Review

Very impressed!!! I probably attend between 5-10 haunted houses each season and I have to say this one has made it into my top 5!

Let's start with the beginning...we got to the event and parked, it was pretty easy to find as someone guided us to the lot. The part that sucked was walking down a steep, long hill to the bottom after raining all day. It took me about 20 minutes to get to the bottom because I kept slipping. It would have been nice to have some hay thrown down to make it easier (like you did on the trails) or have a wagon pick people up and drop em' off - just a thought for next year.

We make it down and there are 2 bonfires roaring and a dj/beer tent area. It was pretty cool and unlike any other waiting area - I was impressed. The wait seemed like nothing because we were able to sit around the fire and have a few drinks first. The 2 things I didn't like about the wait were 1) the porta pottys - they were DISGUSTING, and not like normal porta potty disgusting, they were well beyond. Many were missing toilet paper and all of them had sanitizer. They were also on a slant so it made you feel like you'd fall over. 2) The "bartenders". There were 3 girls serving beer and none of them could keep it together/were obviously highly intoxicated. We were ignored several times after flashing our money (and waiting in line) and they just kept their focus one area which was irritating. Ourselves and another unrelated group were irritated by this. They also charged us the incorrect prices and told us that our beers were "Bud Light" after we asked for "Spotted Cow"...this happened 2x. I don't care if people are having a few beers while doing this (the guys by the entrance points in the house were too but were completely composed and friendly) but keep it together. It just looks trashy.

So the wait goes by pretty quickly and we get in. I don't want to give anything away but the first 2 parts are pretty cool. The actors gave a good performance - jumping out of trees, running at you, sneaking up behind you and I LOVED that there were actual "people" from The Hills Have Eyes - totally cool!

We get to the ski lift and it was a really nice addition. It was pretty foggy out so it definitely added to it. The last haunt was fun as well. My only suggestions would be to make it darker and have actual rooms instead of a maze...more actors in that part would have been cool.

You give my favorite haunted house a run for their money! I will definitely be back next year!

Summary

Great haunt. Reasonably priced and the wait is great because they have a bonfire, dj, and beer tent! Well worth the money, I will be back again next year!
