We had no problem getting to Factory of Fear. Goggle Maps takes you right there. There are multicolored lights shining on the front of the building and a big sign on the top of a fence where you need to turn to get to the parking lot.
Factory of Fear brought in a DJ for Friday the 13th. He was taking requests but mostly played early 2000's rock and new pop. They also had a couple actors in the waiting area. There was a clown who didn't do much interacting with the crowd. She would randomly walk through the area. She only made a sound or said "boo" when she was trying to get around someone. That was about it. There was another actor who stayed in the same spot because she was taking pictures of the groups. She was great! She came up and introduced herself in character and mentioned the feces on her face but assured us it was hers. She was talking to everyone and dancing almost the entire time we were waiting.

Crowd control was excellent! We didn't run into any other groups the entire time. We couldn't even hear anyone else. It was like we were the only ones there.
Factory of Fear was a lot of fun. I recommend checking this one out.
When we first arrived we parked in their parking lot and walked up to the front of the building. We saw a staircase with a blinking OPEN sign attached to it and entered there. We bought our tickets and stood in line. When we got to the front of the line we were instructed to head down a hallway. We ended up in another waiting room with just one group ahead of us. The rules were listed on the wall and we were told to read them while we waited.
Once we got inside we went through a series of rooms. There was a church, a school, a kitchen, a doctor's office, a killer's man cave, a very dirty locker room, ect. There was a clown room but the strobe light was so intense and the actors moved so fast that I had to try really hard to even be able to catch a very quick glimpse of what their makeup and costumes looked like. It took away from the scare factor to have to try that hard to be able to see what was trying to scare me. If I didn't want to see them I could have easily avoided it. I loved all the secret passages! They were very unexpected and awesome. There was an area where we had to duck down really far to be able to walk through. The actors did a great job! Most of them actually had conversations with us instead of just saying whatever line they had to say and getting back into place for the next group and there were plenty of them to keep it interesting.
