So, we were driving back from KD last night and Shadows of the Night came on my iPad. Apparently, it is used in Night Beats? As I was dancing as best as I could in my seat, that fact got me thinking: Would I enjoy a show that featured dance music, where I was expected to sit and watch? The answer: absolutely not. At that point it occurred to me was that what I would personally love to see at HoS is a real dance club.

Before I go on, I want to be clear, I do NOT mean anything like Demon Street. I mean an indoor club, which plays a wide variety of good dance music. Specifically the track list MUST include Bizarre Love Triangle.

Pondering what already exists at HoS, I think the Casket Club would be the perfect venue for a dance club. Between Night Beats shows, the Festhaus could be turned into a dance club (maybe on the back side of the stage?). The music could be similar to whatever is played during Night Beats, to maintain consistency. In many ways, it would make it more of a real "club" and less of a clever name.

In my experience dance events are relatively easy to pull off. We ran them several times a semester in college, because people loved going clubbing. The park would have to hire a real DJ, and pay for several hours of music, but beyond that, the only additional costs would be some decorations and maybe some different lighting effects. There is already a nearby bar, and I am certain that there would be plenty of enthusiasm for a real venue for dancing at an event that has already effectively turned into more of a party than a haunt.

Honesty, I feel that a legitimate club is the only missing component of the HoS party anyway. People like me would much prefer to spend an evening dancing than sitting in a seat or hanging out a bar. Obviously, I think they should focus less on the bars and more on the houses and scare zones. If they are determined to focus on the booze, however, I'd like to see a real dance club added this year.

I like the idea of the area behind the stage becoming the dance floor. That way, if you're boring like me and can't dance, you can sit and eat and watch the show, but if you would rather dance, you have that option as well. My only worry would be that some dummy would get too wild and knock someone in the head (especially with all the alcohol being sold in the park).

People drink at dance clubs every night of the week. I am less concerned about the dancers being drunk than the guys camped out at the bar, to be honest. When I went clubbing back in the day, I would drink a few G&Ts and several glasses of water. None of us ever got really hammered, because we were too busy dancing.

I would be in favor of a proper dance thing that's indoors and secluded as a replacement for whatever Demon Street is supposed to be.

I don't know much about clubs or drinking because I'm too young for both Tongue.

We could insist on a Ska track for you!

In fact, I think we could help them out, by providing a complete set list...just so nothing terrible accidentally slips in.

Doesn't BGT do something like this? At least they used to from what I remember. I'm personally all for it, and I believe it was talked about a few times at some point (more than likely in the chat room). Pretty sure if Scott was gone, and BGW shifted their focus from family back to where it used to be (actual scares) something like this would work. But for now, it really seems like they try to target everyone, and it's just not going to work.

Edit: Just as a note, i'm ALWAYS game with any plans for more booze.

I like the idea and believe it could be a draw for many ages, particularly teens. Teens probably have a limited number of options for dance music. I wonder if the wide mix of ages and having alcohol present would cause problems? The park already has a mix of ages and alcohol so probably no cause for concern.

Incidentally I have always wanted to attend or host a Halloween party with the theme, "Dead Man's Party" where everyone attends as a dead celebrity. I don't think it translates to your idea, but I keeping hoping to be invited to such a party.

Coming from a teenager, it should have an age limit of 21 so that it doesn't get wierd.

I once went to "the Party From Hell." We had to come dressed as we saw ourselves in Hell. Naturally, I wore a cocktail dress. The hipster didn't get the joke; he was tiresome.

You are hurting me with your ugly sarcasm. I said "dance music."

They use to have a street party type of thing outside Das Festhaus directly after Fiends in the Festhaus. A few cast members would be outside and lead some dance steps. Mostly kids joined in as adults aren't much fun. It was not dance club music, tho. Stuff like Ghostbusters, Twist (with prize for best twister), I Feel Good and yes, Cha Cha Slide.

Wisdom from a mug ~ In the time before airlines & electricity, the countries of medieval Europe developed distinctive styles architecture suited to their regions. Traditions & culture grew separately as well. The diverse heritage of many Americans is celebrated here in Busch Gardens at Williamsburg.
