I think the creators did a good job for their first Haunted house in Racine. My girlfriend saw the clowns when we walked in and wouldn't open her eyes for the rest of the show. I'm anxious to see what they will do for next year. Shorter than a haunted hay ride but much more intense. Thanks

Review

The factory of fear was awesome!!! It was totally worth the wait in line and the money. I came with my 15 year old daughter and a friend of hers and the were scared crazy the whole way through. I applaud the people who made all this happen. It was great to have a haunted house here in Racine to give our youth something to do on a weekend night. I see from other reviews I've read that you can't please everyone, but we most definitely do not fit in that category. We hope that you bring it back next year because we will surely attend again!!!!! Thank you for a fun night!!!

Summary

Racine's Factory of Fear worth every penny!

Review

Where to begin?
I attended Factory of Fear on Friday, October 2nd with two girlfriends of mine. I'll admit that we were skeptical of how FOF was going to scare us, given two of us have worked at various haunts throughout SE Wisconsin since we were in middle school, but we tried to keep an open mind and give the haunt a chance.
When we arrived we were greeted by a really nice woman working at the concession stand. She offered us popcorn, candy, coffee, or hot cocoa to keep us warm. We said "no thank you" and stood waiting for the line to move forward. As we were waiting some actors wandered through the waiting area- something I've noticed is becoming a common "teaser" among locations. One actor, however, was a boy who was clearly a minor. He wandered toward us not in character and talked with the woman working the concession stand about getting some Skittles, then went back into the haunt. The other two actors were young women who had wandered through us in order to get out of the building so they could take a smoke break- right in front of us, no less.
After a 15 or so minute wait by the concession stand, one of the managers mentioned to someone at the front of the line that we were waiting to enter because the crew had to fix some walls that had fallen. I can tell you that those words made me feel SO incredibly safe in the building! :-/
So once we were led to the ticket booth, it started to become a little better. The booth is at the bottom of some stairs, in a kinda tiny cramped hallway- which set the mood for the abandoned factory building that the haunt is located in.
Once we purchased our tickets, which were a whopping $12.50 each, we walked up the stairs and joined two women who were starting to freak out (they entertained me through most of the haunt because for some reason they were actually scared). We handed off our tickets and made our way through the door.
Upon first glance I thought the haunt was gong to be quite interesting- the path ways that they constructed are all spray painted with graffiti which sorta glows in the dark. right away we were greeted by a chilling carnival sound, and I was ready to be scared because I am terrified of clowns. To be honest, the room was painted and constructed well, but the guy in the clown mask tried to scare us before we even entered the room, which ruined the effect for me.
That's actually a recurring theme throughout the haunt- the actors continually tried to scare the first person in the room without waiting for the people at the end, therefore ruining the experience for everyone but the first person...and even then, the first person in our group and I laughed the entire way through the haunt.
One of my biggest problems with the house is the content- the whole haunt is based SOLELY on Hollywood scary movies (Friday the 13th, Halloween, The Grudge, IT, Night of the Living Dead), and didn't utilize the idea of mental scares as well as physical.
My BIGGEST problem with the house was that every member of my group was touched once, if not more times, by the actors. One of my friends was touched by the boy I mentioned earlier, I was touched by a woman on a gurney who was having her intestines ripped out, and my other friend was touched by someone in the dark who wasn't anyone else in our group.
At the end of the haunt there was a SMALL entry room where the exit door was, and a guy wearing a Michael Myers mask holding a chainsaw who (I assume) chases you into the parking lot- and the fact that the actor had a chainsaw in hand while we were passing through such a small room bothered me because I know that people tend to freak out from chainsaws, and having it in such a small space is quite dangerous.

Summary

Overall the haunt was entertaining, as in I had a good time laughing my ass off. It was not in any way worth the cost of admission, and was FAR to short of an event for the cost. If I had to give grades, I'd say:
Scare factor: D-
Originality: C-
Overall: D

Review

HUGE Disappointment!!!

Summary

I was excited to hear that Racine finally had a Haunted attraction. The building was MASSIVE, old, and creepy (also on a creepy side of town, i.e., shootings, gang activity, etc.)But I was willing to risk the neighborhood for such an alluring Haunt. Parking was a mess even though they had at least one person I saw in the lot, he was not directing traffic (or doing anything at all but standing in one spot staring off into the distance) and many people were parked in by other vehicles standing around waiting to get out. Upon approach, there was a huge line spanning the outside of the building, through a wait area with music and refreshments for purchase, all the way up a stairwell. LOTS of people, moving VERY VERY slow. No wait line entertainers (unless you consider the actors coming out to use the port-a-potties or buy refreshments as line entertainment). Also, no props or real decor in the wait areas with the exception of one thrown together cheap Wal-Mart looking thingy. Admission was a straight $12.50, regardless of age. This attraction was worth maybe $2.50. Upon reaching the top of the stairwell, the women taking the tickets at the door told us someone actually had urinated in the attraction, so I was all pumped up and excited thinking this was going to be an amazing Haunt! It took 3 minutes to go thru this Haunt. 3 MINUTES!! And that was at a slow pace folks!! It was short, poorly constructed and poorly themed going from dirty bathroom scenes into graveyard scenes into a bedroom scene into a hospital scene, etc (you get the point--it made no sense and had no plot or story line). The props and decor (what little they had) were pathetically all homemade, as was the costuming with the exception of 1 or 2 actual costumes one might find at a Halloween store. The biggest issue I had was layout, it was very very sloppy. One of the actors hiding behind a wall with a hole in it large enough for him to stab out some hard foam prop was at an angle and this guy popped his hard foam prop right into my face and eye. This owner better be careful unless he wants a lawsuit from someone getting a serious eye injury or worse. They have this HUGE building and they used such a very small portion of it (they used maybe 3 rooms at most on 1 level out of 100's of available rooms on 3 or 4 different levels), what a letdown, and how deceiving to the patrons as well.
