The tour began in a very
interesting way, with patrons walking down a coffin-shaped
hallway. Along the length of the hallway were small monitors
that played a short video sequence. From there, the tour
continued through various simple scenes that were separated by
long, dark hallways. A lot of the scenes and pathways had plain
black walls. Evil Intentions was a unique attraction, as it
didnít have a lot of detailed scenes or animatronic props. To
set the mood, they relied primarily on fog, colored lighting and
The existing features of the building itself, like the cold
brick walls and cement floors, helped maintain a spooky
atmosphere throughout the attraction. In certain areas patrons
had to walk up and down stairs, giving the haunted house a more
interactive quality. Creative hidden exits in various rooms also
added to the overall atmosphere.
In the morgue, there was a wall of morgue drawers and bodies
laying on three tables. One area featured stacks of 55 gallon
drums that an actor jumped up onto. They had a pallet maze and
in another area, there was a cage maze with a zig-zag path and
strobe lights. Other scenes included an open casket funeral, a
room full of swinging bodies and an actor holding an electric
grinder that shot sparks.
Most of the actors performed high energy attacks. The majority
of the scare tactics were actor pop-outs and yelling. A lot of
the actors had similar characters, with many wearing plain dark
clothes, masks and hooded robes. Some areas of the house were
well-staffed; however, there were several areas that seemed a
little quiet, so a few additional actors would have enhanced the
Chainsaws were used inside the attraction in a number of areas.
While I personally donít think that is a good idea (because of
the fumes), it did result in some nice scares.
The Evil Intentions crew put on a good show this year, making
some improvements over last yearsí performance. While it was
priced a little on the high side, this haunt is definitely
entertaining and worth checking out.
