Summary:

The house itself is in the basement of one of the buildings of St. Pascalís. To start with, the waiting room is set up with an actor and a coffin, the actor lays out the rules of the house for you.

You then go down in to the dark recesses of this building, and it looks menacing with all the fog and the boiler area being one of the first things you see. You go through several scary corridors with several actors pop out at you, then get to an oil barrel area, followed by a cemetery area complete with the usual ghouls and creatures. You then go through several more corridors followed by a zombie area, then through some skeletons in cages with actors lurking around ready to pop out at you.

Next is a mirror maze, which was a little tricky to get through. You then go through an electrocutionís prison area, followed by a camouflage area which leads in to a jungle area with monsters all around you. This leads in to a clown area with several menacing clowns. Then you go in to a butcherís room done up with a scary butcher with all the random meats, followed by ghosts leading you through the plastic walls closing in.

A pitch black maze follows, which then leads in to a house area, starting with the living room, which then goes in to a doll room, with dolls in random pieces which was a little disturbing all the while many actors ready to scare you. You then go in to a childís room, which then you have to duck and escape through the closet.

The hillbilly area is next, with a few scary hillbillies, then you go through the corridor, which leads you back to where you come in.
Overall, I think The Catacombs house was pretty good. Considering all the actors are kids, and much of the paintings on the wall seemed to be done by the students, they tried really hard to be as scary as possible. While the details and length of the house may not match up with some of the bigger houses, the scare factor is up there with some of the more elaborate houses, and is sometimes better than the other houses.
