Grubbins the Goblin
In that regard, not much has changed.
But Costume Quest has had a surprising amount of longevity, and I expect that the sequel will be much the same. The fact that it's short might actually work in its favor, as it makes it the sort of adventure that people can turn into a Halloween tradition, which is not something that can be said about too many games. It's a little stranger this time around, exchanging the malls and suburbs of the original for more esoteric locations, but it nevertheless still feels perfectly appropriate for the holiday. Whether it's the art, the humor, or the setting, this series seems to connect with people in the same way as, say, a film like The Incredibles , which makes sense given that it was originally created by a Pixar alum.
It has this way of taking the simple premise of kids in costume acting out their fantasy of being a superhero or a dinosaur or actually living it In a way, I think we all wish we could go back to a world where our simple superhero and robot costumes are suddenly real, and there are sewers, bayous, and dental dystopias to explore. In this cynical age we live in, sometimes it's nice to be a child again.

Visuals Costume Quest 2's graphics, while still relatively simple, have been bumped a bit since the first game. The rich art is still its most appealing element. Sound Costume Quest 2 does a good job of bringing out its adventurous qualities with a soundtrack that has some epic qualities, but nevertheless manages to avoid being overbearing. Interface Costumes can be accessed from a wheel interface, and the Creepy Treats and quests are easily managed as well.
Lasting appeal At around seven hours, Costume Quest 2 won't last very long. But for more than a few people, it's apt to become an annual tradition alongside the original game. It goes out of its way to keep things simple But its simplicity is redeemed by its terrific art and wry sense of humor, and most importantly, the sheer fun of its premise.

The child near the can has to protect it and counts down and when they say zero, everyone comes out of hiding and tries to knock the can down without being tagged and sent to jail. My 5 year old believes that it should actually be called Mushroom Valley because all of the formations seem to resemble Mushrooms more so than Goblins.
Costume Quest 2 PC Review: The Halloween Time Machine
We found a nice little place tucked in up against the bluffs. We brought buckets, shovels, rakes, and toy cars. The kids played in the dirt undisturbed for great lengths of time. Which was great because it was super windy. We ended up sleeping in our car because the tents we did set up ended up looking like those inflatable tube men bobbing up and down. One moment our tent was as flat as a pancake from the wind the next moment it was bobbing straight up. It is pretty obvious when you arrive. Google Maps can take you there too.

There are bathrooms and small trash cans. The trailhead is well marked. I do not know the story about that, but consider yourself informed! It provided for some pretty awesome slots that our kids enjoyed climbing into.
I saw all ability levels doing it too. Also, many babywearers. Little Wildhorse canyon is an 8 mile loop. We probably hiked 1. Pretty much flat the whole time too. The only part I thought was pretty questionable was at the beginning.
When you start the trail you follow a dry river bed for some time and then you need to climb up to the left, it is pretty obvious when you get to this point. However, you will need to hike up to get around the giant pothole. Once you climb up you will have to get down again to get into the canyon. It is at this point where I had some concerns. Small children need a lot of assistance in this area. It is not unreasonable, but if you have bad knees it could make for a rather uncomfortable decent.
