Reading about Six Flags Fright Fest coming up on October 5th reminded me of a crazy story I heard about my eldest sister.
See… once upon a time she was obsessed with Freddy Krueger. In fact she though they were dating. I’m not exactly sure how that all came about, but she honestly was crazy about him. We even lived in this old house where she had a basement room and the cellar door was never opened (because it was really creepy) and she said it was Freddy’s room. As we were all really little, we believed her and stayed very far away from that room.
So decades ago (literally) she went to Six Flags Fright Fest with my Aunt and she spent hours searching for Freddy Krueger. At one point she actually found someone in the costume while she was being chased by Jason (incidently she was scared out of her wits by Jason) and she chased him down screaming at the top of her lungs, “I LOVE YOU! I LOVE YOU FREDDY!”
Probably the first time you’d have ever seen Freddy Kruegar run away scared.
To calm my sister down my Aunt put her on the big Ferris Wheel and guess what happened?
Robert Englund came over.
My sister screamed at the top of her lungs from the top of the Ferris Wheel where no one could hear her.
My Aunt had a nice time talking to Robert Englund though.
My sister still doesn’t like Ferris Wheels.
