Review Posted: 10/02/16
| Overall Score:|
|Scare Factor: Medium | Atmosphere: Good|
Visibility/Location: Since I know the area well I found it with ease. But maybe another sign or flashing lights would be a good thing.
Wait Entertainment: They had a few actors walking around scaring people. 2 little girls maybe 8 or 9 dressed up as dead dolls was fun. The one shorter one was dancing and scaring people as much as she could. The music, was way way too loud. I had to scream to my friends if I wanted to talk to them. I dont want to stand there not talking to my friends for an hour. It was definitely too much. And sorry to say the drummer person they have was just not good and did not add anything to the wait besides making it even louder.
Length of Event: Pretty Decent actually. Maybe around 25 minutes for both Haunts.
Actor Performance: They had some very very good actors there. The Dr. room was by far a standout. All 3 actors in there were going off hard. The lady with the syringes was very good and couldnt have doen any better I thought.
Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Well, since they have 3 staging areas before you actually go in, it wasnt bad.
Appropriate Ages: 7 and above.
Props / Special FX: Just the usual nothing out of the box.
Costumes / Make-up: Cant complain about that. All were done nicely and seemed done very well.
Summary: After going to this last year and being let down a bit, I told myself I wouldnt go again. But since me and some friends were having dinner down the street we decided to check it out. It wasnt bad. I personally didnt like the music and drummer in the main wait line. Much too loud to even talk. But if youre in to parties or raves then this is going to be your jam!
Going in the Haunt we had to be staged in 3 different areas, much like statesville, but since this is no where near as big or busy that was not needed and to me a complete waist of time and space. they could have done something fun there. Also, we must have went on a night where they had technical problems, because I saw tvs but none were on. So actors had to sceeam the rules , what the house was about and themes, which since it was , again, so loud i couldnt hear a single thing and I was first in line. Sending us through in groups of 12 like that makes no sense to me sorry.
The open ceilings were a big let down. It let in too much light. And you want some form of confined space instead of it being wide open. That along with that I can clearly see the prop sensors on the ground tapped down with black tape just screams rushed. Black and just random empty hallways need to be addressed. Also, why do 2 Houses mediocre when I know they can do 1 really well and make it that much longer. Ill chalk this up to a new locations and them getting the Haunts ready in time. Next year I assume they would have those fixed and stream lined.
Actors for the most part were very good. the Dr Room, and a few of the actors hanging for the ceilings were great. My favorite room was the demon standing above everyone with 2 demon girls just being creepy as can be. You need more of that stuff! But, word to the wise, I am a bigger guy, I get it, You dont need to remind me every time I walk into a new room. The ending was very off. no big scare or anything just a girl talking to you then all of a sudden your outside and left wondering what just happened.
But all in all it wasnt bad at all. for $25 its worth it so far. A few top notch actors, good use of strobes and some creepy scenes make this a decent haunt in its new location.
The parking is super strange so be warned on that.
