| Overall Score:|
|Scare Factor: Medium | Atmosphere: Very Good|
Visibility/Location: Fables is located right next to Fear City in an old industrial building. There are signs around the attraction and when I went there was police vehicle with their lights on directing traffic into the lot.
Wait Entertainment: There was one girl who came out messed with some people and did some photo opportunities as well.
Length of Event: about 10 minutes.
Actor Performance: Excellent. Some of the best acting I've seen for a long time. Each actor plays a role and they do it very well. All of the actors were very entertaining.
Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Very good. They send in groups of about 6. I went in with a group of 5 and we didn't run into anyone else at all the whole time.
Appropriate Ages: I would say 13 and up because some the actors discuss more mature topics and say some questionable things. I was with a older group though so they may change their language and dialogue based on the patrons in the attraction at the time.
Props / Special FX: No animatronics or anything crazy but a very nice use of props and detailed sets. The lighting is done very well too and there is a cool talking head statue which is reminiscent of Disney attractions.
Costumes / Make-up: Very good. All of the costumes were made to look like carnival people and the makeup and masks were very good and fitting to the scenes and the characters themselves.
Summary: Fables is definitely a different haunted house. They are a breath of fresh air in an otherwise diluted industry with much of the same stuff. They really interact with their customers in a way that other haunts just cannot or will not do. Expect to play games and really get involved with the story and aspects that abound within this attraction. You might even get wet! I know I did!
Fables offers a mix of scares and laughs and you never really know what to expect next. There is even a cool maze inside the haunt which creates a neat disorienting effect on its guests. By all means, Fables is not your typical haunted house but it is definitely something that I think everyone should check out at some point.
