The Control Lab was cool and I’d say I enjoyed it. Choice of scares in Frostbite (videoed), Demented Dimensions, Vault XX, and Festa Bridge. 10 scares for $5 and 5 scares for $3. Better marketing and the park would make a fortune.

We stopped by the Creepy Drunk Stalker upcharge attraction... I mean the Control Lab nightmare. There were people just watching the TVs and laughing at other guests in the mazes and randomly on the Festa bridge (why is there a camera there?). It seemed cruel and creepy all at once. It is a good thing I didn’t really enjoy any of the houses very much this year, because I absolutely don’t want to go in them as long as random strangers can watch me for their entertainment,

It boggles my mind that there isn’t a way to opt out of being the source of hilarity for people hanging out at a “bar” in another part of the park. I feel nothing but hate for this naked money grab from the park.

Not to mention, scare prank videos are plentiful all over the internet and you can watch them for free if you're into that sort of thing. Why would you pay to go to BGW, where there is an abundance of things to do that you cannot do elsewhere, and then pay extra to watch something easily found online for free, and usually only watched by the extremely bored? BGW is definitely catering to the wrong crowd here.

Oh shut it. It's no different than a regular scare. The person getting scared has no idea it's the result of a person at the bar. Stop being so butthurt.

If you believe that is the problem being raised by @Nicole, you are, to put it simply, dense.

In an effort to turn your overwhelmingly harmful post into a slight bit of good for the community, no one—ever—gets to silence anyone else on this forum for anything other than a rules violation.

On that note, if you, @William545, are looking for a forum in which you are protected from controversial opinions you may not like, I suggest you look somewhere other than ParkFans.net.

Yet you call me dense for having a controversial opinion about Nicole's post. Hipocrsy is no way to solve problems. I see where you're coming from but that reply wasn't "overwhelmingly harmful." Unprovokingly insulting someone for their opinions is something that shouldn't be tolerated. I wasn't insulting Nicole. I was giving my insight.

It’s not about what you said @William545, it’s how you said it. There is a difference between disagreeing with someone and telling them to “shut it”.

Just like the person being stalked is not harmed just so long as they do not know it is happening?
Yeah and what are the odds of a crazed stalker watching a 3 second live stream of someone getting scared? Do you think the stalker will get off on seeing someone get scared or something? Why is this such a bad thing? Please think real hard. How would a stalker in know when and what house a person is in if they're on the other side of the park. The odds are basically zero.

I don't even know how to address the mental gymnastics here...

Why are you annoyed? Someone is uncomfortable with something the park is doing. That shouldn't annoy you. You can disagree, but don't be an asshole about it.
I get it. If someone is uncomfortable that's not my problem, but people don't understand how unlikely it is for a stalker to use this as an opportunity. It's like GP saying they're uncomfortable on roller coasters because they think they're going to fall out of the restraint or something. It's all a fat chance.
