The introduction scene really
helped to set the mood for the
rest of the attraction. The tour began with customers watching a
scene through a small window in a door, near the attraction's
entrance. Evil clowns and other characters
were seen attacking a group of people, with gruesome results. Just about the time the carnage was over, something
surprising happened that made everybody jump. From there, patrons
entered a coffin shaped hallway and continued on through the
rest of the attraction, which consisted of several simple scenes of
varying themes. While there
wasn't an overabundance of detailed scenes, the Evil Intentions
crew did a fine job of utilizing the creepy natural ambience of
the building, to create a spooky atmosphere. The
attraction was held inside of an old brick factory building,
which is a great backdrop for haunted attraction.
Some of the more memorable scenes
in the haunted house were the morgue, the funeral, and the medical lab.
In the morgue scene, morgue drawers lined
one of the walls and three metal tables filled the center of the
scene, each with decomposing bodies and skeletons laying on them. As
patrons walked through the room, a creepy girl in a wheelchair informed us
of our impending doom. The funeral scene featured a woman in a
black shroud, who was sitting next to the casket. The
medical lab had assorted test equipment with flashing lights,
stacked on shelves. There were also white lab coats hanging
One large section of the attraction
featured a maze of tall standing pallets, with strobe lights
shining through the cracks. As patrons made their way through
this section of the house, they were stalked by several
actors. Heavy metal music could be heard playing in the
background, for added effect. One of the improvements they made this
season was the addition of some visual effects. In one room,
there was a projection of bloody hand prints on the wall, as
well as bloody hand writing that appeared from nowhere.
Overall, they seem to be fairly well
staffed on the night that I attended. Most of the actors had
very similar characters, wearing black trench coats and masks.
Most of the actors had high-energy performances and their scares
were properly timed, however, the overall impact of their
attacks was diminished because the masks they were wearing distorted and muffled their growls
and made any words they uttered completely unintelligible.
The Evil Intentions crew
did a nice job this year. I really enjoyed the new visual
projection effects as well as the overall creepiness of the
brick factory building the event was held in. This haunted
house was a lot of fun, but considering the admission price, I
wish the tour had lasted longer.
