This week we went to Factory of Terror, Guinness Book of World Records holder for longest Haunted House in the WORLD!!!! Yeah...
We went here last year, too, and it had been heard that it was rearranged this year so that they could continue to hold the longest title. It was rearranged in some places, but it was mostly the same as last year. The areas where it was rearranged were not beneficial to the haunted house, it just made it seem...tedious. Like the area with the chain link fence. If you've been here, you know what I'm talking about. Just tedious.
Overall, though, this house is pretty good. It's def one to visit, though I heard that Saturdays hold an impossibly long wait time. We go on Fridays and we only waited for a little bit.
So, what's good about it? Well, it is long, and that can be good. It has really good atmosphere (as long as you don't have dumb girls behind or in front of you) and the props are really good. I think they depend on hydraulics a bit too much but, as my brother said, if they had the staff to work the house they could use that as a good distraction for a good scare. That brings up my main beef with this house. It was pretty understaffed when we went. There were some parts where you just walked around and...nothing. There was no one there. But, the actors that were there were pretty good. They have these two huge guys who work there...well, they are freaking huge. And creepy. And did I mention huge? Also, Satan is my favorite actor in the house. These actors, they have character. It's pretty cool.
Other good stuff about it? There was a pre-house before you even made it to the actual line for the haunted house. Pretty awesome. And the mirror maze. It really is pretty kick ass. The mirror maze was actually better this year than it was last year.
So, other than some parts of tediousness and the lack of actors, this is a solid house worth visiting. Make sure you get the $2 off coupon for max discountage and go on a Friday or Sunday night to avoid the lines.
Factory of Terror gets 7 out of 10 industrial disembowelments.
Next week is the last week, which is kind of sad. We are either going to Forsaken, in Mentor, or we might entertain going to Clay's Park, probably forsaken, though...
