night we visited this attraction happened to be one in which we visited two
attractions, both located inside sports domes.
this was the one that just didn’t do it for us.
the first house, “Haunted Mansion”, we were confronted by a large courtyard
area with a mansion’s façade and multiple actors to stalk us.
It was, however, wide open, so right off the bat the white ceiling of the
sports dome was extremely distracting.
were led into the first room and told the story of the house – the actor here
was extremely funny! – and then let loose into the house.
away I noticed – the walls and props were extremely detailed – but the floor
was a plastic covering that you felt like you were tripping on the whole time,
and there were no ceilings, so it completely lacked any sort of claustrophobic
feel. The actors were all extremely
high energy, and original! Not once
did I hear any generic lines, they all had something to say, and they made sure
you know what it was!
complaint here? Room sizes were
good, but the props were laid out in such a way that you cut directly across
said room very quickly. It would
have been nice to see some things rearranged so that we had to weave through the
room, making it appear longer.
exited the “Haunted Mansion” portion and were again assaulted with a wide
open “yard” of sorts, where the dome was again visible and distracting.
The actress in this area was CRAZY, though!
Running back and forth, herding us the right way without pushing us, very
entertaining. We were then let into
the detail on props, and walls? Fantastic!
But the open ceilings and plastic floor coverings almost completely
ruined this experience. Same
complaint here about the open rooms – a notable scene was a morgue type scene
with 2 big autopsy tables – these could have been used to make us weave around
– but we were sent straight past them and couldn’t really get a good look at
the details here.
in this area we also fabulous. Original
lines, bouncing off walls. The
kitchen scene was especially gross! Cannot
say enough good things about the actors here – no “get out”, nothing
unoriginal, crazy energy. Great job
At $20, I think I would have enjoyed this house more if I weren’t
constantly reminded that I was inside a sports dome.
I hate to say it, but it’s true. The
open ceilings were just far too distracting for me.
I know it seems to be a bit much to make that my main complaint, but for
a $20 ticket price, I want to admire the detail put in, not be distracted but
the puffy white view overhead.
