Review


I attend The Burial Chamber Haunted Complex every year.  I have never had a lackluster experience at Burial Chamber.  Every year there is some new ghoul impressing me with their acting skills or a new fun prop or special effect.  Burial Chamber is huge and there is something for all haunt lovers.  The complex includes two traditional-style haunts,  a spooky haunt through dark woods called Phobia,  and a simulated casket ride!  An amazing amount of actors, outside entertainment and of course everyone's favorite (or at least mine) the mini-doughnut truck-YUM!


Trust me when I say, if you have never been to the Burial Chamber you need to go and if you have been there-go again.  I hear if you bring your bracelet from the previous year you get a dollar off of admission.  This is a haunt you have to experience!

Signage / Visibility / Location


The signage and visibility for finding The Burial Chamber is always excellent and every year Yahoo Maps directs me with no problems or worries.  Parking is free and you may get to park close or a tad further away if you come around the time I was there-because it was already packed with people.

Wait Area / Line Entertainment


Waiting lines are separate for each of the four haunts. Be assured that depending on whether you chose to purchase the VIP package, where you get to jump the longer lines but still will wait on a busy night, you can wait for up to an hour plus for one haunt or another. I recommend splurging on the VIP but if you can't watch the videos, short TV/movie clips, and enjoy the rest of the line entertainment.

Actors' Performance


Just like every year the actors at the Burial Chamber did not disappoint.  They are quiet and creepy, loud and intimidating, and keep to character wonderfully.  The costumes and make-up are equally pleasing.

Sets Scenes / Props / FX


There is plenty to look at while in these haunts and the props are  very high quality.  Some of my favorite scenes are the autopsy room  and the entry room for Insanity, in which you watch a video and then exit the room in a non-traditional way.  Fun, fun, fun!

Length


The Burial Chamber takes about 15-20 minutes for each of the three main haunts and about 5 minutes for the Last Ride Burial Simulator.  Excluding the line waiting and other stops for bathroom and refreshments; the haunts take about a total of one hour.  We were there for almost 2 hours from parking to getting back into our car.

Crowd Control


Crowd control is great at Burial Chamber with plenty of people to help out.  I love how it is so well controlled and set-up without looking like you are in a corral with security all over.  Security is there but is friendly and not overtly visible.

Most Memorable Moment


This year I would have to say my most memorable moment was going in the Burial Simulator.  I have been before but for those of you like me-give it another chance, it is slightly different and just as creepy.

Summary

Overall, it was another wonderful year at the Burial Chamber with scares, laughs, and a smile all the way home-after I remembered it was all just pretend...wasn't it?
