Fear Factory will present you with two floors of attractions. One of the floors is exclusively 3D effects and is themed on various nursery rhyme characters.
The principle floor is more traditional in its presentation, but features some elaborate sets.
There were numerous live actors throughout the factory who gave good performances, especially considering it was an opening weekend. The dialogue was fairly witty.
We had no problem finding the Factory using a GPS.
Despite there not being many people in line when we arrived, we had to wait about 20 minutes or so to enter.
There was an actor at the entrance who played the roll of a bumpkin and made attempts to interact with people in line.
The producers of the factory did a very creative presentation with their darker takes on nursery rhymes.
As was mentioned, one floor is devoted entirely to 3D effects.
The Factory made use of some interesting lighting effects and even featured a live guitarist at one point.
There are some organizational problems with the layout of the house, however, as our group got off track several times and in one instance accidentally exited the main area and ended up outside the walls.
It appears that if the line is long, it will exit the covered area inside the building and extend to an exposed area in front of the attraction, so be mindful of that in the event of rain.
There was one portable toilet inside the entrance area and a concession stand, as well.
We found the person who affected the Cinderella character to have been particularly amusing. The clown who introduces you to the 3D area was humorous, as well.
