The Abyss haunted house
consisted of a group of eclectic scenes, separated by dark
hallways. I really liked their introductory scene, which
was a detailed study that featured a fireplace with a simulated
fire, pictures hung on the wall, a rocking chair and other old
furniture. After I entered the room, a ghoul suddenly
an empty picture frame to welcome me to the Abyss. At
first I couldn't find my way out of the room, then suddenly the fireplace opened up and I
was able to continue my journey through the house.
Continuing through the
rest of the attraction, there were a number of interesting
scenes. In the bedroom there was a bloody bed,
glowing posters on the walls, and stuffed animals scattered
around the room. Just as I was about to leave the scene,
Freddy Krueger emerged from a hiding place. As he ran his
hand down the wall, sparks were shooting off the metal blades of
his glove. The toxic waste spill featured a green glowing plastic barrel, as well as a
collection of 55 gallon drums and toxic waste signs.
Another one of my favorite
scenes was the jungle. To get through this room, I had to duck down
under branches and camo-netting. Jungle sound effects
added to the realism of the scene and there was a great scare
that took me by surprise. I also liked the
cockroach-covered hallway, with "roaches" that crunched as I
walked along. Another hallway was covered with maggots and
it felt like there were maggots falling on me from up above.
I enjoyed the open casket scene, too. The body in the
casket appeared to be breathing and its head turned back and
forth. This scene also had an unexpected scare. Some
of the other interesting scenes included a fortune teller,
creepy clowns, hallway of hanging heads and a scene at the end
that made me think of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Of
course, I can't forget to mention the vortex tunnel.
The attraction continued
outside for their final scene, which was a detailed cemetery
with numerous tombstones, colored accent lighting and a zombie
girl digging herself out of a shallow grave. As I walked
by, she screamed and groaned, clawing at the air in my
direction. Kudos on the great performance!
Before walking under the wrought-iron gates at the exit, there
was a final scare that was unexpected.
For the most part, all
of the actors did a good job. A lot of them were
interactive, while some of the other actors were more passive
and creepy. Overall, the actors with speaking roles were
really into what they were doing and they stayed in character
the entire time.
Kudos to everyone from
The Abyss. They put on a nice performance and their show
has really improved, since my last visit in 2006. This year the house
layout was better and the scenes were more detailed. The
acting had also improved. Keep up the good work!
