Pirates of Emerson 2011
About: I am going to take a second away from my fashion tips and tell you about a great Halloween attraction happening in the Bay Area: The Pirates of Emerson 2011. For any of you that are unfamiliar with the Pirates of Emerson (or just not from the Bay Area), it is a Haunted Theme Park with corn mazes and 6 scary haunted houses. I went for the first time last year to see the pirates and it was super scary. I will definitely be heading there this year! They do change the haunted houses every year so even if you went last year you will still have a good time! Each haunted house has a different theme. If you are bringing children, make sure you have room in your bed that night so they can sleep with you. This is scary!
To see more information and a preview visit their website at: http://www.piratesofemerson.com/
Prices: $20 for general admission. This includes admission into all 5 haunted houses plus the mental maze, but not the corn maze.
Add-on: $10 for the corn maze
$30 for speed pass: Same thing as general admission ticket, but to get to cut in front of everybody. This may be worth it if you are going on a Friday/Sat/Sunday and as it gets closer to Halloween because it WILL be packed.
*They do not accept ATM/Credit Card at the location so bring cash or buy your tickets online. They do have an ATM, but I don’t know if there is a charge.
** There is a charge for parking at the Alameda County Fairgrounds. It is $8/car. So that means car pool!!
Dates/Times: Pirates of Emerson is open 7:05-11pm every Friday/Sat/Sunday until the final 2 weeks before Halloween and then they are open every day except Monday. Definitely check out the Pirates of Emerson website for more information!
Where: Pirates of Emerson is located at the Alameda County fairgrounds in Pleasanton, CA right off the Bernal exit on 680.
