Fun Factor: Very High Fear Factor: Very High


Signage / Visibility / Location

We passed the event up, but knew it as we did. It is well lit, especially considering it is on a very dark stretch of road. No signs that we saw, but look for the orange lights.

Wait Area / Line Entertainment

The wait area was cold and muddy. There was a bonfire however. No entertainment other than hearing groups ahead of us screaming their heads off. The office where you buy the tickets is indoors and there are some snacks and pumpkins for sale.


The wait went faster than it looked like it was going to. Approx. 20 minutes. They send groups of about 10 through at a time, which helps speed the line up. The event lasted approx. 30 minutes+. There were a few times we thought it was over, but it wasn't. Gotta love that!

Actors' Performance

VERY WELL DONE! The actors were very into their roles. Guys, girls and children... all were intense and scary. Great makeup and good hiding spots.

Appropriate For

13+ (Blood effects and very high scare factor)


I heard this stated by another reviewer, but this is definately the sleeper of the year. Everyone, including me (27 year old male), was scared at some point. These guys create an all out sensory assault on their audience. They use every means available to them to create fear. LOTS of actors. Creat mazes. Lighting was excellent. Plenty of distractions and surprise4s. A word of warning, be prepared to crawl through the dirt. It sucks at first, but it only amplifies the scare factor. GO TO THIS EVENT!!!!
