The entertainment director, Eric Guetterman, says they work hard on the timing and placement of actors to ensure a scare that will send you flying. It’s not just actors setting the stage for scare factors either. This is a haunted house amateurs should avoid.

Next on the age

nda of fear is the Blood Bath Haunted House. After a trip into this damp and musty environment you won’t leave the same. Creativity is taken to a level that was un

reachable before this talented team brewed up an idea unmatched by any haunted house in the industry. All guests are equipped with a poncho, and not just for the effect of it. Water shoots from streams and unexpected places to make sure you are dripping with fear when you leave. Well, that is if you make it out.

Both haunted houses are genius at coming up with new scare factors unique only to Fright Fest. This Haunted House takes no shortcuts. It takes 4,000 hours to set up, uses 275 gallons of fog juice, 2,7000 feet of cob web and 10 semi tricks are needed to unload gory materials.
