Haunted High presents Dark Carnival

by beezers after attending on Saturday, October 1, 2011 at about 2 p.m.

Fun Factor: Medium Fear Factor: Medium


Big building. Volenteer staff needs work with timing.
We were in line and the fire alarm went off and we were evacuated from the building. Lost our place in line. Waited again and just as we got within a couple of groups the alarm went off again and we were evacuated again. They tried to get people back in by ticket number but we lost our place in line again. They should have checked to see if the fog would set off the old alarm system.


For a volenteer house this one was pretty good. The Rocky Horror part was lame but it may have just been the first night or lack of fog which wrecked this.

Read your review, and while I appreciate your opinion on the 2 fire alarms, I question calling the animated show "Lame". Whether or not you are a fan of the subject.... to see 12 animitronic figures synced to a sound and light show that runs over a 1/2 hour is well short of "Lame".
Any other attraction would market a show like this as a second attraction and hit the public with another charge.... Rather Haunted High Offers it within a haunt that already goes on for 20 to 25 minutes.... With the addition of the show a customers experience could be as long as 45 minutes to an hour.... a point you missed in your review.

I don't believe that you have attended many, if not any other attractions that offer anything like this show.

I hope your opinions were just soured by the disruptions of the alarms you experienced...your apraisal now is dated re: the alarms ( which are now rectified ).

Your review only unfairly hurts the attraction as prospective customers will assume that the alarm will continue to ruin their experience. which it will not.

I did not find your review helpful, not even close.
