Bear Den Haunted Woods - CLOSED -

Fun Factor: Very High Fear Factor: Medium


The haunted forest was really a lot of fun. I was surprised at how big the haunt was, and the variety of "rooms." The price was reasonable, and the wait was fast. They sold some treats for those waiting as well. The hearse ride to the beginning of the haunt was a unique touch. The little bonfires here and there added a nice atmosphere.

Some constructive criticism:

The only real negative was that the hearse had the smell of gasoline inside. So much so that it began to make myself and others a bit nauseous. Immediately after getting off the hearse, you enter a room that they spin around several times. This added with the smell of gasoline doesn't make for a good combo.

Also, the chainsaws were a bit overplayed. The first one was a hit, but by the fourth, fifth and sixth chainsaw they start to become cliche and lose their effect. The chainsaws also reeked of gasoline.

The actors for the most part were great though they could use work on developing a character rather than the standard boo scare. And some of the actors could use some improvement on their costumes as a few wore little more than a rubber mask with a t-shirt and jeans.

Overall though, it was a lot of fun and worth the price.


Great fun, lots of fun, but room for improvement.
