When I arrived at Factory of Fear, I purchased my ticket at the booth, got a wristband, and got into line. There were only about 2 groups in front of me so the wait time was not long at all. Someone took a photo of my group and then it was my turn to enter the haunt.
The first room I entered was themed like a creepy monastery. There was a very scary looking nun that followed me around and the music that played in the background set the mood even more. Everything in this area was very detailed and well put-together.
The next area that I saw was redneck themed. One of the monsters called himself Cletus and he was pretty funny. There was also an area in this haunt that was themed like a crazy cat lady's house. As we walked through it we could hear cats meowing and crying. I thought this was something unique that I had never seen before at a haunted house.
I walked through a few rooms that had nothing in them other than a mattress on the floor. I thought these rooms could have been utilized better, maybe with some actors or just more details put in place.
I then walked into what was a haunted hospital area, with nurses and patients. This area did a good job of scaring me and I think I even screamed a few times from the jump scares! I had my 7 year old nephew with me and some of the actors in this area gave him a sucker which he loved!
I went through a few more rooms and then it got to the end. My only complaint was that it ended very abruptly and I was somewhat confused as to if this was another area of the haunt or if it was over. It would be nice if there was some sort of transition so the haunt doesn't just end so quickly.
Overall, I thought that Factory of Fear did a great job at making a good haunt this year. The actors were doing a great job of being creepy and scaring me. They had a nice mixture of jump scares and areas with no jump scares. The characters costumes and makeup were all done very well and I could tell that everyone was excited to be there scaring us!
