Haunt Review: FIELD OF SCREAMS THE HAUNTED STADIUM

I had the great pleasure of attending Field of Screams: The Haunted Stadium’s latest offering which is being put on by the guys at Sinister Valley.  To best describe the story, I will use my own plot summary of the event

Haunt Review: The 17th Door Haunted Holiday

Welcome witches and warlocks,

I had the pleasure of attending THE 17th DOOR: HAUNTED HOLIDAY this year and figured I would offer up a few thoughts on the event for my fellow haunt enthusiasts. Just so everyone knows where I am coming from, I was able to attend their Halloween iteration this year so I already knew some of what was in store.

Haunt Review: Field of Screams The Haunted Stadium

Welcome witches and warlocks,

I had the pleasure of attending Field of Screams: The Haunted Stadium and figured I would offer up my thoughts.  Just so everyone knows where I am coming from, I have never attended this event in the past, though it has been on my radar for quite some time.  Like my other reviews, I will be putting the houses in the order that I saw them with some random thoughts on the other going ons thrown in for good measure.

Haunt Review: NIGHT SHIFT

Haunt Review: NIGHT SHIFT

Welcome witches and warlocks,

I had the great pleasure of attending the haunted attraction Night Shift and figured I would offer up my thoughts for fellow haunt enthusiasts.  To best describe the plot at play, I will use my own story summary:

"We are pressed into service as the new overnight crew at a warehouse where mysterious goings on have occurred."

Haunt Review: SINISTER VALLEY

Haunt Review: SINISTER VALLEY

Welcome witches and warlocks,

I had the great pleasure of attending visiting the haunted house Sinister Valley in Temecula, California and figured I would offer up my thoughts for my fellow haunt enthusiasts.

Haunt Review: THE QUEEN MARY'S DARK HARBOR

Welcome witches and warlocks,

I had the pleasure of attending The Queen Mary’s Dark Harbor this year and figured I would offer up a few thoughts on the event for my fellow haunt enthusiasts.  Just so everyone knows where I am coming from, I have never attended this event in the past, though it has been on my radar for quite some time.  Like my other reviews, I will be putting the houses in the order that I saw them with some random thoughts on the other going ons thrown in for good measure.

Haunt Review: KNOTT'S SCARY FARM

Recently, Craig, Melinda, and Megan had the chance to attend Knott's Scary Farm's opening night and offered up a few thoughts on the event for all you haunt enthusiasts. All three had never attended Knott's Scary Farm before so they were eager to take on the granddaddy of theme park haunted attraction. The following is their recap of each of the haunt mazes and scare zones they took on. 

Haunt Review: THE 17TH DOOR

Haunt Review: THE 17TH DOOR

Welcome witches and warlocks,

I had the pleasure of attending THE 17TH DOOR: LOCKED UP this year and figured I would offer up a few thoughts on the event for my fellow haunt enthusiasts. Just so everyone knows where I am coming from, I have never attended this event in the past, though I am well aware that it is a semi-continuous story. I also was able to participate in their VR experience too so I will be putting up some thoughts on that to boot. 

Haunt Review: HALLOWEEN HORROR NIGHTS HOLLYWOOD

Haunt Review: HALLOWEEN HORROR NIGHTS HOLLYWOOD

Welcome witches and warlocks,
 
I had the pleasure of attending Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios Hollywood this year and figured I would offer up a few thoughts on the event for my fellow haunt enthusiasts. Just so everyone knows where I am coming from, I have only ever attended the Universal Studios Orlando version of this event, so I was eager to go to this event.  That being said, I did only get to go through each house once, so my thoughts are limited to a one time view which may not account for any bad runs or improvements made over the course of the event.  Like my other reviews, I will be putting the houses in the order that I saw them with some random thoughts on the various shows and scarezones I saw thrown in for good measure.

Haunt Review: Busch Gardens Williamsburg's Howl-O-Scream

Haunt Review: Busch Gardens Williamsburg's Howl-O-Scream

There is something to be said about a haunt that combines terror, gore, and hot men and women. For some reason, it seems to just go together, like two puzzle pieces meant to fit into each other perfectly.  When I first heard about GORLESQUE! I was attending Monsterpalooza and was very intrigued with their marketing.  In front of me stood a large cage, around 8 ft tall, which housed a dancer scantily clad and looking a bit worse for wear.  The reason being is that she's not exactly alive, but that didn't stop the hordes of men (and women) from taking selfies with her as she tried to make all those that got near her into a little snack.  Fast forward a few months to Midsummer Scream and guests had the chance to experience their mini version of what they would be offering come Halloween time.  Having had the chance to go through their mini experience and come face to face with the world of Dr. Weltschmerz, I can say with certainty, that this was one of the haunts I was looking forward to the most.  

Haunt Review: Haunted Overload

Haunt Review: Haunted Overload

Welcome witches and warlocks,

A few weekends ago I had the pleasure of attending Haunted Overload in Lee, New Hampshire. For those who have never heard of it before, it is a haunted trail that has won ABC's The Great Halloween Fright Fight and also consistently ranks high on Hauntworld's list of scariest haunts. Given the fact that it was getting such high praise, I figured it was time I finally gave it a look to see what all the fuss was about. 

Haunt Review: Horseman's Hollow

Haunt Review: Horseman's Hollow

Welcome witches and warlocks,

Today I have the pleasure of reviewing the haunted attraction Horseman's Hollow held at Philipsburg Manor in Sleepy Hollow, NY.  I am sure most of us hear the location and immediately begin to imagine The Headless Horseman from Washington Irving's classic tale "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" and on that score we would not be wrong.  In fact, Philipsburg Manor itself is just across the street from the famous Old Dutch Church so the entire event is steeped with legends of The Horseman.  How does a forty minute haunt experience centered on The Headless Horseman work, one might ask?  Well, read on to find out. 

Haunt Review: Busch Garden Tampa's Howl-O-Scream

Haunt Review: Busch Garden Tampa's Howl-O-Scream

Welcome witches and warlocks,

I had the pleasure of attending Howl-O-Scream at Busch Gardens Tampa this year and I thought I would offer up a few thoughts on the event.  To give a little perspective, this marks my seventh year attending Howl-O-Scream so, since they sometimes repeat a house with minor changes, my perspective may be a little different than that of a first time attender.  Like with my other haunt reviews, I will put the houses in the order I saw them, not necessarily from favorite to least favorite.  Now, onto the review!
