Abyss consisted of
several scenes of various themes, separated by a number of dark
hallways. Some of the scenes were moderately detailed,
while others had only a few props and plain black walls.
One scene featured a picture on the wall and a skeleton sitting
in an easy chair, watching television. The "Family
Art Gallery" was a hallway of pictures. On the wall
opposite the row of pictures, hung a mirror. As the group
walked by the mirror, a great visual effect surprised everyone. In the clown room,
there were several demented clowns and a table decorated with
body parts. In another area of the house, there was a
toxic waste spill. Radioactive symbols were painted on the
walls, several barrels glowed an eerie green color and the actor
in the scene actually raised one of the barrels over his head and slammed
it to the ground, right in front of my group. Other
eclectic scenes featured Freddy Krueger, a chainsaw wielding
maniac, a graveyard and a hallway of cockroaches that crunched
underfoot, as you walked along.
The actors exhibited a
wide variety of intensity levels throughout the
attraction. Some just quietly followed you, while others
(like the guy in the toxic waste scene) were very
energetic. All of the actors stayed in character and
performed their roles well.
attraction didn't have as much "bang for your buck" as
I had hoped for.
While it was an enjoyable experience overall and they had some
pretty creative ideas, I think the ticket price of $17 was just too high,
considering the time spent inside and the entertainment
to find out more about this event.
