|The Waiting Room|
Always located near the entrance of Nowhereto Park is a small building referred to as the Waiting Room. Inspired by the movie Beetlejuice, within are several long benches usually filled with people who the Grim Reaper has yet to take over to the other side but have decided to wait it out themselves. Behind a glass sliding window along one wall nurses from the Silent Hill universe seem to be doing all of the administrative work; possibly explaining the length of the lines.
Here also exists a single wooden door that is locked to everyone save for the few souls who are supposed to be in the afterlife which occasionally pass through. Behind it guards Charon, the ferryman who escorts souls across the river Styx.
The Waiting Room(#2262R)
As you enter the building, you are instantly assaulted with offensive waiting room muzak. The kind that makes you wonder if it wasn't created specifically for the purpose of sucking out one's will to live. An appropriate thing for a place like this. There are no signs describing what the room is a waiting room for. The receptionist is always busy, and the only door that's not the exit seems to be locked at all times. Occasionally, someone will come in from outside and walk through that door - letting out a disturbing red light and a distinctly uncomfortable presence. Along the walls of this room are several long benches with some horrible magazines stacked atop them. Articles about what color socks are popular in Cuba, and things you can cook with salt seem to make up the headlines. There are always people randomly scattered about here; some reading magazines, and others looking blankly into space. None of them will speak to you. In fact, most will 'shhh' you if you start making too much noise. There's a purpose for this room, right?
