Overall Feedback: Hotel of Horror was a first time visit for all of our group members! We attended this haunt after the completion of reviewing Halls of Horrors, which is only located approximately 25 minutes from Hotel of Horror (we definitely encourage all haunt enthusiasts to attend both haunts!). From the time we got out of our cars to the time we got back in them at the end of the night, the same eerie and creepy atmosphere lingered around the haunt. The hotel facade is very creepy looking to the eye and it truly gets you into the mood for a fun and frightening experience! Hotel of Horror definitely goes above and beyond to make sure all visitors enjoy their journey. All staff that we encountered were very friendly and we loved the amount of space they put between groups. However, with the spacing of groups comes a longer wait. We definitely encourage you to either attend on one of HOH slower nights or purchase the VIP pass! Our group went through Altered Nightmares first. This attraction was like walking through a real life nightmare! The actors brought the scenes to life and picked out each customer's personal phobias and then utilized those phobias to terrorize the customers. The Hotel of Horror attraction came second and this ended up being our group favorite of the evening! The mad doctors, nurses, and patients that we're running about the hotel were truly hungry for some fresh blood. Across the board the actors really provided an interactive and intense show. Yes you may not encounter some of the most mind blowing props at Hotel of Horror but each scene was unique to the haunt and there were some really neat special effects! On top of the two walk through haunts, HOH also has a museum filled with all sorts of old artifacts! Overall, Hotel of Horror was definitely worth a visit and is an attraction that all haunt enthusiast should plan to attend!

Individual Attraction Review:

Attraction Name: Altered Nightmares

Attraction Scare Factor Rating (scale of 1-10): 7

Actor Rating (scale of 1-10): 9

Likes: The overall facade of the hotel where this attraction lies is very eerie! As you wait in line the eerie feel continues as you wait in what seems like an old and creepy basement. Something our group really appreciated was the fact that we were split into small groups and sent into the haunt every couple minutes. This ensured you wouldn't catch up with another group or see what scares may be lying ahead. Altered Nightmares pretty much brings your childhood nightmares to life and uses your fears to provide a more interactive and horrifying experience! We can't say enough about how awesome the actors were! All actors stayed in character and put on a great show. Each and every actor encountered was more deranged and creepy than the one before. This attraction doesn't feature the high quality props seen at some haunts but all of the props utilized were truly unique to this attraction! There were also some insane special effects witnessed and endured. A lot of screams were also heard throughout the attraction!

Dislikes: The only downfall was a lack of actors throughout the haunt which lead to some areas of dead space. Although, the actors we encountered made up for the lack of overall actors. We'd love to see more actors placed around this attraction to ultimately help provide a more eerie and terrifying experience.

Likes: This attraction was clearly the group favorite of the night. We can't say enough about the overall creepiness of the actors encountered in this attraction! Hotel of Horror is your chance to see first hand all of the medical mishaps that lie within the haunt! The patients and doctors encountered all truly carried the eerie and scary atmosphere from start to end! The scenes were all very detailed and had a lot of quality and unique props throughout. The attic scene was a group favorite, some really creepy souls were lurking up there!! The actors skits all matched the scenes which made for a more frightening experience. Like the other attraction offered, all customers are split into small groups and are spaced out by a few minutes!
