Wizard101: Halloween Run 2016 Recap!

Hello Wizards!

Yesterday was an amazing day for the community! This party was such a large party that I think it's safe to say that we made Wizard101 history! We had 400, possibly 500 wizards attend the Halloween Run this year. This was not only the largest party I've hosted with all of our amazing co-hosts (Autumn Dreamwalker, Frostcaller, Michael Frost, and Fallon Fireblade) but also the largest party I've been to in my seven years of Wizard101. We had 15 areas in the same realm and had to use multiple houses! I was hoping to talk to each one of you, but there were just so many people there that I couldn't talk to everyone. I'm glad all of you were able to make it and I hope you're able to make it to the Santa Run on December 17th. Before I share my pictures (which there are many), I want to share the community's YouTube videos of the Santa Run. Keep in mind that not all are in the same area since there were 15 different areas. Please drop a like on all of their videos!

These are all amazing videos and I'm glad each one of you could make it to the event. Please subscribe to their channels! You can click on their names above for a link to their channels. I will also share all other YouTube videos that haven't been uploaded yet on other social media. Thank you all for taking time to make these videos! So other than YouTube videos, we had a lot of wizards submit screenshots of the event! #HalloweenRun2016 on Twitter shows a lot of those screenshots! It was great to see that everyone had a lot of fun even though we had more people than expected. I hope to have a lot more events for everyone next time!

Walkthrough Of The Event

It started with everyone going to Nightside to wait for the event! We had about 70 or 80 wizards four hours before the event. That was a sign we'd have a lot more wizards than expected. I wasn't able to decorate my house, but it was nice hanging out with the community in Area One (of 5 about four hours before the event). 

Witches, Vampires, Angels, Headless Horsemen and Women, Ghostriders, Wolves and much more started running at 4:30 pm CST to the Haunted Cave! I'm pretty sure the wizards that didn't know about this event were shocked to see that many run out of Nightside! We had to travel from and to the spookiest areas in the game. I can't imagine what it would be like if we weren't separated from areas! That would be laggy and pretty awesome!

We teleported everybody from near Nightshade's Tower to Fallon Fireblade's amazing Haunted House, my house, and Frostcaller's house. There were so many wizards, each house kept hitting the max amount of people allowed! I was expecting we'd have enough room in Fallon's house that everyone would be able to participate in the Scavenger Hunt. This Scavenger Hunt, created by Fallon, allowed everybody to run around the house and find specific items relating to each clue that was announced. Everyone who won got two packs each and was also entered to win 10k Worth of Crown Shop Gifts, 5k Crowns + a Costume! Congratulations to Kaitlyn Ironstrider for winning those prizes. I really want to thank Fallon for co-hosting and letting us use her amazing house! I hope y'all had fun there.

This event was a lot of fun and I'm glad all of you could make it! I hope you're ready for the Santa Run that takes place on December 17th. I don't know if I'm going to promote this as much (really depends on if you want another large event like this again). If you do! I'll promote everywhere I can and get everything ready for that. Be sure to check back for details about that and spread the word about the Santa Run on December 17th! The Halloween Run was amazing and I want to thank everyone for helping us make this success! :D Until next time, I'll see you around the Spiral!
