Prominent provider of aftermarket Jeep parts and accessories, 4WD, has awarded Chris Jurden of Lake Stevens, Washington as the winner of its Jeepers vs. Zombies Sweepstakes September drawing. Jurden, owner of five Jeeps, won a set of Truck-Lite LED headlights when he was randomly selected from over ten thousand entrants. Launched in early September, the sweepstakes will award a Smittybilt X2O 8,000 pound winch in October and a set of 4 Pro Comp Tires in November.
“I called my wife and told her I won something and she said it figures it would have to do with zombies,” says Jurden. “It was neat to win something because I enter 4 Wheel Parts and 4WD contests all the time.” Jurden plans to add the lights to his 2013 Wrangler Unlimited. He’s such a big fan of zombies that he had a friend of his custom make decals for his Jeep that say Zombie Wrangler Edition.
In addition to the random winner, Christina Riga of East Northport, New York will be awarded a $ 100 4WD gift certificate and t-shirt for accumulating the most bonus points. Points are given when entrants share the url with their Jeep and truck friends on social platforms or like 4WD on Facebook.
Riga recently bought a sport green 1998 TJ that needs some work and the 4WD gift certificate will get her started. “I’ve wanted a Jeep since I was five-years-old and I named mine Frankenstein,” she says.
“We’ve had an unprecedented number of entries in our undead giveaway and 4WD is happy to be the group that keeps on giving,” says 4WD Website Manager Kelly Young. “Our recent Jeep Jamboree was proof positive that the combination of Jeeps and zombies is a winning one.”
The 15th annual 4WD Jamboree in Columbiana, Ohio featured a theme tent with people made up as zombies, fog machines, and a life-sized photo of a zombie-killing machine Jeep. Attendees snapped up Jeepers vs. Zombies t-shirts and accessories to help them survive the coming zombie apocalypse.
Jeepers vs. Zombies sweepstakes entrants receive a free Zombie Hunting Permit decal and 4WD catalog when they supply their address. They can enter each month to win the different giveaways. Among the comments online are “Getting geared up for the zombie apocalypse with 4WD!” and “Jeeps, zombies and free stuff! What’s not to like?”
YouTube videos on the entry page promote the Jeep parts giveaways by tapping into the 4×4 community’s affinity for the undead and making their vehicles zombie-proof. Flesh eaters are alive and licking in pop culture as witnessed by city-wide zombie walks, AMC’s acclaimed TV series The Walking Dead, and the movie World War Z, which has grossed over $ 500M worldwide.

Decorating the house for Halloween has grown to be second only to decorating for Christmas. Halloween items date back to the early 1900s – decorations and costumes made from crepe paper, candy containers and jack-o-lanterns from Germany, painted tin noisemakers, and paper lanterns. These vintage Halloween collectibles are scarce because they were used and thrown out. They sell for high prices. But collectors who love Halloween should be on the prowl for decorations with fun graphics that will be future collectibles.
Here are five things (spookier than spiders) to look for now that will be sought-for and pricey collectibles in 25 years:
1. Special holiday bottles and cans. Soft drinks are sold in spooky containers. Crush soda has three new Halloween flavors, Gruesome Grape, Spooky Strawberry and Orange Ogre, that come in limited edition plastic bottles with scary faces, perfect for Halloween parties. And Jones Soda is bringing back limited edition Halloween flavors, including Candy Corn, Red Licorice, Caramel Apple, and Blood Orange in cans with portraits of Frankenstein, a zombie, a vampire and a werewolf. Enjoy the soda – it’s a special occasion – keep the containers.
2. Plastic “stuff” – colorful 1950s and ’60s candy containers, figures, and jack-o-lanterns are inexpensive and easy to find. Look for hard plastic holiday-themed candy containers made by the E. Rosen Co. of Rhode Island, also known as Rosbro Plastics and the School House Candy Co. The candy containers are no longer made, but they’re charming and plentiful. Keep an eye out for contemporary plastic decorations with good design. Enjoy the candy – keep the containers.
3. Zombies and vampires. There was a time when Halloween wasn’t about REALLY scary things like zombies and gruesome headless monsters. But tombstones and skeletons aren’t spooky enough anymore – since zombies and vampires became popular TV and movie creatures. Look for plastic, rubber, or resin decorations like the zombie-hand candleholder. Scare guests now – save for later.
4.Jewelry. Charm bracelets with pumpkins, bats, and black cats; jointed skeleton earrings decorated with rhinestones, and spider rings of all kinds are fun and easy to find. Wear now – and save for later.
5. Motion- or voice-activated figures that light up or emit scary sounds and music. Have you ever jumped out of your skin when a fake witch screamed, crept, or crouched when you walked past? Life-sized pumpkin men, witches, vampires, black cats – even just body parts like crawly hands – can be found in any degree of “fun scary.” Startle neighbors now – and save for later.
And save the paper or plastic masks, costumes, treat bags, and dolls as low-priced future collectibles to enjoy each October.

There’s already plenty of things to do in Las Vegas year round, but Las Vegas Halloween Haunted Houses are an extra scary October treat. Some are chilling, some are thrilling but all of the haunted attractions are to celebrate Halloween in Las Vegas. 2013 has plenty of special Las Vegas Halloween parties and events, but it’s the haunted houses (and Las Vegas resort fees) that really get Casino Boy screaming.
Frightdome at Circus Circus
No need to leave the Las Vegas Strip to enjoy some Halloween fun. Fright Dome has taken over Adventuredome at Circus Circus Hotel Las Vegas. The 250,000 square feet Halloween dome features 6 haunted houses, 4 scare zones, 25 rides and attractions and live entertainers. The maze based on “The Collection” and “The Collector” horror films are especially scary, as patrons must enter alone so there’s no safety in numbers. The annual celebration is underway and general, fastpass and VIP tickets are available.
Las Vegas Haunts: Asylum Haunted House and Hotel Fear
Although the holiday rates at Las Vegas Hotels can be scary, nothing compares to the horrors of Hotel Fear. Located at the Meadows Mall in Las Vegas, both Hotel Fear and Asylum haunted houses feature interlinked story lines and plenty of frights. Hotel Fear and Asylum have been scaring and entertaining patrons for more than 15 years and 2013 is no exception.
Haunted Reef Aquarium at Mandalay Bay
Those who are crazy enough to bring children to Sin City are lucky that there are things to do with kids on Halloween in Las Vegas. Shark Reef Aquarium at Mandalay Bay Hotel Las Vegas will become Haunted Reef on October 25-27 for the 2013 Halloween season. Casino Boy can’t get it for free but kids in costume have free admission on October 25.
Haunted Harvest at Springs Preserve
Casino Boy is always on the lookout for Las Vegas deals. Admission to Haunted Harvest is just $ 6 for kids and $ 9 for adults, way cheaper than the on-Strip haunts. Haunted Harvest takes place on October 11-13, 18-20, and 25-27. There is a petting zoo, carnival games, trick-or-treating and a haunted hay maze, so family fun is encouraged at Haunted Harvest. Haunted Harvest Las Vegas also features stations for donating candy to overseas troops and old costumes to underprivileged children.
Freakling Bros.’ Trilogy of Terror
Those who are ready to pee their pants with fear need look no further than Trilogy of Terror Las Vegas this Halloween. Experience three of Las Vegas’ most gut wrenching haunted houses all in one place. The “Circus of Horrors” exposes guests to some of the darkest and most freakish creatures of the side-show variety. “Castle Vampire” is a chilling maze of evil night walkers that would make Edward Cullen scream like a little girl. Finally, “Gates of Hell” is an interactive attraction and the one and only “R-rated” haunted house in the state. This is undoubtedly the most disturbing, graphic and horrifying haunted house in Las Vegas.
Sin City Scare Fair
The newest haunted thrill to hit Las Vegas this Halloween is Sin City scare Fair which features “15 days of horror” from October 11-31. This 60,000 square foot festival has things to do for all ages and two scary haunted houses. Fearless patrons can experience “The Last Ride,” a burial simulator where participants climb into a real used coffin to see what it’s like to be buried. Casino Boy will probably just stick to the pumpkin patch. Walking around in a dark maze can get old, so there’s also the “Terror Track” where patrons can participate in a zombie-filled go-kart ride. Speaking of Zombies, Sin City Scare Fair is set to host “The Walking Dead” and “American Horror Story” actors during the festivities.
