Summary: You start by watching a grim reaper rise up in the air off a tomb stone, a mourner jumps up, a spirit jumps out of a crypt, walking zombie, and several other props out front, then you move to the side for the torture chamber, where a beating heart is ripped out of a bleeding chest among other terrors. You then go through the "Doorway" in to a maze and visit a haunted fireplace. If you exit the maze, you find yourself surrounded by giant spitting spiders and webs. Go through the cave to get away only to run into "scares" in the cave. You leave the cave to risk an attack by angry witches. The next place is a crypt where the dead are trying to get out of their tombs. The back yard has several Pop out props in the cemetary, plus an exit scare.
