Castle Dracula



[fireplace in entrance hall]

Who could forget the painting of Dracula?  Was it just us or was this painting just not scary?  Anyhow, after some sound effects and flickering lights, someone dressed as Dracula or one of Dracula's helpers would jump out of the frame.  He would give you a speech, then send you on your way into the Prison Corridor.  After some comparison of pictures of Brigantine Castle, we discovered that the main picture frame in Brigantine's Castle was the same as this one.  It appears that they shared molds.
