Throughout the attraction, there was a dark carnival
theme. Near the entrance of the haunted house, I greeted by a wacky clown
who led me into the rules room. Following the main theme of the
attraction, this first room had vertical stripes on the walls, resembling a circus tent.
The dark ringmaster, who was wearing a long dark coat, black metal-studded
gloves and a top hat, stood atop a circular platform and explained the rules of
the house in an ominous tone. From there, I continued on to various moderately
detailed scenes that followed the dark carnival theme. For the most part, transitions between
scenes were zigzag paths through lengths of dark hallways.
I really liked the voodoo room. It featured a sorceress
who levitated above the floor. All of the walls were adorned with various
bones and animal skulls. In the center of the scene, there was a table covered
with piles of animal bones and dripping candles. The sorceress provided a
nice theatrical intro for the scenes to come.
In one area, there was a zigzag path of multiple cages,
each containing several "zombie" actors and actresses. As I walked by each cage, the bloody-faced
creatures reached out at me through the bars, while emitting bloodcurdling
In the toy room, there were stuffed animals that covered
everyone square inch of the walls and ceiling. As I entered the scene, a creepy
girl crawled along the ground, while looking up at me. Very creepy! Just when I thought that's all there was to the scene, and actor
surprised me from a great hiding place.
The disgusting kitchen scene was one of the
many high-energy areas inside the attraction. One actor was repeatedly slamming
the refrigerator door, while another was actually crawling on top of it. Next to
the kitchen table, which was littered with plates
and disgusting dinner leftovers, two arguing actors were causing a ruckus.
Another actress was cooking something on the stove, in a large pot. When I
walked in, she approached me and asked if I would like to have intestines for dinner. On the counter, there
was a microwave with something gross oozing out of the open door.
I also like the magicians room. In this scene, the walls
were completely covered with playing cards and some were even hanging from the
ceiling. In the center of the room, a magician wearing a long-beaked Venetian mask
was preached atop a large box, with the girl inside it. As I walked by, he was
working feverishly to saw her in half. The more he sawed, the louder she screamed.
Continuing on with the dark carnival atmosphere, one
of the scenes was a freak show. In this area, there was a girl bound to a wall
by a metal neck collar and chains. There was also a contortionist, a wolf manlike creature and
an unidentifiable strange horned creature.
Many of the scenes in this haunted house
were interesting and well thought out, but the real strength was their crew of
actors. Their energetic performances really kept me on my toes.
Also, the house was very well staffed. There were no dead spots in the
attraction. Every scene had at least one actor, and in some cases, several
Honestly, when I saw that this event was being held in a park
building, I wasn't sure what to expect. All I can say is that I was
pleasantly surprised. This attraction was a lot of fun to go through. I highly
recommend you check them out. It may be a little smaller than some other
attractions out there, but the high-energy performances from the actors and the
low admission price make this event a "must see".
