The Hill Has Eyes

Fun Factor: Low Fear Factor: Low


I have been hearing mixed reviews about this haunted attraction. I've read on here that it sucked or it was
the greatest thing ever! So I had to try this new attraction since it was only 10 mins away from my house.
I read that it was a Nuclear waste type thing so was excited, because more houses have just random things.

When we first got there, it was a group of 6 of us. None have ever been before because this is the first year that
these trails were open. There was somewhat of a long line which seemed not controlled. When we finally
made it down the hill to get tickets, which we couldn't find, we had to sign a wavier. I thought this
was going to be great! We got in line for the first one.

This first trail was wet, because it rained all day Friday, however they laid hay down, which was nice.
I didn't think the first trail was good. I thought the acting was par, but the costumes didn't relate
to the theme of the story. There was no interaction between the people and actors, just scenes. Also,
the girls screaming, not a fan of them yelling at you.

The second one was better than the first, but it still wasn't the greatest. There was one good scene that
had Pin head, but didn't even relate to the theme. This was just another trail with more scenes. There
was one good thing, the grave yard, but 1 out of 100 doesn't make it fun.

The scariest part to me was the lift hill. I'm just waiting for a drunk to go up that and fall. This haunted
attraction sells beer before and after the trails. I'm surprised that they do this because not many
haunted attractions will sell alcohol before their events because they risk the harm of their actors.

The final part was a small tent on the top of the hill, which can be seen from the streets. It was okay, but
still nothing was worth the $23. I heard that they were offering half off. Wish I would have known because
I rather have wasted my money on something else.


If you want to go to see if its good, don't. Unless you pay the half off. For the 11.50 it would have been
MAYBE worth it but not for the $23. For a first time haunted attraction, it looks like it.

You'll probably be waiting a long time. Crystal Ridge has been serving alcohol in their chalet since 1987. Not one fallen drunk!
