Visibility/Location: Fables Studios was located in a small strip mall. It was very easy to find and had fair amounts of parking! You can't miss it!

Wait Entertainment: Not much of a line when we went, but they had a circus ring leader directing you to the ticket booth.

Length of Event: 15 minutes.

Actor Performance: Outstanding! The actors made this haunt. It was extremely interactive and we were completely immersed in the tasks they had us complete.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Beautiful! The actors did a good job at controlling the flow of the haunt.

Appropriate Ages: All ages!

Props / Special FX: Awesome detailed hand made props, scents, and fog really made this haunt come alive!

Summary: So let me start out by saying I am a real stickler when it comes to haunted attractions. I must admit, I'm very annoying at times. To me there are two types of haunted house owners in this industry. The ones who live for it, and the ones who do it for a hopeful hefty paycheck. Fables studios lives for this and you can tell right when you enter the first room. For the first time in a strip mall haunted house I forgot I was in a a strip mall. They truly immersed me in an interactive experience. As I followed the instructions, pushed buttons, and slid my way through tight spaces I felt like I was in another world. They also did a great job at keeping a theme throughout the haunt. For once I wasn't jumping from a butcher shop to an alien autopsy table. The scares were strategically placed and surprisingly startled me a couple times! If you are looking for Freddie and Jason or a bunch of blood and guts you won't find it here. And no, it's not terribly terrifying. It's simply well thought out, entertaining and keeps you wanting more!! I am excited for fables studios future! Do yourself a favor and visit this unique attraction. For 10 bucks you can't beat it!
