Overall Feedback: Hundred Acres Manor blew us away!! Hundred Acres Manor provides a top notch experience and is definitely a must see haunt! By far one of our group favorites thus far this season!! We had members attend this haunt in years past and they truly nailed it this year! The amount of changes that this haunt has made is insane. They feature SIX attractions, two of which are brand new for this season, plus they also have TWO escape rooms. Our group arrived around 8:00pm on Saturday and this haunt was already loaded with customers. This haunt was PACKED and had such a lively energy to it. Fortunately Hundred Acres Manor offers SKIP THE LINE passes for patrons who do not feel like waiting in the general admission line. Something that you’ll find at Hundred Acres Manor is a great experience for one of the lowest price points in the haunt industry. For only $20 you will get to experience SIX top notch attractions and experience tons of laughs and scares for the better part of an hour (and only an extra $10 for the skip the line passes). This kind of performance is almost unheard of at this price level. Once you arrive and purchase your tickets, all customers will be directed to either the general admission line or the VIP line. All customers wait in the same line to enter the haunt. Once inside the attraction, you will experience all SIX attractions back to back, totalling at least 50-60 minutes of in your face interaction, laughs, and spine-tingling scares. Despite the large crowds, somehow Hundred Acres Manor managed to keep groups spaced out quite well. There were a few moments where our group caught up to another group but shortly thereafter, we had space in between one another again. This definitely made for a more enjoyable experience as we weren’t able to witness the scares before we reached the scare. Scare factor definitely exists in this haunt! There was pretty much non-stop screams and shrieks of fear heard during our entire journey! Each member of our group was startled multiple times by well timed pop scares and creepy actors. The actors all featured very realistic and detailed costumes and makeup. There were some scenes that had some lackluster actors who didn’t feature the same intensity as many of the other actors encountered. The actor rating at Hundred Acres Manor could definitely improve if the actors can provide a more consistent performance throughout the entire haunt! But overall, this wasn’t an issue with our experience as the majority of the actors did exceptionally well! We remember questioning multiple times in each attraction if some of the creatures and actors encountered were truly real and not just a costume. The same goes for the props! Geez, we didn’t know a haunt could make such realistic scenes and have as many high quality props and animatronics as Hundred Acres Manor did. Walking through Hundred Acres Manor was like walking through a real life movie, as each scene played into the next scene and they somehow did a spookingly good job at maintaining a theme throughout the entirety of each of the SIX attractions! We really liked how the scenes were both indoor and outdoor and they incorporated both into what the scene was trying to convey. We remember walking through different caves, tunnels, catacombs, etc. and questioning if we were still inside a haunted attraction. And we can’t forget the swamp scene!!! By far a group favorite this season! We truly felt like we were down by the swamp and you better keep your eyes peeled for the big alligator that truly came out of nowhere!!! And talk about coming out of nowhere, that is a great way to describe the actors and a good handful of the props at Hundred Acres Manor. We remembering jumping and being startled by actors and props and then questioning where the heck they came from. They truly hit a homerun with pop scares! It was really tough to determine the overall scare factor for this haunt as our group members weren’t overly terrified (although we were caught by surprise multiple times by well placed pop scares), however like we mentioned before, we heard tons of screams from other patrons. Therefore the overall scare factor could swing anywhere between an 8 or 9. Across the board at Hundred Acres Manor they provide a truly quality experience with just the right amount of laughs and screams. We can safely say that any haunt enthusiast will definitely enjoy this haunt. Make sure when you go to Hundred Acres Manor that you take your time going through the haunt so that you too can admire the detailed work and insanely awesome props/scenes! A truly terrifying night is awaiting you at Hundred Acres Manor so definitely make sure you visit them before the season ends!! When you visit Hundred Acres Manor, make sure to tell them that York Fright Review Squad sent you their way!!!
