Abby Luschei Salem Statesman Journal Published 9:00 AM EDT Oct 1, 2018 When Kivo LeFevre goes out in public, he may not be immediately recognizable — until he laughs. That's because for one month every year he uses his laugh as a scare-tactic when he portrays Mr. Booger at the Nightmare Factory, the longest running haunted house in Oregon. When the Nightmare Factory opened in 1987, LeFevre was one of the first student volunteers, and now he's the co-director.

Scott Craven Arizona Republic Published 7:00 AM EDT Sep 26, 2018 For the first time, Walt Disney World in Florida will use flexible pricing on multi-day passes as park officials take steps to manage crowds before the new Star Wars Land opens in 2019. If the new sales tool is successful, don’t be surprised to see Disneyland adopt the same model.
