SALEM'S 13 GHOSTS
DayGlo paint, black lights and 3D glasses ("Don't take them off at any time during your journey or you'll go completely mad") add up to a fantastic, hallucinatory haunted house. There are skeletons, a graveyard, spiders, a creepy little ghoul girl, a skull-faced pirate, a rainbow vortex in the floor, and a creaky footbridge over spectral waters. You can't tell what's paint, what's sculpture, and what's a costumed performer about to jump you from behind.
