Overall Feedback: Reaper’s Revenge sets the tone and high energy just moments after leaving the parking lot (Customers do have to pay $3 for parking per carload)! Pop scares and multiple actors were seen before we even reached the ticket booth. At Reaper’s Revenge the initial wait time may be a long one, as everyone waits in the same line as you begin your evening with the Haunted Hayride. However, once on the hay wagon you will not be disappointed. The long initial wait is utilized that way you do not need to wait for a long period of time for the other three attractions offered. This definitely helps Reaper’s Revenge carry their fun and scary atmosphere across all four of their attractions. Each and every haunted attraction offered at Reaper’s Revenge features a new and one of a kind experience. It was great to see such a wide variety of offerings in one single haunt. All of our group members were in total awe and truly didn’t have any dislikes across the board! It’s clearly obvious that Reaper’s Revenge spends plenty of time training and preparing their actors for the haunt season. All of the actors were top notch and we even questioned if some were still human! The props utilized throughout the attractions are definitely not store bought, they are high quality handmade props that are so detailed we questioned at times what was real and what was fake. Scares were easily found and heard across the board at Reaper’s Revenge. During our walk through the carnival our group specifically remembers hearing the screams of other customers echoing through the woods. Reaper’s Revenge truly features hair-raising scares, nightmarish scenes, and menacing actors! One of the best and most consistent haunted attractions that we’ve ever attended over the years! A more than one of a kind experience can be found at Reaper’s Revenge. Almost everything is truly unique to their haunt and isn’t seen anywhere else in the area! Our group strongly encourages all haunt enthusiasts to make the trip to Reaper’s Revenge! Our group can easily say that you will not be disappointed! When you make the trip to visit Reaper’s Revenge, make sure to tell them that YORK FRIGHT REVIEW SQUAD sent you their way!!

Individual Attraction Review:

Attraction Name: Haunted Hayride

Overall Attraction Rating (scale of 1-10): 10

Attraction Scare Factor Rating (scale of 1-10): 8

Actor Rating (scale of 1-10): 9

Likes: This haunted hayride was like no other hayride we’ve ever been on. It definitely set the bar high for the rest of the attractions! The uniqueness of each and every scene was truly mind blowing. Reaper’s Revenge has many scenes that are unique to their haunt and definitely won’t be seen at other attractions. However, they also touch on some of the largely known halloween characters (Jason Voorhees, The Ring, Michael Myers, etc.) which ultimately turns out to be just the right combination of original and one of a kind. The atmosphere is very eerie and they utilize the darkness very well! Some amazing and what definitely seemed to be homemade props were utilized throughout this entire attraction! The actors were spot on and were definitely some of the best we’ve seen all season. After the completion of each scene, our group was anxiously waiting to see what the next scene would have to offer. Our group can safely say that this hayride was by far our favorite this season!!

Dislikes: NONE!

Attraction Name: Lost Carnival

Overall Attraction Rating (scale of 1-10): 10

Attraction Scare Factor Rating (scale of 1-10): 8

Actor Rating (scale of 1-10): 9

Likes: All we can say is WOW!! The Lost Carnival at Reaper’s Revenge was the best clown themed haunted attraction that we’ve ever been through! We cannot say enough about the uniqueness of this attraction. From a traditional clown funhouse section to carnival games, to a carousel, to a mind reader… Lost Carnival truly had it all!! Again, the actors were spot on and interacted with each and every customer that came through the carnival. And we can’t forget how they begin the start of this attraction. We don’t want to give anything away but we can safely say that you’ll be truly amazed! The Lost Carnival not only featured some high quality scares but there were also many deep belly laughs on our journey through the carnival.

Dislikes: NONE!

Attraction Name: Pitch Black

Overall Attraction Rating (scale of 1-10): 10

Attraction Scare Factor Rating (scale of 1-10): 9

Actor Rating (scale of 1-10): 8

Likes: Pitch Black was exactly as it sounds. The dark nature of this haunt is creepy enough but Reaper’s Revenge went to the next level and really made this Pitch Black attraction one of the best all dark attractions that we’ve ever been through! They utilized loud sounds, actors, tight twists and turns to really take this attraction to the next level. Nothing better than walking in the dark worrying about what you might encounter next. We definitely left this attraction with our hearts racing and short of breath. Our group had soooooo much fun in PITCH BLACK!

Dislikes: None!

Attraction Name: Sector 13

Overall Attraction Rating (scale of 1-10): 10

Attraction Scare Factor Rating (scale of 1-10): 9

Actor Rating (scale of 1-10): 10

Likes: From the time you enter the ticket taking line to the time you exit, all customers become a part of the act! Sector 13 is the last bridge to the relatively normal Western US as the Eastern half of the US has suffered a huge bio-nuclear attack. If you make it through Sector 13 than you survived the nuclear attack. However, the cannibalistic mutants that you will encounter definitely do not make escaping very easy. The first few scenes of Sector 13 are security related and we were definitely intimidated by the intensity of the security guards. You truly felt as if this was real life and if you didn’t follow commands from the guards, you would be tossed to the mutants that would turn you into one of them! The actors in this attraction were definitely some of the best we’ve ever seen in our years of attending haunts! The atmosphere and tone that was set in the first few scenes was carried through the entire attraction with not even one hiccup on mishap. Although the wait for this attraction was twice as long as the others, it was well worth the wait. Our group strongly encourages you to take a few moments to take in all of the detailed work that is seen throughout Sector 13!!

Dislikes: NONE!
