Final Score: 8.67

Summary:

Scarevania has been terrifying Muncie, Indiana for 5 years and counting with great success! There is a new addition for 2011 that you will experience outdoors! Brian Blair, the haunt’s owner, also runs Pumpkin Pulp Productions with the assistance of his wife where they provide haunts with their own custom-designed props and d


Cast: 8.68

This haunt has some of the most energetic and extreme actors in the area! Nearly every room inside the building was filled with characters screaming at the top of their lungs just waiting for a chance to taste some blood. All 30-40 volunteer actors are interactive and in context with the haunt’s originality theme. Every season, Scarevania’s veterans teach their scaring experience to the newbies in the haunt so everyone is on the same level. Among the most horrific are Bayou Billy, Frances D. Pickles, the butcher and Nibbles the Clown who would love to have you come see them!


Costuming: 8.52

Almost every costume in Scarevania is in context with the haunt’s theme, made in-house and just as original as its cast. Detail is given to every article so that it’s just as horrific as its surroundings. Makeup is applied by a team of 3 artists that also perform double-duty as actors in the haunt. Masks used on characters like Bayou Billy and the butcher are also created by the haunt’s owner/Pumpkin Pulp Productions to ensure originality and detail. The butcher’s costume and mask even won an award at a regional haunt convention!


Customer Service: 8.17

Ample lighting is provided where needed with the exception of the parking lot which is pretty dim after dark, but is still easily navigated. All safety and fire codes are up to date with emergency exits and procedures in place in case they are needed. A custom-painted, large box truck is located at the end of the drive so you know when you get there. The haunt’s friendly and easily-recognizable staff are able to answer any questions you may have. The scares start as soon as you get in line with horrific characters that keep you entertained while you wait, that is if the dozens of screaming people running for their cars aren’t enough! Be sure to swing back by the ticket booth before you leave and check out their awesome, custom-designed t-shirts and tank tops also designed by Pumpkin Pulp Productions.


Atmosphere: 8.33

The sick and warped minds behind Scarevania and Pumpkin Pulp Productions are evidently present as soon as you lay eyes on the building. Frankenstein, the grim reaper, a crazy-looking large lady, other ornaments and signs decorate the building which gives an overall feeling of, well, insecurity to say the least. Sound effects are just as demented as the rest of the haunt, especially when combined with spine-chilling screams, blood-covered walls and limb-hacking chainsaws.


Special Effects: 8.85

Wow! Everything is so original we don’t know where to start. Props and special effects are home-built and show great detail. There are several giant props throughout the haunt including a life-size zombie rocking horse, a ‘tree man,’ a shark’s head, and a teddy bear-eating 7-foot bear. Padded rooms with a patient swinging from the ceiling, walls covered with baby blood, ‘pumpkin heads’ and other distraught terrors are also original accents that you won’t find at many other haunted attractions. Strategic lighting, fog and strobes are used to enhance a feeling of disorientation. We’d like to keep going, but you’ll have to see for yourself the other gut-wrenching scenes and figures that this haunt beholds.


Theme: 9.17

This haunt is based on originality. The owners design and create props and effects to sell to other haunted attractions so everything you see in here has been created by them! From the costumes, characters, and the plentiful d


Fright Effect: 8.37

Scarevania and Pumpkin Pulp Productions know how to scare Indiana! Eye-popping screams, half-human half-animal characters and the smell of 2-cycle fumes (chainsaws) combine to create one of the most extreme environments in the area! The interactive cast also makes sure everyone in the group gets a scare. Some scares can be predicted if you’re an avid haunter, but the sheer chaos that follows will keep almost anyone on their toes. The outdoor section of the haunt is not as extreme, but instead is more intimidating with Bayou Billy and horrific acts of slaughter amid the eerie surroundings that the staff likes to call the ‘Haunted Bayou.’


Value: 9.28

General admission tickets are $10.00 per person which is an awesome deal for what you will encounter in Scarevania! Though it may not be the longest haunt (estimated 10-15 minutes including the new outdoor section), it may be the craziest time you’ve spent in a haunted house! No V.I.P. tickets are available this year but there is a $1 off coupon on the haunt’s website so be sure to print one off! If you ‘wanna see something really scary’ for the Halloween season, make sure Scarevania is on your list of haunts to see!
