Photo Hunters 133 (15) "Scary"



This weeks theme is "scary." At first I almost skipped this one. But then I thought of a place we went to last weekend. It's called the "Yankee Siege" and they have a big catapult machine that flings pumpkins. My son took these pictures of the castle they have there, and a big wrecking ball. He didn't get a picture of the big catapult machine though.






You could go into the castle. This place was pretty cool. The pumpkin flinging was cool. What is "scary" about it then, you ask. The "scary" part was when we were about to leave, my son went to look at this big front gate they had. I didn't see it actually happen, but he fell into a shaft in the gate. He fell pretty far down this shaft, and scraped his leg up and really bruised it. He was very "scared." We finally saw him in this shaft (for lack of a better word) and pulled him out. He was pretty shaken up. I was "scared" he had broken his leg. He just got pretty banged up. He is ok now. It pretty much put a damper on our previously fun day. I won't be going back there anytime soon. It was pretty "scary."

  3. That does sound a scary time, poor lad. I hope he's well recovered now. Actually, I think that first instrument looks pretty scary too!

  6. That is a neat place, but I hope you complained about how badly scraped up your son got on something that was open to the public.

  8. Thanks for all the comments everyone. @ Dianne, I know that was the one thing I regret we didn't say anything to anyone. Mostly because we were in shock. We left and I really wished we complained. We should have told someone what had happened, if not for avoiding someone else doing the same thing. They do have a website and I thought about sending them an email to tell them what happened. I probably should.

  10. Sue, do say something about your son on the website. I'm about to complain about the lousy food we got in a few places (yesterday and today) at the companies websites. Doesn't anyone care about quality anymore?

  14. Hi Sue,
    After reading some of your comments, I would send them an email too. So they can be aware of this problem and what happened to your son. I would hate for this to happen to someone else. That would of been scary and I'm so glad your boy is ok. The pictures were pretty neat and thanks for sharing them with us.
