Hauntfest - CLOSED -

by lysergicerberus after attending on Saturday, October 2, 2004 at about 5 p.m.

Fun Factor: High Fear Factor: Medium


Signage / Visibility / Location

If you know where the State Fair grounds are, then it's easy to find. Just look for all the lights and activity.

Wait Area / Line Entertainment

Zombie Trail- We had no entertainment other than basic creepy music. Our wait was outside, but there is a staging area in the pavilion. 3D Fear Factory- the wait was inside and not very long.


Zombie Trail- Our wait was about 15 minutes, although we were told we would only wait 5 minutes. The event lasted approx. 20 minutes. The maze took the longest amount of time. 3D Fear Factory- the event lasted approx. 5 minutes.

Actors' Performance

The actors were into their roles. However, there could have been much more effort put into the overall experience.

Appropriate For

3D- all ages. Zombie Trail- 13+


The 3D Fear Factory is geared more towards the younger crowd, as it is not scary. It is entertaining, but not for $10. 3D effects are pretty cool.
The Zombie Trail is noted as having a "brutal fear factor", this could not be further from the truth. The zombie theme was well planned and executed, but the only scary part of the event was the maze, and only because it was pitch black and dead quiet.The anticipation of an actor jumping out heightened the experience, but there were NO actors in the maze! What gives?! Not worth $10 either. Better luck next year.
