The opening scene of
this haunted house was very graphic. It involved a nurse
and a patient fighting over a hand gun and eventually the
patient met a gruesome end, with patrons actually feeling a
spray of "blood" on their faces. A large part of this
attraction seemed to consistently follow an insane asylum theme.
A lot of areas had white, blood-smeared walls, with fog and
numerous strobe lights used to disorient the patrons walking
through. Throughout the haunted house, there were various

prop, with a body laying on a tilted platform. In another
part of the insane asylum, a disgusting mutilated body on a
table sat up, when patrons walked by.

haunted house there was a nice clown area with red & yellow
striped walls, cobwebs, and evil clowns stalking the patrons.

music playing throughout the area, as well as a few actors and
several dead-ends. With all of that to disorient you, it

performances, while others were more demented and disturbing, depending on their role inside the haunted house.
In the insane asylum area, one of the actors was singing "We
wish you a Merry Christmas" and another was singing "Somewhere
over the rainbow". How weird! A number of the actors
were pretty short, which made them less intimidating; however,
they all did a good job. Regardless of height, everyone
stayed in character and they seemed to be really into their
