2011 SCREAM TEAM
We would like to have you meet our highly qualified and really scary 2011 Scream Team Critics. Over the next few weeks they will be visiting several of the Haunted Attractions in the Denver Metro area and reporting back on some of the really unique and terrifying experiences waiting for you at several of the Haunts this year. Here is what they have to say about some of the Haunted Houses so far.
The 13th Door
This is the haunted house for those who like a more traditional haunt. A haunted hotel with a story and all the great scares you would expect. Great attention to detail makes this a fun and atmospheric haunt. You definitely want to check this one out. Combine this haunt with the one next door to it, Slaughter House Gulch for a great all around experience!
The Curse of Slaughter House Gulch
Love horror movies? Then this is the haunt for you. All your favorite slashers are here with lots of scares. Great actors and décor set the scene for tons of truly creepy moments. The changes and upgrades to this haunt for 2010 made it one of our favorites. We don’t want to give anything away but you don’t want to miss this one.
The 25th Hour
The newly decorated entrance is quite impressive. The lightshow shows promise (once they add some more songs) and it's size is enormous. Some funny moments at the beginning lulled us into a false sense of security, but the scares are definitely here! Kudos to the clown that scared one of our raters throughout the haunt!
City of the Dead
As usual our friends at City of the Dead have gone above and beyond. This haunt is a total sensory overload of terror. If you love zombies this is the ultimate zombie experience. The actors are great and try as we might we couldn’t get any of them to break character. Go out of your way to hit this haunt it’s well worth it!
