The Haunted Mansion (PERMANENTLY CLOSED)

Fun Factor: High Fear Factor: High


This was the first year I was attending this haunt and I can say that I was no disappointed. A friend of mine had mentioned this event to me last year so I figured that I would make my way out to it this year. Unlike some prior places I have attended the price was not outrageous as there were a few of us that all went. There were four different aspects to this place and each connected to the next. It begins with the waiting in line (which typically is one of the worst parts I know) where there were two very cool characters that came out to entertain the crowd. The first character was this incredibly tall guy with glowing eyes. (they had a name for it at the time which slips my head right now) The next character was "Grandma". She is this old lady that is so incredibly funny who walks around with her baby buggy and her "baby" which is a baby that only a mother could love.
The second stage was the corn maze. This for me was so-so. I enjoyed the fact that it was VERY tight quarters which gave a bit of scare factor in itself but, I wasn't so crazy about the trail with it (but, that was my personal preference I am sure), with that being said the chain saw guy got me good! That is all I will say about that.
Third stage was the bus ride. AWESOME! In my mind, this was comparable to the house itself that it was nothing I had EVER seen before.
Last part was the house itself. We were pretty fortunate that the line here was not very long as it was cold when we got to the house, so we were able to get in pretty quickly. In the house there were some things that I had seen at other houses (or similar at the very least) but, used in a different fashion. The strobe jail was cool but, I really wish there would have been something or someone in this room as it could have been a simply amazing room. The elevator was funny, as our group got closer to each other than any of us could have anticipated (it simply shook the heck out of us like being in a bad earthquake which cheesy music playing in the background *funny in its own respect*)
Thanks for a great time
Overall it was a terrific experience and after being able to talk to one of the people who was involved in the creation of the house and learning that it is 100% changed yearly; they have gotten themselves a next year customer.


4 attractions for the price of one
A survivor wall to sign after you get out of the house
Very reasonable price for the amount of attraction you pay for
Great Job and can't wait to see what you all come up with next year.
