a hayride that wasn't too scary for my kids to enjoy and funny enough to keep them entertained. I think THAT is a sweet deal.
After the hayride we were able to enjoy Odyssey Fun Farm for a short bit, which both kids enjoyed greatly. Chris loved the inflatable floor and Will was a big fan of all the "Punkins!!"
Thank you to Crush Soda for the invite out to enjoy "The Adventures of Harry, The Not So Scare Scarecrow" and to Odyssey Fun Farm for the complimentary admission.
