Summary: Of all the haunted houses we've been to, this one was by far the most unique. The place really was in the middle of nowhere, and it's a good thing they had signs up directing us on how to get there. Once we go there, there was a nice bonfire cooking to make the atmosphere perfect.
We paid to get in, and the guide was keeeping us entertained. The scenery was outstanding, with things like Satan's bathroom, the crazy doctor, and the serial killer in the next room.
The best part by far was the trip to the next stop where the guide was very helpful. I don't want to ruin it, but the lighting was influenced by something, and there was another person at the beginning to hand you somehting before going in. It was incredible.
What made this attraction stand out is the effort they put forward. The actors truly cared, and did their best to scare you. On top of that, the bonuses and unique attractions really gave you your money's worth.
We truly were scared, and felt like the only ones in this house. They truly did things that were unique, and didn't do the traditional chainsaw, and dark mazes that you couldn't escape. They even talked to us at the end, which showed that they cared and were class act people. My girlfriend was really scared, and that really made her night by them doing that.
If you want something that will truly scare you, and give you something unique, go to the Dark! Do not go the Haunted Hayride, as that was truly just for little kids.
