    Ever wanted the feeling of waiting alone in the woods in a tent, waiting for a knife-wielding maniac to pay you a terrifying visit?

    Wait no more as the thrill is here in the form of the Great Horror Campout, set to hit the Alameda County Fairgrounds in Pleasanton on July 11 and 12.

    For up to $139 a person, a 12-hour experience can be had for anyone brave enough to have someone "attack you, tie you up, throw a hood over your head, put you through sacrificial voodoo rituals" -- and much more, according to the Contra Costa Times.

    There are varying levels of horror available to thrill-seekers: you can just watch horror movies and tell stories, for example. Then, at the "HellMaster level," you're asked to bring a spare T-shirt, changes of underwear as well as a snorkel mask.
