hear good things about Boo Crew in our travels, and overall, we were pleased
with what we found.
house itself appears to follow some sort of clown theme at first – as this is
the artwork featured in the waiting area. After
what felt like an overly long wait, we were ushered into an opening room,
looking like a living room of sorts, and shown a video.
Problem is, the actors were distracting us from it, so I’m still not
sure what it involved, but there were more clowns.
Confused about what exactly we were about to see, we were let loose into
the house, into a very well detailed bedroom scene, and taunted by a few smaller
girls. Kudos to these girls for
keeping us spinning in circles, unsure which way to go, and using their size to
their advantage to surprise us from different angles.
is where things got a little weird. As
we were released from this room, it was almost as if we surprised the actor in
the next room, who more or less shoved us forward to meet another group.
This room was so dark we weren’t sure what we were seeing, and then we
moved on to one of the coolest scenes I’ve seen in a haunt.
It was designed as an outdoor scene, full of circus train cars, full of
scary animals, with a few actors roaming around trying to make us jump.
I couldn’t though – I was so in love with the entire set!
Right down, to a spongy “grass” floor, it was gorgeous!
moved through several scenes like this – a “big top” with an exploding
cannon (and a very creative exit!), various areas where you had to crawl for
long periods of time, very interesting use of space.
Where do I begin. 4 times,
actors in this house broke character to ask my group if we knew someone, or to
talk to their friend they were working the room with before we were completely
out. There were a few notable actors
(the girl with the puppet show/creature show type booth – fabulous!), the
ringmaster with the cannon, but overall, the acting here was disappointing.
Not only breaking character, but setting off props as the first person
entered the room, so the back few people (us) missed out on the show.
We even begged in one room to see a particular prop run, and the girl
refused! Overall, disappointed with
the actors here.
enjoyed the scenery at Boo Crew, but I’m still not sure what the theme was
supposed to be, exactly, and the actors really took away from the house for me.
At $8, it is still worth a visit, but I would love to see some actor
