Dr. Scary's haunted house has been voted #1 in this region for a reason, and that is because it brings a level of macabre fun and horror that I at least had not yet experienced in a haunted house. I had gone to a lot of haunted houses when I was younger, in my mid to late teens, but I confess that attendance had dropped off in my college years, as studies coupled with a full-time job left me with relatively little time to do anything else. Now that I have graduated, it left me with more free time to go out and experience haunted houses again. Word of mouth counts a lot with me, so when a friend of mine heavily recommended this place I knew I had to check it out. And it was worth the look. Without spoiling anything, this house is effectively split into two separate experiences, with a good deal of shocks and frights between the two of them. The first half is anything but your traditional haunted house, and has plenty of things to make even the most hardened veteran of these things let out a gasp of shock or seven. The second half is labeled Pandemonium, and with good reason. The definition of Pandemonium according to dictionary.com is wild uproar or unrestrained disorder and the second half of Dr. Scary's fits that definition to the letter. If tricky mazes and puzzles is your thing, there is no better place in this area to feed that part of your brain than Dr. Scary's. Taken singularly, each of these could be an attraction on its own, but taken in combination Dr. Scary's is the complete Halloween experience from beginning to end, and will leave you breathless and laughing in the night air, wondering what just happened and begging to do it all over again.
