I have attended this event in the past and continue to be impressed with the production.
I will detail some specifics of the haunt in the effects section, but I want to be careful not to foreshadow too much of what you will experience at the Fear Grounds.
The Fear Grounds is one of the more highly decorated attractions in the State, and rightfully so.
I attend a lot of Halloween productions around the nation and the Fear Grounds presents on a high level.
Follow signage to the Expo Center to your destination.
Actors will visit you along your way as you wait.
There is a snack trailer at the Fear Grounds, as well.
Expect long wait times. This is a popular attraction.
They make efforts to attend to the guests and interact in attempts to scare and startle.
Dialogue is witty and we were impressed with the make up and characterizations of the performers.
The presentations were quite polished.
Morgana's Torment presents an extensive series of mazes to confuse and disorient the guests. This makes for a distinctive, different and challenging Halloween experience.
Unstable is probably the most interactive with the actors and their dialogue is amusing. The theme of this haunt is redneck, hillbilly country life and you will pass through numerous sets where you will get to experience their chores, first hand.
Be sure to allow ample time for your visit.
Crowds are moved through a series of corrals before being led into the attractions in small groups.
Law enforcement is present on site, as well.
If I were forced to pick a highlight, I would say the entire passage through Morgan Manor.
I appreciate detail and the entire route through the Manor provided much to attend to, which just increased the startle values for me since there is so much to notice.
