Dragons House of Horrors has been frightening New Mexicans for many years. Last year due to the circumstances of the pandemic they had a drive-through attraction. This year they moved to a new location in Downtown Albuquerque. Filling an entire nightclub, Dragons House of Horrors weaves around the space filling every nook and cranny with frights. While waiting for entry into the haunt there are facilities and a few creatures stalking about.

Throughout your journey through the Haunted Asylum one will encounter a variety of monsters and minions waiting to terrorize you. As you make your way through, you will see a multitude of minions, ranging from friendly to diabolical. Make sure you don’t linger around for too long around the bar, they seem to be running low on liquids.

The creatures made some truly bone-chilling sounds, some of which I could not figure out how they could be made. Each interaction was unique; each character had their own dialogue and responded to my reactions. There was some very creative use of multiple scare points from the same actor as well.

Throughout Dragons House of Horrors, there was very creative use of costuming. Each actor had a complete ensemble that fit well within the domain they were in. In some of the compact areas, I even noticed that the clothing had just the right amount of wear.

The makeup was also very well done; each creature had great blending and also makeup on the hands which made the character more believable. I also greatly appreciated that when the character had a mask they had blended well with black makeup around the eyes under the mask. Also, the face masks that the characters wore were well-themed and detailed. Each costume fit the scenes there were in well, no character seemed out of place.

When using the address listed for the haunted house on their website and Facebook it was fairly easy to find the jaunt using a navigation app. Traveling throughout the attraction the path was easy to navigate and I appreciated the reflective strips on the stairs to make them easier to navigate.

Safety precautions for the haunt were also great, each character was wearing a facial covering and keeping a distance due to Covid protocols, there were also several hand sanitizer stations spread throughout. Each member of staff I encountered was phenomenal, there were very knowledgeable and friendly.

Dragons House of Horrors used a variety of special effects throughout the haunt. The creepy sounds from hidden areas as well as from the actors filled the haunt with an evil soundscape. Throughout the journey, each room had sets and props that fit the area, in some areas, there was some lack of theming and blank walls. Walking through the haunt at times I forgot I was walking through a haunted house and thought I walked into an asylum from years past. The special effects were also timed great for the perfect scare.

Dragons House of Horrors has a mix of different themes, with each section flowing into the next with little break in the action. Some of the most believable areas were when the haunt used the areas of the nightclub to their advantage, like the bar and stage area. The location of the haunt and the different levels you have to navigate definitely improved the uniqueness of the haunt.

Scare Factor: 7.15

Dragons House of Horrors keeps the scares coming from the second you enter to the moment you exit the haunt. There are several moments that made me jump, and I was constantly looking behind me to see if I had another creepy companion to accompany me on my journey.

Going through the haunt by myself the actors were very skilled at getting me when I least expected it. I appreciated how several of the scares came from places I was not expecting and I did appreciate the scares coming from the ground. The scare tactics were also varied, with a great mix of scares coming from the actors and effects. One thing I noticed was there was no definitive ending; I just reached an exit without a final scare.

From the moment I entered to the moment I exited, I spent 10 minutes navigating the haunt. There were several actors I could see to entertain those waiting in line and there is a bar with a great offering of beverages.
