While at Massacre, overall it was a great experience. There was a lot of detail in each room. You experience many haunt themes such as doctor's operating and examination rooms, lush jungle, church, and a mansion equipped with every room in the house including the water closet with a resident. They had many jump scares, and characters and their ramblings of doom and dread that await all. A great mixture of actor / animatronics. There was digital effects added to the walls as paintings, windows, such as the flames burning inside the wall, a little fog and wood burning scent would have brought it full circle. I really liked the doll room and the joyous preacher you meet while exploring. The "Kitchen Creature" was very into the part, and nimble too. Not only the actors had great timing but the backstage prop operators were on spot too, which is important when getting gobbled up by a man eating plant. Makeup and masks seemed to be in balance, and fitting for the particular role they played. Detail of the sets helped the actors and guests become immersed in the particular situation. When you walked into the parlor of the mansion, you felt that you were ready to explore the upstairs balcony. The jungle made me think I was forging a new path while moving vines out of my way as I walked.
Fear Factory 3D, was clowned themed with actors and static props. All painted with UV reactive paint and the palette chosen seemed to give you a lot of depth. The floor was painted like a bordered walkway to help you follow the path. The color choice on the walls seemed a little more random, but the frequency use and pattern of the colors gave you a very textured effect so nothing ever looked flat. The clown actors did great and performed with high energy. Not much as a scare factor but made you feel more stalked. But if you are afraid of clowns, I'm sure you would wet yourself. There was a good amount of "in your face" action, but not overdone to prevent it making it stale. The vortex is a nice touch in this particular haunt location.
As they advertise as a 2 in 1 haunt. After you leave Fear Factory 3D you enter another area of the haunt. This is more of a post apocalyptic set and theme. With more stalking and pop out actors as you wind through the streets and metal music playing from unseen speakers. This seemed to be the arena for their iCombat attraction. As we exited the haunt we were greeted by another clown in the gift area, handing us flyers for their upcoming off season activities.
When I parked in the well lit paved lot, I soon found out that was the exit to the haunt and had to go around the corner of the building to the back which had a flagged queue leading to a ramp inside to the ticket booth. The lot there was lit in some areas and was mostly gravel and grass.
