The tour began in a "Hellevator",
which was an enclosure that used sound effects, flashing lights
and a moving floor to simulate a turbulent ride on an elevator.
The elevator operator was a very odd character who repeatedly
stated that I may not live through the experience.
Continuing on through the attraction, there was an array of
scenes with various themes. The dungeon had grey stone
walls, a lot of cobwebs and a girl with her wrists tied up above
her head. As the patrons walked by, she begged to be set
free. There was an area resembling a scene from the Texas
Chainsaw Massacre. A girl was chained to the wall and
several bloody, severed heads hung from the ceiling.
Before the group left the scene, Leatherface jumped out of a hiding
place and attacked them with a power saw. The next
room was a bathroom with blood-smeared walls and body parts
everywhere. In another part of the house, there was a
clown room with multi-colored lights, colorful 55 gallon drums,
clown mannequins that hung from the ceiling, as well as a couple
of real clowns that sprung to action, when the group entered the
scene. They also had a cage maze with loud rock & roll
music playing, along with multiple strobe lights to disorient
you. Inside the maze, there were a couple of actors to
taunt patrons and lead them in the wrong direction. Toward
the end of the attraction, there was a very dark maze with a
surprise or two. Other scenes included a bedroom, creepy
nursery and a playroom where the stuffed animals came to life.
Many of the actors in
this attraction high energy performances and were very eager to
scare. There were a couple, however, like the girl in the
nursery and the elevator operator, who were more creepy than
scary. For the most part, all of the actors did a great
job and stayed in character.
The X-treme Hauntings
crew did a great job this year. I've seen this event
evolve over the past couple of years and I can't wait to see
what they come up with in the future. Be sure to stop by
this attraction if you get the chance!
