This is by far the best haunt attraction around, we go every year and always enjoy the hard work and effort they put into it. They are great at changing it up every year so it is never the same and the price is perfect. However, this is the first year we "opted out" for the Black Out. I am shocked and surprised that anyone would "hood" patrons with a hood that is used over and over. We are in the beginning of influenza season and just knowing someone elses mouth and nose (not to mention hair) excrements in those hoods to say the least is disgusting and irresponsible. The 19 year old at that was the host at the door actually bullied the young girls in front of us (when they wanted to opt out) into putting the hoods on and snottily told them they were quitters and that they cant quit and said "no one has gotten lice or sick or ebola from these hoods" and then he said "they are sanitary and get dry cleaned" which they are NOT because if they were SANITIZED they would be in sealed plastic. And there is NO dry cleaner in town that would dry clean 1000s of these hoods in a night, the cost would be outrageous And "dry cleaning" is NOT even a "washing". Then when we got up I asked "if we could keep the hoods to throw away when we were done (they are a 25 cent hood that is disposable) and he said No! We didnt have a problem opting out since its a great haunt and we felt we got our monies worth but I had a guest who had never done these and I wanted her to have the full experience but this disgusting hood thing was not worth anything. He got very snotty with us and we even told him we didn't really care about missing the haunt I just wish I would have known about the hoods. (it is mentioned on their web site but you have to read all of it) So, the bottom line is the haunt was great, the hoods were irresponsible in todays world and the host of the Black out was an uneducated snotty young man.
Beware that you have to put a used gross germy hood on your head and no matter how clean they tell you they are, it is Impossible unless they are in Sealed plastic!
