Hartford Jaycees Haunted House

by Jennifer Meier after attending on Saturday, October 5, 2002 at about 3 p.m.

Fun Factor: High Fear Factor: Medium


Signage / Visibility / Location

Good. There was a bright sign and inflatable ghost at the intersection. The road to the house is very dark so if you're not paying attention to street names you would probably miss it. Just a couple of paper ghosts on the sign to the park. The actual house and waiting area are spooky. The waiting area could have used some Halloween and spooky decorations.

Wait Area / Line Entertainment

Consession stand.


About 15 minutes including the trail.

Actors' Performance

Better than last year. The vampires on the trail could've thrown in some lines. The "witch" did a great job with her lines.

Appropriate For

Teens & up


Overall the house was better than last year.

I think it would've been cool if the ticket calling lady (curly hair and glasses) could have been in costume or something.

If you're not into interacting with the ghouls, this probably isn't the best haunt to go to, as they use lots of customer particpation.

Be ready for a bit of crawling and uneven terrain on the trail. High heels and skirts are a definte no-no here.

I really liked the flying whatever that came out of the woods during the trail.

Overall much better than last year but a bit short.
