Scarier than President Palin

As adults, Halloween is an excuse to cross-dress or emulate a Bourbon Street prostitute without repercussions. This year, The G-Star School of Arts is going all out to scare you into a coma during X-Scream Halloween (2030 S. Congress Ave., West Palm Beach). With four different haunted attractions as well as two outdoor “fright zones,” X-Scream promises to be over 60,000 square feet of terror. And due to genius-level engineering, there are no lines! X-Scream Halloween takes place every Friday and Saturday from 8 p.m. to midnight through November 1. Admission is $13 for adults and $10 for children under 12. There is an even milder version of the haunts just for the kids from 7 to 8 nightly for just $5. Call 561-386-6275, or visit for discounted tickets.
Fridays, Saturdays, 7 p.m. Starts: Oct. 24. Continues through Nov. 1, 2008
