Lister F/X Presents Monster Mayhem Haunted Laser Tag (CLOSED)

Fun Factor: Very High Fear Factor: Low


Monster Mayhem is by far one of the most unique and interesting haunts in this area, hands down! It was only my second year attending this haunt, though it has been in business for five seasons.

This haunt is more interactive than any other I've ever been to and they have you hunting the zombies and monsters as well as each other - you're on a laser tag team and you roam from room to room together or alone (your choice) to fight the creatures.

Unlike other haunts in the area, Monster Mayhem is both accessible for all people and appropriate for all ages. This year we saw parents with children (ages 8-58). Our group this year was significantly larger than last year's -- the three of us went through with about twelve others (15 total) -- which took away some of the effect since we were constantly running into other people and couldn't go four feet without another opposing team member hitting our vests.

The only other thing that I missed this year was more of a storyline. Last year's haunt felt more complete with a beginning, a middle and an end. This time around, I felt a little thrown into the middle without any plot or reasoning as to what we were doing.

Although this haunt may not win any awards for being the most terrifying in the area, it definitely wine for most entertaining and interactive - plus it's great for all ages which is definitely a plus for families with younger children.

Signage / Visibility / Location

It's still located in the same place as previous years but since the Pizza place has closed, you enter in the rear RED door and park in the side lot. Quite easy to find, especially when using GPS.

Wait Area / Line Entertainment

There isn't a great deal of space available in the waiting area, but there isn't often a long wait since they send in groups in such large sizes. We arrived around 7:30 pm on a Sunday and went right in. No actors or other entertainment.

Actors' Performance

There wasn't an excessive number of actors in the haunt, but most were pretty good. Special shout out to the "commander" who was pretty great and the doctors who were very entertaining.

Sets Scenes / Props / FX

Not incredibly elaborate, but very well done. Some of the costumes and props were pretty great. The commander's makeup is definitely notable, too.


We were inside the haunt for about 15 minutes.

Crowd Control

Never experienced any crowd control problems.

Most Memorable Moment

Beware of the doctor's transformation!


A must-see haunt for those looking for a good time but don't like the super-scary alternatives.
