Review This Haunt
  • Predictable

    Too expensive to be doing the same thin over and over. Not to mention your in line for hours to go through a house that takes 10 min.

  • Just so-so

    This particular haunted house is very expensive and even more so if you choose to get the express tickets. Otherwise, you will be waiting in line for hours. The house itself is not that scary and takes about 10 minutes to go through. I have been to much better haunted houses in smaller times for half the price. If you live in the Austin area and have money to blow, then this is not a bad experience. However, I encourage you to find other venues, especially if you are a Halloween fan.

  • Pricey

    It is expensive, but there are a lot of props, so it is understandable. Lots of flashing lights and loud noises, par for any decent haunted house. I think there was a bit too much of the actors jumping in your face and being loud, which kind of prevented me from really being able to enjoy it and see all of the designs that so much time and money went into setting up. Plus, it may have been just my luck, but for me it seemed like the actors chose the places to jump toward me where there was a possibility for me to injure myself. (ex - right when I was walking by a chair whose leg was awkwardly jutting out for me to bump/trip over, a place where there was a trough and the floor stepped down, a perfect place to twist an ankle or something) This happened several times throughout the first house so I felt like it could have been intentional. The first house is the best, I wish I would have been able to slow down in it because the 2nd and 3rd features (yes, there are 3) were not nearly as good. The second had fewer actors, which was good. They should reverse the order. Although the rules say you can't touch the actors, they get so close to you (sometimes actually touching you) that it makes for a very uncomfortable element, especially if you have personal space issues. Perfect for a "scare" but I am a bit older and would have liked to enjoy the visual stuff more than just getting jumped at for a cheap surprise scare. I mean, you can do that without any costume on even, why waste all of the money on the scenes? And most of the actor costumes/make-up jobs were awesome!!!!
