Hartford Jaycees Haunted House

by JJrakman after attending on Saturday, October 18, 2008 at about 3 p.m.

Fun Factor: High Fear Factor: Medium


The first thing you notice when you arrive at the place, is an immense crowd wating in line. We had to wait roughly 3 hours behind 300 people to get in. Luckily they sell hot dogs, and soda hot chocolate and a variety of other things, along with playing a move (ghostbusters this time) on the wall inside of a barn to help the wait move along. They state that they'll stay open until the last person comes in, so I wish I had waitied until 11 to go in, since by that time the crowd had severly diminished.

The house itself once you get in is okay. First you go though a backyard trail, where there is an assortment of ghoulsih figures dressed in cotume. but all they really do is growl at you as you walk by, and aren't used to their full effect.

Once you enter the house you are greeted by a variety of actors much better than those on the outside trail. However, the bulk of the interior of the haunted house is filled with animatronics, which aren't as scary as a good actor.

There's lots of getting on your knees and crawling through small spaces, so some aspects of it are more like a labrynthine fun house.

Alot of the scenery was really good though, and alot of great props.

While it's alot of fun to go through, the wait may not have been worth it, and it could use more actors and less animatronics.


Long wait, okay rewards.
