Considering that this is their first year in a new location, Dream Reapers put on an excellent show. They have redesigned their entire attraction. This is definitely not the Dream Reapers that everyone is used to. Adopting a different approach, some of the larger scenes have been eliminated in favor of a more streamlined path. Their new design eliminated square corners and added a lot of twists and turns, making the event faster and more
action-packed. Their new design did have drawbacks,
though. The transition between areas was not as pronounced
as in previous years and scenes seemed to run together.
great new feature they had this year was called "the grinder".
It was a blood-stained spinning vortex, illuminated by a strobe
light, with bloody tattered cloth hanging down that you had to
duck under. It was quite a mesmerizing effect.
Another one of their new additions this year was the backwoods
mansion. With country music playing in the background, you
were subjected to such sights as a disgustingly dirty kitchen
and a bloody bathtub with a girl being attacked right before
your very eyes. This run-down-looking scene had plaster falling
off the walls with light shining through the exposed boards,
which was somewhat reminiscent of "The Texas Chainsaw
highly detailed graveyard was enhanced this year with an even
tighter, winding path. Other enjoyable areas included the
boiler room, torture chamber, the bloody morgue, the insane
asylum and the toxic waste scene that featured leaking barrels
of toxic waste, which had eaten a hole through the wall.
season, Dream Reapers relied less on animatronic props and more on actors for their
scares, which seemed to work in their favor. The actors all did a great job, from start to finish. They knew
their roles and followed through without missing a beat. They never broke character and most of their attacks were right on target.
Dream Reapers really put on a fine show this season.
Unfortunately, they raised their admission price,
making their attraction one of the highest priced events that I
had attended all season. But taking everything into
consideration, Dream Reapers did put on a very entertaining
here to find out more about this event.
