There were 2 of us so we were placed with another father and daughter to go through the house. As we walked down the side of the house and was placed in a small enclosed wire cage.
As we were entered the house a half dead security guard met us in the first room to read us the rules. Standing in the room while the guard explained to us what we were walking into, a mental asylum. As I stood there, all I could think about was that the security guard was really in a need of a bath. It smelled a little, well a little like poo. Well it was not him, sorry Scary Security Guard. The first room that we walked into was a bathroom that contains several toilets. Ok this was the poo smell. Nothing better than Sinister Scents in a haunt! The room was absolutely disgusting! I loved it!
As you walked into the next room, the crazy clowns were loose. The clowns were hopping on and over beds, laughing, and just completely in your face.
Walking down a dark narrow hallway you could see the open fuse box and wires on the wall. Add a few sparks and loud noises and this made the startle for the house easy to achieve.
One of the standout areas was the doll room. Imagine tons of dolls, that no one wants to play with. Plus add in a couple of dolls that are alive. One doll, with pigtails, even decided that maybe I should be separated from my group. Even though she was smaller than me, she was not going to let me proceed. She was a showstopper in that room.
As you were walking into another dimly lit room a pneumatic prop got you from a corner while another scare came from a drop down stone wall.
The finale room, was an in your face clown, wielding a chainsaw. He made sure that you were running out of the house.
Actors wore both masks and make-up. All matched their scenes perfectly. All of them remained in character. Even while they were resetting their scares, they remained in character.
