We’re gonna go on a limb here– and assume that if you have served in the military, were part of or currently partake in a biker club, and/or murder people in cold blood, or have been divorced at least twice…you probably won’t be scared. No? You really want a legitimate answer? Fine. But this is a tough one. It depends. Sometimes little girls walk through giggling, and grown men in the military cry like babies. Or vice versa. It’s unpredictable and hit and miss, but we do try our best to have a little bit of a lot of different types of scares that aren’t just people jumping out and screaming at you. We try to attack all the senses with sight, touch, sound, and even smell. Haven’t mastered taste yet…but one day.
A lot of places claim to be the scariest haunted attraction in the universe, #1 haunt on the planet, top 100 haunts in the 21st century, blah blah blah. But here’s a little insight: those “rankings” aren’t actually rankings. Those are paid levels in DIRECTORIES on haunted attraction directory websites. Which means they are listed in the “top five” on a directory website, but that doesn’t mean that critics came out and reviewed their attraction and compared it to others in the surrounding area. There are a LOT of them. More than you probably realize. That being said: we’re not saying the other places aren’t good. And we’re not saying we’re the best. But we DEFINITELY do things VERY differently here. There are merits to all the different types of attractions that cater to a variety of different people with different tastes.
We always make changes every year to improve and listen to negative reviews with open minds. Some people say we’re the most terrifying thing they’ve ever experienced…and others walk out saying they didn’t like. It’s rare, but it does happen. We will however boast that two completely separate organizations of local critics (who review and compare haunts in this state) have ranked us as #1 on their lists of recommended haunts in 2014, 2015, and 2016– and in 2016 a public poll was taken with one of those organizations where we won the People’s Choice Award for being an audience favorite in this state. We also don’t buy billboards or radio ads of any kind because (simply put) we don’t need to. We get more than enough customers on word of mouth alone. So…that has to mean something right?
