through Camp Frightmare (A.K.A Frightmare 2007) began with an
overview of the rules of the house, given by the “camp
counselor”. Throughout the attraction, they established
and maintained a haunted camp theme. The various scenes
featured bunk beds, tents, campfires and other things you might
see at a campground. A number of the scene elements like
windows, doors and assorted props were created via artwork painted on the walls,
which glowed under black light.
Some of the
scenes that stood out were the spider hallway with the giant
mass of spider webs & a huge spider in the corner, the camp dorm
where a body launched out of the bed at you and the well-detailed
“Camp Crystal Lake” scene. The only thing that didn’t quite mesh
with the overall theme of the event was the creepy organ music
that was playing at the entrance of the attraction. That
kind of music would
have fit in better with a haunted manor theme.
I visited on a weekday, there were still a lot of actors on the
night that I attended. While a number of the actors were younger
and not overly intimidating, they were all very eager to scare
Throughout the house, the actors had some really good hiding
spots, enthusiastically jumping out to surprise patrons. The
timing of their scares was right on target, for the most part.
To compliment the actors' performances, there were also some
nice animatronic props at various points throughout the attraction.
group really put on another good show this year. They followed
through with a single theme from start to finish, which is
something that they have traditionally done very well.
With its moderate scare factor, it would be appropriate for most
audiences. It was a
fun experience, although I wish it had lasted a little longer
for the admission price paid.
