Held inside the Historic – and Haunted – Egyptian Theater, Amenti is well worth checking out.
Relying heavily on very intense and fun actors and a few fun scenes, Amenti will make your journey into the afterworld a memorial one.
Consisting of many dark halls and stairways, you wind your way through the different levels of the theater itself.
Your journey begins with Ra, as it should in the afterlife. Two frightening mummies point – and follow in a silent scream behind you as you work your way into the deity’s room. Once there, a very large Ra gets in your face, while one of the mummies finds his baby in a tomb and hugs it tightly. Going up the stairs, these mummies will follow you, beckoning you back to join them in the afterlife.
The mummies in this scene set standard for the way the actors worked their way through – and out – of the various rooms. Some following you, others climbing gates and walls, some up high in an attic, while others hid neatly in little corners. One in particular – in the asylum – not only followed behind and climbed out of his cell – but crawled on the floor weaving through our little group – making the experience very creepy.
There were some areas where I had to look behind me to make sure we still didn’t have a creature following along.
This haunt relies heavily on traditional scares from their actors – and the actors excel at their work.
Consisting of many dark hallways, there are some fun scenes here as well.
The stark white asylum with winding walkways and rage inflicted maniacs who attempted to escape.
The Dentist’s office – complete with chair and an assistant who promised a very nice smile after he was done.
We enjoyed the birthday party – many balloons filled a room with huge toy blocks stood on each side of the room.
Lester’s ice cream and the clown room was another. Lester said everyone liked his ice cream – and we wanted to believe him – until he ratted us out to the clowns.
The clown room itself was filled with fun brightly colored cloth hanging from the ceiling as you walked through – filling the rooms. Flashing lights made it a little difficult to see your way around – and the evil clown who hid silently in one of the walkways.
In one of the scenes, a patient begged for help while a maniac doctor lurked nearby. Instead of simply of making an appearance from behind a wall, the doctor violently hacked her up before running after – and following us up to the stairway after.
There are a few areas where it is a complete black out – so much so I lost my way there for a little while – and had to hold my son’s hand to make it through. Was a little disorientating.
If you’re looking for a very fun and actor based haunt, Amenti is a winner. There’s some great intensity with the actors here – making it a very fun ride.
Although we came a little later, this would be great to pair up with the corn maze at Jonamac farm – and there is a special deal for this option – allowing you to continue the fun after your escape – should you dare.
