Fright Nights!

Blue House 

A a week before Halloween and me, my sister (Ambar), and my dad, and I are leaving Vancouver island on BC ferries because we are going to Playland. If you don’t know what Playland is, it’s a small theme park and during October they have 8 haunted houses set up and when they do  they call It Fright Nights!!!

When we got to Horseshoe Bay, we drove down to the hotel. We checked in, dropped our stuff off and called a taxi to head down to Fight nights. When we arrived we had already bought passes so went in and showed the security people our tickets. But enough about that. Let,s get into the spooky stuff!

The first thing we did was explore the clown house. It was one of the best houses because it was 3D so we had to wear 3D glasses. We got to the front of the line, put on our glasses and went in (I am not going to spoil too much about the houses in case anybody decides to go). You first go through a mirror maze. I hit the pans of mirror twice because I was in front. Later we came to a room that had polka dots and there was an actor hiding in the corner but he was dressed in a polka dot suit. I hadn’t seen him when I walked past…I will never forget that…ever. Eventually we came to a place where you have to walk through a corridor but the walls were inflated. It was super fun!

 After that, we went to the new house which had a bunch of hillbillies in it. It wasn’t very scary although my dad ran ahead of us but when he tried to scare us it didn’t work because he had a red plaid jacket that someone could recognize from at least 600 meters away.

After that house, we wen’t to a house that had a massive mechanical demon in the front and when we went in, there were lots of catacombs and spiders  I have arachnophobia so… it didn’t go well for me when a massive mechanical spider jumped at me.

After the spider that half scared me to death, we wen’t down to a doll factory (I hate dolls, creepy or not, in my eyes there all evil) . After you wait in line, they take you into an elevator. About 30 seconds later, they let you out and you walk through a hall way, and there is a doll on a wheel chair that comes racing at you( not very scary, but I added it because I think it’s kind of funny). Later in the house you come to a room where there are multiple doors and they split you off but later you join back.

One of my favorite houses is called Fear. It basically has all the fears inside of it (including arachnophobia). I was more scared of the vicious dogs that jump at you than the spiders, but in the long run both were scary. There was a problem though last year for claustrophobia (fear of tight spaces that you can’t escape from) they put you in coffins but this year you just walk through a inflatable wall (at least it’s still fun) .

Another favorite of mine is Hollywood Horrors. You can find every famous horror film character in there like Freddy Crugar or jack from The shining. My favorite part of that house was in the end there was a guy with a chain saw. When he saw my sister he revved the chainsaw and pointed to my sister (you may think it is cruel but if you saw her face you would think other wise).

We wen’t to the original house as well because, why not? The original house is always open even in the summer, but we went to it anyway. My favorite part of this house is at the very end where you walk on a bridge over a spinning corridor that has blinking lights, it gives you horrible nausea, but it is so worth it.

That is the end of my blog post about the Fright nights at the PNE in Vancouver, thanks for reading and have a nice day. Have you ever been to an amusement park with haunted houses, if you have what was the scariest one? did it have actors in it? was there more then one house?

Alex Rider: Super Spy

 Pigeon Man

Did you know that fourteen year old spies exist? Well they don’t unless you read the Alex Rider series. I love the series so that’s why I chose the main character of all the books.  In this blog post I will be sharing some learner traits that I think made Alex Rider who he is now. 

First of all, I think that Alex Rider’s most recognizable learner trait is definitely risk taking. I think he is a risk taker because he always gets himself into situations that are very dangerous. An example being when he was in the hot air balloon in England fighting one of Scorpia’s best men, after he discovered that what Scorpia’s Operation Invisible Sword was very lethal ( read the 5th book to understand more ).  

Another learner trait that I recognize in Alex Rider is industriousness because he gets his job done every single time. He never loses focus on what he has to do but it’s usually because whatever he is focusing on would have to be hard to forget because for Alex Rider it is something like a nuclear crisis or madmen with bullets flying all over the place. 

I think that his third most recognizable trait is confidenceEven though at some points in the books he is lacking the confidence to do something, he always finds and he is much more confident for even getting himself into situations like that in the first place. Some examples of his confidence are when he was trapped in the concrete  room while Venice was flooding and yet he had the courage to go down through the floor boards. Because there was no foundation, he fell into a hole full of water but there was a pipe. Long story short, he built up the courage to swim into a potential death trap. 

I want to conclude my post by saying how Alex Rider has shown that you can build up courage in any situation you are in no mater how difficult it might be. he shows that you can do anything even stuff you cant imagine yourself doing and yet you actually can, just like Alex Rider.

The Life Cycle of Water in Winter

As you know, winter is near and Halloween is past, but I never thought winter would be right at our doorstep.

It is November 2nd, just two days after Halloween and it’s snowing. No, it’s half a blizzard out there. I have never seen this much snow in November before. Besides that fact, I looked out the classroom window and thought, what would it be like to be a snow flake?

At first he’s just water vapor floating high in the sky and the temperature is -2 degrees Celsius, but hes not snow, Not yet.

All of a sudden he collides with a speck of dust. Now his water vapor has a surface to form ice on (science) and now he’s bigger but still merely a speck of ice.

Now hes colliding with more water witch means more ice soon he is heavy enough to start falling. He floats slowly but he’s gradually getting  heavier and heavier because he is colliding with bigger ice particles.

Now hes a snow flake, drifting down, down, down.

Now he can see the small town. The town’s only lights are the street lights. He is getting closer to the town now. Finally, he reaches his destination. He lands on the soft ground. His journey is now over…until he melts back into water and evaporates to become rain.

So now you know my version of the life cycle of water in winter, whats yours?

Hi, I’m Thai,

I live in Comox B.C. which is a province in Canada. I love sailing catamarans (a boat with two hulls) in the Comox harbor with my sail academy called Compass Adventure, I also golf and ski. My favorite color is blue, my favorite foods are pad thai (which comes from Thailand), pizza, pumpkin pie and for breakfast/desert I love to eat waffles, french toast and angel food cake.

I have one sister named Ambar she rides horses. I have three pets: two dogs named Max and Lola, and a kitten named Eddie. M,y pass time hobbies are to play board games, bike around town and play video games.

My favorite school subjects is math and science but i also like art, and unlike normal kids I actually like school ( sometimes when I’m not tired). My favorite season is summer because there is no school, but there are beaches and family trips. My favorite holiday is Halloween because my family and two other families plus lots of friends come over for a massive Halloween party every year.

Thanks for reading my post All About Me
