Awesome Weekend

We have a group of friends that we hang out with regularly and when we get together we refer to it as "Awesome Night". We decided to make awesome night into an awesome weekend and take a trip together to Boone during peak leaf season! 

We found a great rental on VRBO. It was 5 miles from downtown Boone, in Vilas. Luckily it was a pretty cheap cab ride when we needed a DD because unfortunately they don't have uber in Boone! It was relatively cheap considering that it slept 4 couples, had a basement with a ping pong table, a fire pit and a hot tub. 

Busch Gardens Howl-O-Scream

We try to make it to Busch Gardens' Howl-O-Scream every year. It is our favorite time to go because we get to ride all of the rides, not sweat like crazy and enjoy the haunted house fun. 

We also make sure to buy the Quick Queue passes. I don't know how anyone could get through all of the things that we did in 1 day without the pass. It isn't cheap but we only went in to the park for one day and managed to ride every ride that we wanted to and go in every haunted house! Otherwise lines for most of them were 45 minutes to 1.5 hours! No thanks! 

We rode all of the rides earlier in the day. And enjoyed a mid-day break in Germany to eat sausage and watch the show in Das Festhaus.
