| Overall Score:|
|Scare Factor: Medium | Atmosphere: Good|
Visibility/Location: The Forest of Fears is easy to find with the big classic hearse sitting out front with the logo for PreparedToScare on it.
Wait Entertainment: There are many characters walking around and posing for pictures and creeping people out.
Length of Event: about 25 minutes
Actor Performance: The actors inside were very good and stayed in character the whole time through the event.
Patron Flow Inside Attraction: They send in groups of around 12 to 16 and that is the group you stay with. They do a very good job of spacing out the groups and we didn't see any other groups in front or behind us.
Appropriate Ages: I would say about 8 and up depending on your child.
Props / Special FX: Nothing fancy here. Most of the props used are pneumatic actuators to make things move and rock and lots of compressed air shooting out at you.
Costumes / Make-up: The costumes and makeup are decent for this type of haunt.
Summary: I had never been to this haunt before and found when looking for more family oriented stuff to do with my family. I found this attraction to be quite good for the 12 dollar entrance fee (10 bucks with a canned good).
The bathroom scene was pretty neat and the entire haunt follows the premise of a highschool that met its demise and the children and spirits of those kids that didn't make it out. I also like the lighting in the wooded area.
Overall this haunt was a neat find and I'm glad I ventured through it but I was a little upset with the guy with the chainsaw. I work a haunt as well and didn't like that this guy targeted my 8 year old daughter who was obviously very scared to begin with as this was her first haunted house. He came back and stuck the saw in her face as I tried to shield her and stick my hand in his face to tell him to back down. Other than that though, the haunt is decent and fun to go through and a good value for 12 bucks.
