Visibility / Location:
Location was at a farm that had a bus outside with the haunted house name on it. They had two light up marquee signs, but only one was lit up, and was not labeled with the name of the location. There were no signs for parking, but we were told to park on the grass field next to the haunted house. GPS brought us to the location- which is about 10 miles from the highway.
We arrived at the haunted house at 7pm, so there was little to no line. We waited for about 15 mins. There was no line entertainment of any kind.
$15.00 per person
They said they do take credit cards, but weren't able to on this night due to having trouble with the credit card machine.

We did not bump into any other groups, but it did appear to be a slow night.
This attraction had a small covered wait area that had the house rules painted on the walls. However, they were hard to read as the area was not lit up. When we were told to enter we gave our ticket to the ticket taker.
Upon entering the attraction, we found ourselves in a confined area with dark walls and lowered ceilings. It was very hard to see where we were going in a lot of the scenes. Some areas were lit up with cages over an opening where an actor/ actress would pop out. There appeared to be detailed artwork on the walls in white, but it was hard to see in the dark. A lot of the actors dialogue seemed repetitive, urging us forward. In a few of the rooms, we must have caught the actors off guard as they were on their phones as we entered the room. At one point we ran into an actor with a slit in his mouth who was in an outside area that asked us what we were doing there. I'm not sure if that was part of the scene, or if we somehow ended up in the wrong area because when he asked it seemed as if he was asking sincerely.
We did enjoy going in and out of the barn scene as it utilized the surrounding woods as part of the show. However, throughout the barn area it did feel lacking in actors and we would have enjoyed a few more 'creatures' interacting with us there.
Over -all I feel Hoppers Haunted House had some great ideas, but I do feel it missed it's mark. With a little more lighting on the details and direction given to the actors, I feel this haunt could have a lot of potential.
