My experience at this corn maze was far from anything to brag about. We arrived at the haunt at around 9:00 and it was on the busy side as we thought it might be with such nice weather. We got our wrist bands for $18.00 then went and stood by the bonfire. The storyteller was pretty good, except for the fact he would stop ever 45 minutes or so to check with the people running the event for what numbers are beginning called, as the board displaying them had worked sometimes only. The storyteller left around 11:30 from the event as he wasn’t going to get paid a minute past then he told us. Our numbers where finally called at 12:30. We then got into the haunt shortly after that and it took about 15 minutes before we even saw 1 live actor. About half way thru the maze we had to stop as we caught several people ahead of us and one of the workers (monster out of character) told us to hold on as there was a traffic jam. Pretty much this continued on and off for the second half of the maze, even coming to a 10 minute stop 3/4ths of the way thru with another live actor who was controlling traffic. At this point people behind us are yelling just lets us get out, this is horrible. We finally finished in the 45 minutes they advertised. Over I would say without stopping probably not even 30 minutes to get thru, and only about 6 live actors. The rest of the sets in the maze are set up poorly and cheaply. They use yarn to hang from the ceiling which can get tangled and get caught on your neck or other body parts. When my girlfriend talked to the owner after the haunt he said it was security that was in charge of making sure it would not get backed up.
Overall I would say this Haunt is organized very poorly. The $18.00 price tag or $25.00 VIP price tag is very over priced. I would not recommend anyone at any age to spend their money this way. The actors that didn’t end up controlling traffic are not very convincing of being scary. The sets of horror are very poorly set up and look cheap. I will not be returning to this event ever again in my life. The walk thru time is 30 minutes maybe, and not 40 to 45.
