After purchasing your tickets, you enter into a waiting area that simulates the outdoors in a small town, surrounded by storefronts. While the detail here was great, there were no actors, nor any music or sound in this area.
Once we were let into the house, we entered a rules area, set up as a funeral service. The actor in here was particularly funny, and I was impressed that, though this room may hold a number of people, he seemed to give us his full on performance, even though we were only a group of four. Highly entertaining, and a very unique approach to the traditional “rules room” in other haunts.
After learning the rules, you’re sent into the house. The detail level here was very good. One complaint I do have is that the detail seemed to stop at the ceiling. Notable scenes included the crematorium, where the actress did a great job at staying in character, while keeping us entertained as she tried to stop us from catching up to the group in front of us. We also enjoyed the “Transylvanian Castle” scene. The actress here also did a nice job at detaining our group for crowd control and amusing us, without making it feel like we were being stopped intentionally.
Other rooms we enjoyed were the Egyptian tomb (though I did think they would have done well with an additional actor or two here), as well as the dark, “dot maze” at the end of the house. The actor here was very high energy (only one actor worked this room, but honestly, sometimes you wondered if there were 2 or 3, he was very high energy!)
Overall, we enjoyed this house a lot. There were many well placed actors, and all we encountered were highly entertaining, if they were not going for scares. I would have liked to hear a bit more sound in areas (the majority of areas had no soundtrack at all), and the fresh paint smell in many areas took away from the atmosphere a bit, but overall, we were given a great show!
