Google Maps took us directly to the haunt. There was a sign with flashing lights that made it easy to find. There was plenty of on-site parking.

Wait Entertainment:

When waiting for the haunted woods, there is some covered and some uncovered waiting. The Trail of Lost Souls has covered waiting, with a DJ and there was a stage area for live bands. Watch out for the electric chair!!

Scare Factor:


Crowd Control:

In both the trail and haunted house, we were spaced out enough that we never ran into any other groups or even heard any of them.


This was my first time to this haunt. I'm upset with myself for never going before now! This one is probably my favorite of the season so far. They had a great balance of old school scares and animatronics. All the staff we encountered were extremely helpful and friendly.

First you go through the Trail of Lost Souls. There were lots of jump scares and all the actors were very well hidden, so you didn't see them coming. There were so many cool props everywhere. I would've loved to go through a second time just to be able to check out all the neat props they had. The mausoleum was very creepy!

The Haunted House was my favorite of the two. They give you a flashlight when you enter and they say when it flashes, there are spirits around you. Even when the flashlight flashed and vibrated, you knew something was coming, but you didn't know when or from where. You first step into an elevator and there is a screen in the floor that really makes it seem like it's moving around and falling, it was very cool! There were so many different rooms/scenes we went through with so many cool props, I could definitely go through it several times just to take it all in! You couldn't tell what was fake or what was a real person. The smells changed with every scene, which really helped the creep factor. They had a clown maze with some actors behind plexiglass so you couldn't tell you were actually safe from them.

Both haunts had great props and actors. Boo Crew does a great job of balancing old school jump scares and high-tech props! If you haven't been, GO!
