Review

This year was BY FAR the BEST Hubertus House I have ever been to. I was blown away! The haunt this year is completely and totally different from years past and you could tell. Every room was new, the layout, the actors, costumes, scenes... all brand new. There are a few re-used scares from just this past year but they're only the best and they've even been enhanced.

You no longer enter via school bus and through the basement, you start all the way up on the second floor and work your way through the house.

The actors were spot-on with their stories and characters and never broke character. The make-up (WOW!) and costumes were incredible and very well done. To add to the great performances were the well-placed and perfectly executed special effects throughout the haunt. Some scenes offered some truly disgusting effects while others focused more on scare factor. Take some time in each room (if you're not running for your life) to appreciate the elements - especially in the bathroom, there are some incredible props and FX in there. The sewer tunnel was absolutely incredible, too.

Signage / Visibility / Location

Using a GPS it brings you directly to the drive way for the haunt. There's great signage out front, too.

Wait Area / Line Entertainment

There's a heated interior waiting area in the school gym with concessions. The costumed actors were very entertaining and quite good, too!

Actors' Performance

Actors ranged in age from middle school students to adults and each one of them was really talented! They were interactive and entertaining - and actually quite good at improv whenever were talking to them.

Sets Scenes / Props / FX

All brand new and incredible. Really put time and effort into making an entirely new haunt this year. Some of the best FX I've seen.

Length

Approximately 15 minutes.

Crowd Control

The actors and moderators did a good job of keeping groups away from each other, we never ran into any other groups in the house.

Most Memorable Moment

Anyone with a zipper on their face deserves credit. Wow.

Summary

Of the haunts that I've attended this year (or in years past...), this is the best one I've seen. Kudos to the organization that puts this on because you can tell the time, effort and hard work put into it to make it the best in the area and it doesn't go unnoticed. Great job guys!!

Review

“Off the chart!”, "Scare-tacular!”, Sensational!”, “Best Hubertus House Ever!”, “Unhinged!”, “I almost peed my pants!”, “Awesome!” These were the words my tour group used to describe this year’s Hubertus House of Horror.  Hands down everyone I have spoken to about this year’s edition of this haunt have agreed that this either was the best or tied for the best Hubertus House ever.

The House this year and your journey through it have received a complete facelift.  Gone were the school bus and the entrance through the basement.  Only a few of the best scares from last year remain and even those were creatively enhanced to provide a new twist to the scare.  Unlike prior years, this year’s journey began on the third floor of the house and sends you spiraling down through a whirlwind of creepy corridors, multiple mazes and countless rooms that each carry unique themes and actors performing ghoulish skits.

The special effects this year totally rocked my world!  They were frequent, very creative and effective in not only entertaining you but keeping you immersed in the action.  Rooms with extraordinary effects that I enjoyed the most included the Zombie splatter, spider cinema, the wild elevator ride, the deep tunnel sewer surprise and the Vortex.  Of course there were a lot more rooms than these five (…sorry, I lost count…) and given the unique surprises and effects found in each room my list of favorites would most likely change after each tour.

The Hubertus House is an interactive style haunt with each room containing a unique theme and skit performed by costumed actors/actresses.  The ages of these actors appeared to cover the spectrum from elementary school kids to adult.  While this haunt does contain a little gore and some loud scares I’d say it’s definitely suitable for haunt goers of all ages.

My only negative comment about this haunt was with the group sizes.  From what I observed many of the tour groups (…including mine…) had 8 people.  This made for a very tight squeeze in many of the rooms and also spoiled a few of the rooms as the skits/surprises would begin prior to entering the room.  Luckily for me 3 people in my group got lost early in the tour so most of my journey was with a group size of 5.  Some of the other groups I spoke to also shared their displeasure with group size particularly during the elevator ride.  Nobody, however, said that the group size ruined their experience and that they wished they could have toured with a smaller group.  (Perhaps next year this haunt could offer a ‘VIP’ option that would allow you to tour with a smaller group size?)

Signage / Visibility / Location

This may not be the easiest haunt to find but if you're on the right road you really can't miss it. Also, if you come across a mass of parked cars in what feels like the middle of nowhere you've probably found the right place

Wait Area / Line Entertainment

One of the best wait areas around! The Hubertus House leverages a school gymnasium to keep you warm, well fed and entertained while you wait. The concession stand was well stocked with sweets, popcorn, drinks and even burgers. Costumed actors also popped in occasionally to heighten your anticipation of what was to come

Actors' Performance

A good mix of adult and young actors delivered entertaining performances. None of them totally freaked me out but they were still very entertaining. A few of them were good at adlibbing and allowed you to interact with them

Sets Scenes / Props / FX

Some really unique sets and a few outstanding special effects. First times and annual Hubertus House haunt goers will be dazzled with this year’s thrills.

Length

Approximately 15 minutes.

Crowd Control

Get your tickets early!  This place fills up in a hurry.  Numbered tickets allow you to purchase your tickets now and come back later in the evening for immediate entry into the waiting line.

Most Memorable Moment

I can still see those glowing red eyes when I close mine!

Summary

Of the 8 haunts I’ve attended this year the Hubertus House of Horror has the best special effects.  In my opinion this year’s edition of the Hubertus House of Horror is the best ever!
