Damn you Minnesota and your foul evil snow! Yeesh, I hope this isn’t the same storm that has effectively killed Denver. Well, at least I’ll get to work from home tomorrow. For the holiday season my boss just bought me a book on being subversive with crazy facts like how quickly you can drive a person insane by putting pressure on specific areas of their skull, and things like that. Also little facts like MSG is a massive depressant, as is Nutrasweet. This book rocks!  I just got the following email, and Quinn, it’s almost tempting enough that we do this instead of New Orleans for Halloween if only because of the comedy of ALEXANDER LUCARD BEING INVITED TO TRANSLYVANIA FOR HALLOWEEN. Come on people, this kind of material practically writes itself. 

 Have yourself a haunted horror holiday…Can’t think of a unique gift for the holiday season? Here’s something you could sink your teeth into even after the holidaze! Treat someone to the ultimate haunted horror experience — a “vampire vacation!”
“DraculaTour,” is the travel adventure which takes you to Eastern Europe’s most
infamous land of the unholy, Transylvania (in Romania). For one week next year,
either July 10-17, 2007, or October 27-November 3rd, 2007, experience the
definitive haunted holiday with fellow fans, friends & fiends of the macabre on
a vacation that is scary, spooky, campy - but most of all - fun for all
ages! “DraculaTour” is the only true fully-guided, professionally-escorted “vampire vacation” professionally organized by fans especially for fans. This annual pilgrimage to Transylvania is presented by Tours of Terror, who organize and host both the Summer version of the tour and the popular Halloween week trip, along with the annual haunted “GHOSTour.” The very special guest tourguide for the Summer trip (July, 2007) is horror hostess Darvella, from television’s “Vampire Lounge.” She will be onboard throughout the tour to mingle with travelers, and be available for photos and autographs. The last horror host to join us was TV personality/actor Butch “Eddie Munster” Patrick.

“Dracula Tour” follows Jonathan Harker’s trail from the novel “Dracula,” while throwing in all sorts of spooky surprises along the way. There is a mock witch trial, visits to haunted graveyards and time spent in the world’s largest and oldest torture museum. There is both educational and entertainment value as the tour includes historical Bran Castle, Clock Tower, the Black Church, Vlad’s birthplace, Vlad’s castle (also known as Dracula’s fortress) and also the monastery where Vlad is buried. It’s the perfect combination of fun and fear, for anyone looking for an unusual week-long ghoulish getaway. Vampires, vampire fans and even vampire slayers are welcome, and all get along harmoniously on this travel adventure.

The highlight of the “Dracula Tour” is undoubtedly spending the night at Dracula’s Castle. All travelers dress in their best costumes, eat a lavish meal, experience a surprise “vampire” encounter, descend to the dungeon of the castle where “the coffin” lies waiting, dance to appropriate macabre music (everything from “The Monster Mash” to music from “Rocky Horror”), partake in a moonlit bonfire and simply have the times of their lives … even if they’re part of the undead. Every year, one couple takes the experience one step further — they get married during the trip with their ceremony and reception at Dracula’s Castle, and all the fellow travelers are guests at this unique wedding! Whereas most couples kiss after their cake-cutting ceremony, the bride and groom bite each other’s necks (lovingly, of course).

What are some of the other highlights of this trek of terror? Along with actually following in the footsteps of Jonathan Harker’s trail from Bram Stoker’s novel “Dracula,” you will spend time in Bucharest ascending the Carpethian Mountains to Vlad Castle. You will be part of a hair-raising (spirit-raising?) séance in a secluded graveyard in Brasov. You will see the Black Church and haunted Farmer’s Market in Sighisoara, birthplace of Dracula (Vlad). You will visit the eerie Clock Tower and Square History Torture Museum. You will embark on a journey through Borgo Pass to Dracula’s Castle! You will also explore the Snagov Monastery (Tomb of Dracula) as well as the Transylvanian Castle of Bran, a fortress built in 1377 and preserved as national monument. And that’s just the sightseeing part of the trip. Our nights are filled with howling parties, witch trials, bonfires and surprises. There’ll be more head-turning than in an Exorcist movie!

This professionally-guided, fully-escorted tour is ideal for the single traveler, but also is well-suited for couples and also families. If you’re the type who would enjoy dressing up (or down) for a masquerade ball in Dracula’s Castle, or if you can imagine have a blood-suckingly great time partying under a full moon in a land that time forgot, this is the tour experience of a lifetime (even if you’re part of the undead!). And it’s the most inventive holiday gift for anyone into such a vacation.

“Dracula Tour” is presented in association with Horrorfind.com, Chiller Theatre, Monster Bash, Haunted Attraction Magazine, VampFangs, MonsterMania and the Fright Catalogue. It’s a $4500 value for only $1999 per person (this is the last time the tour will be priced this low), based on double occupancy. Package price includes round-trip airfare from the NY metro area, deluxe hotel accommodations, meals, transfers, luxury coach ground transportation, all events - parties - guests appearances - attractions - admissions. Reservations are now being accepted, and space is limited.

We also produce the annual “GHOSTour” (a Haunted Horror Vacation to England September 10-17, 2007) and our music-theme trips, notably the “Magical History Tour” for Beatles fans. Please write or call for details.

Although the Vampire Vacation takes place in July and over Halloween time, we will gladly include post-holiday gift card notices with travel vouchers for anyone reserving space on any of the tours as gifts.

Happy Horrordaze and Beast Witches!

LOL. Vampires.
