Today’s review is short and sweet because, sometimes, we don’t have a whole lot of time to spend in Second Life. Maybe we only have a few minutes to do something or talk to someone before real life reels us back in.
If you’re looking for a place that only took me about 8 minutes to run through then I suggest checking out the Bay City Halloween Hay Maze (G).
It’s very simple and the decor is scarce (although I do think they hay bales themselves look pretty nice and the sounds are pretty good) but it’s good for a virtual resident who wants to get their Halloween on without spending an hour at one place.
All I can say for a place that took me 8 minutes to run all the way through is go and try the Bay City Halloween Hay Maze (G) yourself and see how long it takes you.

Today I thought I would give you a few quick blips from the Halloween radar. They are all very small places & your visits don’t take very long. Not such a bad thing when you don’t have a lot of time to wander about.
For each one I am going to give you a brief description followed by a positive & negative. Then you can decide if a quick trip is worth your time!
1. Misty Acres (G) – Family Friendly Amusement Park
Positive: It is a very nice family friendly amusement park that goes all out for every holiday that comes along.
Negative: It is really laggy. This could be just me but I always have lag issues because of all of the stuff/scripts/etc. going on.
2. Steelhead Nevermoor Hedge Maze Harvest Festival (M) – Steelhead Nevermoor currently has a hedge maze/festival going on for the season.
Positive: It is a very pretty area of our little virtual world. It feels like it would be a great place to take photos.
Negative: There are anywhere doors throughout the maze that left me feeling all “Meh!” & the place doesn’t feel festive to me.
3. Zombie Nightmare & Halloween Spookfest (M) – Lot’s of spooky items & zombies stuffed into a small slice of Second Life.
Positive: If you want a no themed zombie shoot out with a slice of fog & sound effects then this works for you. It’s a quick shoot stuff & go kinda place.
Negative: Some of the items feel dated.
4. Surreal Fall Festival (G) – Through October 31st.
Positive: There are a lot of carnival rides, Hell Hotel Ride, & a paintball area to check out during your visit.
Negative: Of course there is a LOT of shopping. If you’re not into wandering past tents filled with shopping then you’re out of luck.
I also wanted to share the Halloween costume I am wearing today. Today I am actually dressed as a Halloween Cupcake.
I got the Tiny Cupcake Avatar – Hallowe’een from the SL Marketplace. Not only is it a really cute Halloween costume idea it also makes you look delicious. The entire avatar is only 55L so it’s great if you do a lot of costume changes like I do throughout the season.
