This was my fourth year visiting Terror on Rural Street, and it is so amazing to see them continue to top their own creations year after year! TORS is an amazingly intricate, nonprofit haunt that boasts a lovely waiting area, tons of parking, shockingly cheap entry and room after room of true terror! A truly fantastic haunt!
Terror on Rural Street begins in a small town scene, and you are immediately transported in the haunted world, this year, with a confusing maze. While I love the disorienting aspects of mazes, I’ve found they are often hard to control with timing, and unfortunately this was a (minor) issue that followed us throughout the haunt. However, every actor was amazing and “got us” so many times, and I love seeing the new sets and ideas they come up with year after year. There is horror in many veins here – clowns, darkness, prison, dolls – you name it, they’ll find a way to scare you! TORS is a unique, creative haunt with a lot of passion and an intricate twisting halls that always leave me wanting more!
Signage / Visibility / Location
If you know where to go, it’s very easy to get to – you can type it right into google maps. They have an awesome light marquee, but they keep it closer to their parking lot, which is helpful but could be a little more so if it was placed a little closer to the main road.
Wait Area / Line Entertainment
Very good – I really enjoy the wait area here. It is covered with ample seating! This year they had several warm snacks (we had a pretzel) and drinks available, including jello syringe shots and some alcoholic beverages. They also had several actors walking around in this area; I always love the lady with her shopping cart full of creepy toys.
We enjoyed a LOT of good jump scares at this haunt. I feel like the actors at TORS are very committed to their roles and really embody the characters with all their dialogue and even the type of moments they employ.
Sets Scenes / Props / FX
There were a few issues with timing in a few of the scenes we encountered, but overall the haunt has a great variety of rooms, including a jail, some creepy dolls, and several new mazes this year. We particularly liked one that implemented strobe lights. There was also a room that featured moving walls, which was really unique!
At least 20 minutes. We waited only for a few minutes to go inside, but as I said, it was a very enjoyable wait.
They have a very good system here of calling up groups by ticket numbers, and don’t seem to mind if people get out of order as they enjoy snacks. It was very well organized!
Most Memorable Moment
TORS is home to a car that scares us every single year!
Terror on Rural Street is a must see haunt for me year after year, as they are always exploring new ideas creatively and the actors are amazing. You definitely will get scared! You seriously cannot beat the price, location, and general fun of this haunt!
