Quite possibly my favorite venue this year, 217 Terror is absolutely delightful! As a first time visitor, I was in awe at all of the detail to take in. Photos of real victims line the halls, as dismembered bodies swing from the ceilings above. The props are so realistic, you want to reach out and touch the likeness. Bodies cut in half spewed blood, and the smell!! Each room had its own odor. The laundry room had a faint smell of mold, and the bathroom.. lets just say it wasn't very nice!! The clown room had a huge cut out face I was certain someone would climb out of any second, and you never knew what was going to happen next. Floors shook, walls moved, there were lots of jump scares! The house was very disorientating, and the layout is great! Trying to find the correct path forward, you really get the sense you've taken a wrong turn at the wrong house! Once outside, your discover whom exactly has been occupying this dreadful place, and they are definitely some creepy dudes! This house has certainly become a personal favorite of mine! If you have not yet visited, trust me you are missing out!
