Last Major Update:
The people of Florida have been dodging alligators and panthers since the time of its exploration by Ponce de Leon. They have been kept young by their discovery of the fountain of youth, the yellow polka dot bikini. So these Florida haunted houses are not a place for the old and weary. Women and children may want to avoid them as well. Only the smartest and strongest Floridians will survive the encounter.
